Articulation is the standard for the line, but I was surprised to find that next to nothing was blocked! This figures has the best ball-jointed head yet with slight up, swivel, good side tilt, and good down movements. The ball shoulders are slightly blocked by the c-clips, but they do come off if they’re in the way. The arms also have ball elbows and swivel wrists. There’s some good range on the chest pivot while ball hips, double knees, and ball ankles finish out the figure.
The movie figures have play accessories instead of posing accessories like the comics series. This Iron Man includes a blue version of the missile launcher that comes with the Mark II. It attaches snugly to either arm and the color scheme fits in with the figure. A red missile is also included.
The figure comes with the standard base and three “armor” cards to create your own armor. I’ve talked about them already in previous Iron Man reviews. They’re neat, but until IronManCard.com goes live or the Rolling Battle Headquarters is released, they’re just nice window dressing for the figure.
So far, I’ve yet to pick up anything from Iron Man2 that left me cold. Granted, I’m being picky with the line and just grabbing a few, but the ones I’ve picked up were ones I wanted or that looked cool and I haven’t been disappointed yet. The Fusion Armor’s blue color scheme makes him one of the nicer looking figures in the line and, ultimately, I just couldn’t pass him up.
