I know Koto has it's own section but it's for their Star Wars products so I thought I'd put this awesome new piece here. Not sure if you can buy these separately but I imagine you will be able to.

I've been told it may only be 1:10 scale so the price tag could be ok..., I'd prefer 1:6 scale though. lol

Well The Hulk is nicely priced at $69.99 but the Hulkbuster is a bit on the expensive side at $199.99. :( They are available for preorder on the kotous.com website.

They make quality items. I'm going to hold off on the preorder, for now, to see what other Hulkbuster armors are being done by other companies.

They do indeed, I've got over 100 items from Kotobukiya..., mostly Star Wars but Iron Man too, Hulkbuster will make it into my collection I think, The Hulk too. Going to wait for a UK retailer to list these, the Hot Toys Hulkbuster will be the other figure I purchase, that's going to be a beast though at 22" (near on double the size of this one). :)

Decided to preorder the set, £180.00 for the pair wasn't bad I thought. :)

That's a great deal, I've been waiting for it to go up on FP as I only want The Hulkbuster as I have the Koto Fine art Hulk statue. In today's weekly collectible solicits e mail from FP the Hulkbuster is there and listed at £199. Will you get the 2 for £180 without customs?

Collectibles Direct mate, I got a discount but the Hulkbuster figure is only £145.00 on their website on its own & it's free shipping too. :)

Thanks Kev, got my order in this morning. :D
That's great. :) I think you'll be impressed when this one turns up, I saw a video of it at Toy Fair NY & it looked pretty cool..., they're making a 1:6 scale mark 43 statue/figure of Iron Man too..., all sorts of other cool things too, it's a Pixel Dan video (worth a watch, link below).

Thanks for the vid Kev. :) Just gave it a watch and Koto really are flying these days, for me they are the best pound for pound collectibles maker on the market. The Hulkbuster looks even more amazing when you get a live look at it and now I kinda wish I'd bought the Hulk just in case I wanted that diorama display option lol. The Iron Man AoU museum statue is also a beauty and I was glad to hear them say they were making an ARTFX Arkham Knight statue, I just wish we could have gotten a better look at the Artfx+ Red Hood. :D

I think the line to watch now is the new ArtFX+ X-Men figures, if they get the likenesses down on them then I can see a whole new sidetrack happening & a new display area being needed. :) I ponderered on just getting the Hulkbuster figure but the diorama looked too cool to pass up..., think I'll be getting the mark 43 to go with the mark 7 Iron Man piece I've got sat on his own, needs a friend. What's new with your collection?

Yeah that X-Men line looks very nice, I am gonna try and resist though as I have my 2 fav X-Men in statue form already. :) The thing with the diorama is I think you need a big display space to showcase it properly and with already having a Hulk I wanted to make sure the Hulkbuster got maximum attention lol. Is that Mark 43 made of the heavier stuff do you think? I have the IM3 statue Koto did and it was in the PVC mold.

New with my collection since Christmas where I got the Juggernaut bust is my first Hot Toys! :D I got the Tony Stark with work bench version, and yesterday for my birthday I got the Arkham Mr. Freeze statue, the Deathstroke mini bust and the Artfx+ Iron Man gold & black armor version.

Not sure where I'm going to be putting my Hulk/Hulkbuster yet, it will require a decent area though..., your right there. I'm really only wanting Wolverine, Gambit & Rouge in the new X-Men line up, Gambit was always my favourite & I'm looking forward to seeing him turn up in the new X-Men movie (about time too as he's a proper X-Man). I think the mark 43 will probably have the heavier materials this time around, I'm pretty sure they only made the mark 42 lighter because of the top heavy falling over (backwards) issue.

You've got some good stuff then, I got Juggernaut too & love it, always impressed with the bigger busts. :) Didn't get the Avengers Now Iron Man figures but I'm pondering on it, what do you think of the one you've got? Hot Toys are great, I got my 11th last week..., the House Party Protocol Hot Rod Iron Man suit, it's diecast & very cool. Loving the Iron Man figures, awaiting their Hulkbuster figure to go up for preorder, 22" tall I'm told so it'll be expensive.

Preordered both pieces of this set from my local c.b.s. this afternoon. Really got sold on this from Toy Fair.
The initial pictures posted did it for me, well the Hulkbuster ones anyway..., it was great to see the video from Toy Fair though & gage the scale better, looking forward to seeing the pair in hand & forever at odds on my shelf there after. :)

It used to be vinyl but that was too soft & figures posed leaning in any way would bend/lean over time so now it's PVC plastic, stronger & more durable, so they say anyway but I've got over 80 of their products & I agree it's better now than the older materials used.
