Malaysian Superfan Spent RM77,000 On A Life-Sized Iron Man Statue And The Photos Look Epic

His reality is my dream, you guys.

Consider us in awe and super jelly at the same time!

A Marvel superfan in Kuala Lumpur recently made jaws drop in wonder with photos showing the unboxing of a life-size Iron Man statue he'd added to his collection.

The statue, a two-metre tall replica of the Mark 43 suit from Avengers: Age of Ultron, was transported in three separate parts including its base platform

Royal Selangor, the manufacturer of the statue, also deployed four personnel to assemble the Mark 43 at the collector's home studio. It's all coming together nicely...

... And ta-da! A full-fledged Iron Man suit, complete with lit-up eyes, arc reactor, and repulsor. :O

His reality is my dream, you guys.

In case you're wondering how much the statue costs, it currently stands at a whoppin' RM77,000 on Royal Selangor's website

Commissioned by Taiwanese collectibles brand Beast Kingdom in association with Marvel, Royal Selangor released the life-size replica last year in honour of the first Iron Man movie's 10th anniversary

The statue itself was unveiled in last year's San Diego Comic-Con. 

To call the statue a limited edition collectible would be understating it, as there are only 30 units available all around the world. In fact, it is believed that the Malaysian collector bought the last and 30th unit based on the base's numbering.

Complementing the massive centrepiece, the guy also owns an impressive collection of Marvel memorabilia that includes film-accurate Infinity gauntlets, headpieces, and limited edition figurines
