MAFEX No. 020 Hulkbuster

Medicom Toys’ MAFEX line is going head to head with Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line with their very own 1/12 scale Mark 44 (AKA Hulkbuster) based on its appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  MAFEX looks like it’s going to try and one up S.H. Figuarts in almost every aspect starting with its height of approximately 270mm putting it slightly taller than Bandai’s version at 250mm. It’s also got an awesome feature where it looks like the head and top armor can be moved to reveal Iron Man himself inside.  If that’s not enough, it’s also priced very competitively at 27,500JPY compared to Bandai’s 34,560JPY list price. Articulation looks to be about the same for both although it’s not known if MAFEX’s will have light up features or die-cast which the S.H. Figuarts’ version has.  MAFEX Hulkbuster will be released in September 2016.
