Toying Around Reviews - Marvel Legends Infamous Iron Man

Today we will be taking a look at Walgreen's exclusive Infamous 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.


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

Iron Man comes packed in the stranded Marvel Legends Series box. You have the Legends Series logo at the top. Iron Man is clearly displayed in the middle through the large window that showcases the figure as well as the accessories. This gives great visibility for collectors that may not be opening it. On the bottom of the box, you have the Avengers logo as this is a part of the Avengers Line. On the left side of the box, we get some artwork of Iron Man. On the back of the box, you have the same artwork that is on the side as well as a small bio. Flipping the box to the right side now, you see we get the same artwork again.


Outside of the Box: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.

Taking Iron Man outside the box we get to see that this is the same Iron Man body that was a few years ago in the Black Panther Okoye wave. The only thing different on this figure is the paint job and the cape they added.


Accessories: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.

Iron Man comes with some energy and blast effects. a Doom head, and an extra pair of hands (Blasting and fist).


Articulation: How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!

Iron Man's articulation includes the following:

Hinged Ball Jointed Head - allows you to swivel the head 360 degrees and tilt the head back and forth. Ball Hinged Shoulders - gives the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm. Double Jointed Elbows - this allows you to bend the arm back to have the hands near the shoulders. Swivel Hinge Wrists - allows you to turn his wrists in a full 360-degree circle while also bending them up and down. Ab Crunch - this cut lets you be able to bend the figure front and back at the Abs. Waist Swivel - this lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist. Ball Jointed Legs - This allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion. Upper Thigh Swivel - the leg can rotate around a full 360 degrees. Double Jointed Knees - joint allows you to bend the leg itself all the way back to the butt of the figure. Hinged Ankles with rockers - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back. The rockers allow you to rock the ankles towards the outside and inside of the legs of the figure.


Size Comparison: How does the size of this figure compare to others?

Iron Man stands right at 6.5 inches tall. Here he is standing next to Iron Man which the figure's body was based on.


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

Paint Job 4/5 The paint Job isn’t bad, and the added paint on the chest does make it look like a different body rather than being a straight repaint. Figure Sculpt / Posing 3/5 The sculpt works well for the figure, however, with the cape, it is hard to get some of the poses you would like with a Doom Iron Man. Durability 4/5 While the figure is well made and I don’t see or feel it breaking down anytime soon. Overall Score 3.66/5 Retail Cost: $19.99 You can only pick this figure up at TARGET!
