Hot Toys exclusives can be maddening for collectors. Often available only internationally, collectors must rely on eBay to get the exclusive figures or pieces. One such item was the Iron Man MIDAS Armor, with it’s metallic golden sheen. An international convention exclusive, the MIDAS armor sold on eBay for nearly $1,000 before settling down to a price of about $600. As no indication of US availability was given, fans started to lose hope.
But now on Cyber Monday Sideshow Collectibles has FINALLY released the Hot Toys Iron Man MIDAS armor, and it’s up for order now!
This armor WILL sell out fast. It has so many factors leading me to believe this: 1) It’s Iron Man. While Spider-Man and Captain America may sit in Stock at Sideshow for a while, Iron Man always pre-sells out and goes for higher secondary prices. 2) It’s an exclusive piece. The Iron Man Battle Damaged MK VII is what I would equate this to and it sold out in a day–I expect MIDAS may even go faster due to the pent up demand.
