Hasbro Marvel Mighty Muggs! They’re cute, beautifully detailed with sharp paint apps and remind me of SouthPark for some reason. I haven’t been sucked into rabid MU MM collecting, but I picked up my first at SDCC in 2008 – the Mark III from the first Iron Man movie (more on that in a bit). So, I had to get one of the SDCC 2010 Mark VI figures from the sequel. (My wife loves it when I say I *have* to get something.) I figure they’ll make great bookends for my Iron Man TPBs.
SDCC 2010 IM2 Iron Man
The Iron Man 2 Mark VI Mighty Muggs has a retractable face plate so that you can see the lovable and quirky Tony Stark rendered in Mighty Muggs style. Doesn’t look much like RD Jr though.
He’s cute! Whadda ya want? They don’t do much except look cute!
As of writing this, the SDCC 2010 MM IM2 Iron Man is still available through HasbroToyShop.com. Get it before they gone!
SDCC 2008 Iron Man
So, there I was at the 2008 SDCC, in line at the Hasbro booth to get a Marvel Legends Savage Land Boxset. It was a long line. Lotsa Transformer and GI Joe fans. It was like being in line for a ride at Disney World except that there was a palpable anxiety coming from the Joe and Transformer fans that were scared Hasbro would sell out of those exclusives at any second. It was like being surrounded by several hundred skittish sheep nervously waiting to be shorn of their wool.
It seemed like it took forever to get to the counter. When I finally made it, I decided I owed it to myself to get something special considering the trials and tribulations I had just endured. So I got the MM Iron Man too.
Okay, I got nothing. Enjoy the pics.
