Yes, there's a third Revol Mini. Yes, it's an Iron Man.

Revol Mini is a line that isn't even out yet, but it's already starting to feel old to me. Yes, there was a new version of Snake. Then it was coupled with Kinnikuman, which while he is a great figure, it's one that has been d...

Tomopop Review: Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42 + Hall of Armor photo
Tomopop Review: Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42 + Hall of Armor
by Andres Cerrato

It is very easy to make Iron Man toys. Given all of the armor possibilities, it's a goldmine for companies to drill through. Good Smile Company already found a lot of success with their first Nendoroid of Tony Stark's armors, the Iron Man Mk VII from The Avengers. After a quick sell-through, it's time to hit the mine again, this time delving into Iron Man 3's premier armor, the Mark 42.

Let's find out if you'll actually want to add this to your Hall of Armor in today's review!

Cardboard Iron Man is the best paper-based superhero ever

Maybe it's just me, but cardboard is starting to feel like the construction medium of this generation. Sure, people have been making boxy robot costumes out of cardboard for decades now, and they're alright, but just look at...

Avengers figma Iron Man has us in Mark 7 heaven photo
Avengers figma Iron Man has us in Mark 7 heaven
by Martin Siggers

We've already had the God of Thunder drop in on us, but now it's time for the second in Max Factory's range of Avengers figmas to take flight. Surprising no-one, it's noted beard-and-moustache connoisseur, enthusiastic drinker, and occasional superhero Tony Stark, aka Iron Man.

Iron Man's depicted in his 'Mark 7' armour which he dons in the latter part of The Avengers, a chunky, classically styled suit. No mincing words, this figma looks absolutely stunning. The sharp, clean armour lines, the outstanding red-and-gold-paintjob, the perfectly integrated joints (always an advantage of robotic-style figures)...it's A grade stuff from top to bottom. There's also the tempting option of the 'Full Spec.' version. Exclusive to the Good Smile Online Shop, it adds extra parts to depict his wrist-mounted missiles and rocket backpack, while also including an extra head which shows off the man underneath the machine.

The problem here is the same one which popped up with Thor, which is price. figma Iron Man will cost a breathtaking ¥7,800, while the Full Spec. version clocks in at ¥8,800. No two ways about it, that's a LOT of money, especially for something as small as a figma. It's also worth pointing out that (probably due to licencing issues) they aren't listed on the international GSC Shop page, so you'll have to navigate through the Japanese store. If you remain unfazed, Iron Man lands this August, and you can pre-order him by clicking below.
