Created in 1963 by a group of comic book luminaries (including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby), Tony Stark was a rich playboy whose capture during the Cold War led him to create a technologically advanced powered armor suit bristling with weapons and science-fiction gadgets. Best known for fighting enemies such as Mandarin and Crimson Dynamo, Stark would over the years combat his own personal demons as well, making him a very nuanced and interesting character popular the world over. While he would continue to improve and upgrade his armors, the brilliant industrialist/hero would also help found the premiere Marvel superhero group which inspires his latest appearance: Iron Man Classic Avengers!
Coinciding with the upcoming Avengers film in 2012, this series celebrates the classic versions of some of Marvelís greatest heroes.
Wearing his classic red and gold armor, Iron Man fights alongside his fellow Avengers to defend the Earth and humanity. Standing on uneven terrain Stark lunges to his left with his arm outstretched to unleash a powerful Repulsor Ray blast at his unseen enemies. The technological wonder of the Iron Man armor is intricately sculpted with all of the classic components you know and love from the stoic faceplate to the circular generator on his chest, distinctive hip pods, and the bands on his extremities. The suitís armored chest piece ripples with muscles, while its upper arms and legs conform to Starkís athletic physique. Iron Manís paint scheme is resplendent in metallic red and gold, and it really stands out when displayed next to the other Classic Avengers.
Included with the statue are two heads so you can display your Iron Man with his helmet on or bare-headed to reveal the determined visage of Tony Stark.
Sculpted by Kotobukiya master artist Erick Sosa, the Classic Avengers Iron Man stands nearly 14Ē tall (1/6 scale). His rocky terrain base matches those on the other Classic Avengers, the previously released Thor and Captain America! Collect your Classic Avengers team just in time for the film!
