The HPP armors are the only thing that would get me back into collecting Hot Toys now. The last one we got was announced over 5.5 years ago though and it was a shades which was a repaint of Shotgun. The last with a completely new mold I believe was actually Shotgun which was over 7.5 years ago.I would love it if they made a NEW house party protocol armor or 15.
Agreed. I was thinking that if we were to get another go at the mk6 that it would be a diecast version of that one from IM2 and not just a re-release of the previous Avengers version. Especially considering how good the 1/4 IM2 mk6 looks. Then we’d have a base to go along with the War Machine mk1 reissue
So on the original baby-gantry
base that came with the diecast Mark VI, the arms could slide up and down the gold ring to change their position, as well as fold away into the ring (some old old photos of mine).

But on the new fullscale deal, I see that there are just fixed positions the arms plug in to. Hopefully they’re magnetic instead of friction fit so they’re easy enough to unplug and move around.

Then if a person wants the armless look, they don’t fold away but rather just get removed.

Nice they finally split the helmet up, the lack of that has always looked really dumb in these gantry releases
Still marketing IM2 damage under an Avengers logo though. Of course a real Avengers BD couldn't be done with 2 swap outs, so take the lazy route as usual
so in all the pics of this i have seen the gantry never closes up at the top doesnt this seem odd or do you think this was a way to reduce the height. i believe the 3rd party version did close.
No. If purchased without the gantry, you’re just getting a different Tony head and a lesser base compared to the diecast 1.0.Avengers version...but the BD is still the same IM2 version.
Is this really a 2.0?
Huh, you’re right. And the stairs are behind him before a single piece of the suit is removed. This 1:9 scale transformable version is actually more accurate:look again its a full upright ring until he is on the 4th light up step then it splits
