Back in October, Hot Toys announced that it was going to remake the Iron Man Mk I armor. Upon that news, people began to rage over their lost "investments". Meanwhile, I lost my mind at the prospect at finally being able to get one, not to mention how good this new figure would be. Hot Toys decided to ring in the New Year with a preview of the armor made from a box of scraps.
As you can tell, it's something that is going to be amazingly well-done and constructed. The paint job has been completed by the artist, Lalla. The weathering effects look amazing and Lalla's work on this piece is something I'd like to see done on some of their other figures. There's still no price or release info, but just put "expensive" and "2012" and you have the info you need to make your decision.
