Overall Review:

While i am happy to at last have a Superior Iron Man to add to my 3.75 collection, i am a little disapointed by the head sculpt on the figure. To me it just seems to be a tad to large for the figure. The body is a re-use from the Extremis Iron Man back from 2010 when the line was still call Marvel Universe. Below i have a comparison of the two figures 

Head seems to be a little big to me.

As for Machine Man, his lack of articulation is kind of a bummer, but at this point it is kinda what you would expect from the 3.75 inch line. A waist swivel and maybe some interchangeable hands for him would have been a nice touch

i really want to like this two pack but the lack of articulation and the fact that Iron Man's head is a little to big is really a draw back for me on this one

i give the two-pack a 5/10
