Marvel 3 3/4 Infinite Series-Iron Man

Back when I was heavy into reading comics, late 80’s early 90’s,I only knew of three Iron Man armors. The original red and gold, Silver Centurion and the oversized red and gold 90’s armor. Since getting back into toy collecting the amount of Iron Man armors has grown exponentially, and no one has benefitted more form this than Hasbro. With so many different action figure renditions of shell head, It’s hard to not get sucked into the variety vortex. Currently I own the Marvel Universe classic and 90’s style because of my childhood connection with the two. Buzzchuck also sent me a carded Mark 5 figure a while back, which up to now had been my most updated version of Iron Man. I knew that I would soon need to change with the times for the blogs sake and picture taking purposes. I would hate to display an original styled Iron Man next to a Heroic Age Captain America. I’m maniacal that way. It just wouldn’t look right. So while I am still trying to add some of the older styled figures, especially ones who appeared in the Secret Wars Saga, I will also be looking for updated versions of them. It’s a tall task but my birthday is less than a month away and hopefully someone from the fam will read this and provide me with some much needed action figure aid in my ventures 😀   But enough with the rambling rhetoric and on to the figure! I was curious as to what this figure would look like out of package and very pessimistic. I had seen it before in Heroic Age three packs, but with this new 3 3/4 Marvel Infinite Series release I was able to snag him up individually. The plastic used for this figure is very soft, almost rubbery but the detail is amazing! I’m not crazy about the thigh cuts/articulation but it works. In fact I had a great time posing this figure as the articulation allows for limitless pose-ability. The paint is spot on and the ports/repulsors, and there’s a lot of them, all have nice glowing effect to them.The card itself is pretty damn snazzy for those of you who like to display your figures carded.Enjoy the pics!

    • Way too many.Unless your a huge Iron Man fan,there really isn’t any need to hunt down all the variations.I do still want to pick up the Silver Centurion at some point.Love that armor.

    • Are you kidding me? Those Marvel Legends figures are crazy sick!Although some have noted that the shade of red used on this Iron Man is a bit darker than the Legends version.

  1. I’ve more Iron Men than fingers these days so I will have to pass though he looks cool. I picked up Hulk and Grim Reaper from that wave and I’d love to find Hyperion for myself. The articulation on these guys is top notch certainly and they can be put into great poses.

    • Im over those spiral clips too Kevin.It doesnt even look like its coming out of his repulsors lol.Armored Batmans blue energy accessory looks better.
