Previews has revealed the following info this month:

6 figures in total, in two waves of 3. BAF is Classic Iron Monger from Iron Man #300 (that was pretty much revealed at SDCC 12).

So who do you think will make the cut? Who do you want to see?

Wish List:

1. Iron Man Classic Space Armor
Image

2. Rescue
Image

3. Classic Beetle
Image

4. Blizzard
Image

5. Blacklash
Image

6. Iron Man Current Armor (from Fraction's run a few months back)
Image


Reality List:

1. Movie Iron Man Mark VII clean version (since all we got was battle damage in the Walmart line)
2. Movie Iron Man Mark VIII
3. Movie Iron Patriot
4. Movie Mandarin
5. Iron Man Silver Spinx Armor Update (to go with Iron Monger)
6. Rescue

Obviously, I'd prefer the former. But maybe, just maybe the actual line up won't be that bad.

...

Yeah, I know. :lol:

You know, they reset the numbering so much now that I can no longer count past 50.

No excuse! That fight between Stark and Stane is epic! Epic I say! It's probably my all-time favorite Marvel Comic! Years of story coming to a head in one double sized issue! Yes, you don't forget that number anytime soon. :P

My Iron Man motto is:

It is ain't Michinine/Layton (and now Fraction) it's crap!

It wasn't a bad story. The armor wars arc which eventually destroyed that armor was much better, though. Much of that storyline was plagued with mediocre art and supporting characters (remember the dork twins?). :roll:

What O'Neil did wasn't half bad, at least as far as Iron Man 200 after 201 it goes down hill from there.

Rescue (only if there's a helmet-less variant or comes with an extra un-helmeted head) and classic Beetle is all for me. I've had my fill of IM and IM related characters.

Blizzard seems cool as an idea.

BLASEPHEMY!!!!

There are at least 20-30 more Iron Man characters I still want, including some comic canon armors.

But I'm with you on the "fake" toy armors that never existed in the comic or movie.

I love the 'fake' toy armors. To call them fake is a bit closed minded, Iron Man is a property which opens up new things never seen before on screen or in a comic. Granted... some are a little lame but some are down right incredible and neat. It also helps put an Iron Man in ever kid's hands thus only helping the line sustain itself.

The glut of Iron Man toys over the past few years aside, I have to say out of all the major DC and Marvel characters which fill the pegs, Iron Man has been done the best. I like most of the variety of armor in the different lines.

Scuba Spider-man or rainbow Bagman anyone?

I will admit varient armors at least fit with the character, and I've picked up my fair share of them (especially those that make sense and look cool, like that blue Scuba Armor from the IM2 wave).

Unlike, say, Batman or Spider-man.

Yeah as much as that sells Spider-Man and Batman figures I never liked it... however it worked well with a pre-crisis Batman feel! :lol:

Maybe if I immersed myself into the IM canon, I'd have a greater appreciation for all the different armors. As it is, I'm just kind of apathetic towards most of them. There's only about 8-10 IM armors that I like, and I could probably only name half of those. :lol:

No, you're right regardless of the half a million armors in the armory, it does get a bit redundant. Not when those spaces could be for other figures not of Iron Man, I get it.
