You Can Buy Your Own $8000 Iron Man Mark III Armor
After filling up on a $100 Pym-ini sandwich at Pym Test Kitchen, a “food innovation science lab” located in Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California, you can now suit-up in you’re very own Iron Man Mark III Super Hero suit… for about $8,000.
The Mark III Armor
Iron Man (A.K.A. Tony Stark), who is played by Robert Downey Jr. in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has worn many different versions of his famous armor over the years.
In the MCU, the Mark III was the third Iron Man suit built by Tony Stark.
It was an upgrade from the Mark II, and thus, the armor was the first of its kind to use the advanced on-board weapons system. It was also the first to adopt the classic red and gold color scheme.
The Mark III was introduced in 2008’s Iron Man (read our retro review here), which is also the movie in which the Ten Rings was introduced.
However, after Iron Man fights Iron Monger, the suit is heavily damaged and retired.
Even though the armor is not used in 2010’s Iron Man 2, the Mark III makes an appearance in Tony Stark’s Hall of Armors, along with the other original seven armors.
However, eventually, the Mark III is destroyed after the suit detonates during an attack on Tony Stark’s Malibu mansion in 2013’s Iron Man 3.
DCA’s $8000 Iron Man
F.R.I.D.A.Y. has returned, and she has rebuilt the Mark III.
Now, you can buy your very own life-size Iron Man suit for nearly $8,000 at the California Adventure theme park, according to Insider.at
Here are the important details about the item from Acuna:
The life-like Iron Man Mark III collectible statue is $7950.00, plus tax.
According to the store, you cannot use discounts to purchase the Marvel replica of your dreams (sorry legacy passholders).
Once purchased, you cannot return or exchange Iron Man. The replica also can’t be shipped internationally, to Alaska or Hawaii, or PO boxes. But for the lucky buyer, they’ll have to wait up to 120 days for delivery.
For anyone with the budget of Tony Stark, or the ability to conjure money like the Scarlet Witch, you can purchase the Iron Man replica at the Stage 17 hanger.
Stage 17 was turned into a giant store during the COVID-19 pandemic and is now part of the Downtown Disney shopping district.
If you can’t go to Avengers Campus anytime soon, it’s a great alternative for checking out some of the amazing merchandise the park has to offer.
In addition to the $8000 Mark III, there is less expensive Marvel merchandise such an Iron Man helmet for $129.99 or an “Avengers Endgame”-inspired Iron Gauntlet for $377.00.
Visiting Avengers Campus
Avengers Campus opens at Disney California Adventure on Friday for California residents only, and the rest of the Disneyland Resort opens for out of state visitors starting on June 15, 2021.
