UK Toy Fair 2013 … Super Heroes
Whilst the Super Heroes section this year was not in it’s own little section, cordoned off from everything else, it was still somewhat shrouded in mystery as the set names were not listed and none of the minifigures were actually present at the fair. We did get pictures of what they’ll look like, but that was it. The sets were there, but I don’t recall many details … here’s what I can remember and what I can glean from my audio recording …
Released in April … for the Iron Man 3 film … each set recreates a major scene from the movies …
76006 as yet unamed … includes figures Iron Man, War Machine (yes, the picture looked like the leaked picture we’ve seen on this forum!) and Aldrich Killian. Price Point is £19.99.
76007 as yet unamed … includes figures Tony Stark, Pepper Potts (exclusive to that set), Mk42 Iron Man, The Mandarin and another, as yet unamed, figure! Price Point is £34.99
76998 as yet unamed … includes an exclusive Iron Man and The Mandarin. That’s all I noted down. Price point is £11.99.
Released in May … for the Superman Man of Steel film … again, each set recreated major scenes from the movies …
76002 as yet unamed … includes Superman and General Zod minifigures. Price point £11.99.
76003 as yet unamed … includes Superman, Colonel Hardy, General Zod, Faora and another figure perhaps, but I can’t read my own handwriting … maybe Lorvan?! Price Point £39.99
76009 as yet unamed … includes an exclusive Lois Lane, Superman and General Zod. Price point £19.99.
Quite why I can’t remember any details about the actual sets, other than the figures, I really don’t know??!!
Oh and I just remembered this … coming in August, we’ll get 50003 Batman game, which will feature several microfigures of both heroes and baddies. They were not on display at the fair, just standard blank microfigs, but the game looked pretty good fun.
