Hot Toys Iron Man Mark III - 1/6 MMS256 D07 - video review and photos

Finally I got my hands on a Mark III, its Hot Toys latest diecast release and the third Mark III of this company after many years of the first 2 releases. Unfortunately there are still lots of plastic parts on this figure, so call it a diecast is really a bit borderline. Especially the abs section is all plastic and not even with an articulation. So they give you a secondary piece that allows you to do the "landing pose", which is a "safe" way to do and it works like a charm with the replacement part. I understand there are some limitations in terms of articulation and diecast parts, but i think they could have done more. But overall this is a very solid a nice release, especially for those never owned a mark III before. The paintjob brought up some discussion but I think the cherry or candy apple red still is the correct choice compared to the suit up scene in Iron Man 1. Oh...and important fact: you can definately close the gap between shoulder and torso with the shoulder pad armor, they are very flexible and can cover the gap.

Enjoy some photos and a video review.
