The Iron Man 3 movie is coming in just three months and it is time to activate the armor! In view of the high anticipation of the Mark XLII character, Hot Toys is thrilled to present the 1/6th scale Power Pose Mark XLII Collectible Figurine from the new Power Pose Series from the Iron Man 3 movie as the debut of the Series, highlighting the powerful poses performed, LED light-up functions and figure stand with Mark XLII and the Stark Industries nameplate.
Leading the Series is the highly anticipated 1/6th scale Power Pose Mark XLII Collectible Figurine which is semi-articulated, featuring the flying and battle poses, ability to perform waist and neck twist actions closed to that in the movie, LED light-up functions and figure stand with Mark XLII and the Stark Industries nameplate.
Please refer to the attached photos and spec below for your reference.
Hot Toys releasing this Power Pose Series only goes to prove one thing - that all the previously released Hot Toys 1/6 scale Iron Man 12-inch collectible figures are not designed to strike any dramatic pose other then the obligatory stand and fire pose OR stand and look pretty pose because any further stretching and bending of the limbs will inadvertently cause the paint to chip or damage or break some body part. Hence the need for this Power Pose Series which is just some nice words for Non-movable, non-poseable statute! Collectors are telling Hot Toys they want a more pose-able Iron Man figure and Hot Toys answer is A STATUE. That's what army folks call "KISS" which is Keep It Simple, Stupid! But Hot Toys calls it PPS - Please Pay Some-more!

Couldn't Hot Toys have thought of a better way to pose the so called "flying" mode than a transparent stick / pole up his crotch? The "transparent pillar" (as Hot Toys calls it) going up his a$$ho!e doesn't sit well with me. Ouch!
I still prefer Medicom Toys clear stands which allow you to pose the 12-inch figure in some nice poses without having the stick go up their posterior. See my post HERE where I showed some different types of figure display stands available in the market and how they work :)
