I wanna see the armor he built to fight Megatron in the New Avengers/Transformers crossover a few years back.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

I just wish Hasbro didn't f--k up the toys for this movie as bad as they did. I'd love to have little 3.75" versions of these on my shelf. I already have a nice little Hall of Armor from Iron Man 2 and Avengers - they really kinda of dropped the ball here.

But I do think that Hulk Buster armor is bigger - but more along the size of Iron Monger I think - but not as massive as the comics Hulk Buster armors. Although it's conceivable that he could be wearing a thinner armor like a variant of the Mark 5. But I think probably his legs go where the legs go, but the arms are more inside the "torso"

I know. What the hell is up with these latest action figures with no articulation? Do they really think kids (let alone collectors) are gonna want these cheap looking things?

Obviously it's a cost-cutting thing, and they assume enough parents will snap these up for their kids without looking, but still. It's sad how the toy companies don't even seem to be trying anymore.

It's too bad the only figures that get 6 inch figures are the Mark 42 and Iron Patriot movie version







The rest get shafted to 3.75 inch build a figure

To think, the blatant consumerism/toy-selling actually makes sense within the series for once.

The build-a-figs look very poor quality. I've seen them at the Wal-Mart and they seem to lack the most basic articulation... The IM2 series were great, aren't they doing more of those?

Well, kids will play with anything, so what will they care? And I thought collectors never opened up the packaging anyway, so what would be the point of articulating a toy that will never be opened?

I know Batman isn't widely known for his "hall of suits" but it would be funny the Batman movies took a page from Marvel.

Who wouldn't want to see Aqua-ninja-sonar-ski Batman on screen?



Closes we got was a sonar suit in "Batman Forever" and Batman's slimmer suit in "The Dark Knight"

Not sure if you are serious or not, but "Batman & Robin" was primarily made to sell toys. That's why it was so horrifically bad.

I hope they signed the actor that plays the new President for 10 films. I still get a bit of a whiplash with the president change so quickly from X2 to X3.

That's William Sadler. And yeah, I hope they signed him to a multi-picture deal, too. It'd be awesome to see him make an appearance in Captain America.
