Product Review: Iron Man 3 The Mandarin Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys

Product Summary: Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3 has broken box office records worldwide. From his first menacing appearance in early film trailers, to the surprising character twist in this blockbuster movie, this one-of-a-kind 'villian' is portrayed by Sir Ben Kingsley, giving an outstanding performance in this wonderfully peculiar role. Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are happy to present The Mandarin Sixth Scale Collectible Figure, specially crafted based on the image of Sir Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin, highlighting a newly developed head sculpt, tailored costume with remarkable details, and accessories.

Our Take: The Iron Man franchise has taken the world by storm.  The third installment of the series finally gave us one of the coolest Iron Man comic book villains brought to life...the Mandarin!  There are few that make 1/6 scale figures to the level of quality and detail that Hot Toys does!   The fantastic quality begins with the outer box, which is covered in a cameouflauge deco.  When you open the package, you immediately get a colorful cardboard slip that tells you who worked on which aspect of the figure.  Kudos to Hot Toys for giving their artists the credit for their work, this is something that toy sculptors have fought for over the decades.   This is an amazing likeness of Sir Ben Kingsly.  I mean the sculpt is likelike.  The detail is amazing, down to the rings on his fingers.  He goes great in his stand, which has the Iron Man 3 logo on it and his name, or slumped in his chair looking all regal.  This is one of the most epic comic book villains of all time and this is most definately the definitive version of him!
