Since Tony Stark decided to do away with all of his Iron Man armor in Iron Man 3, the superhero needs a new suit, and he’ll have one for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hot Toys will have a line of new figures for the upcoming film, and they’re kicking it off with the Mark XLIII armor, which features a new paintjob that tries to find a fresh way to blend the gold, silver, and hot-rod red from the previous armors. I wasn’t a big fan of the XLII armor from Iron Man 3, and this one is only a little better. I guess I’m old fashioned in thinking the Mark III from Iron Man was the best in terms of design, and the colors here just don’t seem to go together all that well. At least they’re sticking with the circular arc reactor rather than returning to the triangle from the Mark VI armor from Iron Man 2.
Hit the jump to check out the new Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man suit. The figure will be available later this year, and the film opens May 1, 2015.
Here are the details on the figure from Hot Toys’ Facebook page:

To get fans ready for this super exciting film, Hot Toys is thrilled to jump start the Avengers: Age of Ultron collectible series by presenting the 1/6th scale Mark XLIII Collectible Figure! It is also the newest addition to our MMS Diecast Series which the collectible figures are made of diecast material, and realistically designed to look even more like the armor as it appears in the blockbuster.
The movie-accurate Mark XLIII Collectible Figure is highly detailed and specially crafted based on the image of Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Mark XLIII in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted Tony Stark helmeted head sculpt, metallic red, gold and silver armor with weathered effects, LED light-up functions, and a specially designed diorama base with a damaged Ultron Mark I. A special edition will be available for selected markets which includes a LED lighted battle damaged helmet as bonus accessory.
