Marvel Legends - IRONHEART!

Marvel Legends - Black Panther: Wakanda Forever - Ironheart - Hasbro 2022

Riri Williams has had a lot of interesting armor configurations since her debut in 2016. Her first was a bulky suit made from pieces of Iron Man's armor that she scavenged and reverse engineered. When Pepper Potts insisted that her genius (and heroics) be acknowledged, she quickly acquired the resources to upgrade to a sleek classic-looking "Iron Man" suit (this was my favorite iteration so far). After a few years she got a redesign into a pink/magenta suit with a subtle heart motif and a clear visor. This wasn't my favorite look, but it was very original (not derivative of Tony's look) and the stories were still great. When her solo series ended, I lost track of her development. But now her upcoming appearance in Wakanda Forever has me energized to fill in the gaps. This cinematic design looks like a great blend of the two main comic looks. I love that she's starting off with a unique design, easily distinguishable from Tony and Pepper. Let's check out Ironheart below!

Riri comes with a lot of accessories: Both a helmeted and unhelmeted head, two sets of hands, forearm guns, a forearm cannon (which requires the removal of a hand to wear), a silver tube which connects that cannon to her back, two "jet pack wings", two blue energy pieces that clip to the thrusters of her jet pack wings, two blue energy blasts, and two gray smoke effect pieces that can be mounted around the energy blast effects.

My Riri head has a noticeable glob of black paint on her right cheekbone.

And here is Ironheart all suited up.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Ironheart with the two other Wakanda Forever ladies (so far), Nakia and Okoye.

And here is Ironheart with her two different Marvel Titan Hero Series figures.



  1. Not into Marvel, the MCU, Disney, any of those other Hollywood grooming factories... but I'll probably get this, just because it's the closest thing to an inexpensive "Knight Saber" from "Bubblegum Crisis". A different anime head... some recoloring...

    1. My first expensive toy purchase was the four Knight Saber figures back in the early 2000s. I was obsessed with getting them but was on a tight budget. But once I had them, I was very underwhelmed. They weren't as poseable as I expected, their joints seemed fragile/loose, and they didn't stand well. I ended up selling them a few months later. Sometimes I regret it, but I honestly feel some company will make new figures of them someday.
