    I'm not going to pretend for even a second that I'm not getting this. There's too much right with this version of Iron Man too miss out on.
    On the other hand, the Batman is an easy pass.

    I preordered that Batman, I'm not sure if I really want it though haha. I'm surprised it's basically all new molding.

    Mafex Mando. I hate that I love you

    Fuck the stupid rifle holster. I MANAGED to get the rifile to stay for a bit by having to stretch the straps. I had to stretch the strap that attaches to the rifle, and stretch both holsters to get it to sit properly on the figure.

    Got a metal wire poking through the cape

    Whats up with the pink gun?? Jeez.

    I wish the flame ported in somewhere like Black Series Boba.

    but man, the articulation and sculpt is amazing.

    Also I bet they'll put Mando's jetpack in a new figure, the same way the Dark Knight series had accessories included with different figures.


    Mando you finnicky bitch.

    I wish AmazonJP would get the lowest price offered right at the beginning. I’m always preordering at TCP, only for the price to drop a month or 2 later on AJP, so I’m always canceling poor TCP’s.

    Why in the world does Classic Iron Man come with a Proton Canon? Someone at Medicom get their suits confused? If these were cheaper I'd buy it just for the canon to give to my Modular Iron Man Legends figure. Guess I could easily resell the rest...

    That moment when you consider buying a figure just for it's accessory...

    I don't suppose there is anyone buying this Iron Man figure and doesn't want the Blaster? If so, LMK!:D

    That cannon is going to need its own invisible support stand, like Mando's flame effect.

    There is a clear pole that supports the front of the cannon but invisible? I'm not sure what you mean by that.

    I’m 99% sure I don’t. I know I wouldn’t ever display him with it, so what’s the point?

    I missed that picture. I saw the other one where they cropped out most of the stand.

    Whoa - people complain about Super7 prices, but this Iron Man is crazy. Its basically 10x the price of the Marvel Legends equivalent and closer to 1/6 scale pricing.

    How fast will these companies keep pushing up prices?

    Based on the current price of imports it's not that out of the left field for it to cost this much after including a large accessory. MAFEX, Figuarts, Figma, Amazing Yamaguchi... they all average around $80 to $100 anymore. Especially if you buy from shops that have to import them from Japan like BBTS.

    Digging that Iron Man, but not the price. That's really high.

    ...I'll still get it though, lol.

    Anyone notice the difference between the face plates, other than the eyes? Is there any other difference?

    This doesn't represent a price increase. Batman is $85, which is pretty normal for that line. This is deluxe pricing, but it's the same price as their Mk 85 Iron Man that went up for pre-order a full year ago. I'm hoping there is some diecast in both Iron Man figures, like they did with Cyborg. Doctor Strange is also priced high because of his accessories.

    While the standard figure prices aren't technically going up, I think we will see more of these deluxe figures, for the same reason that Mezco does it. They can't release more figures, so they have to pack the figures with more value and charge more to grow their business.
