Frankly, my anticipation for this figure was quelled by the stellar offering that was Hot Toys The Dark Knight line. It's finally arrived after a few delays and here's a look.
Here's pix of it's package.
The figure comes with Tony Stark's head, a figure stand, relaxed hands and open hands.
The paint application is not perfect on my piece, just passable in fact. This was probably a very challenging task for the assembly line to pull off, coupled with the fact that this batch was rushed out for the Lunar New Year. Hopefully subsequent batches get better and in cases like this, it doesn't pay to be an early adopter. The colour scheme however is quite close to what I remember in the movie.
Hot Toys' skills at pulling off armoured figures are top notch, as this sculpt shows.
I like the details on the collarbone area, rivets and the chest repulsor transmitter.
The Tony Stark sculpt is very close to Robert Downey Jr's likeness.
The play value of this quite high with opening flaps on his back and calves, forearm missiles and light up eyes, chest repulsor transmitter and repulsors.
The switches for lighting up the hands and repulsors are inconspicuous and tiny and here's where they're located on the forearm and back.
I had good fun lighting him up.
He can be mounted on the stand to simulate flying poses.
For me, the true test of it's articulation is how well it can mimic this pose.
I think a bit more hip articulation would have helped.
I personally feel that Hot Toys Endoskeleton was an engineering marvel. Hot Toys Iron Man Mark 3 comes quite close to that but has way more play value.
