Iron Man 3 Minimates Emerge

The latest Iron Man 3 trailer has everyone talking about what kind of products we'll see on toy store shelves as the movie's release date approaches. And while they still need to keep some of their figures under wraps, Diamond Select Toys has unveiled two more Marvel Minimates based on the film!

The first, "Suit Up" Tony Stark, will be one of four Toys "R" Us-exclusive Minimates, and will come packaged with a mystery figure to be revealed later. He is shown wearing parts of the Mark 42 armor, which can be summoned and controlled via mental link in the film, as seen in the trailer. The boots and gauntlets will be removable, and Tony will also come with regular hands and shoes.

The second is an Extremis Soldier, who comes packaged with Iron   Patriot and will be available at  comic shops and specialty stores as well as at Toys "R" Us. These super-strong operatives are shown receiving the Extremis treatment in the trailer, and the Minimate will come with a removable vest, a pistol, and interchangeable hair pieces to create different looks.

The other Minimates that have been revealed are Iron Man Mark 42 with The Mandarin (shared between specialty and Toys "R" Us), the specialty-exclusive War Machine with Maya Hansen, and the specialty exclusive Cowboy Disguise Tony Stark with Aldrich Killian. Three Toys "R" Us figures remain unrevealed.

Minimates are 2-inch mini-figures, each with various interchangeable parts and accessories, and the Iron Man 3 assortments will be out in April. Hit your local comic shop to make sure they earmark a set for you!
