Hot Toys has announced the first in its Diecast line of figures – the Iron Patriot from Iron Man 3. I am not sure whether this line is a competitive response to other diecast 1/6 products, like those of Singapore’s Play Imaginative, or just a natural line extension into an even more premium product. Either way, with increased shipping weight and more expensive materials, I am curious how these will be priced.
The Iron Patriot will have light-up features and a removable face plate revealing Rhodey (with Don Cheadle’s likeness, not yet finalized) but not much else – I wonder if they reduced the number of features to help keep the cost down. We’ll have to wait for pre-orders from Sideshow and others to get the full picture.
