Hey guy, could this be the Iron Man minifig from the Malibu Mansion Attack 76007?

Hmm, with all the focus on the chest area this could be Heartbreaker, but that's in the smallest set iirc and not Mansion attack. The trailer shows him in the Mark XLII which is the predominantly gold one. This doesn't look like that.

Edit: Although... maybe it's just that the chest part has been removed, if that was different I think it could be the 42.

From lego-minifigures.tumblr.com (not an official tumblr afaik)

Dunno if this has been posted but I thought I'd put it on here since it has the Mk XLII. Nice to see them all together, really wish War Machine was black instead of grey though. Or at least a darker shade of grey. According to Brickipedia the mk XLII is going to appear in the Malibu Mansion set and the Extremis Sea Port set, which kind of leaves the OP's Iron Man as therefore being Heartbreaker.

I really like the helmet design, controversial as it is :P. I don't think it could've been any smaller and I think plain printed heads just look wrong for helmets. Cap's is borderline since it was a very form fitting helmet and it was a skintight hood in the comics.

I concur with BBB regarding an Iron Patriot though. I think this War Machine is too dull looking, (and he better not be bereft of a backpack/shoulder gun)

I don't think the size makes it look bad, I think it's the excessive amounts of details that makes it look badly oversized.

I really like the idea of having the different armors for the hall of armor idea... Fingers crossed for Iron Patriot

No sir, don't like the helmets, don't like em.

And while I prefer the printed ones, it's only because I dislike the bobble head ones so much. I think a smaller helmet would have been much better.

What LEGO should have done is just make a custom mold for the helmet without a head fitting inside. That way it could be slightly bigger than a head and not look so ridiculous.

I wonder if they might have been able to make a helmet that DID fit over a head without being too bobble-heady if they hadn't insisted on incorporating the opening face plate. Maybe not. To my mind, the biggest problem isn't actually the size of the helmet per se, but rather the fact that the helmet has a face on it that is WAAAY bigger than a usual minifigure face. So basically, instead of just looking like a big helmet, like so many other LEGO helmets do, it looks like a big HEAD, which is freaky. I actually think it looks pretty good with the faceplate OPEN, so I'm not seeing that huge face.

All IMHO, of course.

I can't wait to get them all! I wish they had a "battle damaged" version, with smoke or small dents. What do you guys think about the silver highlight on the chin?
