FanHome – Iron Man Partwork Build Up Model Subscription Box #2 Review



Fanhome is offering a new subscription box consisting of an Iron Man Partwork Build Up Model that is made of both metal and high-quality ABS. Iron Man comes in pieces in each box, and you need to put each piece together to create this 24″ collectible figure. Iron Man Mark III armor features LED lights on the reactor, hand repulsors, boot thrusters and mask visor, and the figure is loaded with articulation and detail.

The subscription starts at the introductory price of $1.00 USD, and each part of Iron Man you build comes with its own magazine that features instructions for assembly, and explores both Marvel films and comic books through the character’s history.

Thank you to FanHome for providing their Iron Man Partwork Build Up Model Subscription Box #2 for review. 

Availability: 2021

The subscription box is a standard shipping box, with purple and brown, with the FanHome logo in the front. Inside, is everything included, including two magazines, the packaging for the helmet and left foot, four batteries, a poster and multiple brochures. The video above showcases the interiors of the brochures, and gives an in-depth look of the magazines along with the step by step instructions of the building process.

This box includes 4 issues, 3, 4, 5, and 6 and focuses on three different parts to build Iron Man, including the right hand, The Arc ReActor, and right elbow joint. Each magazine has different articles related to Iron Man throughout the pages of Marvel Comics, along with different poses of Iron Man on the cover, and a look at different comic books on the back and inside.

Watch the video above for a closer look at the assembly instructions and articles in each magazine.

Issue 3 focuses on the assembly of the right hand, which is also the most difficult part to build in this box. Each figure has three hinged joints, while the thumb is ball jointed with a hinge joint. It also has a LED light with a battery pack that needs to be assembled inside the hand. The instructions are fairly clear on where everything goes, but the tricky part is where to place the button to turn the LED light on and off, which actually goes underneath the battery pack as it’s hidden between the hand and battery. The LED light works for the palm of the hand, as seen in the comics.

Issue 4 focuses on the Arc ReActor, which has fewer parts than the hand and easier to assemble. This also features a LED light and a battery pack is connected to this as well.

Issues 5 and 6 focuses on the right elbow joint, with issue 5 starting it out, and issue 6 completing the assembly with connecting the two halves, and screwing it into place.

Overall, the quality and detail on this is amazing, and once put completely together this figure is going to look amazing! Fans are surely in for a treat with the subscription, and the inclusion of free gifts as shown in the brochures, and fun magazines makes this an easy decision to start a subscription. My recommendation would be to subscribe, and sets like this have been extremely popular to do during quarantine.
