As far as switch-outs go, who cares?!? This piece doesn't really need them as far as I'm concerned. Pose is fine too. Pretty similar to the XM MK XLII yet I'd take this over that any day of the week.
The more I look at the pictures the cooler it keeps getting, I like Japanese writing on the armor that's a nice touch...

Funny you say that... the Japanese writing is a huge draw for me as well. Really cool touch.

Any clue as to what it says?

No idea. I just love the look of Japanese writing. Would be cool to find out though.

I think I might get this now

I was thinking this has the exact same pose as XM IM XLII yet it's mirrored, since I have the XM IM XLII coming in I could pose these side by side and it would look pretty sweet...

After some Googling it is the Japanese translation for Iron Man.

Well I guess that makes perfect sense.

Finding myself going back and looking at this piece rather regularly since it went up for pre-order. Really love the look of this armor. Did the math on the pre-order price too and after factoring in the PGM price, double reward points and $75 gift certificate the total comes to $325, which is a hell of a deal for a 1:4 scale statue with light-up feature, comparatively speaking.

keep in mind they charge state taxes and shipping won't be cheap. The reward points and gift certificate are nice if you buy from them. As I don't, I will stick with a local AD.

Luckily I live in OR, no sales tax.

If I picked this up locally they'd charge over $400, no question. So in this case shipping is a necessary evil and GG's is under $20. If I decide to get this I doubt that deal could really be beat. 3 days to decide.
