Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Mark XXVI Gamma Armor Sixth Scale Figure Review

Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Mark XXVI Gamma Armor Sixth Scale Figure 07

 

Hot Toys released their Iron Man Mark XXVI – Gamma Armor Sixth Scale Figure based on the Iron Man 3 film from 2013. In the film, Iron Man unleashed his entire Hall of Armor to battle the army of drones. The Gamma Armor suit was among the many different suits that were controlled by Jarvis to aid Tony and War Machine.

This particular suit has the ability to resist extreme temperatures and devastating electrical surges, and the suit gains its nickname “Gamma” for the ability to withstand Gamma Radiation (which created the Hulk).

Thank you to Sideshow Collectibles for providing the Hot Toys Iron Man Mark XXVI – Gamma Armor Sixth Scale Figure for review. This figure can be ordered right now as in stock.

Availability: February 2016

The Mark XXVI – Gamma Armor suit stands just over 13″ tall and features LED light-up functions (eyes, chest, and hands), spring-loaded Pneumatic Hammers, more than 30 points of articulation (basically everything you would expect from Hot Toys), and includes a Hall of Armor figure base with a flexible pillar.

The LED light-up functions can be activated by removing components of the armor (top of the head, a piece of the wrists, and a piece of the back) as shown in the instructions, unscrew, and install the batteries (included). Once installed, flip on the “on” switch and put the armor component back on. The light will stay on until you remove the component and flip of the “off” switch. It is also recommended in the instructions to replace the batteries often, or leakage can occur, which would cause damage to the figure.

The armor can be extended at the waist by pulling on the upper body, which can now be moved within 45 degrees. The hips and shoulders can also be extended, which also expands their range of motion. On his back, there are two components that open to reveal jetpacks, which gives him the ability to fly into battle. His feet also have the jets, and there are also flaps on the front of the ankle.

The Pneumatic Hammers can also be removed by pulling them off (carefully), and you are left with his arms being more exposed. What you might not have noticed, was that his fingers are articulated in three places, which makes them realistic. There are also the light up feature in the palm of his hands, which can also fire lasers.

The instructions have plenty of warning signs including the armor parts may collide at the arms when being moved, which can lead to paint fading. The palms are non-articulated, the pillar is not meant to be bent or use excessive force, and the battery component at the bottom of the base is not meant to be opened, as this part cannot light-up.

The figure is painted with a dark green, gray, and silver with weather effects. The paint is fragile and can lead to fading in the shoulder area, so be extra careful.

Overall:

Hot Toys has once again offered an incredibly detailed Sixth Scale Figure and the move likeness, attention to detail, and deco on him is incredible.

Recommended for adult collectors.
