Iron Man Classic Silver Mini Bust
Featuring a light-up Arc Reactor in the chest plate, this humongous limited edition 1:6 scale Mini-Bust of the Classic Silver Iron Man is hand painted, individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Before the Red and Gold, there was Silver. In 1963, billionaire industrialist and genius weapons designer Tony Stark was critically wounded by a booby trap and captured by the Viet Cong during a trip to Vietnam where he was examining the effects of his technologies on the American war effort. He was saved by a fellow captive, Nobel Prize-winning scientist Ho Yinsen, who constructed a magnetic chest plate that kept dangerous shrapnel from piercing Tony's heart. Faced with the choice of either constructing weapons for the Viet Cong or execution, Stark and Yinsen secretly concocted a plan to escape. Together, they took the munitions they were given and forged a suit of weaponized armor, inadvertently giving birth to the legacy of Iron Man! Although technology has evolved over time and Stark has created a wide variety of Iron Man suits, this highly detailed, hand crafted polystone mini bust celebrates the original and is a must-have for any serious Iron Man fan. This bust measures about 7 1/4-inches tall. Limited edition of 520 pieces.
