Toying Around Reviews - Marvel Legends Iron Man 2020

Today we will be taking a look at Iron Man 2020. The Iron Man of 2020 is not Tony Stark but that of Tony Stark's future first cousin once removed, Arno Stark from an alternate reality. In 1984 Iron Man 2020 made his first appearance in Machine Man 2020 #2. 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. Happy Birthday, Baby Huey!


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 a picture of the figure itself as well as a small bio. Arno Stark wields powerful weapons and a superior armor suit as Iron Man 2020. 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 this new Iron Man 2020 out of the box we can see that it is the same body as the 80th anniversary Iron Man from last year. They added a new belt, a shoulder/chest overlay, and a new helmet. With the helmet, you can see Arno’s eyes from inside, just like you could back in the comics.


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

Iron Man 2020 comes with, left and right closed-fisted hands, 2 blaster effects, 2 boot thruster effects, and fire/smoke effects.


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

IRON MAN’S ARTICULATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING: BALL JOINTED HEAD/NECK - 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 - It 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 - With this it 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 - The joint allows you to bend the leg itself back to the butt of the figure.

BOOT CUT - This lets you swivel the boot around 360 degrees.

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 2020 stands right around the 6.5-inch mark. Here is Iron Man 2020 standing next to the Avengers Video Game figure and also the 80th anniversary Iron Man from last year.


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

PAINT JOB 5/5 - The metallic paint on Iron Man makes him pop. It is even brighter than the one from the 80th anniversary Iron Man one from last year.

FIGURE SCULPT 5/5 - The sculpt on this Iron Man is perfect. He looks like he came out of the comics.

POSING 5/5 - No complaints at all, you can get Iron Man in just about every pose you want to.

ACCESSORIES: 5/5 - Hasbro knocked it out of the park. Instead of giving us just the same old blast effects they went and added blasts for the feet and also an extra effect so we can have him pose to look like he is flying.

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 - This is really well-done-looking Iron Man, some people don’t like the look or the storyline, but taking that aside the figure itself is just about as perfect as you can get with an Iron Man figure.
