LEGO Marvel Game Exclusive 30168: Iron Patriot and Gun Mounting System Review.

Firstly I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to my best mate Ty and his work colleague and mentor Kylie for chasing down the 2 promo items that came with the Marvel LEGO Game. I had arranged for my mate Ty to Pre order the game x2 back when it was first announced. This past week it was released here in Australia and EB Games had the exclusive Iron Patriot Minifigure promo. His work colleague Kylie was tasked to pick one of the games up, and there seemed to be a rather large mix up on EB Games' behalf and gave her the Loki Keyring instead of the Iron Patriot Minifigure. Kylie knew instantly that this was wrong and asked the question, 'where is the Iron Patriot Minifigure?' After some babble about it being only available for the first week of pre orders, (which we did do! I  might add) Some how with her magic she ended up getting the keyring without having to buy the game... Score! 
Now luckily Ty had pre ordered the second game at a different store the same day as the one mentioned above and was able to secure me, my Iron Patriot Minifig. Yesterday I received all three items. Today we will have a closer look at the Minifigure!

Note: All photo's can be clicked on for a larger view.

Here we have all three items. But we are just going to have a look at Iron Patriot.

You have most likely seen this image a thousand times by now, here it is anyway.  

A look at the back. 

All the pieces to build Iron Patriot are loose in the polybag. Except for the helmet which I believe is produced in China, hence the little plastic bag.

All the pieces lined up. 22 pieces all up. Some will be spares

A quick look at the instructions. Yep it pretty straight forward. 

The Iron Patriot Minifigure has the same printing as his War Machine suit, only its a change in the color scheme. He has a printed torso both front and back. a double sided face print and printing on the legs and helmet.

A close up of the gun mounting system.

All done! front view.

Back view.

The spare parts. Enough to make a second shoulder gun.

This is a great Minifigure! One that is needed to to complete the collection Iron Man suits. A bit of a let down that it is only available with the game and that it was limited in numbers. In a way it would have been nice to have it be available in the DVD/BD release like they have done with the Hobbit film and a few of the Star Wars and Batman Lego films. They are a bit pricey to buy on ebay and Bricklink but if you really want it and need it to complete your collection I would say... get it before it goes up to even more insane prices.

Thank you again to the CFS team. You rock!

Thanks again for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review!

As always and if you want too, let us know in the comments below, what you think of the set. I would love to hear others opinions on it.

Until next time this is Tan Tile...
