Look at this trash in the 3 3/4 line.

I saw those today as well.  From what I've read about them, it is some sort of interchangeable line where you can mix and match parts or something like that.  From those pics, it appears they are quite underarticulated and don't look all that great.  Like you said, trash.  Oh well, it makes it easier to save money though, and I hope that they come out with at least a few in "Legends" form like the Avengers and Spidey lines at WM this year.  I know there is supposed to be an Iron Man Legends type line of 6" figures, but I'm not sure of the details (comic or movie based - or both, store exclusive or retail wide?).  These figures though...eek.

Looks like this line may be loaded with potential disappointments.  :(

Not a good way to go, since IM3 will be the first Marvel movie following on the box office success of Avengers

I just remember hearing classic comic Iron Monger BAF.

That... that HAS to be some sort of Happy Meal toy right? Or something in the Deluxe line that comes with a glider? *crosses fingers*

Yeah, pretty awful.

I saw an electronic Iron Man Mk 42 from the Iron Man 3 line at a TRU store a few days back.  The new armor look is cool, but this figure was about 18 - 20" tall, and not representative of what we're likely to see from the 3.75" figure system.

I saw a similar Iron Patriot at Target, which spokes phrases...including "I'm here to back you up, Iron Man"

Wait, I thought he was the villain!

Based on this AFI gallery from Toy Fair, the 6" Iron Man 3 line is looking a good deal better than the 3.75" figure line.

I saw most of this stuff at Target the other day. All terrible. They did have one of the 6 inch figs though, and agreed, it's the only thing worth buying from the line.

I like about half of the 6" figures, but may be swayed to get them all in order to get that Iron Monger.  Surprised he isn't a tad larger though.

Saw these all today for the first time at Walmart. Ugh. Boggles my mind they can crank this stuff out but can't spare any resources for the Clone Wars.

I saw the ASSemblers today at TRU - I have ZERO interest in getting these. If they had made figures that were of the same quality as the Iron Man 2 line, I'd gladly grab Iron Patriot and a new Iron Man. The best part about those Iron Man 2 figures was the level of articulation they crammed into them. These look like Happy Meal toys to me.

I have been getting select figures from the Marvel movies as they come out from Hasbro, kinda glad that it looks like I won't be continuing that trend.

I saw the Assemblers line at Walmart last night. Not impressed.  I can see what they're going for, but for the price I dont' think it's worth it.  I don't want to spend $10 on more than one figure so I can mix and match pieces...will parents want to splash out that much cash also?

I bought a couple IM2 figures but I don't see buying anything from this line.  I'm just waiting for my Hot Toys 1:6 Mark VII to come in...that may be the last IM figure I have to buy.
