Even the vilest villain can a change of heart.

Recently, Doctor Doom had a change of heart. After the events of Secret Wars, Doom was a changed man. When Iron Man in incapacitated, Doom takes up the mantle of Iron Man to prove to the world he is a better person. 

Hasbro has given us an amazing Walgreens exclusive with the Infamous Iron Man. This is an incredible sculpt. I think the sculpt is the same that was used with the Iron Skull, but I’m not 100% sure. Either way, it looks great. Even though it is Iron Man’s armor, it still has that distinct look that still tells us this is Doctor Doom. 

I love the paint apps on this figure. He has his classic grey and green, but I love how Hasbro dulled the grey. Very cool effect. He comes with a 2 part cape and hood combination. While the cape is removable, unfortunately, the hood isn’t. Seems a little weird to me and kind of bums me out. I wish the hood would come off. There’s also a Victor Von Doom head the replaces easy enough.

He also comes 2 sets of hands: one set of closed fist and one set of open palms. There are also 2 energy blasts that plug into open palms. And finally, 2 energy surges that go around each arm.

Bottom line this is a solid figure. Though seeing how Hasbro has just finished the Fantastic Four, most of us were hoping for a classic Doctor Doom. But this is still a cool figure.

Infamous Iron Man is a Walgreen’s exclusive, so keep checking your local Walgreens!
