Many expected it was coming and thankfully it did. Hot Toys just announced the first ever 1/4th scale Iron Man collectible figure based on Iron Man Mark XLIII suit as it appears on the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie which is to come out later this month.
Hot Toys has of course released 1/4 scale figures before but for Iron Man this is the first time. This also means that this is the closest thing we can have our hands on to owning a life-sized Tony Stark/Iron Man suit. The figure Mark 43 figure stands 20 inches and it is fully articulated on every part of the suit you look at not to mention that the statue also lights up in several places including the eyes on the helmet. Removable tiny parts and extra parts are also part of the package to add some life to it.
The most exciting thing we look forward to this figure, aside from the super detailed render of the whole suit, is the unmasked head of Tony Stark which is also highly and sophisticatedly crafted to look so much like Robert Downey Jr (the actor who plays the character in the movie). See images below from Hot Toys website.
