This is the removable face plate that given as an accessory. As you can see, great detailing on the inside of the face plate. But, the scratches on the other side of the face plate are colour painted. They look unrealistic and this is the minus point here.
As the neck section can be removed from the main body, you can turn the helmet and neck individually.
Remove the chest plate, you can see the metal-like painted mechanism and his micro ARC reactor. Those gears and servos are finely sculpted with excellent paint job. A nice touch!!
You can put the face plate on top of the helmet to show Tony Stark face as it is held in place by magnets. As I didn't get the previous Mark II figure, the facial sculpt is "new" to me. As usual, the paint work and skin texture of the facial sculpt are good.
I am also impressed the removable face plate fits perfectly to the helmet. Another plus point given to Hot Toys :P
The right forearm has some amazing features as well. First, you have the opening panel to expose the mini rocket launcher. Second, you can open the side panels to expose the fine detailing gadget that acts as a "shield" to the armoured figure.
Additional pictures taken on the figure without light on features.
The armoured figure looks very cool when posing him with the nicely produced display base.
The body armour including the undamaged or clean chest plate look very convincing as they have painted scrapes here and there. The joint articulation works pretty well which allows the figure to hold some great poses. Overall, I am very pleased with the figure except for the painted scratches on the face plate. If you didn't get the earlier Mark III figure, this is the one worth for your collection. You may also read my part 1 review here and part 2 review here.
