IRON MAN Mk 1
YEH!! I am IRON MAN – cant wait to see the movie . . . I’ve always wanted to get a figure of the first Iron Man suit and the Monday after Free Comic Book Day I found him in the toy section of Kmart. 4 inches and fully articulated . . . bloody AWESOME. Here’s some pics – yeh the package is shabby, but but I couldn’t wait to set him free, so there’s a big tear mark across the top.
. . . backside.
. . . see the Hasbro I.D. number? . . . Well, the otaku in Japan whine and complained about the manufacture’s name and the I.D. number being on the figures made here, but they are always worried about buying a “fake” dolly or anime figure, they don’t understand that at least here in the U.S. that little bit of annoyance is important, and to collectors like me. ain’t no big thing.
I bought some aluminum, rust and flat black enamel paint to do a bit of modding, like maybe some rust and hydraulic oil stains, maybe some battle damage.
Found this . . .
there was this little packet with two transparent cards and a backing sheet . . .
“Secret Plans” stolen from Tony Stark . . .
. . . IRON . . .
. . . MAN!
A “War Machine” . . . AC/DC
