A batch of new images of some upcoming action figures for Marvelâs Iron Man 3 have landed online.Â Though theyâre not super clear, these images may hint at what fans can expect from the Shane Black-directed film.Â In the filmâs first trailer, we saw Tony Starkâs Malibu home being destroyed and Iron Man dropping into the water like a ton of bricks.Â Marvelâs Kevin Feige has made no secret of the fact that they want to get Tony metaphorically âback in the caveâ from the first film with this sequel, and armor seen on these action figures seems to suggest that Tony Stark will find himself with limited resources following the aforementioned attack.Â We also get a look at what could be Tonyâs new ride in the form of a toy car.
Hit the jump to take a look at the action figure images.Â Iron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3, 2013.
