Well one of the worst parts of the Iron Man/Mandarin Face Offs is the fact that they do not look in scale with the rest of the Marvel Legends. Iron Man looks tiny compared to all the other Iron Men, whether or not you try to make the argument that his armour is slimmer. He just looks more 5 1/2" scale than 6". And Mandarin has this stiff rubber gown that prevents him from doing anything with his arms other than having it extended all the time. You'd think that Toy Biz would've had both tons of experience and also other existing sculpts they could base the Mandarin off, from having made all these Lord of the Rings figures. But no, they went for an inferior rubber robe. I was looking forward to this set, but now I think I'll just get Sabretooth.
