If you want to live like Tony Stark but lack the multibillion-dollar inheritance, technological savvy and the playboy swagger, the best place to start may be with your own Hall of Armor. That’s where this Iron Man Mark III life-size figure comes in.
Offered by Sideshow Collectibles, this limited-edition collectible stand 6 feet 10 inches tall on its illuminated base, making it a must-have for any underground lair, penthouse apartment, cliff-side pad, or … y’know, home office or basement. Whatever you might have.
Inspired by the suit in Marvel’s 2009 hit “Iron Man,” the red-and-gold suit features LED light-up eyes, arc reactor and palm repulsors, and subtly weathered armor. Those repulsors don’t actually fire, of course — although given the price of this replica, it’s understandable why you might think they would.
While you don’t need Stark’s fortune to purchase this life-size figure, you do need a fair amount of disposable income: It retails for $7,950 (plus shipping), although Sideshow offers a payment plan of $715.50 a month, if that helps. This isn’t something for the casual collector., if you hadn’t already guessed.
The limited-edition Iron Man Mark III life-size figure is available for preorder from Sideshow Collectibles. It’s expected to ship sometime between December 2017 and February 2018, which gives you time to clear floor space, or build that Hall of Armor.
