Marvel IRON MAN Movie Toys Announced

     February 15, 2008





With Toy Fair starting in New York City tomorrow, the toy makers are starting to release info and images about their upcoming toy lines. One of the lines that comic book enthusiasts will be excited to see are the new “Iron Man” toys based on the Jon Favreau movie.


While the products are not as extensive as the upcoming “Indiana Jones” toy line, there are a few things being made that sound cool – with the Invincible Iron Man 12-inch figure being on the top of the list.



Since Toy Fair officially opens tomorrow, if you check back sometime this weekend I’ll have a ton of new images from all the Hasbro toy lines. But until then, here are the first 3 images I was sent and what’s being made. Also, even though the movie gets released on May 2nd, the toys will be on store shelves on March 23rd.
