The red packet I got was a BIG one :)
I usually don't dwell on boxes but this time round, Hot Toys packaging deserves some mention for the way it was thought out and designed. It adds up to the overall excitement. Opening the cover flap held together by magnets reveals the inner chest.
There's so much to cover about this Iron Man that one post will not be sufficient. I haven't even began to scratch the surface of this wonderful masterpiece! Here's a close-up shot of Iron Man Mark III - head shot
His beautifully sculptured armor - amazing synergy of materials, some soft and hard plastic combined to perfection. You can't tell them apart unless you touched it.
Let's not forget the legs. Overall, this figure is really stunning to behold and cannot be truly appreciated unless it is held right in front of you. Finally, a 1/6 realization of one of Marvel comic's greatest superhero.
Let's not forget the man behind the iron mask - Tony Stark, played to perfection by Robert Downey Jr. He brought a depth to the character as only he could as his own troubled past made him an appropriate choice for the part.
Again, Hot Toys head sculpt is spot on as Robert Downey Jr made Tony Stark a "likeable a$$hole", which was what the director Jon Favreau was going for. (Head sculpt by Hot Toys, body and suit by Saturday Toys)
In the Marvel comics, Iron Man is supposedly Tony Stark's body guard so that he can keep his true identity secret. Not so in the movie version - he's too proud of who he is and what he has become.
Yup! One of the many surprises (well, not really a surprise since we have already seen preview pictures but still, the WOW factor kicks in - your own personal torchlight for those blackout moments)
Well, it's lights out for me till the next post where more of Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Iron Man Mark III is revealed... I can't wait.
