Pre-Order Hot Toys Iron Patriot Sixth Scale Figure! (Diecast Series!)

The mighty artisans at Hot Toys have just revealed the Iron Man 3 figure that everybody has been waiting for - the 1/6th scale, star-spangled Iron Patriot, now lovingly rendered for extra realism in heavy, shiny diecast metal! Complete with light up eyes, chest, and palms, take a look at the following patriotic image and just try to tell me that it doesn't make you want to eat a cheeseburger astride a crying bald eagle on the 4th of July...

And the best part is that our pals at Sideshow Collectibles already have him up for pre-order so you can secure yours before they triple on ebay. So if you're already convinced, order him right here:

Now on the odd chance that you don't already know who's inside the suit, I won't spoil it, but the faceplate does come off and there are (blurred) images out there that still clearly reveal who's sweating in there. (Clue: It's not Aunt May).

I'd love to see this guy in person to assess how the metal looks in real life. I imagine that aesthetically it's a big leap forward although I wonder how that affects his articulation. He looks relatively limber in these official pictures. And there's additional moving parts like that freedom-spewing shoulder cannon.

It's definitely one of the nicest looking armours we've seen, and although the metal comes at a premium I'll be very surprised if this isn't a popular one. I am very tempted myself. Let's see how much my wallet is suffering after assembling the Avengers.

And this is my favourite image...

So what do you think? Come on! You're smart and articulate! Stop being such a wallflower! Quickly now! Everyone is listening!
