NEON TECH IRON MAN MARK IV 1/6 Collectible Figure from Hot Toys
I know what you're going to say: "NOT ANOTHER IRON MAN FROM HOT TOYS??!" - understandably so, for folks tired of needing to collect "Iron Men" - "Cashing In On the Desire!" = But who can you blame? The maker for making things that people want to buy? Or people who continue to buy things that the maker makes?
I don't have am answer, and frankly I don't need to give one, and neither is it necessary for me to give one too. I don't collect Hot Toys, much less "HT Iron Men" (*Although I did used to author a dedicated Iron Man toy-blog), so I cannot feel the sting of constant pseudo-"betrayal" certain collectors feel each time a new version of Iron Man is announced ... but then again, collectors have a choice, and there are people who apparently constatly wants to BUY "Iron Man" collectibles. This is a "business" after all = to make things that sell, that people want to buy, innit? :)
Be that as it may, and regardless of intent or public feedback, THIS particular piece looks so utterly EPIC! One peek at it immediately reminded me of a TRON we would've loved to enjoy, had it continued forth beyond it's 28 year old sequel from the O.G. 1982 Disney film. Sure, we've got the LEGO set, but c'mon - amidst all other sequels in pop culture land, we can't have another TRON sequel? LOL
Now if THIS Neon Tech Iron Man had it's own to-scale 1/6 "Light Cycle"? ALL BETS ARE OFF! LOL
Hey, I am alsways down for "remixes", so this'll work for my delicate senses (if not my diminished bank account, of course :p), which I will continue to admire and long from from the comforts of my desktop screen... *miffled-man-sobs*
