"I purchased this after I had already purchased and built the Star Wars helmets hoping for the same quality. Much like other reviewers after this helmet sits next to the Star Wars helmets it definitely shows its lackluster appearance. Don't get me wrong though, on its own it makes for a great stand alone piece for an office or to hang out next to your Marvel gear. It may need a little bit of revamping down the road, you can see a pink brick from the side angle without too much effort and has a few gaps that are not very forgiving on the design. As for the gold bricks that are half painted I was lucky and put the kit together the correct way by accident, I also DIDN'T have any trouble putting the forehead piece on like a few other reviews stated. Overall its still a great build, possibly $10 too much compared to the Star Wars helmets and their price, fun to build. Maybe hold off until it gets a revamp many years down the road or buy it now if they just label this as Mark 1 and make more variations of the Iron Man helmets down the road."
