SDCC17: 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark XXIII “Shades”

Nicknamed “Shades” for its ability to withstand extreme heat temperatures, the Iron Man Mark XXIII by Tony Stark sports a streamline armor design with desert military camouflage making it an unique and special suit of the “House Party Protocol” in Iron Man 3.

Hot Toys has announced the new Toy Fair Exclusive 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark XXIII "Shades" collectible figure. Crafted in reference to Iron Man 3, the 1/6th scale Shades (Mark XXIII) has a very distinctive design featuring metallic color painting with digital camouflage pattern on its streamlined armor structure, LED light-up functions, and a dynamic figure base.

They will also have a Pop-Up Shop at 448 West Market Street in the Marina District.  However, some will not be...for instance, the Loungefly bags will be available at Booth #5346.
