Update 9/6: Play Imaginative contacted me and requested that we remove the spec sheets – they are still developing the product and understandably do not want to have incorrect info in circulation, as that would impact their customers and licensors. Thanks for understanding!
At the Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention, Play Imaginative announced that they would be making the Iron Man Mark VII armor in their Super Alloy line, which is 1/6 scale, super articulated, and made out of a lot of die cast pieces. Searching for more information, I found what look like spec sheets on the Toysdaily forum. I don’t think anyone would dispute that Hot Toys dominates 1/6 scale Iron Man, but I’m really curious to see what Play Imaginative will do.
The spec sheets certainly look promising – 50 points of articulation (including individually articulated fingers), LED lights in the helmet, ARC reactor, and hands, and a Hall of Armor lighted magnetic base. I hope this will live up to expectations – I love Hot Toys, but having an alternative will generate the kind of competition that will make the products better.
