Review: Sideshow Collectibles Exclusive Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Mark 36: Peacemaker Figure

Hot Toys Sideshow Iron Man Peacemaker - 20

Iron Man 3 featured a lot of different types of Iron Man suits that helped save the day against Killian and his Extremis group. Thanks to Sideshow Collectibles, we get to review one of the suits, the Mark 36: Peacemaker Hot Toys 1/6th scale figure (exclusive to Sideshow). Let me tell you, this thing is a beauty.

The Mark 36: Peacemaker figure is encased inside a box with a silver foil cardboard sleeve. It’s got the Sideshow Exclusive seal and contains a stylized design of the Peacemaker figure.

The packaging box itself keeps the figure safe, as it comes with protective foam and plastic holders. This is especially important when you’re investing almost $300 on the figure. If you have been collecting figures before, opening the packaging should be very familiar as you carefully remove it from its package.

The Iron Man 3 Mark 36: Peacemaker figure is a beast compared to the slimmer models worn by Tony Stark. It’s got big chest and shoulder pieces that scream out, “Don’t touch me, or I will blast you to pieces!” The orange paint (which looks more like a mix between red and orange here) gives off a shiny look, and the chipped-off scuff marks tell you that the suit has seen a lot of action. The good thing about it is that if you accidentally ruined the paint, it will probably enhance the look (but don’t do it).

The figure is pretty poseable, as you can bend the arms and legs and rotate the head, knees and feet. The armor pieces over the shoulder and thighs can slide, allowing you to move the legs and arms without chipping the paint. The figure comes with 3 pairs of hands, one pair having closed fists, one with open palms for repulsor beam blasting action, and fingers with articulation, giving you control of how the hands are posed.

The LED lights for the eyes, hands and arc reactor on the chest add to the aweomeness of the figure. It’s kinda tricky to put the batteries in the compartments (batteries are included), but once in be prepared to dim the lights for a cool mini-light show. To remove the panels holding the batteries, you’ll need a very small Phillips head screwdriver, which isn’t included. The compartments for holding the batteries are cleverly disguised. (That center armor piece seen below is removable so that you can inssert the batteries.)

For the head, it’s hidden in the back, and to gain access to the compartment, you must pop the head out of the body. The battery compartment to light the chest is located on the back. It’s hidden behind an armored piece that you can easily remove. The battery compartments for the hands are a little bit obvious, since they’re located on the forearm with visible screws. Since the figure has so many details and parts, it blends in well.

Owning a bunch of these Hot Toys Iron Man figures can be an expensive hobby, but if you start off with one, this is definitely recommended if you like the design of the Peacemaker. It’s a fine piece with a lot of options for posing with a lot of attention to detail and parts and LED lights that will sure to please any collector or Iron Man fan.
