Awhile back Comicbook.com reported on some upcoming Iron Man 3 Minimates, but we were asked to remove our descriptions of them, as they gave away certain plot elements that Marvel Studios wasn’t ready to announce. Now, with Toy Fair having occurred in New York this past week, some of these previously top secret Iron Man 3 figures can now be officially unveiled.
The Iron Man 3 Minimates are 2-inch mini-figures with 14 points of articulation and a variety of removable and interchangeable parts and accessories. The Iron Man 3 Minimates assortment will include four 2-packs, two exclusively at comic shops and specialty stores, and two shared with Toys "R" Us.
War Machine with Maya Hansen and Aldrich Killian with Cowboy Tony Stark will only be available on the comic specialty market, while Iron Man with the Mandarin and Iron Patriot with a top-secret figure will be shared with Toys "R" Us.
While we have images of seven of the figures, one of the announced figures is still being kept top secret. We’ve also learned that there will be two more sets of Iron Man 3 Minimates made exclusively for Toys "R" Us and another exclusive box set at an as of yet unannounced retailer. The details on those figures are currently under an embargo.
