You have seen me post on my toy blog the MC Toys MCF-017 1/6 scale "The Avengers' Tony Stark" clothing set in an earlier entry HERE (with some slight customization) and also the Asmus Toys "The Avengers" Tony Stark outfit set HERE. Now it's time to do a comparison of both outfits and that's best done by putting them side by side ;p and we've got Hot Toys Tony Stark figure to pose in them as well.
On the left is the Hot Toys 1/6 scale Tony Stark head sculpt from Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS123 Iron Man 2 1/6th scale Mark IV Limited Edition Collectible Figurine set (reviewed HERE) on a Benny Khoo (email@example.com) customized 1/6 scale Light Up Arc Reactor (Iron Man Mark VI version seen in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers) TTM21 body (reviewed HERE) wearing the MC Toys MCF-017 1/6 scale "The Avengers' Tony Stark" clothing set (also customized - sleeves of the dark grey long sleeve T-shirt cut off and sewn to the black short sleeve Black Sabbath tee) while on the right we have Hot Toys 1/6 scale Tony Stark head sculpt from Hot Toys MMS Iron Man Mark III (the FIRST Iron Man figure to be ever released by Hot Toys) - reviewed way back in January 2009 HERE - wearing the Asmus Toys "The Avengers" Tony Stark outfit set. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures :)
You can tell the difference in the two head sculpts immediately when you put them side by side. The Hot Toys Mark VI Tony Stark head is much better and more life-like than the Mark III version. The MC Toys outfit fits better and is not as loose as the Asmus Toys version. The plus point is that the Asmus Toys version comes with the metal bracelets. The Asmus Toys version comes with regular dress shoes whereas the MC toys Tony Stark outfit comes with Pampa boots.
Aside from the side profile comparisons, here are some pictures of the two Tony Stark(s) as seen from the front, with the MC Toys outfit on the left and Asmus Toys version on the right.
