I wanted to get this figure when it first came out. But I was hoping for a miracle to happen, that it would go for 50-70% sale!! After a while, this figure was dissapearing fom the shelves. I was at Sogo a couple of months back, there were 5 pieces. Then I went again about a month later, there were 4 pieces left. I went there a couple more times..still no buyer nor sale. Yesterday I went again, only 1 piece left!! The miracle didn't happen but then I still got it for 10% off.
Now on the Iron Man. Hasbro did a decent job on this figure. Of course you can't compare to the other Iron Man figures out there, especially from Hot Toys in which you pay a premium.
It has good sculpt, good metallic red and gold paint job and loads of play value! It has a removable mask, a jetpack (wonder whats it for since he could fly without it), snap on blaster x 2, snap on laser vision targeting harness, 6 projectiles (3 repulsor missiles, 2 missiles and 1 arm canon) and a retractable long range artillery! It has electronic speech "I am Iron Man!" "Repulsor Blast" "Target Engaged!" and blast effect sound, flying and landing sound plus lights on chest and hand. Articulation is quite basic at hands, elbows, legs and knees. This figure display well!
Collectible Value: 5/10 Price may go up in future as the next Iron Man movie is coming. However there may be re-issue on this figure.
Play Value: 10/10 C'mon what more could you ask for?
