So I finally saw Iron Man 3 with the family. It was definitely my least favorite of the three, but I still really enjoyed it. Heck, I’d be happy watching Robert Downy Jr. just play Tony Stark on a 24/7 Reality Show. He 100% nailed that character in every single Iron Man appearance.
Now that I know the whole story, I was happy to dive into the assortment of Iron Man toys and action figures that Hasbro sent my way for review. I’m a sucker for superheroes, so I couldn’t wait to dive right in and… ahem… “assemble” this post.
First up is the Iron Man 3 Arc Strike Iron Man figure which passed the daddy test. I like this larger 10″ action figures with sound. When you tilt Shell-Head the right way, he gets into flight mood and you hear the cool jet propulsion sounds. You can also hit a button on his side to activate a number of phrases from the tin man himself.
Next, I played around with the Iron Man 3 Assemblers action figures. I’ve probably owned a few hundred different superhero action figures in my life (okay, fine. That’s a very conservative number.), but these were a bit different. Just like Tony Stark, you get to tinker around with his armor! Each suit comes apart at the main joints and every piece is completely interchangeable and compatible with another figure. Plus, each figure comes with extra limbs to swap in and out.
Yes, you get to play Dr. Frankenstein with Iron Man’s many armors!
Take a closer look at these figures courtesy of my energetic assistant, Ryan.
Of course, pictures can’t do these toys justice. So I donned my armor and once again requested the aid of my trusty assistant. Clearly he was more interested in winning an Academy Award, then helping me out. But you be the judge.
Did you see Iron Man 3 yet?
