It's a fun figure - but wow that price tag since I have to buy the giant cannon I won't be displaying. That's an extra $20 for an oversize cannon I don't have use for and two extra heads. woof.

It may be a bit on the small side for his usual arsenal, but you can always arm Cable with it. :D

I ordered two. The cannon looks sort of small to me, but I was all in on a retro cartoon repaint of the Modular Iron Man and I'm so glad that the thing came with a mullet head and the cartoon helmet. Hopefully they can fan-channel a Mandarin on these cards sometime.

With all the fantastic photography I see from toy fans on social media, it's a shame the official shots sometimes still come out looking...well, like this:

That's the Iron Man I've always wanted.
Super disappointed that it's saddled with an extra large price tag because of the silly cannon I'll never display, and is on Pulse - which sucks to buy from in Canada.

I think the cannon is a fun addition. And the mouth-slit head is a great bonus. But man...that paywall. Hasbro has been doing a lot of "shady" stuff lately. Yes, they're out to make a profit. No arguments there. But stuff like this Iron Man for $45. And burying new classic Spider-Man and Daredevil figures inside premium-priced multipacks (twice for Spider-Man) is just...hmmm. I won't be upgrading (these) A-listers unless they pack them separately.

Hmm, maybe that big blaster could go to Smart Hulk.

Frustrating that you can only order 2. He comes with three heads. And it’s in cool retro packaging. I’d want to order more…

Testing the waters here, as lots of people are complaining about the cannon’s inclusion - are many of you planning to resell it? Much as the figure is pretty, I could probably get by with just the weapon, so I may hold off. Only UK seller I can see so far wants £65 for the set…

$45 for this or $100 plus shipping for Mafex? This seems like a great deal to me.

That's kind of where I am at. Especially since this armor matches up with this cannon in the first place. I honestly think this figure will get released on its own down the line. It's THE armor from the 90s TV series and this set already has the cannon in a separate box.

I wouldn't fret about skipping it for now y'all.

I didn’t think that would work. Excellent. Most excellent.
