This is probably going to be the hardest shadow yet. It’s a fairly well known character, but this version isn’t by one of the big companies.

Iron Man Mk.VI (Power Up Glow)

As a matter of principle, I usually shun gimmick figures. In most cases these features are either hideous to look at or mess with the articulation in some way. In the case of this Iron Man figure it is the later scenario but as it turns out, the end result is quite above tolerable in that regard.

Black Guard

Without knowing yet much about the plot of the movie, I can venture a guess that the Black Guard is part of a much larger cadre of troops in the service of the bad guy (red and black as a color scheme kind of give away their allegiance),

Kitty Pryde

Hasbro released Kitty Pryde as figure number 17 in their second series of Marvel Universe figures. At this point, it is no surprise that she uses the same female body we have seen before, and it is becoming increasingly evident that there is a need to add more variety into the line, at least as far as female characters are concerned.
