Hot Toys Tony Stark The Mechanic Sixth Scale Figure Review
The figures comes with a ton of great accessories, but the thing that really got me down was he has too few hands to actually use them. Paint and sculpt are good, but not up to the usual Hot Toy standard of excellence. If you are looking to add a Tony Stark to you collection, you might be better off with a different version of him.
Order From Big Bad Toy Store:
Iron Man 3. It’s a movie that some people loved, but I’m sure that a lot of people didn’t really love it so much. I sit on the side of the fence with the people who didn’t really like the movie, but I really do like the collectibles based on it.
Today we are going to be taking a look at another one of Hot Toys toy fair exclusives, the Hot Toys Tony Stark The Mechanic sixth scale figure.
Tony Stark comes packaged in a very basic shoebox style box that we have seen before from Hot Toys.
There is a nice image of the character on the front with plenty text that reads ‘Iron Man 3 Tony Stark The Mechanic’.
You may also notice the Sideshow Exclusive sticker because that is the version that I am reviewing for you.
Once you get inside the box the figure lays there on one single tray with all of his accessories. He comes with 8 interchangeable hands, a Mac-10, a nail gun, a stun gun, a headset, a watch, a backpack, a newspaper, a clamp, a dart on a wire, a container with a syringe, a figure stand, and the Sideshow Exclusive wrist repulsor.
The accessories were all very cool, but I did have a bit of a problem finding the right hand for each accessory. It seems like Hot Toys didn’t include enough hand poses to correctly use the accessories. You might notice in some of the images that the hand doesn’t quite look right and that’s because it doesn’t.
As always, the paint on the head sculpt is nearly perfect, but not quite. On the hairline on his forehead you can see that his hair wasn’t fully painted, which is really noticeable. I’m sure that I just got unlucky and got a figure with a bad paint job, but it’s still there.
With ‘The Mechanic’ we are getting our first unsuited battle damaged Tony Stark. I’m really not too fond of the sculpting this time around though. If you look closely you might notice that something is wrong. I really notice it around his bloody eye. Something is off which makes him look half way like a zombie.
I have come across quite a few reviews for the Hot Toys Tony Stark The Mechanic sixth scale figure and everyone seems to love him. I can’t really say that I loved him as much as everyone else. Sure he comes with a ton of great accessories, but the thing that really got me down was too few hands to actually use them.
With Hot Toys I almost always expect perfect paint and sculpting, but again that is really lacking from this figure. If you are looking to add a Tony Stark to you collection, you might be better off with a different version of him.
