Iron Man Iron Assemblers Assemble On Ebay

Iron-Man-3-Iron-Assemblers-Iron-Patriot-01

A number of auctions by bluesduff2008 have revealed new images of upcoming Iron Man 3 Iron Assemblers figures. This revelation may startle older collectors as these figures are aimed at a younger audience. These figures have less articulation and are built around their armor assembling gimmick. Whether this proves to be popular with their target audience remains to be seen. Articulation is as follows:

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Hips

The figures shown include the following:

  • Iron Man
  • Iron Patriot
  • War Machine(maybe?)

In addition to plentiful repaints of Iron Man(some are listed as Stealth Armor, Arctic Armor, we’re not actually sure what their official names are supposed to be). Click the title bar to see the new Iron Assemblers toys.

    Say it isn't so!!! that would be a cool and purchasable figure line if they hadnt ruined the hip joints.
    too bad.

  2. kostej's Avatar kostej says

    Not only hips. Also knees and elbows. The arms are supposedly interchangeable, so I do not see much of shoulder movement either.

    That is one ugly sob. Man they're getting cheap as hell these days..

    I think they both look cool, but the damn articulation is Dark Knight Rises Level...I know everyone is going full on hater mode, but we all know that we will secretly pick up a few of these...That being said, this is F'ing pitiful.

    I bought an IM and a Patriot. I've bought from Jimmy before and I think $9.99 with free shipping is better than $9.99 plus tax a few months from now. Articulation is nice but I almost never pose these bastards anyway.

    Yeah I went on ebay and saw 7 Iron Man 3 figures which are all Iron Man variants. Horrible.

    Looks like calling the movie lines sister lines to the Marvel Universe line may be a stretch in 2013.

    these could be prototypes but it they arent then how MU going to survive then i have no idea although this just a movie line

    Does anybody think they'll be lower priced like the limited articulation figures at dollar general and xmas tree shops?

    I HIGHLY doubt that. Look at the Transformers Prime figures from earlier this year, hollowed out parts, and yet they cost more than figures from last year. If you take inflation into account maybe they are about the same, but still, for the price we are paying you are getting less of a figure.

    I think it's pretty clear at this point, if you are a Marvel collector, Hasbro is focusing all collector emphasis on the 6" scale. Look at the Walmart exclusive Avengers and Spiderman Studio series figures. They are catered towards us moreso than the 4" lines for both respective movies.

    Looks like Iron Man Legends is it for us next year.

    I'm loving the designs for the most part. There are a couple there I wish were normal figures. Otherwise still unsure about these. The idea is sound, but the execution needs some work.

  11. nomad1632's Avatar nomad1632 says

    the designs are cool the sculpts and articulation suck what happened to the iron man 2 design team the sculpt and articulation was the best heres hoping the main line will be up to that previous level.

  12. avengerboy123's Avatar avengerboy123 says

    Hasbro, if these aren't prototypes...

    It's terrible that Hasbro's getting so cheap these days.

    Guess I'll never have up to date Avengers figures...

    I'm just hoping that this isn't the bread and butter 3 3/4 line, that maybe this is like a gimicky side line or something like "BUILD YOUR OWN IRON MAN SWITCHABLE PARTS"

    That would be fine just as long as they give us some basic 3 3/4 line

    That's a really, really good question.

    I haven't seen any text on another 3.75" Iron Man line and know Hasbro must be hurting with it's ton of IM2 stuff still on the shelves but I am curious to know if these gimicky craptacular figures are all we get in the 3.75" range for IM3.

    Anyone know if there is any regular figs coming out for the line (in 3.75")?

  15. fosterlager's Avatar fosterlager says

    I don't know. There was an articulated Spider-Man in this year's movie line, maybe they'll throw collectors an articulated bone in this and the Wolverine lines.

    Then again maybe not.

    Yes, but the remaining figs, while a bit cartoony, had in comparison, much greater articulation than these static craptacular IM figs. These are as bad as the Iron Man Adventure figures.

  17. fosterlager's Avatar fosterlager says

    You're right. These look like they should come with the vehicles. Weak sauce.

    And some of those figures are pretty good.

    Let's hope that holds true and they are more in line with IM2.
