Celebrating 80 years of Marvel Comics, Hasbro gives us an Iron Man that’s outstanding.

Since Marvel Legends first started in 2002, we’ve gotten a lot of versions of Iron Man. Especially when you factor in the entire Marvel movies, but this one that Hasbro has released is probably the most iconic version.

This figure is based on Alex Ross’ art and it really shows. This is a great sculpt that compliments Ross’ art. It’s funny, the sculpt really looks like the old Mego figure of Iron Man. Just something about it. I love it. There’s a really nice metallic paint on the figure. Really makes it. 

The figure comes with 3 heads. One is a standard Iron Man head. One is an Iron Man head with a nose. This is what really looks like Ross’ art. It really looks nice. The last is a Tony Stark head. This head really looks nice. Very nice paint apps and sculpt. 

Iron Man also comes with 2 sets of hands. A pair of fists and a pair of open hands. With the open hands, you have 2 sets of repulsor blasts: One tight and one wide. They look great on the figure. 

Every accessory easily is removed and replaced in the figure. And he has all the points of articulation you expect with all Marvel Legends.

Bottom line, this is just a great figure for your collection. I highly recommend it.

Many thanks to Hasbro for letting take a look at this awesome figure.
