I'd like to clarify: I've always regarded this red and yellow version of the armor as "Classic," while I called the silver tin can original version "First Appearance." After checking and double checking, I realize that this is correct as far as I know. I just wanted to point this out because lots of fans use "Classic" to describe "First Appearance."
Why is this guy called "Classic," you ask? Well, I think it's because he wore this armor the longest (almost 50 years?) and upgraded it many times without changing the look. Yes, boys and girls, this was before every upgrade got a different look, Hence "Classic."
Well, this will be my 6th review of the Iron Man 2 3.75 inch movie line and I have to say I've enjoyed doing all of them because the toys have been so solid. But how does the Classic look and armor match up to the new-fangled sleek and sexy of the current century's Tony Stark? Well, hop on over to Articulated Discussions to find out! ;)
