The next company to announce the Iron Man 3 line of figure is Kotobukiya. Kotobukiya have been producing nice Statues and the Mark XLII (42) that they will be producing is yet another statue to be added to your collection. The figure will be available in July 2013.
Extracted from the Kotobukiya FB page; Iron Man Mark 42 stands 15 inches tall (1/6th scale) hovering over the lifelike water effect. This pre-painted, snap-fit ARTFX Statue is easy to assemble so you can have your Iron Man on display in no time. Arriving this summer along with the release of the film, the Mark 42 is just the first Iron Man 3 ARTFX statue from Kotobukiya; there are more to follow!
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The Dark Knight is back! Kotobukiya is proud to present a new ARTFX Statue based on the upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises. The third part of a trilogy by Christopher Nolan, this summer’s “DKR” pits Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne against both Bane and Catwoman. This was the prototype of the figure displayed during the New York Toy Fair 2012.
Sculpted by MIC, Batman The Dark Knight Rises towers over 15 inches tall (1/6th scale) on a rocky display base that includes a hidden light-up bat symbol! Perfect for both long-time Batman collectors as well as fans of the new movie, this Dark Knight looks great on his own or displayed next to other dynamic Kotobukiya Batman statues.

The Iron Man figure has been the most demanded figure in the market. While everyone is waiting anxiously for the figure to be released by Hot Toys, let us feed your appetite with another nice artwork that will be available very soon (June 2012) from Kotobukiya. Kotobukiya actually unveils this latest ARTFX statue, the new Ironman Mark VII from the movie The Avengers for pre-order way back in March 2012 which we think is a great piece of work. There are already some photos shown online on the actual product and it is a must have for the Iron Man figure collectors.
