We are big fans of Iron Man. We love Robert Downey Jr's charismatic superhero and can't wait to see Iron Man 3. So when we were sent a 15" Sonic Blasting Iron Man toy to review, everyone from 3 year old Freddy through to 44 year old daddy got very excited! Daddy has a self-confessed man-crush on RDJ so this toy was always going to appeal to him. Featuring a motorized rotating missile blaster, 5 fire missiles, 5 ice missiles, flashing eyes, Arc Reactor and authentic battle sounds it offers an all-action play experience for Iron Man fans of any age!
We were really impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of the toy: it feels very sturdy, stable and solid. Even when Freddy played hard, it withstood the rigours of being flown around the room and having fights with imaginary foe. The spinning sonic blaster shoots five missiles at a time at the touch of a button. It is very effective but isn't too ferocious which is a bonus, meaning we still have all ten projectiles intact and haven't lost any down the back of the sofa. The rotating action works really well and Freddy loved it! He also loved the button that made his eyes and chest light up. This really is a great toy for fans young and old which would look as good in a teen's bedroom as it would in a toybox. Everybody agreed that it was a real blast!!
Here is Freddy's demonstration of the Iron Man toy which has quickly become his favourite plaything... making daddy very proud indeed!
The toy takes three AA batteries that fit securely into a screw up compartment in Iron Man's back. It has an RRP of £29.99 and is available from good stockists including Amazon.
