Marvel Legends Series 3.75 inch
Mechanical Masters two pack
Today we will be taking a look at the Mechanical Masters two pack, under the new Marvel Legends Series line, formally the Marvel Infinite Series. This two pack comes with Superior Iron Man and Machine Man.
The figures come packed in the new style Marvel Legends Series packaging, It has the comic displayed in the back with the figures at the bottom.
On the back of the package, It clearly displays both of the figures in this pack along with the other sets available in this new line.
The Figures come with NONE, the only thing you get in this pack along with the figures is the comic book. The issue it comes with is Superior Iron Man #1 with a special Secret Wars cover.
Iron Man and Machine Man stand just a little under 4.5 inches tall
The Articulation is almost the same on both figures
Heads are on a ball joint
Arms are on a hinge ball joint
Elbows are on a single hinge joint
Diaphragm swivel (Iron Man only)
Legs are on a ball joint
Upper calf movement (Iron Man only)
Double jointed knees
Ankles are on a hinge joint
Ankle pivot (Machine Man only)

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
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
