“I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you.” – Tony Stark
At last count, 1/6 scale toy company Hot Toys have released over 100+ variants of Marvel’s Iron Man (Probably exaggerated but enough Iron Man already!) and now, fans can add their very own 12″
Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts to their collection.
From the Hot Toys press release:
“In the Iron Man movie series, Pepper Potts has been a very important person in Tony Stark’s heart. As the love interest of Tony Stark, and assisting Tony in the defeat of Obadiah Stane and Aldrich Killian, Pepper has been there with the genius billionaire at the most crucial moments in the film series. Fans have been longing for a collectible figure of her and today Hot Toys is delighted to officially reveal the 1/6th scale Pepper Potts Collectible Figure from Iron Man 3!
The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts in the film featuring a newly developed head sculpt with long straight light reddish-blonde real fabric hair, finely tailored costume, an interchangeable Iron Man Mark IX right arm with LED light-up function, and figure stand!
Pepper Potts will be a great addition to your Iron Man and Tony Stark collection!”
An alternate version on this release includes a Pepper Potts and The Mark IX Iron Man which includes a Pepper Potts in Mark XLII helmet head sculpt which can be fitted to the suited body. This solo release however includes the excellent addition of the Mark IX arm she sported in the closing moments of Iron Man 3 – totally my favorite part in the film btw!

So that’s what was in the box!
Ever since Pepper’s scene stealing moment in Iron Man 3 where she finds herself wearing part of the Iron Man armor and blasting evil Guy Pierce away, I’ve been hanging for a Pepper Potts/Rescue figure. Hasbro teased us of a 6″ release back when IM3 was released but then balked on the figure and there’s been a slew of 1/6 scale knock-offs (they’re really really bad) and this release from Hot Toys finally quenches that thirst – even if these promo images have her stealing Homeland’s Carrie Mathison’s look…..
With numerous Iron Man/Captain America/Thor releases, Hot Toys are starting to make their mark with the female characters with 4 total Black Widow releases, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora and more recently Avengers new-comer Scarlet Witch and Marvel’s Agent Maria Hill which was revealed at the 2015 Toy Fair and is currently available for pre-order.
No word yet on Pepper’s release but keep an eye out at http://www.sideshowtoy.com for the pre-orders like I will be doing! This one’s a keeper for me!
