Take Your Home from Stark to Tony with an Iron Man 3 Mark 42 Life-Size Statue
by Dan Casey on May 22, 2013
So, imagine you’ve just moved into a new home with a lovely foyer and everything looks perfect. Well, almost perfect. There’s that spot by the staircase that just seems, well, empty. You even hired a decorator and still that spot cries out to you, begging to be filled by something worthy of its feng shui-ness. What’s a discerning geek to do? If you answered, “Put a nearly 6′ tall replica Iron Man 3 Mark 42 statue there,” then today is your lucky day, because now Section 9 Entertainment is making the massive 71″ statues available to the public.
If it looks familiar, then you’re not crazy; Robert Downey Jr. posed with the statue at Iron Man 3 live events like this one in Seoul. The high-end collectible goods company utilized original Visual FX 3D data to create a screen-accurate fiberglass replica that is so true-to-life that even the eyes, hands, and chest light up. The limited edition collector’s item will run you a cool $4,497, but the first 25 customers to purchase receive an additional $500 off and free shipping (good lord, can you imagine the freight costs on this thing?). With the Xbox One approaching JARVIS levels of voice control, you may as well go all in and get the Iron Man suit to complete your transformation into a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist in style.
