Hot Toys’ Origins Collection Adds Stealth Suit Iron Man and War Machine!
The Origins Collection by Hot Toys takes legendary comic book appearances straight from the pages and immortalizes them in immaculate figure form! Now Stealth Suit Iron Man and War Machine are joining the collection!
Hot Toys specializes in High-quality reproduction collectibles of characters and items from various pop-culture sources. Perhaps their most famous line is their 1:6th scale figure line which often features incredible realistic head sculpts, body sculpts, and accessories that often perfectly replicate how they appear in their source material.
The first appearance of Iron Man’s stealth suit (Iron Man Model #7) occurred in Iron Man #152 (1981). The suit, dubbed “Stealth Suit Iron Man” by fans, was created by Tony Stark to help in various espionage activities and was built to prioritize stealth and concealment. The Stealth suit lacks the typical offensive weaponry of most suits.
Crafted with a lighter frame and the ability to absorb radar detection. Illustrated in the comics often using a darkened sleek blue color palette, the figure matches this, with a beautiful lustrous blue that covers the entire figure. Like the comics, the figure lacks the typical Iron Man weaponry, instead favoring a more simplistic design.
Next up is the Stealth Suit’s complete opposite. The Iron Man Model 11, dubbed the “War Machine”, is adorned with offensive weaponry. First appearing in Iron Man #282 (1992), Tony Stark was the first to wear and utilize this armor. James “Rhodey” Rhodes would later don the armor becoming synonymous with both the name and suit.
The figure is almost a perfect replica of the War Machine’s first appearance. Covered in chrome-colored steel, with black highlighting the pauldrons, boots, gloves, and part of the helmet. A translucent plastic covers the chest where the trademark Iron Man arc reactor resides.
War Machine also features several different accessories. War Machine is equipped with his trademark back-mounted firearms, one for each side, with both having some articulation to move about. Further, War Machine has wrist-mounted blasters. All of this weaponry highlights the War Machine’s offensive prowess!
The figures are both done in 1:6th scale and stand at around 13 inches tall featuring a stellar 30 points of articulation, allowing you to pose them in just about any way you want! The preorders for each figure haven’t been announced but should be unveiled soon! For more info keep an eye on Hot Toys.com!
