Time to dress up Tony Stark in his trademark 1/6 scale civilian outfit as seen in "The Avengers"

Marvel's The Avengers (classified as Marvel Avengers Assemble in the UK and Ireland) or simply The Avengers is a 2012 American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. The film is scripted and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey, Jr. (Tony Stark / Iron Man), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers / Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Dr Bruce Banner / HULK), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton / Hawkeye), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Stellan Skarsgård (Dr Erik Selvig) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury). In The Avengers, Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., recruits Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and Thor to form a team that must stop Thor's adoptive brother Loki from subjugating Earth.

When not in his armor suit, Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark dressed in his very distinctive civilian attire of Black Sabbath T-shirt over a long sleeve tee and dark gray pants. And 1/6 scale manufacturers (not one but TWO companies) have managed to cash in on this particular outfit and are offering it in 1/6 scale to collectors.

From MC Toys comes this 1/6 scale Black Sabbath T-shirt Set. ITEM: MCF-017, Product name: Black Sabbath T-shirt Set will come with Black Sabbath Short Sleeve silk-screen printed Tee, Dark Grey Long Sleeve Tee, Men's dark gray jeans / pants and Pampa Boots. Scroll down to see Asmus Toys Avengers' Tony Costume set.

There's also the Asmus Toys Avengers' Tony Costume set. The set includes: A printed T-Shirt with decorative sleeves, deep blue trousers, a pair of socks, a pair of black shoes and a pair of metal MK VII bracelet

According to Asmus Toys, the clothing is designed to match the clothes that Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark wore in the Avengers. It has the exact same print on the front chest area of his T-shirt, and the exact same color combinations of his clothing.

The highlight of this set is the pair of MK VII detecting bracelet which Tony wore to suit up his newest Iron Man armor suit in the film. The bracelet was built exactly like it is designed in the film, and the final product will be presented in full metal cast.

hi. do you have an idea what type of body is this? thanks

alex teo said...

sorry but I'm no expert. however, the first figure on top (no head) used by MC Toys looks like a muscular body because of the bulging biceps which isn't right since Robert Downey Jr was no Arnold Schwarzenegger. The second figure shown appears to be a True Type figure and I would most probably be using the Narrow Shoulder version for that :)

I used a hair dryer to heat up and soften the shoes before putting them on. I didn't have any problems with mine - check out my toy blog post > http://toyhaven.blogspot.sg/2013/04/customized-16-scale-light-up-mark-vi.html
