Windlass Studios Iron Man Tony Stark's Arc Reactor Heart 1/1 Prop Replica Used

Sold out

A chance to acquire a very hard to find prop replica of the Arc Reactor from the original Iron Man movie. Note this is an old item and has been opened and displayed. This was made back in 2008 by Windlass Studios. They had access to the original prop and tried to make a faithful reproduction of it. It is widely regarded as being the best, officially-licenced Arc Reactor that has been made to date.

The arc unit is approximately 4.5 by 4.5 inches and is made from machine aluminium, stainless steel and custom molded plastics. It is also removable from the stand. There's a button at the back which lights up the LEDS and lasts around 8 - 10 hours from a set of 4 AA batteries.

The plexiglass display case creates a smart environment which protects the prop replica from dust. 

The prop replica was made in limited numbers. The number made has never been clear, however very few ever seem to appear on Ebay. The prop replica is not signed with a numbered edition, but the box does say limited edition.

Condition

Overall the prop replica is in very good condition considering it's over 10 years old. There are some scratches on the side at the back where the stand connects to the arc reactor. This has been caused by how the reactor connects to the stand. You have to slide it into the grips and it's easy to catch it on the metal. You can't see the scratches when viewed from the front.

The wooden base screw holes need filling a little to ensure the stand doesn't wobble. This is easy to do with a match or with paper, but best to do by the buyer. 

There are some marks here and there, but overall it's a tidy example of this prop replica.

Box, packaging and the leaflet are all present.

Terms Of Pre-Order

Pre-orders require us to commit to an order with a specific manufacturer which we are then liable for. If you place a pre-order, the minimum 10% deposit of total guide price required to place a pre-order is non-refundable, should you choose to cancel. The only exception to this is if the price quoted on your order is going to change by more than 10% when the item arrives.

ETA's can vary and are not guaranteed arrival date. We list the date given by manufacturer, but delays can and do happen. We cannot cancel your pre-order, even if delays are substantial, so please take this into account when ordering. We regularly update the product listing with the latest ETA. Keep an eye on the listings after you order to see when your product is due to arrive.

Orders must be settled within 30 days of the product coming into stock. Failure to settle within this period may mean you lose your deposit and pre-ordered item.

Prices quoted can be subject to change as items are only billed by manufacturers when they ship to us. We do everything we can to give you an accurate buy price, but pre-orders that are far away can vary in price if exchange rate varies from now until then. 

Postage fees can also vary depending on the size of the product, type of shipping and number of boxes required. We suggest you pre-order each item individually as that way each pre-order's postage is paid separately and can ship as it comes into stock.

Why Pre-Order?

Many items are produced in limited quantities. Pre-Ordering looks to ensure that you get one of the limited numbers produced. 

What happens when I Pre-Order?

Upon receiving your Pre-Order, we will place an order with the appropriate distributor for your item. The distributor in turn places the order with the manufacturer who then ensure that the item is shipped to the distributor when it's ready. This means we are liable for the order from that point which is why we charge you a deposit to ensure you're serious on purchasing the item.

Why are some pre-order ship dates so far away?

A number of manufacturers produce items in batches according to demand. The manufacturing process takes considerable time as the items are often hand painted. 

What if I change my mind and want to cancel?

Should you wish to cancel your Pre-Order you can do so, but you will lose either the deposit you paid, or if you paid in full or part-payments, 10% of the expected guide price of the item. The reason for this is we will have placed an order for your item and we are liable for it. 

Is the price you list the final price I will pay?

Most of the time, the guide price will be correct. But as we buy most pre-orders in from abroad, the price can vary due to exchange rate variance. Sometimes that can work in your favour and sometimes against. When the item is ready to ship from the distributor, we will inform you of any price changes. If prices have risen by over 10%, you have the right to cancel order if you so wish and we will return your deposit.

Are Pre-Orders guaranteed to arrive?

Most of the time they are pretty reliable. However, sometimes the manufacturer can run into production or licensing problems and occasionally items are cancelled either temporarily or permanently. Of course if this happens we will refund your deposit.

What happens when my Pre-Order comes into stock?
When your item comes into stock you have 30 days to pay the remaining amount due (Guide Price less your deposit) or risk losing your Pre-Order and deposit.

Can I pay off my pre-order in staged payments rather than one big sum?

We can send you stage payments if you wish to pay in advance of your product shipping. Simply email us to let us know your preferred payment stages. We do ask that the balance is settled at maximum 30 days after the product is in stock.
