"I am Ironman" is one of the figures that this figure says when his chest button is pushed, I am a big kid and loved the Ironman film and was really taken by the toys that Hasbro released to coincide with the film, now we all now that spin off merchandise is done to make money but some are much better than others.
Luckily this is one of the better ones and first impressions were good with a stunning box decked out in the red and yellow of Ironman and patterned with industrial plates and bolts, box also has funky cut off corners to make it really stand out from the pack also has a hole in the middle so you can activate Ironmans voice commands.
So then the fun starts when you try to get in the box as it is typical of toys from Asia you need a university degree to dismantle them, and as a collector I like to keep the box and and bits for the future but this will still display nicely in the box but be careful it is east to damage the box.Obviously this will not bother most kids who will just tear it the hell open but thought I would put it in my review anyway!
Once you get your hands on the figure it is clear to see it is a well thought out product it is 12" tall and stands menacingly on its own two feet and looks great, It is plastic but a lovely shiny finish and great colouring more than make up for it. It has batteries in it already which is a bonus and says three phrases when the chest button is pushed he also makes flying noises due to a button in his heel, the sound is great and is exactly like the film thankfully it is not to loud but loud enough to hear easily. also has glowing repulsor power in his hands when chest is pressed.
As usual these type of toys suffer where the joints of the legs meet the torso as it is difficult to replicate human features in those areas but to make it nicely poseable it has to be like that, this really is my only gripe with this fantastic toy. No it doesn't do much but is still quite clever may not keep younger ones amused for long but older kids like me (34yrs lol) will also display it as a model.
May be a little difficult to stomach the £20 price tag but I found it on offer in Tesco for £9.97 a real bargain, buy it at this price!!!
