I'm not keen on how they interpreted the classic helmet (I much prefer the indication of a nose bridge as found on the Koto, over the flat face plate), or any of the modern flourishes they incorporated.
Like the Captain America, I'd probably be able to sigh and look past those eventually, as the main impression of it is still mostly classic.

Base looks great, and seems to be a nice size/detail compromise between the extravagantly elaborate Thor and the minimalist Cap.

And if those aren't light ups, it's a truly fantastic paint job. Nice touch with the rose/copper around the helmets on the base.

Overall, much nicer than the impression I got pre-paint. Fortunately for me and my wallet, the Koto still fully scratches my itch for this character.
Art did clarify that the base has a light up feature. Also the extra torso seems to have a torso base as well.

One thing i noticed in the photos is that the switchout arms that is adjusting the ironman gloves seems more appropriate for the modern torso than the classic torso.

Likewise. The colours really pop.

It looks really good. Nice paint job. Huge difference compared to the unpainted statue in the previous photos. I still think the design is not classic enough though.
