    Yeh it is really nice. They even went as far as added some dirt to the tyres. I'm not sure if it's paint or just pigment powder though. Absolutely top notch work.

    I imagine the prices would be reflecting the quality work for sure.

    $500 for the figure and the bike, which is very well priced. 1/6 scale so the figure stands 30cm tall. Bike is about 65cm long.

    Edit: I just noticed the retail price currently is 50% higher than when I ordered lol. But sold out everywhere already.

    Yeah that's actually very very reasonable, I'm surprised. No wonder it's sold out.

    Going to need some big shelves/case to store that one on :cool:

    Or one giant cabinet haha. I'll have to re-arrange number of them once they are all released. The smaller version will return to the box. I'll probably retire a few of them too. No real reason for double ups.

    So is this how you manage it by retiring older gear to boxes and then putting new ones in existing cabinets? Or do you have a large house and just fill up more cabinets in rooms? And if you retire old gear what do you do with them? Store them somewhere or sell? Just curious because I would love a large collection of things such as toy cars etc but just have no where to store them all.

    Bit of both. I rarely retire them. Rather I upgrade cabinets instead. Only reason I'm retiring a couple here is because they're the same character. I'm only keeping the best one. I'll keep them if they're different costumes. But a few of them are in the same costumes just different makers. I don't really sell them. If anything I will just put them back in their box and store them along with the empty boxes in the store room. That's a constant struggle with a continous supply of boxes lol. My house is not big. But living by myself I have some freedom to do whatever the hell I want. I do have plan to upgrade some cabinets later in the year and hopefully that'll give me some more space.

    RyoSaeba Where do you source your helmets from? I'm on the hunt for a good display quality Iron man for the cabinet.. hating the current Marvel version you can buy everywhere, just looks like cheap plastic.

    Which IM? I have MK 3, MK 5, MK 46, MK 50, MK 85 ( coming). MK 5 currently is the most impressive one but it doesn't have the Red/Gold theme. It's also the most expensive. It does have limited voice recognition, lighting and sound effects.

    There is a MK 85 one is not out yet but it's similar with a 2 stage opening visor. I don't have a video for that however. The MK 5 is ~ $400. I get all my stuff currently off a guy I know from Facebook who runs a group and he just does drop shipping from China/HK.

    Not sure, wanted to see what was around.. don't think I'm going to go the Mk5, as much as its an impressive helmet, the MK5 was always my least favorite Ironman. Figured I'd get one at least - currently planning for another cupboard that'll hold 4. Got a master chief helmet on the way, planning on an RA Prop Masters Stormtrooper helmet, and just need to source a good looking Boba Fett and an Ironman one.

    Hasbro Boba Fett is actually pretty decent. I mean you can probably pay lots more for maybe something that's like 10% better, but that's personal choice. I know people who would get those. Ironman wise there are quite a few. MK 2, MK 3, MK 5, MK 43, MK 46, MK 50 (damaged), MK 85. In terms of iconic, MK 3, 50 (damaged) and the 85 is probably going to be the most iconic ones. I do have 1 more MK 50 on the way that open up in stages like the MK 5 above. But no clue when that's coming. There are a whole heap of them on AliExpress too. Can't really say how good the quality are on those however. If there's one you like, my friend might be able to track it down cheap. I can always check with him.
    The ones I got here are:
    MK 3 (Hasbro), MK 43 (ROAN), MK 46 (no brand)

    Lol I camp facebook marketplace for them. Occasionally see some cheap ones. The Boba Fett one is very decent. A simple paint job like a black wash or something will make it pretty amazing.

    This Modular MK 3 arrived yesterday. It's an unlicensed product. Completely 3D printed as I can see the resin print lines and some of the printing support are still inside lol. But the maker put some thoughts into it. The print are pretty crisp. Comes with USB chargable lithium battery. So you can plug it in and then charge it and unplug it and the light will still work. However I removed the battery and done some light mod. Added white LED to chest because I didn't like the RGB one. Put it in the MK 4 gantry that I've had for awhile and it looks pretty damn good. :D

    Wow that is absolutely stunning. Amazingly lifelike and actually looks incredibly close to Robert Downey Jr :thumbup:

    MT Toys Lady of Space and Time in 1/6 scale. Aka Ciri from Witcher 3. :D The likeness is pretty great. Accesories are ok. Nothing special. Figure is a bit stiff due to the clothing.
