restoration - Hot Toys Mark III Battle Damaged - Part iii (final)

Click on picture below to start viewing
from Part i of the Mark III restoration.

Listening to fellow restorers online, many go on to the journey of stripping down the original paintwork and adding gloss coating. We personally find that the color is still that bit off the main color scheme of the Hot Toys Iron Man Mark III.

Many success stories and advices has lead me to trying out the Tamiya acrylic paint Clear Red X-27 and no further glossy paint to be added. I found that it has restored the MK III to *95% original color of what Hot Toys originally presents to us.

*by saying 95%, I'm just judging with my naked eyes. No special equipment has been used. Just to disclaim before I get flame.

ZY Toys - Iron Man OBADIAH STANE in Black Business Suit

Since we have the the Hot Toys Iron Man IRON MONGER MMS164, the next plan is to customize using the MMS164 Obadiah Stane head sculpt with 1/6th scale TTM custom body.

The main apparel came from the 1/6th scale shopping mall call eBay, since ZY Toys is widely carried and sold by different blogshops as well, we decided to go for eBay as a reliable source.

Preorder - Iron Man 3 Tony Stark 1/6th scale Limited Edition Collectible Figurine MMS191

When we first look at the Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Tony Stark 1/6 scale, the head sculpt doesn't look very much like Robert Downey Jr.. After many looks and viewing on Hot Toys homepage preview, hour after hour, day after day, the headsculpt actually does look accurate. The only problem we have is the forehead of the Tony Stark headsculpt. It looks as if Tony Stark is a retired wrestling veteran who has been powdrivered in every match during his days as a wrestler.

At a whooping price of S$300.00, we preordered from Vincent Collection, located in China Square Central. Release date, estimated Q2 - 2013.
