The TITANIUM MAN is built to destroy IRON MAN! The technology used to construct this armor is not as advanced as the IRON MAN MARK III, but concussion blasters mounted in the arms and a titanium outer shell makes it a serious threat.
Titanium Man has a new sculpt from the video game. The sculpt is good, but heís a little under scaled for 6Ē figures. The figure is shorter than movie Iron Man, so for the person to be 6Ē scaled the armor needs to be bigger. The armor does have a bulkier look than the movie Iron Man though, so it looks more realistic that a person could fit inside it. The colors are generally good. Some opaque green plastic would have looked better than the light green, because in the video game these areas are glowing. The green looks good with the dark grey, which is supposed to be like the color of titanium. There are a lot of areas of plain grey, so it is all the sculpt detail that makes this figures appearance work well. There are many grooves and panels on the entire figure to give him a mechanical feel and a look of less sophistication than Iron Man.
The proportions are good, and the joints are not obvious at all because of all the connecting pieces of the armor. The style generally fits in ok with Marvel Legends, although a comic Titanium Man would still be my preference. There are no paint problems on the figure. Overall, I donít think he looks that impressive, but thereís nothing wrong with him either. The oddest thing about him is the shape of the eyes, but in general he looks good with the many armors of Iron Man.
There are double pin joints in the elbows and knees. The head, torso, wrists, and waist are ball jointed. As expected the armor limits the range of motion in several places. The head moves up and down hardly at all, but can move side to side. The torso can bend back far, but can only bend forward into the upright position. The arms can move out from his body about 45 degrees. The ball joints in the waist work very well, but canít quite move up perpendicular from his body. The feet canít move much in the armor.
Titanium Manís limiting factor is his range of motion. It is hard for him to do some more dynamic poses, but he looks good fighting movie Iron Man. Improved ankle articulation would provide the most help. Titanium Man has adequate balance, and looks good on the shelf with other Iron Man figures. Heíll probably go best next to Iron Monger or Iron Man, but probably needs some kind of armored figure standing next to him for the best look on the shelf.
Final Judgment: 6
Titanium Man is a good figure for an Iron Man enemy. While not comic accurate, he does have the appearance of a villain and the look of being a copy of the more sophisticated Iron Man. Overall heís a good buy because of the lack of Iron Man villains, and looks good in his own right. I donít consider him a must have figure though.
