Silver Centurian Iron Man & Crimson Dynamo
I've been considering getting this set for a while now. I don't give a crap about the Silver Centurian Iron Man. They've already made a minimate of him and they're pretty much identical for all intents and purposes. I think this one is a little shinier. But the Crimson Dynamo is new, and there aren't really that many minimates of Iron Man villains, although that could just be because there aren't that many iconic Iron Man villains. You get the same problem with Thor. But I also don't read Iron Man, I prefer him in team books, so this set was never a big deal to me.
Until I saw what they did for the face under the helmet.
That's right, take off the dude's helmet and it's Joseph Stalin! Or at least a Russian villain during the Cold War that looks like Stalin, because you know, comic books. This would be like if they had an alternate Red Skull face and BAM, Hitler.
I love minimates of real historical figures. So I had to get this... when it was on sale... which it finally was.
