2008-2009 has been a very good year for Hot Toys. They've been raking up all the top movie licenses and have been producing excellent figures from each franchise they acquire. Ironman is no exception. When Hot Toys first announced they were picking up the rights to the Ironman movie, every collector was excited me included. Then when we caught a glimps of the first prototype figure we went gaga! Cantik gile!

So when the figure finally hit our shores everyone was just racing to their respected toy stores to go and pick it up. It was indeed as well crafted as how the pictures were. Detailed and intricate, this figure was a work of art. Hot Toys really hit the ball out of the park with this one!

The only downside of the figure was the paint. Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about shabby paint job or blotchy paint. The coloration is just off. The hot rod red seemed more maroon than red and the yellow was dull and not the golden finish we saw in the movie. Pictures can be deceiving. So to compensate for that i decided to photoshop my Ironman and get the coloring just right. I love technology, hehe!
