[Acquisitions] Super Hero Squad Proto Armor Iron Man

When I attended last December's Christmas Toy Fair, I was hoping to fill a large number of holes in my Marvel Universe Avengers collection. My list of Toy Fair targets was very simple, it was composed of a lot of MUs, five Joes, and two Iron Man figs. At the end of the day, I realized that I had spent my entire budget for the event but only managed to get ten figures off my list. How did that happen? Well, since there weren't a lot of MUs during the event, I decided to buy other figs on impulse. Surprisingly, my impulse shopping purchases didn't include a single Joe, but it certainly included a lot of Iron Man and Iron Man-related toys, including this cute Super Hero Squad figure.

This super-deformed representation of Iron Man's Proto Armor is from the Iron Man 2 Super Hero Squad Armor Wars: Part II three-pack. This figure originally came with Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo but I was able to get this one loose without the two extra figs. I'm not sure why, but a ton of similar figs were available during the event for only 50 bucks (USD 1.10). It's as if somebody hoarded all of the Armor Wars: Part II three-packs just for the Titanium Man & Crimson Dynamo figs. I hate hoarders and scalpers but as long as they're selling the Iron Man figs individually for cheap, I'm not complaining.

This is already my 27th SHS Iron Man/War Machine fig but I'm still on the hunt for more. I think Hasbro released at least 61 versions of Iron Man/War Machine in SHS form and that means I've got a lot of catching up to do.


  1. it would be great if you would post your current ironman/warmachine armory (all scale) :)
