If you have been a fan of the Hot Toys Marvel movie toys but haven’t had the chance to buy any due to the limited quantity and price this might be some very good news.
Tamashii Nations the master toy artists behind the S.H.Figuarts Dragon Ball Z line and the super high detailed Monster Arts toys are going to be releasing a Heroic Action figure series. The first in the series is Iron Man mk VI and War Machine.
For 6-7 inch toys they are probably going to retail at
about $60 which is a lot considering there are a lot of other alternative Iron Man toys. The main difference with Figuarts is they will probably have all the detail of the Hot Toys figures along with a whole load of interchangeable parts.
Going off the first official picture Tamashii have released it looks like they will also have built in electronics and have a release date of about April 2013 as they have a few other big releases this year.
