While Hot Toys unveiled a slew of upcoming figures at San Diego Comic-Con, they still had some in the tank for Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong 2013 this past weekend.
- The Crow – Brandon Lee as Eric Draven – believe it or not, I’ve never seen the movie – should I? Having only seen screen caps of the movie, it’s hard for me to judge how good the likeness is. What’s the consensus here?
- Cloud from The Storm Riders – likewise for this figure, I’ve never read the manga, which (according to my quick internet search) has been running since 1989. Wow. For fans, I hope that Hot Toys will get around to releasing Wind, the other main character from the story. Not sure if this one will get a U.S. release.
- Tony Stark in his mechanic gear from Iron Man 3 – with the hoodie and sunglasses I’ll think of this as the Unabomber Tony. It’s only fair that if Hot Toys is going to make half a dozen or so Iron Man armors that got a few seconds of screen time that they make the outfit that we see Tony Stark in for most of the movie. But it does beg the question – if he could call all those armors for the final fight, why didn’t he call them sooner?
I haven’t checked for pre-orders yet, but I’d check out Sideshow first since they’re the U.S. distributor, especially if you’re looking for the exclusive items, which both the Crow (weather vane) and Tony (homemade wrist repulsor) have.

Iron Man 3: Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figurine
Tony Stark, the beloved hero and billionaire genius, faced some challenging issues in Iron Man 3. Terrorists badly injured his friend, destroyed his house, and kidnapped his girlfriend, but despite the downward spiral that he was in, Tony didn’t give up and was determined to take down The Mandarin.
Hot Toys is thrilled to introduce the Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figurine after the exciting scene where Tony Stark creates homemade weapons to infiltrate The Mandarin’s mansion.
The movie-accurate Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figurine is specially crafted based on the image of Robert Downey Jr. as the genius billionaire Tony Stark in his battle damaged civilian attire in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, an advanced body with light-up chest light and greatly detailed weapons and accessories.
It is now open for pre-order.
The bonus 1/6th scale Homemade Wrist Repulsor will be included for selected markets only.
The official product name for Iron Man 3: 1/6th scale Tony Stark (Mandarin Mansion Assault Version) Collectible Figurine is now changed to Iron Man 3: 1/6th scale Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figurine because of licensor’s comment.
