5 Marvel Movie Characters I Want Figures Of (But Won’t Happen)

As a long time Star Wars figure collector, I’ve gotten use to the fact if I wait long enough I’ll see a character from that universe in figure form. However, the Marvel Movie universe is another story. While heavy on the main characters, these lines have been rather small in scope and depth. That said […]

Iron Man (Classic Comic)

Since I’ve been playing Avengers Alliance on Facebook, I’ve had desire to add some comic style figure to fill out some of my Marvel lines. Since Iron Man figures are still fairly available on clearance round these parts I picked up a comic version of Iron Man. Appearance: Right up front the thing that drew […]

Iron Man Mk.VII (Fusion Armor)

Well, after getting the Shield Launcher Captain America from the Avengers line and seeing it was not as bad as I feared, I convinced myself to go ahead and buy another figure, this time the Iron Man Mk.VII armor from the Movie Series sub-line.

Whiplash – Iron Man 2

I’ve been putting off writing this for almost a year. Why? Well hopefully by the end you will know. Whiplash is one of just a couple of figures in the Iron Man line with a human face. And I think we can be glad that number is limited. Appearance: Have you ever been really excited […]

Whiplash (Mega Bloks)

I thought since there was a new series of Marvel Mega Bloks figures, I’d tempt fate and get one. I ended up with Whiplash from Iron Man 2. I needed a bad guy to go with War Machine and Spidey, so it’s not all bad. Appearance: Any likeness to Mickey Rourke is purely coincidental. That’s […]

War Machine (Mega Bloks)

I have to say as a character, I know very little of War Machine other than what I saw in Iron Man 2. However, that hasn’t seemed to keep from latching on to him as my Iron Man armor of choice. I got very lucky with this one. There was one open empty bag when […]

Heroclix War Machine

This is going to be a bit of a short one. I’m not a Heroclix player, but I couldn’t pass up a mini War Machine. This particular Marvel hero was a Free Comic Book Day 2o1o give away. My local shop, must have had a few left over and put them out this year to get […]

Iron Man (Modular Armor)

At this point, there are quite a lot of Iron Man figures still clinging to the pegs at stores, either from the Iron Man 2 movie line, or as part of the regular Marvel Universe assortments. However, for the Modular Armor version, Hasbro upped the ante just enough to merit yet another purchase.

Iron Man & Stilt Man Minimates

I’ll admit I bough this for the Iron Man and had no idea who Stilt Man was. Following the pattern of one figure I want and one I’m not sure about, this pack was a bit of surprise. Now that I’ve had a chance to look him up, I know Stilt Man is Wilbur Day. […]

Iron Man Mark 1 – Iron Man 2 (Comic Version)

This wasn’t a figure I had planned on getting. If anything, I planned on getting the movie version. However, after finishing Essential Iron Man Volume 1, I changed my mind. I’d never really been an Iron Man fan. I’d be lying if I said the movie didn’t have anything to do with it. Of course, […]

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.

Iron Man (Extremis Armor)

The most recent Iron Man version in the Marvel Universe line is this Extremis Armor Iron Man. The basics behind the new suit is that Tony Stark got infected by a nano-virus that bestowed upon him the ability to interface directly with the hardware and …

I fell for it. Normally, I can see repaints coming a mile off. In the case of the Classic Iron Monger, I missed it.

Hulkbuster Iron Man

Much like Iron Monger, I was attracted to this figure because it’s a big robot looking dude. From an engineering side, this is much more what I’d expect an Iron Man suit to look like. To be honest, this version of the armor reminds me a bit of the the later issues of “Codename: Spitfire” […]

Iron Monger – Iron Man 2

While I was waiting for Iron Man 2 to come out, I thought it would be a good time to revisit the first film on DVD. I was surprised to find out there was a good part of that I hadn’t remembered. One thing that I didn’t forget was the battle royal at the end between Iron […]

Iron Man Mark VI – Iron Man 2

This was actually one of the first of the Iron Man 2 figures I bought. Why did I wait so long to review it? Well, I really wanted to wait until I saw the film to understand if there was really anything different in this suit.

Iron Man Mark V – Iron Man 2

The concept behind the Mk. 5 Iron Man armor is fairly simple. Regular Iron Man armor is not that easy to transport nor conceal, therefore Stark developed a bare-bones version that can be lugged around in the form of a large suitcase.

Iron Man Mark II – Iron Man 2

So, What can be said about the Mk.2 armor? The easiest thing is to simply say this is a repaint of the exact same mold used for the Mk.3 armor (and that would be nothing but the truth), although that wouldn’t do this figure justice.

War Machine -Iron Man 2 (Movie Version)

After being truely enthralled with the comic version of War Machine, I couldn’t help but pick up the movie version of the character. The early photos and promo materials show that on screen War Machine is much like his comic book  namesake. He’s bigger and more heavily armed than the armored suit that Tony Stark wears. We […]
