I wasn't sure what to make of Strike Eagle Iron Man when I first saw it, because I was interested as it was a new mold but not necessarily excited because the accessories were weird and it seemed like another Silver Centurion shell, but hey, I liked that so I eventually caved in and snagged the 5-jointed, 4-inch figure for $6.
Despite having a very silly name and lack of feathers, this is a bulky, nifty, well-armored figure. It looks like an amped-up version of one of the movie suits with a Silver Centurion deco applied to it, with precious little else going on here. The hands have spread-out fingers and aren't designed to hold anything, and the bulky feet have no difficulty standing up.
Red snap-on jet boosters fit on the arms, but oddly are not the same red color as the body plastic. The boosters have gold highlights, while the figure has silver.
I don't much think the accessories enhance this release, but the figure itself is fun and neat enough that I think I got my money's worth. If you like the idea of cheap action figures, you'll probably dig this one - especially if it's on sale. Along with Nano Shell Iron Man, Strike Eagle Iron Man is one of the better "cheap" figures released so far. Certainly better than the initial four, which were redecoes of existing molds.
