It's been years since I've picked up a 3 3/4
inch figurine, but the Marvel Universe Iron Extremis Armor
proved to be a rare gem. The figurine comes with a basic stand and a removable repulsor
"blast", picture card, a write-up and a code for registration on www.furyfiles.com
in a small "Top Secret" envelope.
The Extremis Armor
is not to be confused with Iron Man 2
's Mark VI Armor
with the same triangular arclight. Extremis is fused with Tony Stark's body, making him a cyborg and with many enhanced capabilities. The Mark VI is merely a modification of the Mark IV Armor
with a cleaner, non-Paladium based power source and Tony is still very much human.
The finishing on the Extremis Armor
is very good. Check out the shine. You'd probably see this kind of shine on Hot Toys
1/6 scale Iron Man 12 inch figures. The face plate is more streamlined compared to the comics version. The flight flaps on the armor are visible. In fact, the should flap pivots up and down to accommodate the poseable arms. The only things I don't like about this figurine is Tony's "thunder hips", the loose wriknee joints and Hasbro's restrictive hip joints which makes it difficult to pose the figures in a kneeling position.
There is now very limited stock of the Extremis Armor Iron Man
on the shelves. I picked this one up at the Sunday market in Amcorp Mall
for RM40. You'd still be able to find one in mint condition if you looked around. If you're really keen, try the 2nd floor.
