The marketing begins for the latest armoured avenger’s movie outing in Iron Man 3.
The new toys show off Tony Stark’s latest suit, plus War Machine – or, as he’s being referred to here, Iron Patriot. They’re from Hasbro’s Assemblers line, which allows you to customise each figure with different pieces and parts.
And it seems this is more than just a clever gimmick, as Starks new Extremis abilities allow him to build and control robotic drones from custom pieces of his previous armours.
All told, 16 figures will be released through 2013 to tie in with the movie’s release, starting in the US on February 11.
The movie finds Robert Downey Jr’s billionaire playboy philanthropist up to his metallic neck in trouble as he’s targeted by the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and other nasty types intent on taking him down a peg or 15.
With Shane Black co-writing (with Drew Pearce) and directing, Iron Man 3 is out on April 26.
