New Look At Hasbro's 3.75" IRON MAN 3  Figures?

Possibly offering an imitation of additional suits of armor that'll appear in the anticipated Marvel threequel, Hasbro's 3.75-inch action figures based on Iron Man 3 may have surfaced.

As previously reported and confirmed by Diamond Select Toys solicitations, at least 40 new suits of armor will be existent sometime during Iron Man 3 next summer. What's unknown, however, is whether all the suits will be identical, presumably to Tony Stark's mostly golden armor, or if they'll be different in design. Assuming the latter, we may have an early look at three of those armors.

A China-based eBay seller is advertising what seems to be the first look at Hasbro's upcoming wave of 3.75-inch action figures inspired by the Shane Black-helmed actioner. Assumed to be knockoffs initially, Idle Hands dug up an earlier fitting description, via Hasbro, seemingly deeming them legit.

“IM3 Iron Assemblers Action Figure Assortment: 14 "Connectable" figures (wave 1, Feb 2013) with multiple interchangable pieces to deliver max customization. Wave 2 in Mar & Wave 3 in Apr.”

It's usually typical for Hasbro to development tie-in figures that won't exactly feature in the movie. However, with over 40 suits being packed into Iron Man 3, it's not completely unimaginable for those other comic-like designs to finally appear on-screen. The promo photo (above) even offers a faded look at what Tony Stark's new Hall of Armor (after his home is destroyed as seen in the trailer) will look like design-wise; which'd certainly fit the many suits. What do you think?

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 exec producers. The film hits May 3, 2013, & is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pict.
