The Toys Asia have produced the ultimate collectible with the Mark XLIII armor, which is animated thanks to its 46 motors.

Its 567 individual parts leave no room for to fit a human— despite the fact that it clearly looks like it could. Seriously, don't even try.
If the eight month shipping time isn't enough to deter you, then the price tag probably is. At 2.5 million Chinese yuan (around $360,000USD), you would probably be dipping a little too far into your designated collectibles allowance for at least the next few lifetimes.
