California, I'm afraid. :)



Curse you with your warm weather and your early release of toys. :D

Ah well, looks like I'm going to have to wait until the first.

If you really want to get a feel for both Crimson Dynamo and the Titanium Man, I strongly suggest you check out Iron Man #229 from late 1987. It's part of the overall Armor Wars storyline which is now considered a classic, but also serves an excellent stand-alone tale as well. It's one of my favorite Iron Man comics ever. I guarantee you'll be satisfied and realize how awesome both characters are once you read it. Check it out! :D

I still haven't seen these at any TRU I've visited recently. Want to start getting my Iron Man display started.

I found what appears to be a separate wave of movie figs including Marks V, VI, and War Machine (Movie). Interesting figs, but I don't like the current IM movie armor, at least in toy form.

I got my Crimson Dynamo yesterday, I wanted War Machine movie and Mark I but I figured these will go on sale like all movie figures do at TRU pretty soon, probably 2/$10. I can't decide if I'd rather have movie Mark I or comic Mark I.

You guys might want to check out your local Kmarts. Mine just put out a case of the IM2 Comic Series. I picked up Crimson Dynamo, War Machine, Basic Iron Man and 1st Appearance Iron Man. They run $8.99 at my Kmart.

Just saw a commercial for IM2 toys this morning touting the March 1st date.

So, those of us who have stores that are holding to the street date...only a couple days to go.

(don't know what I'm worried about. I'm broke anyway)

Sweet! Glad to hear you found it at a bargain price, Bert. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :D

Iron Man 225-232 "Armor Wars" is one of my favorite story lines. I think that it would be neat if they made figures of The Captain and Stingray under the lines title, both who appeared in the Armor Wars.

I'm going to pick up the comic versions from the line. Are they only available at Toys R Us?

As most of you guys know by now, I would give anything for a Stingray figure! :D The Armor Wars itself would make for an excellent line extension. How about two-packs in the Secret Wars style with a reprint of each comic involved? That would rock. 8)

Has anyone else seen these? I just got the news in my inbox:

http://www.actionfigurepics.com/2010/02/new-3-75-inch-iron-man-2-action-figures-unveiled-popeater-com?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+actionfigurepics+%28ActionFigurePics.com%29

I am loving the Nick Fury with soft goods trench coat! I hope Tony and Rhodey get removable helmets. The likenesses to Sam Jackson, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, and Scarlet Johansson are pretty much spot on for 3 3/4 figures. I was going to skip all of the movie versions but these are looking too good to pass.
