New Iron Man 3 Toy Plans
When we last discussed the future of Iron Man via the upcoming film (Iron Man 3 AKA Mo' Iron, Mo' Drinks, Less Sexy Time) in the hands of Hasbro, we outlined new play features, vehicles... and for those paying attention, a slight (ever so slight) movie spoiler! Now, new pre-orders back up our initial intel and present exciting news for Marvel Legends fans...
IRON MAN LEGENDS 6-IN AF ASST
IRON MAN AF ASST
IRON MAN ASSEMBLERS AF ASST
IRON MAN ASSEMBLERS BATTLE VEH ASST
IRON MAN SONIC BLASTING IRON MAN AF CS
IRON MAN 10-IN ARC STRIKE AF CS
IRON MAN 12-IN AF CS
IRON MAN ARC FX GAUNTLET CS
IRON MAN ARC FX MISSION MASK CS
MARVEL LEGENDS 6-IN AF ASST
Pre-orders state these items will begin shipping in February (as previously mentioned). You'll note the Iron Man Legends are specifically listed as 6 inch, lending further proof the core line of action figures (ie; Iron Assemblers and standard action figures) will be 3.75 inches like the last film's line. We spotted Marvel Legends at the tail end of that list, so we included it. Marvel Legends 6 inch action figures for 2013 kick off with ...
Red She-Hulk (with a Savage She-Hulk swap out)
Ultimates Captain America
Hit Monkey Build-A-Figure
The only word on wave 2 notes the inclusion of Jean Grey and The Wrecker. To bring you up to date, you'll also see 3.75 inch figures (and more) from The Wolverine (the upcoming film), 3.75 and 6 inch figures (and more) and Spider-Pods for Ultimate Spiderman (the animated series) and 3.75 inch figures (and more) for Avengers Assemble (the animated series). No word yet on further Marvel Universe figures beyond these announced items...

The Inhumans Greatest Team Pack
Magneto and Captain America X-Men vs Avengers Comic Pack
Wolverine and She-Hulk X-Men vs Avengers Comic Pack
Black Costume Spider-Man and Doctor Doom Greatest Battles Pack

And then singles..Mysterio, Puck, Professor X (slotted for 2013 with Jubilee and Blastaar) and Nova
Diamond Select's Marvel Select 7 inch action figure line will get in on the Iron Man 3 action as well with the following...
Iron Man MK42: A Diamond Select Release! Designed and Sculpted by Gentle Giant! The newest iteration of the Iron Man armor is now the newest Marvel Select action figure! Based on its appearance in the upcoming feature film Iron Man 3, the Mark 42 armor is Tony Stark's latest and greatest, able to activate and assemble via remote synaptic link. This highly detailed Select figure stands over 7 inches tall, features 16 points of articulation and comes ready to display in the famous Select-style blister card. Release: 03/27/13 - SRP: $24.99
War Machine: A Diamond Select Release! Designed and Sculpted by Gentle Giant! The War Machine Armor just got an upgrade! Piloted by Tony Stark's longtime confidant James "Rhodey" Rhodes, War Machine is an even more heavily armed version of the Iron man armor, and Iron Man 3 will see the suit get a new red, white and blue paint job. This highly detailed Select figure stands over 7 inches tall, features 16 points of articulation and comes ready to display in the famous Select-style blister card. Release: 03/27/13 - SRP: $24.99
Not from Iron Man 3, but certainly a collectible to drool over is NECA's upcoming 18 inch Iron Man from The Avengers film! The figure stands approximately 18 1/4" tall and features over 25 points of articulation, detail, and LEDs on the eyes, chest, and palms. Window boxed packaging. Limited to 7,500 units. NECA is striving to keep these 18 inch action figures under 100 dollars, even with all the articulation, bells and whistles (like light up features). We'll be looking for final production pictures as we get closer to February and Toy Fair!
