Sideshow Collectibles Giving Away Iron Man Mark 42 Maquette


What exactly is a maquette? Well, Wikipedia says it’s a small scale model, but when it comes to the ones produced by Sideshow Collectibles, it’s sufficient to just say that they’re awesome.

This is relevant because Sideshow is giving away one of its upcoming Iron Man Mark 42 Quarter Scale Maquettes. All you have to do to enter this ridiculously detailed collectible of Tony Stark’s main armor from Iron Man 3 is to head here and sign up to receive the company’s newsletter. New subscribers automatically receive a coupon good for $10 off their first order, so it’s a good deal even if you don’t win.

If you are the lucky winner, you’re going to need to clear some space for this bad boy. For proof, check out the Iron Patriot Quarter Scale Maquette, which stands 22 inches tall and weighs 12 pounds. It’s also got a hand-painted finish, light-up eyes, chest and repulsors and a flip-up mask so you can see the eerily accurate face of Don Cheadle looking back at you. All of that should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Mark 42.

These babies aren’t cheap (they retail for $399.99), so you definitely don’t want to miss out on the chance to win one.
