I just picked up this amazingly articulated 1000toys RIOBOT The Iron Giant diecast figure. This roughly 7.25” figure is well made with the right balance of diecast metal and PVC. Almost every joint can be bent and turned, minus the fingers. But that is made up for with three sets of hands. Knowing their audience, 1000toys provided three heads with slightly different eye expressions. This figure also has option to change out his mouth to show his teeth. The “S” being a clip in an interesting solution but does miss out on having the chain around his neck. Watch the full unboxing and get a feel for the figure by clicking the video link below.
The Iron Giant is one of my favorite animated films. I have the Ultimate Iron Giant from Trendmasters still in the box and a very well played with Trendmasters Remote Control The Iron Giant, so well he’s missing an arm. As a huge fan, I regret not getting Mondo’s deluxe version but couldn’t get myself to spend the initial capital for a figure I want to take out of the box and enjoy with my kiddos. I definitely can’t get myself to pay what it’s going for on eBay. Wow, does this figure feel like an affordable second chance. It’s not too large for my desk at home and it’s pretty sturdy I feel comfortable letting my 10-year-old handle the figure. By the way, he’s a big The Iron Giant fan too (patting myself on the back).
