Iron Man 3 Arc FX Repulsor toy review (spoiler warning)

May 7th, 2013 by Marc Comments

*SPOILER* Remember that scene in the movie where Eric Savin has just dumped a waterpower onto Tony Stark, hes captured Harley – Starks little boy sidekick – and things look like they’re about to take a turn for the worse?  Then suddenly the little kid uses a gadget Stark gave him to get free of Savins grip, then Stark takes him down with a mini wrist mounted repulser?

Well now kids (read – grown ups) can re-enact said scene with this handy Arc FX Repulsor toy!  Its a compact wrist worn device which not only lights up but also emits one of three sound effects when its blue repulsor is pressed!  But is it worthy of a place on your collectors shelf or will it only serve to gather dust at the bottom of the toy box?  Find out in our video review below…


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
