Event: Iron Man 3 Hot Toys "Suit Up At Hysan Place"

Some say I am a fan of Iron Man, I'm not. I'm just a fan of Robert Downey Jr.. Then again, Iron Man is probably the only super hero movie I like. Superman, Spiderman, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Batman, all failed to attract me, but the constantly changing and upgrading of suits, suits me! At the end of the day, I am a person who likes to upgrade myself as well as the software and hardware I own.

Those who likes Iron Man can now go to Hysan Place at Causeway Bay to see both toy-size and 1:1 Iron Man suits till May 12.

Talking about Iron Man suits, when I first saw the costume done by Adam Savage of Mythbusters, I thought it was an incredible job done.


But when I saw this one below, I could immediately tell the difference.
Mk I

But the one Adam made was a costume and he could actually wear it, but this one is for display, so they are not exactly the same.

Mk 2

Mk 2, hm... did it even show up in the movie? Oh yes, it did, but just a small part, when he was flying around in his own house.



Mk 3

And the trailer reminds me that Mk 2 is essentially the same as Mk 3 without the paint.

Mk 4

Mk 5

Mk 4, 5 and 6 appeared in the Iron Man 2. That I never realised.


Mk 7

And of course, Mk 7 was in The Avengers.



All exhibits are hand-made collectible figurines done by local Hong Kong figure-loving company Hot Toys. Despite the company name, these are really more than toys.

That's because, all these exhibits have movable parts and the suits are made from hundreds of separate pieces assembled together, so while we are taking photos, we can also pay special attentions to the details.

The joints are flexible.

And Tony Stark definitely looks very Robert Downey Jr.-like.

There are also some concept figures on higher floor, so don't miss them because we are too distracted by the large ones on the ground floor.

There isn't much to learn about English here, but it is definitely a great event to warm your cameras up. I will return with my Canon 7D next time, after I have recovered from my flu.
