Thomas becomes a target of the “Ten Rings” as he reviews the Iron Man 3 Marvel Legends Triple Pack

An iconic trio from a major installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man 3, gets the Marvel Legends Series treatment with the Legends Series Marvel Studio The First Ten Years Iron Man 3 3-pack, inspired by the third movie in the Iron Man trilogy.

For Pepper Potts, they chose her outfit from the final battle, it’s not exactly the outfit I would have chosen as it’s really simple. The outfit she wears when Tony’s mansion is attacked would have been my preferred choice! Anyway, in terms of screen accuracy, it’s good, it wasn’t difficult. The skin tone is nice along with the paint apps. For the head sculpt, it’s not perfect but it’s good nevertheless, you can definitely see Gwyneth Paltrow in it. The digital print tech is great as always.

Pepper comes with an interchangeable arm on which she has a part of an Iron Man armor with a shooting effect. She has 19 points of articulation with the normal arm and 20 POA with the Iron Man arm.

The Mandarin has a screen accurate outfit with beautiful details on it, they even sculpted all the rings on the fingers! The gold paint they used on it is excellent, the paint apps are on the S.H. Figuarts level! The figure has 18 points of articulation. As for the head sculpt and the digital print tech, it is the best I have seen on a Hasbro figure, I have never seen a better likeness, it is literally Ben Kingsley, simply perfect!

Iron Man Mark XXII is only seen for a few seconds in the movie but he gets to have his figure, I never say no to an Iron Man figure! The paint app is nice, I love the flame design on the boots, it’s beautiful!

The figure has 23 points of articulation. It comes with zero accessories, not even shooting or repulsor effects, for that I’m disappointed all the more since it’s an Iron Man figure!

Final Thoughts:

This 3-pack is an excellent one, you get three amazing figures including one that has the best head sculpt that Hasbro has ever done!
