New Armors are Unveiled as the Final ‘Iron Man 3′ Minimates are Revealed!
April 5, 2013

With the movie’s release date only a month away, Diamond Select has finally unveiled the remaining three figures from their assortment of “Iron Man 3″ Minimates, and all three are new armors from Tony Stark’s vast armory! These three figures will be exclusive to Toys “R” Us when they hit stores later this month, and will round out a full assortment that will be shared with comic shops, specialty stores and toysrus.com.

The three new Minimates include:
- Iron Man Mark 17 – Artillery Level RT Suit (“Heartbreaker” Armor)
- Iron Man Mark 33 – Enhanced Energy Suit (“Silver Centurion” Armor)
- Iron Man Mark 41 – Skeleton Suit (“Bones” Armor)

The Silver Centurion Armor and Bones Armor will come in one two-pack, while the Heartbreaker Armor will come with a figure of a partially armored Tony Stark. Each armor has a removable helmet with Tony Stark’s face underneath, and comes with an interchangeable hair piece; all four figures will be exclusively available at Toys “R” Us.

Toys “R” Us will share two additional 2-packs – Iron Man Mark 42 with the Mandarin and Iron Patriot with the Extremis Soldier – with the specialty market, while War Machine with Maya Hansen and Aldrich Killian with Cowboy Disguise Tony Stark will only be available in comic shops and specialty stores as part of Marvel Minimates Series 49.

Minimates are 2-inch mini-figures, each with various interchangeable parts and accessories, and the Iron Man 3 assortments will be out in late April. To pre-order the specialty assortment, contact your local comic shop (http://www.comicshoplocator.com) or visit your favorite online toy retailer!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
