Released: August 2014
Manufactured by: Hot Toys
Guest Review by Kevin
Another Iron Man, another day…seems to be many people’s view of Hot Toys continuous milking of the Iron Man 3 franchise. As usual though, these are hard to resist and the fact that mark XX is a toy fair exclusive made it all the more worth it to me.
Essentially it looks like a repaint of the mark VII, but it actually took parts from future upcoming releases and put them all together. The body and arms come from the mark VII while the legs are from the Heartbreaker armor and the head is actually from the Silver Centurion armor.
The head and legs are something we haven’t seen just yet and to an extent make this figure more than just a repainted mark VII. The legs are sculpted very nicely and look very heavy duty compared to other Iron Man releases and teases what the Heartbreaker will be like.
As with other Iron Man releases, there is some minor battle damage with small scratches throughout the armor, creating the impression that this has seen some use.
Accessories wise, this comes with the standard set of hands, a left and right arm missile, a pair shoulder pads with missiles exposed, and the Iron Man 3 base. Like with the release of Midas, this base does not light up, but it does come with the dynamic stand rod.
One cool feature of this release is the addition of normal shoulder blades for when you don’t want to use the shoulder pads. This is a nice addition especially if you want this figure to be unique from other Iron Man armors.
I do like this figure a lot, but otherwise recommend this to the hardcore Iron Man fan. On one hand it’s a great figure and a nice paint job of an Iron Man armor, but on the other hand the casual collector could probably pass on this. Especially with the eventual release of Avengers: Age of Ultron…I hope you guys are saving up.
