Toys: We’re still wrapping our heads around the whole ‘giant-headed figure’ fad, but we can look past the distorted proportions of this Iron Man Mark II because it’s the first Stark figure we’ve found that actually flies. Or floats, at least, thanks to an electromagnetic powered base that doubles as a lovely display stand.
The Mark II also has glowing eyes and an illuminated arc reactor, and its mirror finish reflects glowing accents on the base making it seem even more alive. From the right angle you’d swear Iron Man was flying over a city at night, but in reality it’s just a few millimeters above your desk. Available for pre-order for $US180 it’s a pricey collectible, but it’s still far cheaper than what Tony Stark spent on his suit. [Hobby Link Japan via Albotas]
