Inspired by the original promotional one sheet for the film, the armored avenger stands tall at 1/6 scale. Stan Winston Studios fabricated the suit for the film based on designs by comic artist Adi Granov, and every detail of Iron Man’s Mark III armor has been faithfully replicated by the craftsmen at Kotobukiya. Kotobukiya has been working from reference provided by Marvel Studios, the level of mechanical detail is matched only by the personality conveyed by Iron Man’s heroic stance.
