So far the marketing releases for this have been great. The posters and trailers have been awesome so far, let's just hope the movie itself is as good or better.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Although the tie in toy merch kinda sucks - I mean not that I 'need' to buy the toys, but I like them as display pieces - and the stuff that's come out - my gosh, who was doing the QC on them? Paint looks like they were made by some knock off company. Low articulation, really chinsey paint apps. Even though the Iron Man 2 stuff is still peg warming - it was at least quality. That's one of the cool things about Iron Man - he's got so many different suits, doesn't take much to want to make a "Hall of Armor"

That aside - I've got high hopes for IM3 - looks like it's already shaping up to be better than Iron Man 2 - which wasn't "Bad" it just wasn't as good as it could have been.

The 2nd wave of Marvel Legends will have Iron Man 3 Mark 42 and Iron Patriot movie version 6 inch version.









Ignore the bleeding edge armor on the right.

We've already got some of the Iron Man 3 action figures at my Wal-Mart. I actually don't think they're too bad looking.

I'm not a fan of the 3.75" figs that are branded "Interchangables". Where the arms, legs and head separate from the torso so you can mix/match to create your own custom IM suit.

I guess at least one reason for this is to give some differentiation on why you'd pick it up vs duplicating the toys from the first two films.

This is what I'd love to own when it comes out, but it will probably cost a fortune.

There's going to be so many options it's not even funny.

You have revoltech.

Mark 6



They just released their own version of the Mark 7

Before Figma jumped into market it was the only 6 inch figure option




Figma will release their own Mark 7 in the summer/fall.










Bandai decided to one up revoltech with their own Mark 6

For thread purposes so people can see them.





It's like an "item searching" picture

-WWII helmet. Most likely not Captain America's first helmet
-Iron Man face plate
-Dragon statue(Fin Fang Foom)
-Dog tags.

Probably all Mandarins conquests.

Seriously, what about this poster is such a turn off to the point of boycotting the movie? It's a cool looking poster of an intimidating villain. I mean horrific?!

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Well lets just start with camo-pants shall we? Really? CamoPants? Ridiculous! You have the power of ten rings and you go and rob an army surplus store. Then lets go to the dog tag collection. Ooohhh scary, must mean he is evil. Sunglasses. Cant see his eyes he must be evil. The pose. Yes I am so relaxed in my room that I can just flop into my chair, ho hum. Thankfully the official poster cropped out the two very distracting blue helmets in the picture. They totally kill the color scheme of the room and take your eye away from the main figure. There is nothing in this poster that makes him look intimidating. A small guy with glasses seated in a chair in a relaxed pose. Max Von Sydow was far more menacing in his garish Ming outfit. His beard was better as well.
I was really hoping this movie would make up for the mistakes of the last one, but for me this is a major fail of character design.

This is a joke, right? You're doing some-kind-of impression of a radical fanboy picking out petty flaws? I mean you came "this" close to complaining about the color of his nacelles.

To me he looks like an intimidating man surrounded by the treasures/tokens for those he's slaughtered. The camo pants? Eh, it's just an image thing. Again, probably a "trophy" from some conquest or maybe nothing else fits. I doubt he gets to the mall often to buy a good, real, set of pants.

Man, to write the whole movie off just because of how the villain looks in a promotional poster? Pretty darn lame.
