Today we will be taking a look at the Marvel Legends Iron Man Mark VII from the new Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary sub-line by Hasbro. The Marvel Legends Series is a Mid-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 the box.
Packaging: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.
Iron Man comes in the newly styled MCU 10th Anniversary box. The front of the box shows the 10th Anniversary logo on the top left and the Marvel Legends logo on the top right. Iron Man, along with his accessories is displayed in the middle of the box. The Bottom of the box shows off the Avengers A along with the 1st Avengers Movie logo, as this armor made its 1st appearance in the Avengers Movie. Turning the box to the side we have a little read-up on the Avengers Movie. The Back of the box again shows off the 10 years logo. Before that, we have a read-up on Iron Man next to the 1st Avengers Movie poster. The other side of the box shows off part of the build-a-picture that Hasbro is doing with this line. If you collect all the 10 years’ figures you can line them up and make a cool diorama.
Outside of the Box: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Looking at Iron Man out of the box you can see the nice red and gold they used on him. Hasbro took some time with this one and made the armor look just like it did in the movie.
Accessories: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.
Iron Man comes with two blast effects, along with an extra blasting and closed fist hand, The opposite hands are already attached to the figure.
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. Upper Bicep Swivel - This cut lets you turn the whole arm below the cut 360 degrees. 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 - 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 - 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. on the back of the figure, a few panels move on a hinge so you can make it look like he is flying.
Size Comparison: How does the size of this figure compare to others?
1st up we have Iron Man standing next to his newest armor that was used in Infinity War. next up we have Iron Man standing next to the armor that was used in the Civil War and Spider-Man’s Iron Spider arm.
Rating: What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?
Paint Job 5/5
The paint job is spot on. Hasbro did a very good job
Figure Sculpt 5/5
Sculpt is perfect. I mean I really have nothing to nitpick about.
Posing / Durability 4/5
the only real issue is with the open hand, there is no hinge on it so it is always in an up position.
Overall Score 4.66/5
Iron Man is a solid figure. I would say pick him up if you are an Iron Man fan and or if you are a Marvel Legends completes.
Retail Cost: $24.99 I picked up my Iron Man at Target.
Time for some Toying Around!!
