Iron MongerOh baby! I wasn't collecting Hasbro's Iron Man line but I stumbled on this at a Kmart and basically went nuts over it. The DVD window toys for Iron Man 2 are really good, with bizarre and awesome repaints and giant hulking robot suits like Iron Monger here. In the movie Iron Monger used cast-off parts from the original armor, whereas in the comic... well, I don't read many comics, but I did research the comic art and this figure matches really nicely. It's wonderful. Surprisingly, it's also a reused Hulkbuster Iron Man body with new bits and pieces like the head, feet, shoulder armor, and hands. Take note, toymakers: this is how you reuse a mold.

Towering over other Iron Man releases just slightly, the 5-inch tall armored version of Obadiah Stane is a real heavy. I mean, just look at him-- he's bulky, armored, and has no visible guns but two big blue fists. It's gorgeous. Marvel's big bulky guys always look really cool in most of the artwork (see: Apocalypse, Thanos, Hulk) but the toys don't always translate (see: Hulk). Iron Monger works nicely because they got all the bulk and heft here and it really works. This big blue guy has a ton of articulation, but because of his unique structure he isn't exactly super-poseable. Sure, he has 18 meaningful points of articulation, but his hips just swivel, same as his ankles. With his giant feet, the Iron Monger is in no danger of falling down (or needing his display stand). He has some wires hanging off him, plus there are some armor bits which move-- the wrist armor, for example, can rotate around his forearm and the shoulder pads are also slightly articulated.

Iron MongerWhile the packaged photo shows what seems to be a metallic blue painted figure, the production Iron Monger is cast in blue with some black highlights (darklights?) and dash of red. The simple deco works for the figure quite well, and he does look a little dirtier than probably necessary. Some of the color is a little sloppy-- some red got out from the central reactor on his chest-- but it doesn't change the fact that this is one big mean looking pile of parts. I was getting worried Hasbro couldn't pull off big mean dudes at this scale, but Iron Monger shows that you can really do some great stuff in this line.

Since so few Iron Man figures aren't Iron Man, this one is easy to suggest as a strong "buy" even if (and especially if) you have the Hulkbuster Iron Man figure. Its range of motion is sensible for a hefty, overstuffed suit of armor and little details like the shoulder antenna and mechanisms on his back really sell this as a great little collectible. It's also slightly cheaper than the Bowen Iron Monger mini bust, which is a big plus in my book.
