Marvel Legends Iron Man 3 Wave 1 & 2/Ultron News + Pics

Postby Spoon » Tue Jan 15, 2013 6:49 pm

Haven't seen anything mentioned about this here. Given the fact that the Iron Man 2 line actually had some good figures, (War Machine, Mark IV & VI, Titanium Man & Crimson Dynamo), I figured it was worth bringing up. I know some of this was discussed at Comic Con. They are now available for pre-order along with the rest of the initial Iron Man 3 offerings.

Toy Ark Link: http://www.toyark.com/news/marvel-toy-news-4/bbts-news-new-iron-man-3-toy-pre-orders-7019/
BAF Info Link http://www.marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=252&itemid=15658

The comic style Marvel Legends figures are what I'm interested in the most. I think the BAF Iron Monger sounds sweet and will more than likely be spread over the two waves. I wonder if the BAF or any of the figures will have a variant? I don't think they will since I don't remember any of the recent movie lines using this strategy. Which seems reasonable for a movie line. Hopefully all the figures fit in scale with other ML. The recent Extremis & Neo Classic Iron Man are on the short/small side. I wonder how the Classic Horned Iron Man will stack up to the Toy Biz series 1 variant? This also makes me wonder if the figures will be new sculpts, or a ton of re-use/re-painting? Is the Iron Patriot a movie version or comic version? Will wave two be full of movie figures, forcing the purchase for BAF parts? Could be, hope not.

I do have decent hope for these figures. I really liked some of the figures from Iron Man 2. My favorite was the War Machine. I don't even care for him as a character. Just a nice looking figure that once you held it in your hands, justified the price tag. I'm looking forward to the Heroic Age Iron Man. He will most likely replace Mark VI Iron Man in my modern themed display. The Heroic Age armor lends some great potential to paint work and sculpt. I already have the Toy Biz series 1 gold variant. If the new one is better, I'll buy it. I don't know what to expect from Iron Patriot. I would be fine with a re-paint/re-use of War Machine if it's the movie version. If it is the comic version, I'd prefer a different design.

Thoughts?

Im actually really excited for these figures. I heard about them about a week ago from action figure pics. I am most excited for Herioc age Iron Man. For whatever reason Bleeding edge Iron Man really pleased me.

...Yeah same here...I didnt even consider how annoying it will be if they are wal mart exclusive. I am extatic about the Bleeding edge suit. I am also looking forward to Iron Patriot I just wish they didn't use the worlds worst articulation on him. Iron Monger looks like he is going to be AMAZING!

I cannot wait to see what wave two holds. I am assuming that Black suit from Marvel Now will be in wave two ...Unless its Movie Iron Man, Movie Iron Patriot, and Movie... well rather not say

Where did you get the pic? Find any of each figure?

After seeing that pic, I will be ordering a set of these from BBTS. 49.99 + 9.19 to ship isn't bad. These will be 17.99 to 19.99 in my area at TRU. Guess I will be trading my Mark VI sometime soon. Looks like I will be keeping the Iron Patriot and Heroic Age and dumping the Classic figure. If these don't come with alternate hands, maybe the ones from the IM2 line will fit.

Iron Monger BAF looks like it is going to be sweet! Series 2 I would guess will be most or all movie figures? Makes sense as it will hit around the same time as the movie. It Would be nice to get a plain old Tony Stark comic figure. I would settle for a movie one with alternate comic head. Probably sell more that way.

I found the pics on Entertainment Earth. I think a Tony Stark would be cool too but most toy companies few "men in suits" and say they will not sell

They do look cool, I wonder how large they are? Wasn't the body on the one with the "horns" a tad smaller if I remember when they originally used that body? Lots of reused parts from what I can see as well. Iron Monger is looking like he is going to rock though.

Here are some closer pics of each figure someone posted in a link to over at Toy Ark. Looks like the classic is a re-use of the two pack with a new alternate head, which was out of scale. A new sculpt for the Heroic Age and a re-paint of Extremis for Iron Patriot. Which means he may be too small as well. Not sure what size he is in the comics. Oh well, at least I will be able to keep one of them, maybe two. I'm most excited about the BAF now.

Also, is it just me, or does Iron Patriot's hands look too big for his body?

looks great I'm hoping they appear over here alot in the UK too which they should like most of the movie figures. I especially like that bleeding edge armour it looks like he has a much better bulk, lets hope he's the right height. I think they should make a marvel legends comic series with all the marvel movies that would be awesome but it's pretty unlikely :?

Cool news. It was referenced in all the reviews of the figures that have been hitting You Tube. Now I know where they got it from ;)

I was right about the size of Iron Patriot's hands. They are noticeably bigger. For those that have watched the reviews, how do you feel about the swirl paint effect? Is it just a cop out for shading?

I'm less excited about these only because Iron Patriot is too small and so is the two pack Iron Man. Still really want Bleeding Edge Iron Man. Looks like he could have had a better paint job, as compared to the MU version. If there weren't so many other (better) versions of classic Iron Man available, I'd be more excited about the two pack re-release. I dig the Iron Patriot, I just hate the size of the figure. If any of them should be slim, it would be the sleeker more advanced Bleeding Edge armor I'm guessing.

That Ultron had better be a new sculpt. Not that ugly, miss proportioned cyborg bat from the Legendary Riders series. Also, do we really need another Ultron after the superb Marvel Select version? That should have been the Mandarin. The series is two waves and four of six figures are Iron Man. Either way, cool BAF and they seem to be of decent quality.
