Iron Man 2 6-inch figures ARE COMING!

Post by DroothR on Fri Apr 02, 2010 7:25 pm

How these were announced over 2 weeks ago without my knowledge, I have no idea.

But they looks incredible! Shocked

http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=23&itemid=12889

Detailed sculpts, ToyBiz-ML level articulation, decent paint, INTERCHANGABLE HANDS...

affraid

Of course, they ARE Wal*Mart exclusive though. Sad

But maybe we'll be lucky enough to get them here...

To be honest, I'm not sure how much of a loss it is. I imagine there'll be a mainstream launch of figures for other stores and while the hands are a bit of a loss; what they've done with War Machine's launchers honestly turn me off them. Rather than being nterchangable, I'd have much rather have seen them being a single piece that was retractible on both sides of the armour with the gun turret pivoting. Considering how far action figure technology has come in the past 20 years, there's really no excuse for that kind of laziness with desinging and engineering an action figure these days.

Give me the ML scale villains from the IM2 Comics Figures line and I'll be interested.

Hope we see them down under, although I'm only really interested in a screen-accurate War Machine to replace with WMINO from figure range from the first film. Not a fan of the suitcase armour or the latest version with the odd silver bits and triangular reactor thing.

I'd definitely be interested if they released a Whiplash, Black Widow and some of the other villains/baddies from IM2.

Cheers.

Yeah, but how long after the release of the Starscream and the other TFs did we get them here in Australia? We only got them because Hasbro needed to clear excess stock.....and Australia does tend to be a good "dumping ground" so-to-speak.

All I'm saying is don't hold your breath.

Since I have a lot of similar IM figures from previous release only interested in the MV version.
Definately need a line of 6" IM villains. The 3.75 scale crimson dynamo in 6" would be sweet as well as a whip lash.
I am sure the villain wave will come out at some point.

Damn. Shocked

I know I tried telling you guys that they'd be sweet, but they FAR exceed even what I was anticipating!!!

These are possibly the best figures Hasbro has EVER made. Razz

I've heard that Series 2 will coincide with the home video release later in the year, and feature at least Nick Fury, Black Widow, and Whiplash.

Agree!!! They are way better than any figures from Hasbro.
They might even better than old toybiz figures.

Cant wait to get these, I heard most ToyRus also selling these in taiwan. XD

I want Iron Man armors Mark I - IV in this quality now. Sad

I'm still in disbelief that after utterly failing Marvel Legends, Hasbro just pull these out for a little store exclusive with no fanfare. Neutral

Surely they must realise that if their 6" Marvel figures were all done in this quality, then they'd have sold MUCH better...

Re: Series 2

Is that series 2 of the 6" figures or one of the other scales Hasbro is playing with (3.75", 8", etc)?

GREAT news if it is 6". Now we just need to get these figures down under.

Cheers.

The above is what I've heard for the 6" line. Smile

If these gain popularity (and hell, how could they not?) they should be fairly easy to buy on ebay. Its just trying to find them cheapish Razz

I'm underwhelmed relative to the "Classic" designs of these characters in the 3.75" IM2 Comics figures.
