Considering Tony Stark's Hall of Armor, his allies and new enemies, the next expansion of Marvel's cinematic universe, Iron Man 3, will certainly provide many opportunities for toy manufacturers to showcase their crafts, for mass production. So, it's no surprise high-end companies, like Hot Toys Limited and Kotobukiya, have recently obtained licenses in anticipation of the Shane Black-directed action thriller. And now Sideshow Collectibles is the latest to announce Iron Man 3 figurines.



In other Iron Man 3 toys related news, Blogomatic3000 and Brick Fanatics were among attendees of the this year's annual UK Toy Fair and toured the LEGO showroom, where they got an exclusive look at LEGO sets based on the upcoming Marvel threequel. Although photos were prohibited, the blog sites provided the following descriptions. Check it out with a mild spoiler alert:

“Three new LEGO sets will be available to coincide with the films release, set numbers are 76006, 76007 and 76008. Set No. 76007 is Tony Stark’s Malibu Mansion (the given set name is 76007 Malibu Mansion Attack), which includes minifigures of Tony Stark, Iron Man, The Mandarin, Pepper Potts, Aldrich Killian and a pale green bad guy with veins on his face, who we were not allowed to know the name of. Set No. 76006 is a small set featuring a boat which is apparently a key scene in the film – this is the set with the rumored “Iron Man Extremis” title. The final set in LEGO’s Iron Man 3 range is 76008 Iron Man vs. Mandarin, which will feature an exclusive Iron Man minifigure, called Iron Man Heartbreaker, in a suit you won’t find anywhere else.”



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? Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968. “Iron Man 3” is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures & DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing & Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee & Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film hits May 3, 2013, & is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

"Iron Man Heartbreaker" -- I love the sound of that!

I wonder who this "pale green" villain is? That'd be tight if ironman had some badass suit at the end..
Thunderbolts1 - 1/22/2013, 9:24 PM
Pale Green Guy? I am thinking The Leader or Radioactive Man. I don't know who else could fit that description.
Thunderbolts1 - 1/22/2013, 9:24 PM
Or M.O.D.O.K. but I very seriously doubt that, only a guess.

Radioactive Man
LordHuck - 1/22/2013, 9:28 PM
Heartbreaker could be a Rescue?
TankD - 1/22/2013, 9:36 PM
radioactive man.
Benjamitesandwich - 1/22/2013, 9:38 PM
Radioactive Man! :D
crazymarvelgurl95 - 1/22/2013, 9:40 PM
Yay guessing games my favorite lol. For the green guy, I think it might be Radioactive man.

Martian Manhunter???
birdfists - 1/22/2013, 10:06 PM
Hush.. Just hush.

Definitely Radioactive Man.
MarkV - 1/22/2013, 10:10 PM
Duh, of course it's Radioactive Man. Come on people, FOCUS!
Thunderbolts1 - 1/22/2013, 10:33 PM
The only thing is, that scene would be way too early for Radioactive Man. Tony meets Dr. Chen after the Mandarin attack, I believe.
mgeoff88 - 1/22/2013, 11:24 PM
It is Radioactive Man. I think we'll see Dr. Chen become Radioactive Man in the mid-credits scene.

With all the villains they have in IM3, I think he is being saved for IM4.

Of course it's radioactive man, but am i the only one who saw a set called iron man vs mandarin. Mandarin will have powers, and i'm betting it's through the rings.

So pumped for this movie
AFlashFloodOfVenom - 1/23/2013, 9:31 AM
Might be an extremis pumped soldier... maybe Coldblood or Firepower (think that's what they are called). I've read about Mandarin's 'extremis mercenary cyborgs' being in the film so it could be one of them.
TheAbomination - 1/23/2013, 10:11 AM
Radioactive Man? Didn't see that one coming... ...said no one ever.
TheCaptain - 1/23/2013, 11:06 AM
@AFlashFloodOfVenom
I was just going to say that it's more likely an extremis soldier. They're probably going to save Radioactive Man for a later film (Avengers 2?). And what @MARVELPSYCHO79 said Mandarin is definitely going to have powers. The set is called "Iron Man/Mandarin Showdown" so yeah he is going to have powers.

Guys there is a HUGE chance that it is The Leader. He was already hinted at in The Incredible Hulk, and it would make sense.
