Why keep all those awesome Iron Man figures locked up inside their cardboard boxes when you can display your suits in style? The fine folks at Hot Toys have done it again with the release of the Iron Man Hall of Armor silo diorama. This awesome movie-accurate display allows collectors to re-create Tony Stark’s hall of armors in sixth scale.
The Hall of Armor diorama comes packaged within a multi-colored outer box that features a black and white schematic of the hall of armor silo. Unlike the usual sixth scale figures the packaging for this particular item is non-elaborate and rather simplified.
The diorama consist of 4 separate parts (main silo, side panels and plastic screen) and requires some minor assembly to put together. The diorama features several different lighting elements throughout the structure providing varying lighting configurations. The diorama requires AA and AAA batteries to function but they are not included with the set. The Iron Man Hall of Armor diorama features:
• Measurements: 13.5 inches H x 9 inches W x 6.75 inches D
• LED light-up functions
• Suitable for all Hot Toys Sixth Scale Iron Man Collectible Figure Series (Figures Not Included)
• Includes Seven (1) Transparent acrylic plate with holographic style stickers
• Includes One (1) Sets of Stickers, Seven (7) Total, One (1) Each Mark I - VII
• Each Hall of Armor can be combined with additional pieces to create the diorama setting
• AC/DC compatible (Adapter NOT Included)
The sculpted details on the exterior an interior of the silo are incredible and uncannily movie-accurate painted in combination of silver and gray colors giving the piece a very advanced and techie look. The holographic style stickers attach to the acrylic plate similar to the way you attach a screen protector on a smart phone. I used a soapy water spray and a plastic squeegee that I purchased at my local hardware store and it worked great! you simply have to cover the acrylic plate in soapy water and lay the sticker on top of it and squeegee all the bubbles out to the sides until none remain. The holographic screen look awesome when placed in front of a Mark suit as it traces the entire figure making it seem like a holographic schematic of the armor enclosed in the silo.
You don’t have to be a billionaire like Tony Stark to own your very own Hall of Armors but it will sure set you back about $850 to build your own complete set, not to mention finding a spot big enough to display all seven silos side by side. Nonetheless, this Hall of Armor diorama is an awesome way to showcase your extra Iron Man figures regardless of how many you buy and is an absolute must have for Iron Man collectors.
