Marvel Basic Series - IRONHEART!

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever - Basic Series 1 - Ironheart - Hasbro 2022

The new trend for the Hasbro basic series MCU figures to have elaborate action features is admittedly not my favorite thing. The figures from Thor: Love and Thunder (Mighty Thor at least) were awkwardly engineered with the action features having too much influence over the sculpt. But last week I walked into Target and saw this unexpected Ironheart Battle Action figure (only Namor, Shuri, and Attuma were in the advertisements), and I was pleasantly surprised at the overall design. Her action feature does not effect her overall appearance, which is a great start. When you squeeze Ironheart's left leg inward, her two cannons move from a back-mounted downward-pointing position, to a shoulder-mounted forward-facing position. It makes a lot of sense and is a fun feature that I fully support. The Shuri from the same wave has awkwardly positioned arms and seems wholly unappealing, but Ironheart is fun, simple, and displays well. Let's check out the Wakanda Forever Battle Action Ironheart below!

Here is a frontal shot of Riri with the cannons folded against her back and pointed down.

And here she is with the cannons flipped forward onto her shoulders pointing forward.

This figure essentially only has three points or articulation: two arms and her head. But that is not including the moving parts of her cannons or her left leg which can technically be positioned in different ways.

Here is the Basic Series Ironheart with her Marvel Legends figure (on the Left).

And with her two Titan Hero Series figures.

Here she is alongside the Basic Series Shuri from Wakanda Forever. 
(This is not the Shuri from the Battle Action line, rather the figure that comes with the Vibranium Blast Sunbird vehicle)

Here she is with the Basic Series Rescue from Avengers Endgame.
