A Look Back at the Gentle Giant Avengers Iron Man Deluxe Mini-BustJanuary 21, 2015
Despite its diminutive proportions, Gentle Giant Ltd.s marvelously crafted Avengers Iron Man Deluxe Mini-Bust manages to distinguish itself as a magnificent showpiece within a vast field flourishing with larger and pricier collectibles.
Cast in weighty polystone, Gentle Giants Avengers Iron Man Deluxe Mini-Bust features a movie-accurate, waist-up depiction of the Mark VII armor as it appeared during the climax of 2012s The Avengers. Discerning Marvel aficionados will appreciate the degree to which Gentle Giants artists have recreated the metallic contours and rich crimson, gold, and grey luster of the Mark VII in exhaustive detail.
Beyond the authentic fascia, Gentle Giants 7.5-inch tall Avengers Iron Man Deluxe Mini-Bust makes good on its sumptuous title with the inclusion of a (two AAA) battery-powered light-up function. A switch in the base of the statue allows users the option of displaying the piece with the chest piece and hand repulsors illuminated.
With a production run of only 1,650 pieces, the cost of Gentle Giants Avengers Iron Man Deluxe Mini-Bust has risen well above the original retail price of roughly $70 USD from 2013 and made finding one of the individually-numbered collectibles a challenging endeavor. For the relentless statue buffs determined to get their hands on this small but striking Marvel superhero showpiece; the authentic sculpture, painted finish, and luminous display options make it a worthy acquisition.
