Iron Man 2 Teases from Hot Toys and Diamond Select Toys

Iron Man 2Iron Man and War MachineMarvel Minimates 35 Iron Man 2 Teaser

Not sure if this is just coincidence or conspiracy, but both Hot Toys and Diamond Select Toys had teasers for Iron Man 2 today.  First, Hot Toys teased an IM2 announcement coming tomorrow with two posters from the movie.  I’d love to have the kind of cash to be a completist on their Iron Man 1/6 scale figures.  As it is, I’m getting the upcoming battle-damaged Mark III armor from the first movie and will probably be satisfied with that – but if they announce a War Machine I’m sunk.

Next, DST showed off Marvel Minimates Series 35 – an Iron Man 2 assortment – but still had three of the 7 Minimates in silhouette.  One of them is War Machine, another is another Iron Man armor – Mark VI? – and the last is an army builder,  so I’m guessing it’s not a ScarJo Black Widow.  If it is, that silhouette isn’t very flattering. 😉

Iron Man 2 Minimate Details Emerge

Due out in stores next April, the 35th assortment of Marvel Minimates features the stars of next spring’s sure-fire hit, Iron Man 2! While the first series of Iron Man 2 Minimates has been offered to comic store retailers, there are still quite a few mysteries surrounding this blockbuster wave!

The first assortment from Iron Man 2 will feature two top secret Iron Man Minimates – one paired with the evil Whiplash and one paired with War Machine. Along with the as-of-yet-unrevealed versions of Iron Man, the wave will also include an Army Builder featured in the film and an accompanying Pepper Potts with Happy Hogan variant.

To compliment this blockbuster release, Iron Man 2 Minimates will be available in Toys R Us stores nationwide and through two exclusive C2E2 convention sets – due to be announced separately by DST and Action Figure Xpress. Fans can expect full details on these exciting exclusives as well as full images of the Series 35 Minimates assortment as the April 2010 release date approaches.
