Iron Man 2 - Iron Man Mark I

I've overlooked this figure plenty of times before  in past toy reviews but have a newfound respect for it now that I have it in hand.


This truly is a little work of art!


The attention to detail on this movie version Mark 1 Iron Man armor is  impressive.All the visible   nuts ,bolts and working mechanisms on the suit  have been realistically  sculpted  into the armor.The weathering is  also executed perfectly .I also like the fact   that you can see parts of Stark's shirt and pants underneath his armored arm/leg plates. A removable helmet would have been an amazing touch.
 The downfall on some of these more heavily armored Iron Man figures is their limited movement .You can still get them into a decent pose or two but they will be limited.In the film ,this particular version of Iron Man wasn't particularly  limber so I guess even with the limited mobility ,  you're getting movie accuracy.Easily a top 20 figure in my collection.

  5. I think so too Fuji.The guns i don't have much of a problem with,although sometimes Hasbro has a tendency of overdoing it with them.
