I’m back with another toy review for the day. This time we are taking a look at Iron Man the hero who started it all in terms of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This one is also made by the fine folks at Diamond Select Toys which you can tell right away by the detail in it. Like the others from this line its sturdy, fun and is like a standard Action Figure on steroids
Figure features the "Extremis" armor from the comic series
Stands 7" tall
Features 14 articulation points
Stands atop a display base of fire, depicting Iron Man taking off into flight
The action figure debut of Iron Man's Extremis armor design!
Over 14 points of articulation
If you’re a guy who keeps these in the box, its cool to display. Blister packed with a clear front so you can proudly see the figure. Its even in the box at an angle with the fire part of the base under it so it looks like its flying in the box. Its got the name on the left side with the Iron Man head on the bottom, not blocking any of the figure, and the backing is a design of Iron Man splash pages. Its got the tab on the front in case you want to hang it without damage. It’s a really neat display figure.
Now if your kid, or you (I don’t judge) want to play with it it’s a slick figure. Its probably the brightest of all the Diamond Select figures I have seen. Bold bright red with the gold armor its like looking at a miniature version of the statue. Every single line it etched into it. Perfectly molded it’s incredibly high quality. I love how the eyes, chest reactor, and hand reactors are such a fine silver and blue, like its being charged and ready to blast the bad guys. Front and back its designed exactly like it’s comic book counterpart.
You can see from the pic this one stands on a base which is really cool. It’s a huge bellow of smoke and fire raising up into the sky. When you place the figures boots into the pegs of the base it displays it like a flying statue. You won’t, or at least shouldn’t have to worry about your kids picking it up as the base makes for such a cool display. Heck even if you don’t play with it and want to open and display it. It looks fantastic anywhere you put it.
The head turns, as do all the hands, feet waist, arms, and legs move. Elbow and knee joints bend making it a fully posable and playable His arms do not fully extend out to the sides but that’s about the only thing that doesn’t move smoothly. My son has had him fighting Thanos for days on end now along with the other figures from this line. These are the most well deigned well made figures out there. These can really hold up to the punishment kids can dish out.
If you want to collect and display either in or out of the box this is a great figure. If you want to open it and play with it along side your other toys, its amazing as well. Pick this one up today.
