Hot Toys and Sideshow’s Iron Man 2 12-inch Figure: WHIPLASH

This summer’s hugely successful IRON MAN 2 introduced several new characters and actors, but perhaps the coolest (and most gleefully over-the-top) newcomer was Mickey Rourke as WHIPLASH. And, of course, where there is an awesome character, there must be an awesome figure and this new one from Hot Toys and Sideshow more than fits the bill…

As per usual, the combination of the companies behind the figure have brought it to life in the coolest possible way. Standing 12 inches tall, the figure has a level of detail you’ve gotta see to believe and comes with enough accessories to all but guarantee that you’ll enjoy a pretty unique experience when it comes to both playing and posing. Add that to the fact that the thing even lights up and you’ve got yet another amazing item that should make fans and collectors drool. But if you want even more proof, look no further than the impressive feature list given by Sideshow…
