I am...

Iron Man!! Ok, not really…Tony Starks is Iron Man, and we’re nothing alike…he’s an athletic playboy, incredibly wealthy, genius inventor with an addiction to the bottle. Oh well, one out of six ain't bad. I may not be Iron Man, but I am a geek male…we’re talking thousands of comic books stored out of direct sunlight in cool conditions with cardboard backing in plastic bags kind of geek - and the midnight preview showing of any comic book character who manages to hit the big screen kind of geek too!! Which of course has its lows…*cough* Elektra* cough* and its highs…hopefully, Iron Man, sometime tomorrow evening?? Either way, when Dove and I wandered into the Boxed Heroes store, it was a given I was going to get suited up to play.

The store has a bunch of film and comic heroes and villains to choose from. As tempted as I was by Ghostbusters Stay Puft Marshmallow man, my heart already belonged to this Iron Man suit - fearsome looking, yet smooth, supple, sleek and full of gadgets, it was screaming out to both my inner and outer geek!! For 400L you get three different versions of the suit, the classic red/gold, black/red and my favorite, the black/gold combinations, all equipped with an Iron Man AO. It comes with damage dealing repulsors in the hands and of course, a circular chestbeam with an emergency light beam spotlight!! Although the armored suit comes with a built in flight assistant, be warned that if you’ve been around me in voice when I'm wearing it, the sounds you hear do not come with the suit!! I know it may be hard to believe, but those amazing sonic booms and roars and thunders you heard were coming from your's truly. After I unboxed my new toy at home, was I disappointed?? Well, if a picture is worth a thousand words, here's 80,000 words worth of praise….I'll meet you in the sky!!

PS, just to confirm it, that disturbance you felt in the force at approximately 10 am SLT was the after effects of my sister adding another unit to the Lawless collective. That’s one step closer to world dominance, if you're keeping track at home (insert evil laugh here)!!
