Heh-heh, it's funny if you think about it, but the Iron Man suits were originally built in a garage. A well-equipped garage, but a garage, nevertheless.

The Mandarin's combat cart is funny, but it's good enough for kids, I bet. I do appreciate that you can get the different armors with the smaller sets.

Building Stark's Hall of Armor is going to be as popular a past-time as building Bat-Caves, soon, no?

I'm curious about the Mansion. Pepper is apparently wearing the armor on the box, and saving tony, but she has a seperate fig on the minifig list, so whose face is under the mask's face plate on the figure?

That'd be cool, but I don't think it's quite as interesting a build. The main draw of the HOA is the suits, whereas the Batcave has so much more in it. The vehicles, the souvenirs, the computer, the caverns. Still, I'd like to see a full mansion made =)

A full Tony's garage would be cool :P all the cars in there with the suits.

Been looking at some of the Youtube IM3 reviews and Malibu Mandarin is a really nice minifig. I wish the beard was a bit less... friendly looking though. I'd also love to see the fig with Sumo Wrestler's top knot for more accuracy. It looks like it should fit, so unsure why they didn't use it. Seems almost like they want to keep some Minifigure series pieces exclusive to that theme.

my theory?

Spoiler: show
when mandarin blows up the mansion, tony throws his bracelet onto pepper, making his armor suit up around her instead of him. the scene in the trailer where you see iron man fall into the ocean among the rubble, it's actually her cause she has no idea how to fly having never been in the armor before. I have no idea what happens to tony. maybe he has another bracelet.

Interesting, I really am not sure what to expect, but I like that.

Also @ likeabossk, the suit's main head is just a plain white head. So you can have it on display without having to use either of the civvie minifigs' heads.
