Today we are going to take a look at the soon to be released Comicave Studios Omni Class 1/12 Scale Iron Man MK 43. This figure is Hot Toys level detailing in Marvel Legends size, and it’s awesome. It pretty much addresses every collector’s wish list of features when talking about any given release – paint, sculpt, accessories, articulation, lights, action features – it’s all there. Is it really worth the price though? Read on to check over 90 HD images and our additional thoughts after the break!
Comicave Studios Omni Class 1/12 Scale Iron Man MK XLIII (43)
Highly detailed sculpt
Complicated and thorough paint applications
Glossy candy coat paint style
Bright LED lights in eyes and chest
Wide range of articulation
Flaps, ports move and open
Effect blasts are crisp and easy to use
Wide range of hands
DIE CAST, heavy
Hands are a little difficult to pop on/off due to full rotation of wrist (minor)
Shoulder pads limit upward arm posing without fiddling (minor)
Downward neck range limited (minor)
Wow. That’s pretty much sums it up. This thing is ultimate perfection for a 6 inch / 1/12 scale Iron Man. Die Cast. Paint to rival a modern sports car finish. LED lights. Articulation in every conceivable spot. Holds a pose. Accessories, multiple hands. Opening flaps for flight mode on legs and back. It’s just incredible. We’ve all seen fancy pretty Iron Man suits coming from Hot Toys and others, painted nice and featuring most of these things. But this is Marvel Legends size. You won’t need a separate room to build out a hall of armor. You can swap these in on your existing 6 inch scale shelves and make it work (tad smaller). You can really see the difference between this Omni Class figure and the what you get from a basic ML figure here (and more below).
Now, all that being said, there is a price to pay if you want this level of awesome. Marvel Legends are $20 bucks at retail now. The Comicave Studios Omni Class 1/12th scale MK 43 is $115. For a lot of us, the cost increase isn’t worth it. But for others, this upgrade is. Since I don’t go full on with Marvel Legends, having a center piece that shines is worth it. Do I want 50 armors like this – well if I had lotto scratch, yes. I do think a couple sprinkled in on a focus shelf is worth it though. It’s what we all think of when complaining about other releases, that it doesn’t have this, or that, or pop, or shine. Well this one does, top to bottom. So if you want that ultimate figure, this is it.
