Iron Man is currently one of the most popular of the Marvel superhero line. This is in large part due to the upcoming Avengers movie in the previous two Iron Man movies released by Marvel Studios. There are two reasons why Iron Man may be so popular these days with both children and adults.
The first reason behind Iron Man’s popularity is simply a wonderful portrayal by Robert Downey Jr. who plays the role of Tony Stark, the secret identity of Iron Man with incredible skill. But another reason for the popularity of this metallic superhero is simply the butt kicking nature of the action of the Iron Man.
The second reason leads to why the Iron Man action figures are such a popular toy for Marvel. Both kids and “fan-boy”collectors simply love the Iron Man.

Marvel Diamond Select action figures are the premiere maker of action figures for the Marvel universe of comic book characters in general, and of Avengers action figures specifically.
The guys at Marvel Diamond select do not just slap together these action figures, “willy nilly” but take time and craftsmanship to really create small works of art that can be enjoyed by fans and collectors alike. All of the Marvel Diamond select action figures are created with car. Most of them have many moving parts, generally between 10-18 telescoping joints and moving pieces. Sometimes with additional detachable “weapons” depending on the character.
These action figures also look wonderful, as you can plainly see from the Thor action figure made by Diamond select that is linked above. Just look at the detail!!! Each and every action figure is based on the work of acclaimed sculptures and artists, so they are literally small pieces of art designed as toys. Read the rest of this entry
