Hot Toys Tony Stark Updated Face Sculpt

Anyone who frequents Hot Toys Facebook page will know that the crowd there contains a large group of people who criticise anything and everything and seem impossible to please. You can therefore forgive Hot Toys for rarely showing much interest in what is said, you can't please all of the people all of the time. Or as more often seems to be the case, you can't please some of the people any of the time.

However, Hot Toys have responded to quite a bit of negative feedback regarding the prototype for the Tony Stark figure from Iron Man 3. We highlighted our concerns when the figure was announced as it didn't meet their usual high standards and just looked a bit like Robert Downey Jr, rather than a spitting image.

It's therefore pleasing to see that they have acknowledged that maybe this one needed some work and have now issued some images of their updated face sculpt and this one is much more like it. It's difficult to see exactly what they've changed but the likeness is now definitely there and it looks exactly like it should. The face appears less long and rounder in the newer image and the eyes are noticeably wider.

Check out the before and after shots below and see what you think.

Of course there are still the impossible to please bunch on the facebook site who still aren't happy, but to be honest, you could post a picture of Robert Downey Jr and tell them it was the new face sculpt and they'd still tell you it was wrong. The rest of us should be happy now!

Maybe this means they will update the latest George Michael Barney Ross figure which we weren't too impressed with either.
