Tony Stark Carjacked
NOW! Flash forward to April 30th...a mere three days away from the opening of Iron Man 3. While I would never ruin anything in the film for you, I will tell you one item that isn't there. That damn Battle Vehicle...in any shape or form. If it was there during the development phase of Hasbro's toy lines.. it's gone now. Makes you wonder why I still have a cease and desist on articles on my website, hmmmmm? Someone should make this right...some day.
I'll also remind you of the Omelete report from Simon Philips, President of Marvel Entertainment International and Consumer Products, where he remarked Tony's new suits include fan favorites from past comics and a suit for Pepper Potts. He went on to mention "In the hospital, Tony is injected with the Extremis virus" (which, in the comics, allows Stark a more cellular control of his tech and further interfacing with other technology through sheer will..phones, computers, global satellite networks..you name it.) Philips explained the virus allows Stark to “create new armors from leftover pieces of older ones. The man may have said this, but either he was having some fun with the reporters, looking to drive early sales of the Assemblers action figure line, or was smoking the heavy duty kush. None of this happens.
Here's a recap of some killer Iron Man toy articles we've run in the past...
