Toying Around Reviews - Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary Iron Man

Today we will be taking a look at the 80th Anniversary Iron Man. The Marvel Legends Series is a Lower-Tier toy line that both collectors and non-collectors alike would be interested in. With multiple scales ranging from 4 inches to 12 inches and a good mix of detail and articulation, these figures tend to look good both inside and outside of the box. This 80 years line is a sub-line for Marvel Legends this year, Hasbro and Marvel are taking us back to some classic looks for some of our favorite heroes.


PACKAGING: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.

Iron Man comes in a new style box that we will be seeing for all the 80 years figures, This style box was also used last year for the 10th anniversary MCU figures. The front of the box has a nice clean look to it, on the top you have the 80 years logo on the left, with the Marvel Legends logo on the right. Iron Man himself is clearly displayed in the middle, along with all his accessories. This is a perfect window box for anyone who wants to keep the figure mint in the box. At the bottom of the box, we have the classic Iron Man logo. Turning the box to the side we have a nice Alex Ross Iron Man picture. along with the Marvel Legends logo. Turning the box to the back we again have an Alex Ross picture along with a small bio on Iron Man: Genius industrialist and inventor Tony Stark creates a suit of armor for himself, powered by the arc reactor in his chest, becoming the hero, Iron Man. Turning the box around one more time we get that same Alex Ross artwork that is on the left side of the box.


OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.

Taking Iron Man out of the box we get an awesome look at the metallic gold and red that they used on this figure. The red and gold colors really pop on him.

RATING: What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?

PAINT JOB 5/5 The metallic paint on this Iron Man pops, I also didn’t see any real paint issues with any of the figures that I’ve seen in the stores. FIGURE SCULPT / POSING 5/5 The sculpt work on this Iron Man is probably one of the best that I’ve ever had in my hands. The joints on the figure move very nicely and with all the articulation on him you will have no issues getting him into any pose you want. DURABILITY 5/5 The plastic on Iron Man feels sturdy and I do not feel like he will break at all. OVERALL SCORE 5/5 If you are a fan of Iron Man this is a figure you want to pick up, He is nice in size and can get into almost any pose you want. I hope Hasbro repaints this figure to give us the classic stealth armor down the road. RETAIL COST: $24.99 I picked up my Iron Man at Target
