Default Marvel Premier Collection Classic Iron Man

Classic Red and Gold has always been my favorite armor.

Great sculpt, interesting action pose, well-done metallic paint, substantial base, what more could you ask for?

I have to say that is a great looking statue.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

Price point and size are about right but the more I look at it the more I hate the pose. If his right arm was bent and clenched in a fist it would have been ok. His torso is turned a little too much.

And is it just me or is his chest sunken in and the bottom of his rib cage/top of his abs sticking out? It's hard to tell with his leg there but his stomach seems to stick too far forward.

I'd agree with some of the complaints on the pose.. if it were a more modern armor.

But I think the exaggerated stance is fitting for the era of comics being depicted.

That's an interesting point. Maybe we need more statues that have poses that go with the era they are from.....gotta wonder about that right foot though, seems to pointing in an impossible direction.

LOL...I didn't even notice that right foot. I tried standing that way myself and it's possible but very awkward.

Not sure if this is official but here are some details:

A Diamond Select Toys release! We are go for launch! The Marvel Premier Collection line of statues continues with the armored Avenger, Iron Man! Wearing his classic suit of red-and-gold armor, this resin statue shows Iron Man posed atop a pile of crumbling debris, facing down an unseen foe or foes with repulsors at the ready. Figure stands approximately 13.75" tall including his base, and features detailed sculpting and paint work. Limited to only 3,000 pieces, it comes packaged in a full-color box with a certificate of authenticity. Sculpted by Clayburn Moore! Look for it to be released in July.

Regarding the pose, and I might be mistaken about this as I was quite young, but I thought he used to have to stabilize when firing from his hands? I.E. Now we kinda take for granted that when hes firing a cannon from his hand, he has other things that stabilize his body. I "thought" that back in the day he had to stabilize a bit so he didn't blow over.

I mean think about the kick you get on some hand guns. Now instead it's basically a cannon in your hand.


Just an average every day guy, beating people up and buying nerd statues in his spare time.

Good thought. I'd be interested in a nice Cap too.
