Toying Around Reviews - Marvel Legends: Extremis Iron Man

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



Today we are looking at Iron Man from the Marvel Legends Puff Adder Build-A-Figure wave. This figure is based on the Extremis storyline from the Iron Man comic books back in 2006. The Marvel Legends Series is a lower-tier toy line that collectors and non-collectors alike would be interested in. This is an action figure line based on the characters of Marvel Comics, initially produced by Toy Biz, then by Hasbro. This line is in the 6-inch (150 mm) scale, with spin-off lines in the 4-inch (100 mm), 8-inch (200 mm), and 12-inch (300 mm) scale. these figures tend to look good inside and outside the box.

 

PACKAGING:

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

Iron Man comes packed in the new Marvel Legends windowless box. The top of the box has the Marvel Legends logo and the build-a-figure logo. A CG picture of Iron Man is in the middle of the box while the Avengers logo is at the bottom below it. On the left side of the box, we get a picture of the build-a-figure with a list of all the figures you need to collect to complete the figure. The back of the box has another CG picture of Iron Man, this time doing the superhero landing. We also get a small picture of the accessories included with the figure. Flipping the box to the right side now we get some artwork of Iron Man from the comics.

 

INSIDE OF THE BOX:

Let's take a look at how the figure comes packed inside.

Inside the box, we get the figure in a baggie since Hasbro is going plastic-free. The accessors also come in a little bag.

 

OUTSIDE OF THE BOX:

Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.

Taking Iron Man out we get a really good look at him, Hasbro did a really good job on this guy, The red plastic is a nice shade and the gold really pops on him. All the little details on him make it like he came right out of the comic book.
