Disclaimer: Hasbro was kind enough to send me a box of toys from The Avengers Age of Ultron toy line to play with and review! The opinions in this review are mine and my sons’.
Next up in the box of goodies was the Iron Man Mask.
Here’s the description from Hasbro’s site:

I mean, who doesn’t like being Iron Man?
The biggest complaint about the older masks was that the visor didn’t come up. Which meant that the boys had to pull the entire mask up which meant it was ungainly and it would plop back down over their face. When this one came out, the boys were enamored with it being openable. Mostly because after running around for awhile, my son could get a drink without having to take the entire mask off. And it made him feel more like Tony Stark.
Can’t argue with that logic!
Now, the mask functions well, but the visor does pop up on occasion. From what I’ve seen, it hasn’t bothered the boys, though. Again, if you’re looking for finish off a cosplay costume, this is just a mask, not a full helmet. This would make a pretty awesome mask for Halloween, though! Way better than the thin plastic ones you get with the costumes.
