Check out Kotobukiya Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark 43 ARTFX Statue

Kotobukiya last brought you full size ARTFX Iron Man armors from the movies with Iron Man 3, and now we’re expanding your collection with one of the stars of the upcoming blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron! In that film Robert Downey Jr. reprises his born-to-play role of Tony Stark while cutting edge special effects bring his armored forms to life like never before. If you’ve been keeping up we last saw the Mark 42 armor in the last Iron Man film, and so naturally the next step in the Armored Avenger’s development is Age of Ultron’s Iron Man Mark 43!

In the Iron Man sequels and the first Avengers film we’ve seen Tony Stark continue to modify and improve his armors, with Iron Man 3 really showing off the range of possibilities in purpose-built systems. In Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man returns to a more classically-inspired look with the Mark 43, similar in shape and size to the previous favorite Mark 42. A direct descendent, the new version is a sleek machine with overlapping plates and a similar segmented look. The new Iron Man stands ready for battle in a classic pose with a slightly angled upper body, hands balled into fists at his sides, and his armored head tilted downward ominously. The Mark 43 continues the red and gold color scheme the fans know and love but features a return to scarlet dominating the armor; gold appears mostly on the limbs, down the sides of the torso, and of course on the faceplate. Also like the previous armor, Iron Man Mark 43 features the round Arc Reactor in its chest.

Sculpted by MIC, Iron Man Mark 43 stands just over 11 inches tall (1/6th scale) on a special Avengers logo base with LED lights integrated in the eyes, chest and palms. Just like the previous Iron Man films ARTFX Statues, the Mark 43 is loaded with incredible sculpted and painted details bringing the armored suit to life like never before. Arriving later this year after the release of the film, the Mark 43 is sure to be the centerpiece of your Avengers: Age of Ultron collection!
