Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Armor Details Analysis & Prediction for coming Iron Man Release

Hi guys, as you all know I am a fan of HT Iron Man Series, I was thinking is that possible for HT to make all 42 different iron man armors in future, my answer now is YES, after I spent couple of hours to analyze the similarities of each armor, I fount that actually HT only need to make 14 different armors and by reusing the parts of these 14 armors and apply new paint-job, they can actually produce all 42 to armors.

These 14 armors are (actually should be 13 armors because Mark 7 design is from Avengers)
  1. Iron Patriot or War Machine 2.0 (Already made by HT)
  2. Mark 7 or Mark 21 Midas (Already made by HT)
  3. Mark 17 Heart Breaker (Already made by HT)
  4. Mark 33 Silver Centurion (Already made by HT)
  5. Mark 35 Red Snapper (Already made by HT)
  6. Mark 38 Igor (Already made by HT)
  7. Mark 39 Star Boost (Already made by HT)
  8. Mark 41 Bones (Already made by HT)
  9. Mark 42 (Already made by HT)
  10. Mark 15 Sneaker
  11. Mark 16 Night Club
  12. Mark 25 (Prototype shown by HT in 2014 HK Toy Fair)
  13. Mark 27 Hammer Head
  14. Mark 40 Shotgun (Bust has been made by HT, higher chance will be the next HT Iron Man)
So which means HT left only 4 armors to develop in order to have all parts available to form entire iron man 3 army. They are

Mark 15 Sneaker 

Mark 16 Night Club 

Mark 27 Hammer Head 

Mark 40 Shotgun

Based on current developed Iron Man armors, I can summarize for you to have better idea what HT is planning on next release.

There are 10 armors can be formed without developed new parts by using existing released Iron Man armors. HT just need to apply new paintjob and combine other parts from different armors, they can easily release another Iron Man armor again.
Out of 10 these armors, 2 have been released (Midas & Python) and 2 are announced in HK Toy Fair (Blue Steel & Peacemaker), check out the complete list for the rest are here.

MARK 9/ MARK IX
Head: Mark 33 Silver Centurion

Arm: Mark 7
Forearm: Mark 7
Stomach: Mark 7

Thigh: Mark 17 Heart Breaker
Leg: Mark 17 Heart Breaker

MARK 11/ MARK XI
Head: Mark 17 Heart Breaker 
Shoulder: Mark 7
Chest: Mark 7

And now HT is developing Mark 25 Striker. Once this striker has been released. They can reuse its parts to form the below 3 armors.


MARK 8/ MARK VIIII
Head: Mark 7
Shoulder: Mark 7
Chest: Mark 7
Arm: Mark 7
Forearm: Mark 7
Stomach: Mark 33 Silver Centurion
Hip: Mark 33 Silver Centurion
Thigh: Mark 25 Striker
Leg: Mark 33 Silver Centurion

MARK 26/ MARK XXVI GAMMA
(Mark 25 Striker Repaint)

MARK 31/ MARK XXXI PISTON
Head: Mark 33 Silver Centurion
Shoulder: Mark 7
Chest: Mark 7
Arm: Mark 7
Forearm: Mark 7
Stomach: Mark 33 Silver Centurion
Hip: Mark 33 Silver Centurion
Thigh: Mark 25 Striker
Leg: Mark 33 Silver Centurion

I believe the next project for Iron Man release will be the Mark 40 Shot Gun. Once this armor is developed. They can release another 6 armors using existing parts from different armors.
FYI, HT has already done the bust for it.


My conclusion/summary
There are 42 armors in iron man movies plus 3 armors from war machine (1.0, 2.0 & Patriot)
and They actually design 7 different armors (Mark 1 to 7) + war machine/patriot + another 12 new unique armors in Iron Man 3. Therefore, Marvel has created total 20 unique designs, and then now Marvel & HT can sell 42 times to his fans.

So good luck to all HT die hard/hard core fans. This is a never ending story because the Avengers 2 and Iron Man 4 movie is coming soon. There will be new armors to be added in your collection. Happy collecting! Howard Chan will definitely earn big $ from Iron Man series.
