The Mafex Iron Man is a miracle of modern day action figure engineering with a few chinks in his armor. Visually he looks better than I thought he would. He scales pretty well with both Legends and other Mafex figures. He’s about the same height as the Hasbro Model 4 if you extend the drop down hips a tad. Lol The paint, sculpt, and proportions are top notch and rival the best Mafex figures.
The figure only suffers from three substantial flaws. Two involve his articulation. 1 the head mobility is very limited looking up and down which is important for flying characters. 2 the butterfly joints function well but they look terrible from most angles. The third problem is with his accessories. Everything he comes with is cool, except for the ridiculous inclusion of the Proton cannon that doesn’t belong to this armor, nor it’s continuity. A figure this expensive should pack everything you need for the armor it represents and that thing took away from the budget. He should’ve come with an epic Uni-Beam! I’d excuse most of these things with toy lines but not at this price point.
But all in all, this is still a pretty great figure. I love some of my Legends Iron Men but this adds something special to the armory. I’ll give it a 9/10. check out our store as we have him in stock but hurry up limited amount in stock
