    It's not really a glove as such. You can stick your hand in it but I don't think you can flex the fingers or close your hand. It looks similar to the Iron Man glove night light from Marvel, except it has a really small light in the palm...

    I'm thinking it's just some cheap thing, not worth wasting your money on.

    I reckon it's the hardest part of the suit. Hands down.

    I have one of these and it even fits my huge hands...The fingers flex a bit too.
    Compared the the actual studio model its pretty dead on...I was VERY surprised.

    ....as for why is there a right and no left, I can only guess that it is considered a novelty not a prop replica and the cost of tooling etc is more expensive that the projected profits that a left hand would make.

    I have one of these too, although there is no way I can fit my hand all the way inside it, my hands are pretty big.
    I didn't buy it to wear though, and It looks pretty good on display after a few alterations. The pathetic and incorrectly coloured led had to go, a single blue led was a poor choice by the manufacturer. Also the paint was a bit patchy on the back of the hand, not much of an issue for my purpose though. Here it is next to my Iron Man helmet. 20150405_210329-1.jpg
