At last year’s Toy Fair and San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), Hot Toys had a prototype the Whiplash from Marvel’s Iron Man 2 movie and now its finally available for pre-order. The sixth scale figure is a part of the Movie Masterpiece Collection and is also going to be diecast for an authentic metallic armor. Whiplash has a few cool extras including movable panels for foot anchors, a unique base from inside the globe in the film, damaged armor plate, and a new head sculpt of Mickey Rourke. The price tag is $399.99 and slated for release in April 2015. The figure looks amazing, awesome, and I can’t wait to see it in person.
