We need John Wick with a pencil and with a book. ;)

That would be cool and probably easy to make.

Awesome!

What scale and brand is that Abrams tank?

Might have to get one myself.

 

Everything is 1/18 scale.  The Abrams is made by BBI.

Just got my Hot Toys Diecast Iron Man Mk 7!

 2026027862_IronManMk7.jpg.c099b16fb2f5f14acfaf46c8795bfd08.jpg

I had been waiting for this since I pre-ordered it from Sideshow Collectibles in July 2018. This is my first Diecast Hot Toys. I've heard so many good things about the diecast series, but had held off buying the other diecast Iron Man releases until this bad boy came out. The Mk 7 is my favorite Iron Man suit, and this thing is the best representation of the Mk 7 hands down across all brands and releases. This is definitely worthy to be the centerpiece of my Iron Man collection. :wub:

Damn man now you're making me consider getting one. I have the old Mark 7 from years ago, which still looks good but the newer diecast suits are better.

I did preorder the battle damaged Mark 85 to be the center of my Iron Man collection, but that won't be out till 2021. :blink:

There are a lot of comparison videos on Youtube showing the differences between the first release Hot Toys Mk 7 and the newer diecast version. I don't have the first release since I stopped collecting Hot Toys due to financial and space constraints (I only have the Hot Toys Mk 2 and Battle Damaged Mk 3. I am trying to complete the S.H. Figuarts Iron Man line though). Based on the reviews, the difference between the First release and the diecast one are more than just cosmetic improvements. The diecast one can actually partsform into the Mk  7 pod mode, which is a gimmick that is a first among Hot Toys I believe. Also, the poseability has improved tremendously. The diecast can do the famous three point stance/landing no problem. The following is a good review showing the comparison, transformation, and the three point landing, though its in Chinese:

Very nice! I prefer the blue over the grey. Wish Bandai would reissue this one. Not paying 50k for it!

Yea, they should definitely reissue him.  It's crazy how much he costs in the aftermarket.  Unfortunately, I think Bandai will do another recolor first before that happens.

I was about to post exactly this. I PO'd two Snow Whites. I prefer the blue though. Can't make myself spend 50k though.

Isn't Threezero's Patlabor skeletal frame based on "Ingram" (as based in the video by Toys TV HK at around the timestamp of 5:15)?

Edit: Its a 33 1/2 min review if you can sit and go through the entire review (might be better than Emgo's review on his collection of both official and 3rd party TFs). :p
