Hasbro Iron Man 3 Marvel Legends Iron Man Mark 42 Action FigureI love Legends but own very few of them - I pounced on a Iron Man Mark 42 when I saw it dumped at Ross for seven bucks in early 2013. As far as I can tell the whole wave hit, but I only saw Iron Man and Ultron - Rhodes didn't sit around. The new sculpt is a really nice figure for the lower price, but I can't say that it would've been worth $20 to me. Sure, it's on par with Star Wars: The Black Series out of the box, but something of it just doesn't reek of value - perhaps the fact we've had dozens of Iron Men from various movies in Legends since the early 2000s.

Hasbro Iron Man 3 Marvel Legends Iron Man Mark 42 Action FigureWhile a couple of 3 3/4-inch figures based on this design were released, Hasbro's 6-inch version of the Mark 42 has far superior deco and a great sculpt. Bend-and-swivel wrists are joined by rocking ankles, double elbow and knee articulation, and a fantastic range of movement on the head. The lack of a good stand means that he's likely to nosedive without support, but I was really pleased with the various action poses I could squeeze out of this guy.

The sculpt and the copious gold paint are what may make or break this figure for you - I saw lots of these with poor coverage in the paint department, but for $7 I was able to relax my standards enough to pull the trigger. The red paint shows through gold pretty easily, and this was very visible in Iron Man 2 3 3/4-inch figure lines. Here, it's a very "your mileage may vary" situation and I strongly suggest anyone in the market for this figure examine it up close before buying it.

I don't have all the parts to build the Iron Monger build-a-figure yet, but the arm looks nice - Iron Man has a metallic swirly red plastic, and the Monger has blue. I'm a little concerned this could be problematic in the future as this kind of plastic isn't known for its longevity, but hopefully Hasbro made it better this time around. I like it, I'd suggest picking it up as a great desk accessory.
