Remember that bit in Iron Man 3 where Tony Stark relaxes in his Iron Man armour on his couch? Well, good news for fans who've been waiting to create that moment on your toy shelf for three years: you finally can. If you're heading to San Diego Comic-Con with a fair chunk of change, that is.
Yes, seriously, Comicave studios is releasing this special version of its recently unveiled Mark 42 Armour 1/12 Scale Figure at Comic-Con this year. There's no real difference from the standalone figure — it's still 6" tall, it comes with all the accessories like alternate hands and repulsor blast FX pieces. It even lights up all over the body! It's certainly an impressive little toy.
But what would it be without a matching couch? Nothing. NOTHING I SAY. So I'm glad that Comicave is making this figure worth a place in any Iron Man fan's collection with the addition of some in-scale furniture to put him on. Look, it even gets its own little box:
It's like an IKEA purchase, but for figurines.
It's so goofy, you can't help but love that an action figure whose accessories include such explosive elements as rockets and hand-blasters and all that nonsense, also now comes with something as innocuous as a couch. It makes you almost want a Malibu Dream Tony Stark Bachelor Pad playset to put it in.
There's no pricing on the Couch-and-Iron-Man bundle, but the figure alone is being sold for $US100 ($136) — so considering this is being made available first for Comic-Con 2016, you can probably expect that couch to bump up the price a little bit.
