Iron Man is back in black

Stealth Iron Man (10)

Back in Iron Man 3, the Mandarin boasted how Tony Stark would never be prepared for him. How the armoured Avenger would never see him coming. Well invisibility is a two-way street! And if Tony Stark had worn this armour instead, his third movie would have been a helluva lot shorter. Prepare for the Jaime Foxx Iron Man armour!

I mean stealth armour, dammit.  A new variant based on the 1/6th scale Mark VII suit of Stark technology, the stealth suit  features a jet black paint job that ironically makes it stand out more than any other Iron Man replica. Metallic and matte black paints, oh my:

The Mark VII (Stealth Mode Version) Collectible Figure is highly detailed featuring multiple layers and various shades of metallic and matte black color with digital camouflage design, translucent black chest armor and articulated flaps on back of legs, Stark Industries decals at various parts of the armor, LED light-up function, interchangeable armor parts, and a specially designed dynamic figure stand.

I think I’m in love. Much like any other Iron Man figure, this one will have plenty of accessories:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of Mark VII in stealth mode
  • Specially applied multiple layers and shades of metallic and matte black-colored painting with digital camouflage design on armor
  • Translucent black removable chest armor and articulated flaps on back of legs
  • Approximately 30 cm tall
  • Over 30 points of articulations
  • LED-lighted eyes and circle-shaped Arc Reactor on chest (white light, battery operated)
  • Stark Industries decals on various parts of the armor
  • One (1) pair of interchangeable forearm rockets
  • One (1) pair of interchangeable wrist guards for posing with repulsor firing palms
  • Three (3) pairs of interchangeable palms including:
    – One (1) pair with movable fingers and light-up repulsors (white light, battery operated)
    – One (1) pair of fists
    – One (1) pair of repulsor firing palms with light-up function (white light, battery operated)
  • Two (2) sets of interchangeable shoulder armors (normal & missile styles)
  • Articulations on waist armor which allow flexible movement
  • Fully deployable air flaps on the back of the armor

Besides an aversion to the letter “U”, that’s a great looking figure. Which as you might expect, comes with a hefty price tag. $339.99 to be exact. So, anyone know a good bank to rob? You’re probably also wondering why anyone would buy a variant of an Iron Man figure that they already own. So let me end this post, with the only way I know how when it comes to answering such a question. With a Simpsons clip:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
