Want! Diamond Select Marvel Gallery Iron Man Retro Statue...

I wasn't that wild about Diamond Select's recent Marvel Gallery Spider-Man statue- the standing model with one foot dangling off the top of a pole. I was floored by this retro Iron Man spotted in TRU on Saturday however, with his metallic sheen and classic good looks! Not taking away from the 2008 modernization of the character for his silver screen debut, his is what pops into my head when I think of Iron Man. Sculpted by Mat Brouillard, this diorama measures approximately 11" tall, and the paint apps looked really good for the price of $39.99. I'm currently in the process of reorganizing and downsizing my collection, so I'm unsure I want to pick him up, but among these Diamond Select Gallery Statues, he'd be the one I get! I don't have a lot in the way of statues among my collection, but it's nice to see some below $50.00. See my Pinterest of Boyish Interest: Toys I Want page to see more of what I like!

Jada Nano Metalfigs Superman

While somewhat simple with regard to paint apps, these 1 3/4" Jada Nano Metalfigs are a reasonable value at just under one dollar. After picking up a Batman and a couple Guardians of the Galaxy figures from this line, I had to have this Superman, decorated in his DC Rebirth outfit! Check out the video:

This Nano Metalfigs Superman is not my most diminuitive Superman figure, an honor bestowed upon an even tinier Heroics Superman I received as a gift several years ago...
