How. Cool. Is. This... !?

Nice-! You're right- it is like a scaled-down Destroid from "Macross", or a light-class [20-35 ton] BattleMech from the BattleTech RPG/video game saga.
.
I like the various spring-loaded features- in particular how different they are from each other. (I just love toy rapid-fire missile launchers!) I don't think it'll bother me too much if the knees don't pose, so long as the hips and ankles can sufficiently snap to different angles.
.
The "Sigma 6" Dragonhawk V-TOL aircraft reviewed earlier on CDX was jaw-dropping, but this is awesome too! And I like how the aircraft can carry and drop the Iron Hammer right into the battlefield, as opposed to just strapping a pair of "rocket" or turbofan engines to the back of it.
.
And all this for $9.99!? I am so gonna get one my next trip to a TRU, and it'll fit into the little spot left on my shelves too!
.
Didn't make 'em like this when I was a kid, either... (Am I old enough to start saying that now???)

Re: How. Cool. Is. This... !?

True to my word, first chance I got, I got me an Iron Hammer. This thing is truely awesome for the price...! The limited ball-&-socket joints in the hips and ankles weren't as bad as I thought they were at first. They're limited swinging outwards, but work good enough forward-&-backwards.
.
In fact, my biggest complaints would be how tricky it was to put those vent decals on the 'calves' of the lower legs. The shoulder joints, especially on the grabing and missile-launcher arms, are really difficult to snap on and off! Sheesh!
.
(I also left Snake Eyes in the box. Hee hee hee...)
.
What surprised me most was how much smaller the "Sigma 6" figures are compared to the earlier American counterparts. That probably allowed for the more versatile sets. I recal how it was just blocky vehicles with pop-out weapons and simple single-round missile launchers originally, but now we have fully interactive vehicles like the Iron Hammer where you can swap the different weapons.
.
Next step: the Dragonhawk!
