Iron Man Mark III by Hasbro

Released by Hasbro in conjunction with the film's release, this is the only 12" Iron Man available for now (Hot Toys is producing the Movie Masterpiece version - can't wait for that to happen, especially since we have seen what they can do with Robocop). The lights and sound effects are nice but the problem I have is with the poses or lack of it coz it really is quite limited and the only non-laughable pose seems to be meant only for flight mode. But like my son says, "He can fly (with flight and combat sounds)!"

Robert Downey Jr is absolutely brilliant as Tony Stark/Iron Man - one of the best casting in years, alongside Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne/Batman. The preview pictures of the new Batman by Hot Toys is also way better than their first offering. Exciting times ahead!!

After the movie's credits, S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (played by Samuel L Jackson) visits Stark to discuss about the Avenger Initiative. Can't wait for that to happen - seems more likely than Justice League.
