WHO'D MAKE A GOOD 1/6TH MARK-1?

the Mark-1 armor seen in Las Vegas [all images via io9.com]:

so okay, if anybody's ever going to make a 1/6th-scaled version of the Mark-One
(from the Iron Movie) - i'd rather it be made by Hot Toys


and i don't even really care (much) for the headsculpt within (Tony Stark) - as long as the armor and moving-bits are weathered as beautifully, and the details insane'o. Hot Toys have recently been pretty much the IT-producers of detailed 1/6th, IMHO [tagged] - consider their recent track-record with mecha-themed products, like Aliens Power Loader, even ED209 (Robocop) and even Ex Machina,


sure Medicom could give it a go, but it may not be as weathered (of coz i could self-weather, but given the regular price-points, why would you wanna work even harder?). Takara may indeed give it a good go (but the price points may yet slap me down LOL) ... SideShowToys will be my next close choice ... and who else is there? existing players? (just imagine for a moment Hasbro is not involved, yeh? as hawt as how Mark-3 looked :p) ... or perhaps even brand new ones? = what do YOU think?

IM-PROMOTIONS: BURGER KING, AUDI, 7-ELEVEN

details about the upcoming promotions for Iron Man via Brandweek [via]:

"There's been strong fanboy buzz on the movie since last summer's Comi-Con, where Downey appeared with director Jon Favreau and castmates Terrence Howard and Gwyneth Paltrow, but the studio intends to take it beyond niche, starting with a splashy Super Bowl ad and extending through broad-based promotions at 6,400 7-Eleven convenience stores and global campaigns with Burger King and Audi"
BKAUDIIRON

"The partnerships fan out across every demo," said LeeAnne Stables, Paramount's svp-worldwide marketing partnerships. "And they reach consumers in ways and places that the studio marketing can't." Some lessons from the studio's successful Transformers deals from last summer will get a re-do here: Favreau will direct BK's TV ads, as filmmaker Michael Bay did for the robot movie/ burger chain tie-in, and the studio will pack a dedicated Audi Web site with original Iron Man content, to an even greater degree than it did for Transformers ally General Motors."

my take = juz gimme teh toys, folks! LOL
