Whether you like it or not, Iron Man is one of the all-time most popular super heroes. And while some of that can be credited to the film performances of Robert Downy Jr, an undeniable part of that popularity is due to the robotic armor that gives Tony Stark his power. Now a mechanized scale replica of that armor has been built by The Toys Asia. And it’s up for sale.
Before you get too excited, no this isn’t a functional wearable version of the famous suit. It is, however, an extremely well-executed and incredibly detailed collectible. With over 500 moving parts that are powered by 46 onboard motors, this life-sized super suit opens up much in the same way that its on-screen counterpart does in order to receive its pilot. The transformation, which occurs at the push of a remote control button, takes just 28 seconds. And the inside is at least as detailed as the outside, with mimicked circuitry and all. Even though this souvenir is admittedly impressive, you’d still have to be the ultimate Marvel fan to drop the $360,000 it costs to get one. [Purchase]
