Iron Patriot Available At Walmart Canada

_MG_3263

I’ve been bothering different retailers on a constant basis and then tonight I see this. Wonder no longer my Great White Northern amigos, Walmart is the place to be in North America for the iron patriotic. As long as you have a PS3, 360 or a WiiU that is. Of course, there is still no info on Walmart.ca, so in store is probably our only option. There were no WiiU pre-order cards, so I’ll be taking my chances and showing up on release day which is listed as 09/30/13 online even though the pre-order card says October. It’s pretty much October, I suppose. At least we know for sure now.

Good news for our German fans, Amazon.de will be carrying the Iron Patriot minifig and as a pre-order bonus, you’ll also receive a copy of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game. Iron Patriot will ONLY come with the PS3 version, and it’ll cost €2 more.

Thanks go to jonas for the tip.

Still no word on Canadian availability.

Walmart Now Lists Iron Patriot Pre-order Bonus

Iron Patriot

Walmart.com has updated their pre-order pages for the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game. The listings now show Iron Patriot as a pre-order bonus. You must order a console version of the game in order to get the figure so Nintendo DS and 3DS fans are out of luck. Xbox 360 ($49.96), PS3 ($49.96), and Wii U ($49.96) games qualify. Walmart lists the ship date as 12/31/2013, but everywhere else lists 10/31/2013 so I’m unsure when you can actually expect to get your minifig plus video game accessory.

Iron Patriot Pre-Order Bonus at Walmart

Iron Patriot

Update: Clarified the pre-order terms.

GoNintendo has published an article today outlining the various retailer exclusives for when you pre-order LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. That exclusive we were all expecting GameStop to have? Well it looks like the big blue W has it. Walmart’s pre-order bonus is none other than Iron Patriot. The article states you have to pre-order the console version, so no cheap handheld love for us gamers on the go. There are no details yet on their web page, and they only list the Xbox360 version online, so you may have to head to a b&m store to get your pre-order in.

I have to say, this is a really, really, sh***y way to get Iron Patriot. Look, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes looks like a FANTASTIC game by its own right. There is no reason to restrict a CORE character from the Iron Man 3 movie as a pre-order exclusive. Out of all the characters in the Marvel Universe, THIS is the guy they go with? It sucks to be that kid who goes to see the movie and wants to play with his LEGO Iron Man toys and not have an Iron Patriot to go with it. Nope, sorry, gotta wait til October when the game comes out. There are 42 versions of Iron Man’s armor, why not pick one of those for crying out loud?

Yeah, I’m pissed. Stupid, stupid move.

Thanks go to Chris White for writing it in.

Iron Man 3 Posters Get The LEGO Treatment

LEGO Iron Man 3 Poster 1

It only took me about 48 hours to post these new LEGO-ized Iron Man 3 posters after they popped up on ComicBookMovie.com on Saturday, but better late than never. Of course, what caught my eye was the unwarranted inclusion of the Iron Patriot armour in both posters. I hate the thought that he’d pop up as a hard to get exclusive, but the hope is alive either way.

Iron Man 3 Sets Revealed

Brickset is reporting on new Iron Man 3 sets revealed by Barnes & Noble. Three sets have been shown so far, which matches up to what the press release released today states: 76006 Iron Man: Extremis Sea Port Battle, 76007 Iron Man: Malibu Mansion Attack, and 76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown. The supposed released date is set for March 15. So unless there’s an account exclusive that hasn’t been revealed yet, this is all we can expect for Iron Man 3 sets. And if that’s the case, pardon my french but where the hell is Iron Patriot?!?!

Thanks to ninnymuggins for the heads up.

Iron Man 3 Trailer

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.
