The Falcon is ready to fly off of your shelf

Falcon (1)

In life, there are three great falcons. There’s the natural falcon which has made nature a stomping ground for perfecting the predatory arts, the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars and the most recent addition to the team: The Marvel Falcon. Even in a movie which starred two spry super-soldier pensioners blattering one another around a few trillion dollars worth of US Military hardware, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon almost stole the show.

A cool dude who needs to check for runners on his left, his Falcon was a fun point of view character who easily stood tall with a World War 2 legend backing him up. AND THOSE WINGS! Listen, while having a proper Iron Man suit may be a dream that only Rupert Murdoch can afford, the Falcon flight-suit is actually attainable. After all, there’s a mad Frenchman tearing around the skies right now on a jetsuit, so anything is possible.

In the meantime, I’ll settle for chucking a sixth-scale replica off of my shelf and seeing if it can fly, while quoting Clarence Boddicker from Robocop:
