As Diamond Select Toys reveals more and more of their Avengers movie toy line-up, fans have started to ask, where’s Iron Man? And while DST released a couple different versions of the Iron Man armor as part of their Iron Man 2 line, they were retailer exclusives that have long sold out, leaving new collectors Starkless. But no longer! The Mark VI armor, which Tony developed at the end of Iron Man 2 to utilize a newer, less toxic energy source, plays a role in the Avengers movie, so we’ll be re-issuing that figure in new, Avengers-branded packaging in April. The 7.5-inch figure will include the same display base as the previous version, as well as the same flip-up mask display feature, revealing the face of actor Robert Downey Jr. underneath. Look for Iron Man to make his debut in comic shops and specialty stores in April, around the same time as the new Hulk figure and slightly in advance of Hawkeye and the movie’s mystery foe! Pre-order him later this month from Diamond Comics Distributors’ Previews catalog!
