    They look great and are a lot better looking than what I thought watching the actual show. I don't remember how they held their blasters, were they all one handed grips like that? Makes it look like the figure can't hold the weapon.

    edit. I see the first pic where they're cradling the gun, but don't see two handed like aiming poses so far.

    Oh no!! :eek: 

    Might be interested in this one after my Mando Deathtrooper arrives. I'm expecting Die Cast legs like Rouge One's: K2SO and close to around $300 USD.

    I haven't pre-ordered Gideon yet and this might push it even further..

    Edit 2: Having the Death trooper, Gideon and Dark Trooper (Phase 3) is going to look interesting together if someone is going to attempt it. Looks like the Season 2 Full Beskar Mando with Spear is teased as well.

    @Flapjacks - Don't forget the tease of Pascal with the Beskar Spear as well.

    They do look great! I never got why robots need two handed shooting.

    This might be a really stupid question, but do Hot Toys figures stay in good condition in the package for periods of time? Context: I received an email from Sideshow that my Mark 85 is coming in stock soon, but I don’t really have anywhere nice to display it right now, since I moved to my duty station. I can’t send it home because even though there’s space in my room, my parents don’t handle my stuff. But I don’t wanna cancel the order either; I made a vow last year that the 85 would be my lone, definitive Iron Man. Ergo, could I just ship it here and keep it safe in box until I have the means to display it, or would it risk damage? House/room is kept reasonably cool, not too humid. Closet is free from sunlight.
    I only ask because I feel like I’ve seen posts online in 1/6 scale groups about figures wearing out/getting damaged somehow, even when in the box. Which is ridiculous for such high-end items, but I digress. Are those claims true or am I misremembering and making a bigger deal out of this than needed?

    As long as it doesn't have rubber parts or the faux leather, it should be fine. I think the Iron Man stuff will last and won't have issues in storage unless there's a factory defect.

    Like Flapjacks said, it's the stuff with rubber and faux leather that people need to be mindful of. As long as the batteries aren't left installed (they are not pre-installed fyi) Iron Man figures shouldn't have any issues being stored away.

    Speaking of HT Iron Man figs, I am selling my Mark 7, Mark 43 and Mark 50 (all 3 are diecast) if anyone is interested. Also selling Infinity War Iron Spider and GotG 2 Stan Lee. All are listed in my sales thread.

    Shouldn't be any problem at all, especially with an Iron Man. I had a couple figures boxed up for like 2 years recently.

    Dope, thank you all. Then I’ll just ship it here and keep it stored safely, until I can either find a suitable display here or take it home on my next leave period. Wallet will be dented but hopefully it’ll be worth it

    Anyone here has got 1/4 scale stuff?

    I might be getting the 1/4 scale Din with Grogu either Regular/Deluxe version and making a deposit in April/June to my local hobby TF/1/6th store. Payment in CND funds is a chunk of change. :confused:

    I have quite a few HT QS - they're really nice pieces. Can they be posted in here (since they're not actually 12"), or is there / should there be a separate thread for them?

    I think you could @Autoclot. Will there be any other interjections by anyone else even though its close to 15 inches??

    Yeah I think 1/4 is fine here. Not enough to make it's own thread.

    I only have the IM Mark 3 in 1/4 scale. Despite most of them looking amazing, I'm not ready to chance these prices on rubber and faux leather. And I agree with Duke that there isn't enough available in 1/4 scale to warrant it's own thread.

    I've got the Hot Toys 1/4 scale Heath Ledger Joker.
    I don't see any reason why 1/4 scale can't be welcomed here as well.
