Iron Man 3 is set to hit theaters next month.  Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a fair bit longer for this special edition, 1/6 scale Iron Man 3 figurine from Hot Toys.

The Mark XLII Limited Edition Collectible Die-Cast Iron Man figure will hit store shelves – so to speak – as early as the first quarter of 2014.  Say what?!  By then Iron Man 4 will probably be a direct to DVD release and Robert Downey Jr.’s career will be in the proverbial sh*tter.  I’m kidding.  My point?  I didn’t think much of Iron Man 2, and still believe the first Iron Man finished poorly.  So suffice it to say I don’t have high hopes for Iron Man 3, though this installment will be directed by Shane Black – thank god.

That all being said, the detail on the  Mark XLII Limited Edition Collectible Die-Cast Iron Man figure is uncanny.  First off, it’s made from a die-cast material, which is specially designed to look more like the real thing, so to speak.  Other details include:  Battle damaged head sculpt with helmet, alternate helmeted head with light-up function, over 36 points of articulations, LED-lighted eyes and circle-shaped RT on chest, interchangeable battle damaged mask, pair of damaged shoulder armor,  chest armor, damaged chest armor, damaged biceps armor, and much more.

Sorry, no word on a price just yet, but it’ll cost you.
