Looks like Bugis Junction is THE place to be now in Singapore, if you are a Iron Man-fan, and especially if you like the Iron Man TOYS! Now too long ago we had Play Imaginative debuting their 1/4th-scaled and 1/12th scaled "Super Alloy" line-up at the "Become Iron Man" promo exhibit, while recently launched just a stones' throw away within the covered walkways of the inddor/outdoor concept mall, local retailer Action City has set-up a display showcasing Iron Man collectibles from Hong Kong's Hot Toys!
Check out select images posted here, and as well uploaded unto my Facebook album. Onwards, and hold in your drool, folks!
The Hall of Armor diorama (above) greeting folks at the head of the display arena, gave folks a glimpse of "What If I Owned ALL Of Them?". A display long time coming too! I snapped this during the day time, but I reckon when they switch on the Hall of Armor lights at night, it would be impressive, IMHO. C'mon! Who doesn't want to own this entire Line-up and display? LOL
(Iron Man: Battle Damaged Mark VII / The Avengers)
(Whiplash Mark 2)
(Display of previously released collectibles)
Earlier released and announced 1/6th-scaled action figures and 1/4-scaled busts were on full display, along with the spectacular showcasing of newly announced awesomeness, with pre-orders available for Red Snapper and War Machine Mark II, and the debut of Hot Toys' Whiplash (Mark 2) armor had me gagging!
If you remember the near-ending battle scene in "Iron Man 2", when Iron Man and War Machine fought back-to-back against Whiplash's drones, and Whiplash appeared extremely briefly in this armor - based on the Mark 1 armor he acquired earlier in the film? Do pardon my abject lack of vocabulary, but "AWESOME" is a word best decried for this piece, methinks.
(1/4 Busts looked so much better in person, actually!)
Another highlight of the exhibits, was not doubt the ARMORS ASSEMBLE display, whereby parts of the Iron Man armor were laid spread out for all to see, featuring over 300 parts! Impressive showcase indeed! Imagine if this was given out as a poster print tho … oh well, all I have are photographs (and perhaps a video recording) of this now:
At the far end of the space was a life-size Power Pose Mark XLII, with folks having a chance to snap a picture with. Do forgive me for the shot of the back, as most times I could't get a shot in otherwise LOL
“Action City’s Iron Man 3 Hot Toys Collectible Figurines Exhibit” is currently now at Level 1 Hylam Street Bugis Junction in Singapore, and exhibits until May 5th. Folks can also pre-order two special edition Collectible Figurines (Red Snapper & War Machine 2) on site.
