Although “Iron Man 3” came out almost four years ago, top-shelf toymaker Hot Toys has announced a new figurine based on Tony Stark’s Mark XLI “Bones” armor from the movie’s iconic Iron Legion.
The armor, which Stark created at some point between “The Avengers” and “Iron Man 3,” sports a barebones design, with thin plating and exposed internal components that make it look almost skeletal. In the film, the highly versatile armor was able to break apart and fly in separate pieces, a feature the 1/6th scale figure will honor, with a unique stand capable of displaying the suit either divided into its parts or fully assembled.
In the film, the armor was black with gold plating; Hot Toys’ take on the suit, however, casts it in Iron Man’s iconic red-and-gold finish. The figure will boast over 36 points of articulation and LED light-up functionality.
The Mark XLI armor will be first available at the upcoming “Marvel Age of Heroes Exhibition” in Tokyo, Japan. The announcement mentions that the figure will only be available in select markets so to check with official Hot Toys’ distributors for details.
The Hong Kong-based toymaker has produced several different figurines based on the suits seen towards the end of “Iron Man 3.” They’ve also created tie-in figurines for “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Suicide Squad,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”
“Iron Man 3,” in which the Mark XLI first appears, is available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download now.
