SY605 LEGO Iron Man Minifigures

It's finally here! Time to update your LEGO Iron Man collection :)







What do you think about the idea of Iron Man with wings or jet-pack? >_<.


If you notice, I accidentally broke one of the blue flame parts in this set:








Various type of add-on jet pack for iron man: 



Put aside the extra parts, let's focus on the minifigures yeay!

LEGO Iron Man Mark 32 nickname "Romeo"



LEGO Iron Man Mark 21 nickname "Midas"



LEGO Iron Man Mark 27 nickname "Disco"



LEGO Iron Man Mark 29 nickname "Fiddler"



LEGO Mark 2



LEGO Iron Man Mark 31 nickname "Piston"

arghh! Can I assume this is a battle damaged variant of Piston with such defect on the mask? :(


LEGO Iron Man Mark 28 nickname "Jack"



LEGO Iron Man Mark 37 nickname "Hammerhead"
a.k.a LEGO Scuba Iron Man from LEGO #76048 Iron Skull Sub Attack



Now that you see it, you cannot unsee it. As it has been told by several readers in my previous post, the gap between the body and the helmet is too wide, exposing their neck. nothing wrong with the helmet.. but according to @ritche hortillo, this is because of the longer heads neck in newer Iron Man from Sheng Yuan. You can fix this neck issue easily using sandpaper :). Thanks for the tips @ritche hortillo.


  • Romeo, Fiddler, Jack, Piston and Hammerhead are new and first time issued by bootleg brand (Dargo has transparent version of Jack and Piston but the quality is horrible imho)
  • Hammerhead is 100% imitation from LEGO
  • Disco is also available in DLP9002 by Duo Le Pin 
  • Midas and Mark 2 - already issued several times by other brands


I am very satisfied with all minifigures in this set except Mark 2 and Midas. They are missing outline/color at the eye area.. is it possible they are in "offline mode"? Haha



Comparison with Decool (on left side): which one looks more attractive?





Okayyy thats's all for now. I know I have homework for the next few days >_<.


Yup, this is how I keep all my LEGO Iron Man this whole time O_o.

  2. SY and Decool should stop producing iron man/ batman variables. too many types of ironman out there is reducing business and interest of many buyers since they prefer new superhero rather than repeated variables.

    1. I completely disagree. I'd like to see all the different Iron Man suits done well. Some of these are nice, but midas and mk2 look rubbish. Romeo and Fiddler are alright, but a bit off. Especially as Fiddler is missing his digging arm like on striker/gamma. These have custom parts in the video game, so hopefully they can realize the digital mesh into a plastic piece.

      As for batman, see his bat-closet in the new movie:

      there are a LOT of cool suits plus his new rubber belt coming soon.

  10. Hi there, great blog! I have had time to find these yet. I must say that I'm not overly happy about the gap in the neck. If it is indeed the shape of the head to blame, could you please post a comparison photo so we can see where the problem actually lies. Thank you. :)

  11. Hammerhead is copied from LEGO correct?
    And the rest is from Crayonbricks Custom Ironman design right?

  13. Great review! I admit this set is good, despite the flaws mentioned including the helmet issue. But there are something I need to argue though.

    Firstly, that Hammerhead is not 100% accurate to Lego's - the right one used Hero Factory-styled armor but this one used Chima's design instead! Fortunately, SY will release corrected version included in their next Hulkbuster-styled MOC set revealed at recent China Toy Fair.

    Secondly, I think the helmet issue is not because of longer neck, but it is because of misaligned peg hole inside the helmet. I find that this error began sometime after their release of Age of Ultron inspired sets. Like that Midas, for instance, you can just replace the helmet with Mk 42's helmet from SY213 sets! DLP (SY's sub-brand) had no similar issue, so you can replace some of the helmets, for instance Disco you mentioned, with DLP's!

    That's it, i hope some of these info i provided could become some useful input for your reviews. Members of FB LBK (Legion of Brick Keepers) group also enjoy reading your reviews and wondering if you ever joined the group!

    1. I agree on this in regards to the helmet issue. It is not the neck but the peg hole inside the helmet. It has extra plastic which blocks the peg from being fully inserted, thus, exposing the neck. What I do to fix this is basically sanding until the necks are entirely removed.

      You may want to update your blog for the Iron Man suit review.

  15. Great review. Im liking the iron man set now but i dont really like the fans and wings. I just saw on our local store a new set of SY. Its a deadpool set. I hope you can make a review of it as well.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like this new age of Sheng Yuan, with all these add-on mini builds looking bad ass, and not like the old ones, where they throw random small parts, but I like those too.

    anyway, I'm back from the dead.. I never missed a week without visiting this blog, even though I've been missing from my own blog. but I made a new post on my blog http://thepoorcollector.blogspot.com/ after a year of silence, and I'm planning to make more new posts :) so please visit!

  18. Hey guys, do you know where I can buy SY Lego online? I've been really passionate about collecting superheroes Legos but it's really hard to find SY brand in my area :/

    1. Have you ever bought something at Aliexpress?
      It's one of the easiest ways to buy SY and other bootleg brands directly from China.

  19. Hi... I just want to let you know that the Scuba Ironman is different from the original Lego... unfortunately... :(
    If you have the chance to compare the picture, you will notice... (I have the comparison picture, but I don't know how to upload it :D)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Agree with the previous poster that SY's scuba ironman is quite noticely different from the genuine Lego version in terms of the shade of green colour, the "scuba gear design" and the copper face mask colour.

    btw, looks like your "battle damaged" Mk31 Piston is due to manufacturing defect / QC issue cos mine looks perfectly normal.

    1. I just placed an order for the Captain America 3 minifig by XINH just to see whether they've improved on the quality of their minifigs. My past experience with this brand wasn't that great.

      I would rank Decool and Sheng Yuan as the better brands for bootleg lego minifigs or alt minifigs never made by Lego.

      However, this bootleg Scuba Ironman Mk 37 from XINH is probably a better copy of the original Lego version (compared to the Sheng Yuan's SY605 reviewed here)

  22. I love those bootleg super heroes minifigs, but it is getting a little out of control right now. There are just too much of those figs. Too many brands are making different or almost identical minifigs. Is there anyone who can tell me who is making what and which brands are the same or at least strongly related? I'm from Europe and those Chinese brands, I only buy from aliexpress, are unknown and some kind of mistery to me. Did Mr Legostore fall asleep, by the way? We are missing a lot of new stuff :-).

  28. Hi, first of all thanks for your great work, it was really nice to find that I am not the only one kind of obsessed with this minifigs. I love the fact that you can even find things that lego has not produced like the fantastic 4.

    I have one question that requiere more experience than mine. I am looking to buy a hulkbuster or similar to expand my ironman collection (that includes the lab :D) not only to display also to play with the poses. Which one do you recomend the decool 7110 or the Sheng Yuan SY357 (lele's face loks sad)? Or going for something different like the SY360A3? Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi @SergiT. I'm sorry that i took a while to reply to this comment. I should reply this sooner :).

      Yup, from my review, Lele's version has sad face but from my recent review of Sheng Yuan's Mark 37 and Mark 25 (OMG i havn't publish the post) both have sad face. So even SY you might get sad face. So it's really depend on your luck. As for SY360A, it's a little version of hulkbuster. You still need to have the LEGO's size hulkbuster as part of your collection. but SY360A is a keeper too. To me, it's more like cosbaby version of hulkbuster. So get them both :)
