I’m a huge fan of the first Iron Man movie, so you can understand my buying this action figure . . . $52.00 USD + tax and shipping . . . Amazon of course.

The Iron Man Mark 1 action figure by Revoltech was delivered to my P.O. Box on Tuesday but because the stupid P.O. closed at 12 noon I had to wait until Trashday (Thursday) before I could pick it up . . .

Anyway it’s fucking AWESOME !!
I’ve bought other Revoltech figures before, but the detailing on the Mark1 figure is unreal.

Thought I’d post a few pics . . . shot with the iPod Touch and the Photojojo wide angle/macro lens combo. Some images are with the default cam and some were taken with the Hipstamatic app (Hongdae Hipsta Pak).

. . . oh yeh, I had to add Iron Monger from the first movie, and the third version of Iron Man . . . the Hasbro company in China manufactured Iron Monger and the other Iron Man

Two images taken taken with the Hipstamatic app and the Hongdae Hipsta Pak:

IRON MAN Mk 1

MAN

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.

MAN

. . . backside.

MAN

. . . 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.

MAN

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.

MAN

Found this . . .
