Although Hot Toys did not capture the likeness of Robert Downey Jr. very well, I still consider it was a great head sculpt.
The paint application and skin texture of the facial sculpt were considered pretty good at that time.
Similar to Mark III Battle Damaged Ver., the figure comes with Tony's head in the helmet with a removable face plate.
The face plate is a separate piece which you can place it on top of the helmet.
On the other hand, the helmet has magnets which hold the face plate securely in place.
Final photo shoot of the figure with light up feature before I remove batteries from all battery compartments.
Take a closer look at the light up arc reactor in an acrylic display case.
For the pedestal with chest armor, you can place the alternate head on it for display. You may read my part 1 review here and part 2 review here.

Besides color scheme of the suit, the main difference between Mark III and Mark II is the sculpted rivets on the surface of the helmet, chest, arms and legs.
A closer view of the fully deployed air flaps at the back of the suit.
Open the panels at the back of the lower thigh to reveal the color wires and detailed pistons.
The silver suit looks metallic and matches very well with light up feature.
Although the articulation is not good, the figure still looks cool with basic poses.
My favorite weapons here are the missile launchers on the forearms. To reveal it, just pull apart the side panels and lift up the top panel on the forearm.
Due to the quality of the batteries, the light is only bright for less than 3 minutes. Then, it goes dimmer especially for the eyes and chest.
Overall, the figure has tight joints and it can stand without using a display base. You may click here to see its box art and design and read my next review here.

I love the box art and design for the first release of 1/6 scale Iron Man figures by Hot Toys.
Although the paint work on the head sculpt is not good, I can still feel the "sincerity" from Hot Toys to produce such high quality figures.
