You'd think a Doctor Doom figure wouldn't be hard to get wrong - armour, mask, slap a cape on, done - but it's still remarkable when a Toy company manages to get Latveria's finest not just right, but pretty much perfect like 3A have.

This 1/6 scale Doom is gorgeous - the detailing is amazing, and he even has LED's in his body and helmet to give him a neat glow, and even better painted than the prototype they had at this year's New York Toy Fair. 3A will be putting out three Doctor Dooms (their second figure with the Marvel license) - the 'classic' shown above, a 'stealth' Doom with dark grey armour and a black cloak, and the brilliantly funky 'ghost' Doom, all white with gold detailing:

Classy as hell, because that's how Doctor Doom rolls.

There's no price for these beauties yet, but 3A has teased that there'll be more images to come soon - the figure will be available for preorder this Friday, October 31st, ahead of an early 2015 release date.

I call shenanigans.

There is no way Doom would ever have a stealth suit. When he enters the room, you will know it. Should he need to do so unobserved, he will inform the room that they will turn around and forget he was ever there. When Doom tells you he is being stealthy, you listen and act accordingly.

Stealth is for the weak.
