Iron Man is a modern-day knight in shining armor. On the outside, an invincible hero able to effortlessly lift steel girders and pound the living daylights out of the toughest foes, but beneath the mask is the all too human Tony Stark. Billionaire. Industrialist. Inventor. And once a man pushed to the brink of death when a piece of shrapnel struck him in the chest while field-testing a battle suit. In order to survive, he modified the chest plate to sustain his wounded heart and adopted the persona of Iron Man, Tony Stark's personal bodyguard. As Tony Stark, he masquerades as an entrepreneur and playboy, far removed from a life of high adventure, and as Iron Man, he wields all the wonders of technology powered by the true hero within; a symbol for the modern age, both man and machine.
Iron Man launches Sideshow Collectibles' line of 'Comiquettes,' sculptural studies of comic-based characters. The 1:4 scale Iron Man comiquette is based on the sensational cover art from The Invincible Iron Man #76, painted by fan favorite artist Adi Granov. Here, Iron Man's modernized design and dynamic pose have been translated from graphic art to sculptural artwork, in the same way that traditional maquettes sculpted during pre-production work for films transform conceptual sketches into 3D reality. This intricate polystone statue features every minute detail, right down to every nut, bolt and rivet. Adorned in his trademark red and gold armor and finished with a dazzlingly realistic looking metallic paint, old Shellhead pounds a mighty gauntlet into the earth and stands ready to deflect bullets and fire off a repulsor beam at oncoming attackers. The Sideshow Exclusive version of the Iron Man comiquette includes a unique Tony Stark portrait, which is interchangeable with the Iron Man head. You can choose which way to display Iron Man!
