Watch the latest and final Iron Man 3 trailer above and curse LEGO for not making more armors.
There’s also an article which may give minor spoilers so be warned. And I’d like to state in the most modest way possible, that I WAS RIGHT!
It’s time for Toy Fair! The LEGO Collector Event at the International Toy Fair is happening this Sunday from 7am to 9am EST. We’ll be starting our coverage a little bit after that. The badges that you see above, feature the Movie Starlet minifig from the Collectible Minifig Series 9, most likely hinting at all of the licensed properties that are sure to dominate the show floor. The Lone Ranger, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Superman, Iron Man, and who knows what else. Oh, and of course, Star Wars. With more active licenses under LEGO’s belt than before, this year’s show is sure to be packed full of goodies. We’ll do our best to bring you the most complete coverage as possible so come back on Sunday to check it out.
Ultron32 wrote in and linked to this ebay auction that is listing unreleased War Machine minifigs. They are purportedly from an unreleased set based on the upcoming Iron Man 3 movie. This isn’t the first time that minifigs have shown up on eBay months earlier than the official set they came from. The last such instance happening late last year with the January 2013 wave of minifigs.
The official synopsis of Iron Man 3 goes like this:
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
I’d say the trailer does a pretty good job of portraying that and I look forward to seeing if Tony Stark can move beyond being such an insufferable tool and learn something from his new “teacher”… Take a look and tell us what you think.
If you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, then you may be anxiously awaiting the third installment in the Iron Man franchise due to be released next year. The rumours surounding sets based on the film being circulated seem to be pretty well accepted as fact even though we have no official word on the subject from LEGO themselves. If we do get a series of Iron Man tie in sets similar to this years Avengers release, then each new picture and leaked bit of info could translate into LEGO form. Speculative Spoilers Ahead, Read At Your Own Risk.
In case you haven’t heard already, the Marvel Studios panel laid out plans for phase 2 of their long-reaching Cinematic Universe. The titles for the previously announced Thor and Captain America sequels were welcome additions after the highly original Iron Man 3. Thor The Dark World and Captain America The Winter Soldier were certainly not the biggest news though as Kevin Feige confirmed the rumours of a Guardians Of The Galaxy movie and even brought the first piece of concept art from the movie to give fans an idea of the design direction for the space focused film.
If LEGO continues to make sets based on the MCU, these films could offer a lot of new material and Guardians alone has the potential for great space sets and very unique minifigs (Rocket Raccoon!). Most interestingly though, may have been Edgar Wright’s inclusion in the panel, cementing the long in development Ant Man movie. Wright screened a test FX reel for the fans and while no formal announcement of release date or casting were made, I’m glad to see this movie is still on track and possibly included in the phase leading to the Avengers sequel. You can read more on Marvel.com and just about every other comic based site which are now frothing at the mouth, like ComicBookMovie.com who managed to get some shots of the newest suit in Tony Stark’s closet. I’ve stuck Iron Man at the end of this post because I’m just not a fan of this look, I’m much more interested in the Iron Patriot suit and some other plot rumours floating around about the other films. *cough* Falcon *cough*
This new suit can be sumed up in the best comment I’ve seen thus far: “Too much mustard.”
