The red lines and text are all corrections!

The production team is generally the group that applies all these changes to the figure (or the manufacturing team in the case of mass production), but sometimes just like this, the planning head of the project will fix up some of the problems himself!

A file showing all the areas that need to be improved is drawn up, and slowly but surely the corrections are applied to improve the overall quality of the figure. Once all of the corrections are done, the unpainted prototype that you can see at the bottom left of this photo is created!
From ‘The Avengers’:
Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 7:
Hero’s Edition

From the worldwide hit film ‘The Avengers’ comes a fully articulated Nendoroid of Iron Man – the hero that industrialist billionaire Tony Stark becomes whenever he puts on his powerful armored suit. A number of booster effect parts are also included to easily pose him in combat or flying poses!!

The second Nendoroid from American films, following on from Nendoroid Spider-Man: Hero’s Edition!

I never thought we’d see such world famous heroes like these joining the Nendoroid series!
This is how he looks from the back!

Just like with Spider-Man, he also comes with a dioramic stand to display him flying above the city! You can even see the Stark Tower in the tiny little city!

The standard Nendoroid stand is also included, so you have the choice as to how you’d like to display him!
Posed with his arm thrusted out!

This is a pose that many Iron Man fans will be familiar with! He even comes with the opened out hand to complete the pose completely! Eno-kun was the leader of this project, and he insisted that this pose had to be included!
Pose him flying with effect parts!

He comes with jet effect parts for both of his hands, both his legs and even his back! There are also plans to include a special attachment to the arm of the stand that’ll allow you to support him nicely by his stomach for poses like this one!
You can even pose him in combat poses!

These jets used to fight his enemies are different to the ones that he uses to fly – when he is flying the jets are parallel to his the jets on his feet, but when he’s fighting with his arms out like this they’re parallel to the ground.

It’s amazing how cute the Nendoroid looks even though you can still place him in such cool looking poses!
The Edition series is fully articulated!

Whenever the name of the product has ‘Edition’ in it, you can assume that the figure is fully articulated and can be posed in an unbelievable number of ways!

Personally I love having the shoulders and knees as posable as they are on the edition Nendoroids – it really makes posing so much easier!
His mask can be opened and closed!

More than anything Tony Stark’s face is amazing! But the fact that you have the option to open up the mask is also great! :P

How exactly this is going to be implemented in mass production is still under consideration, but no matter how it comes out, I’m sure the fans will be pleased to have this option!
You can even switch expressions!

I think I might get into trouble if I play around with this too much… in fact I’ll probably get into trouble doing it with even this one expression. :P But it seems you can have your favorite characters try out the Iron Man suit!
These were the corrections at the start!

I think I might get into trouble if I show too much of these… in fact I’ll probably get into trouble showing just this image… but I decided they should be shown to the blog readers as a special feature!

As you might imagine, it’s actually much harder to change characters like Spider-Man or Iron Man into Nendoroids compared to the normal anime characters. There were actually lots of other corrections besides the ones you see here – most of the changes are to make it keep to the Nendoroid design without breaking the balance of how the character should look. Iron Man had a huge number of changes that went on for a really long time before he was ready for release.
These corrections are for the joints!

These were written up by Takanon, the head of production for the project. Iron Man is a fully articulated Nendoroid, so there had to be a number of corrections for both the apperance and the posability of the Nendoroid.

Certainly not an easy thing to balance out, but it seems like the team did a great job in the end!! (`・ω・´)
