For real. I haven't seen a new Iron Man fig at Target or WM in roughly 18 months. No way these ever see the light of day

There's a new wave of figures that I have only seen showing up at Target stores.  It's got the Stark Racing concept armor, and a couple of other new pieces.

However, it seems that with these new figures Iron Man will be shifting to a new package design.  I guess they're about to wrap up the movie line.

I've seen that wave at Target as well Nick - it's got a Black/Gold repaint of the Mark V/Suitcase armor and it's also got a Red/White repaint of the Concept Inferno Armor with a new (?) jetpack.

I wonder what ever happened to the updated Mark VI and War Machine figures with removeable helmets that were shown well over a year ago... We know the Nick Fury figure that was shown with them ended up in the TRU Heavy Artillery Drone set, but those two and the Black Widow figures have been total no-shows, almost like we're supposed to pretend they never existed in the first place.

There's also a red/grey War Machine variant in the new wave.  It's really not all that exciting.  But that new movie style Armored Whiplash?  I definitely want that one!

As for the disorganization and mixed messages?  Chalk it up to Hasbro's Marvel group not being totally on top of things.  At past Toy Fair collector media events they have been the group that seems a little disjointed.  As for Black Widow?  I'm kind of glad they waited.  Hasbro has generally not been all that great with female figures, but the Avengers Black Widow actually looks pretty good.

Are you not a fan of the Marvel Universe female figures?  I've been dissapointed in the paint jobs on many, but I like the overall design of most.   I do agree that Hasbro Star Wars female characters are pretty weak.

I haven't been following the Marvel Universe line.  So yeah, my frame of reference for Hasbro with female characters is based in large part on the Star Wars line.

I found the lone Heavy Assault Drone aka Whiplash in robot armor from the final fight between him and Im and Wm. Comes with removeable saw blades you can swap out for the bendable electro whips and two variations of drone heads. tho neither shows vanko a la the never seen/released Im and Wm with open helmets.

It looks like the Iron Man 3.75" figure line is back and kicking!  I found figures in the new packaging today that were first shown at NY Comic Con:







Notable movie figures?  A new electronic version of War Machine, Iron Man mk VI with removable chestplate & a carry-forward of the Mark V suit.  Most of the rest are concept armor designs.

Because if there's anything we need more of at retail it's Iron Man figures.  ::)

These made it out but those First Edition Transformers Prime figs they showed at the same time are MIA/cancelled.  Hasbro's really getting the job done these days aren't they?

The Iron Man 2 figure line has probably been one of the better selling Marvel 3.75" basic figure lines.  Are we going to get plenty of different versions of Iron Man in this line?  Sure.  That's always been something that's come along with Iron Man....different versions of the suit.

The one thing that's been pretty disappointing with the Iron Man 2 line?  They should have offered more basic carded Hammer Drones as well as the Movie Whiplash armor.  I liked the Army Drone, but the only way to get that was in the TRU 4-pack with Iron Man Mk VI and Nick Fury.  And the Navy Drone was cool too, but you could only get that in the Target exclusive 3-pack with Iron Man Mk 5 and unarmored Whiplash.  This is where this line let a lot of people down.

Do you have some inside information on this or is that just your assumption?  I've seen a lot of stores that have tons of IM sitting around and I never really saw the pegs empty.  I'd guess that the Marvel Universe has been a bigger success for them, but that's just based on limited observations in what I'm sure is a small percentage of their sales.

The Iron Man 2 line was able to pull off a 3.75" figure line with a minimum number of characters and still put out a line that was in reasonably good demand, and made it to a figure range that's gotten up into the 50's in terms of figure numbers.  Considering that the movie came out 2 years ago and the figure line still seems to be alive and kicking?  That's pretty impressive.  Especially considering that other Marvel movies like Thor and Captain America and their respective toy lines had a considerably shorter shelf-life.
