In case you haven’t heard yet, there’s a certain rad-looking film on the way by the name of Iron Man 3. It cost about as much to make as what we received in kickbacks for that positive Bioshock: Infinite review, and stars pretty people. But enough about them, because like any other high budget film, it also has…toys!
You know what film I was looking forward to watching last year? GI Joe Retaliation. But then it got delayed, because Hollywood wanted some more Tatum. Honestly, the whole film should be about Snake Eyes though. Because if he looks this cool at one-sixth his actual height, imagine how cool he is in the actual film. In 3D!
Dammit Hot Toys, there’s only room for one Lich King around here. And while I’ve been siphoning the health of the Lazygamer crew to keep myself rejuvenated, you had to upstage me by actually shrinking down people. That might just explain this action figure at least, as the Agent Coulson figure that they’ll be releasing is a tad too realistic for my liking.
Iron Man toys are a dime a dozen. I can’t even walk into a Pick n Pay these days without seeing a certain armoured avenger and his Movember face. But a toy based on the villainous Obadiah Stane and his armoured getup from the first film? That’s rarer than the word “compound” on a SABC news report. But finally, for anyone who has always wanted to own a big Lebowski action figure, that was bald and smothered in armour, here it is!
