Hot Toys Iron Man 2 – Suit-Up Gantry with Mk IV Review | MMS160 | Unboxing

Finally decided to open one of our Hot Toys figure namely the Iron Man 2 Suit-Up Gantry with Mark IV so we could do a quick review. Well, it was not actually quick because it took me 3 days to finish the photo-set because I keep on messing up the camera settings. Anyway, all I could say is that we really really love this figure! I feel guilty keeping him inside the box because something like this deserves to be displayed. The details of the armor and likeness of the head sculpt to actor Robert Downy Jr.  is just amazing! Bang for buck wise, this is a sure winner! A must have for any Hot Toys collector. A very nice subject for photography as well!

 STAND

  • The stand is something I got disappointed at.
  • The printed title of Iron Man 2 looks cheap and of low quality

BONUS ROBOTIC ARM – usually referred to as “JARVIS”

  • this robotic arm is holding a fire extinguisher nozzle at the end as depicted in the “Prototype Test Attempt”  scene in the movie.
  • you can only get this particular unit as part of the Suit Up Gantry plus Mark IV bundle.
  • there came out a Gantry only product, but it does not have this bonus robot arm.

ARTICULATION
