Sci-Fi Revoltech 024 Iron Man MK VI
The muchly anticipated Iron Man MK VI toy from Revoltech is here! From the 2010 live action movie “Iron Man 2” produced by Marvel Studios. This figure was purchased during the initial release in March, and has since been re-released due to popular demand! Check it out!

Iron Man comes in a standard issue Sci-Fi Revoltech box with a flip lid which is held shut with a Velcro tab. The cover art has the figure posed in his signature “landing position” which is really quite nice, looks like the real thing! Inside the box, Iron Man is held in by a few twisty ties, few enough for me not to complain about.
I really like the effect part accessories Iron Man comes with, it really adds a lot of value to the toy. There are two repulsor ray hand parts (which also fits on the feet), a flying mode effect part (articulated) which also acts as a display base, a name plate and a whole array of optional hands.
Kaiyodo has done a great job in capturing the design of the Iron Man MK VI suit. The lines are sharp and defined and the armour perfectly sculpted. I do think that the arms should be slightly shortened but it’s not far off. What’s really cool is there are actually flexible parts on this toy which helps movement, but look solid which I’ll show later.
Articulation is pretty good on this toy, everything has been designed to fold and bend nicely. In fact, the only thing I don’t like about the articulation of this toy is the joints, more specifically the Revoltech joints, ironically. The Revoltech joint ratchet spacing is too far apart and does not allow easy adjustment of position, would have been a nicer toy if it came with normal friction joints, at least in the legs.
Overall the paint is nice and glossy and evenly applied. The gold parts are finished in metallic as well as the gun metal parts. The eyes, chest and hand repulsor holes on the palms are painted in light blue. The hand repulsor effect parts have been painted with a light orange tip while the flying mode effect part has a darker “flame” effect.
As mentioned earlier, the Revoltech Iron Man uses soft PVC to aid in the articulation of some parts. The wrist armour plate is flexible, and the whole stomach piece is soft.
And finally, a shot comparing the Sci-Fi Revoltech Iron Man VI to Hasbro’s Walmart Exclusive Iron Man MK VI. Which one do you prefer?
This was a widely anticipated toy and the first batch released in March sold out within a few weeks. The second batch has now been released and there are plenty of them around. It’s a great toy, an awesome rendition of the Iron Man MK VI suit which will look great in any collection.
