It’s almost here folks! We are now less than three months away from the highly anticipated premiere of Marvel’s Iron Man 3, and we’ve been getting some pretty sweet looks at all the movie will have to offer.

So up next in the extra long promotional campaign, the popular toy manufacture Kotobukiya has offered a first look the latest Iron Man 3 collectible – Iron Man’s new Mark 42 armor.

This collectible comes straight from the movie and stands at about 15 inches tall (1/6th scale).

Check out the full pics below:

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! This summer one of the most popular Marvel superheroes returns to the silver screen. In the first two Iron Man films as well as the Avengers Robert Downey Jr. has played the perfect Tony Stark and his heroic alter ego Iron Man, with incredible special effects bringing his armored forms to life like never before. Following on the massive global success of the superhero team up movie Marvel is bringing the fans even more armored action with Iron Man 3 this May! Joining the previously announced Mark VII in the Iron Man 3 ARTFX Statue lineup is a new armored suit from the upcoming movie, Iron Man Mark 42!

After surviving imprisonment by terrorists, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark created the Mark II armor suit. This was followed up soon after by the iconic Mark III suit used to battle Stane and his Iron Monger suit at the culmination of the first film, and the upgraded Marks IV, V, and VI armor in the sequel. He went even further with the Mark VII in Avengers, using the high-tech armor to take on the army of the Chitauri. Now we get a sneak peek at the ultimate powered armor in Stark’s Iron Man 3 Mark 42. Similar to the Mark VII, the new version is a sleek machine with overlapping plates and a unique segmented look. Iron Man blasts into action, churning up water beneath him with his thrusters. The dynamic pose catches the superhero leaning back as he fires his repulsor ray from his outstretched right hand, clenching the left for a follow up attack. The Mark 42 is resplendent in metallic red and gold with a subtle new pattern unlike any of the armors before it. This version also comes equipped with an amazing LED light-up feature in his eyes and arc reactor; three settings (Off, Continuous On, and triggered by the built-in sound detector) let you choose how and when Iron Man activates for battle!

Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3rd.
