In response to a series of bombings for which the Mandarin takes credit, Tony Stark coordinates with Rhodes, offering to assist War Machine, now dubbed the Iron Patriot.
The conversation is interrupted when Stark is reminded of the wormhole in New York, causing Stark to suffer a severe anxiety attack and quickly reenter his armor. Stark publicly threatens the Mandarin and later uses the Mark XLII to save Pepper when a helicopter attack converges on the Stark residence. Stark later uses the Mark XLII to rescue the staff trapped aboard the sabotaged Air Force One.
Stark and Rhodes, both deprived of armor, attempt to stage a rescue of the president before Aldrich Killian televises the former’s execution. Neither Stark or Rhodes are able to gain the upper hand against Killian’s Extremis-augmented thugs, prompting Start to summon all of his armored suits simultaneously, remote-controlled by Jarvis. Distinctly squatting and ogre-like, the Mark XXXVIII Igor is originally intended to lift and transport heavy objects.
The Super Alloy 1/12 scale Igor figure was developed based on computer 3D model from Iron Man 3 movie, ensuring accuracy of proportions. It stands approximately 8.5 inches in height with an exterior made of about 75% die-cast material.
