If you saw Iron Man II, you saw a fine example of bureaucracy at work and others took over the design of the Iron Man system, Tony Stark developed one better with the Mark Six suit. Moebius Models has released the Mk.VI to follow up on the original and Mk.II suits. What's more, the kit provides the figure in an action pose versus the previous standing poses.
Molded in red styrene, the kit is presented on six parts trees plus one small tree of white parts for the energy lenses and vision lenses as well as a white display stand. The instructions are great for clear assembly steps as well as how to paint and finish this model. In fact, the only thing missing is a lighting system to bring the suit to life just like the movie suit as depicted in the box art. CultTVMan's Hobbyshop carries the lighting kits for the Iron Man figures if you're so inclined.
This is another outstanding kit from Moebius Models and whether you're a figure modeler, film buff, or wanting something different to build, this kit is just what you're looking for.

My sincere thanks to Moebius Models for this review sample!
