STEALTH ARMOR IRON MAN
Click on card for a bigger
The Low Observable, or Stealth, Armor, is used by Iron Man for covert
activities when "invisibility" is prudent. This sleek, jet black
suit is a polarized metal mesh armor that uses every bit of space for
detection and evasion components, and therefore was originally designed
with no weapons.
This armor is notable for a couple of reasons. One thing different about
this armor is that Toy Biz for some reason decided to put a little more
into the design by making this more of an interactive toy for kids. A
compartment on his back holds a cable system that lets Iron Man zip up
the string when the opposite end is pulled. The other interesting feature
is that this is the only sculpt that comes close to what many believe
is "the" Iron Man: the 1970s design. Why it was never reissued
as a repaint is a puzzler, and a loss for collectors.
