There are a lot of "Iron Man 3" toys on the way, but the latest batch of Marvel Pop! figurines could be worth a bit more attention than just trying to figure out if we'll add them to our collection or not.
As pointed out by /Film, four new "Iron Man 3" Pop! toys have been unveiled. One is the Mark 47 suit which has now become a staple of "Iron Man 3" promotion, the other is Rhodey's War Machine and a third is the Iron Patriot. But it's the fourth suit that has us the most interested. If you want to stay spoiler-free for "Iron Man 3," turn away now.
If you thought Hot Toys' "Iron Man 3" bust looked cool, just wait until you see the new 1/6th scale figure of Tony Stark they've revealed.
The first shots of the limited edition collectible figurine come courtesy of the Hot Toys Facebook page. In addition to Stark, the set comes with a "newly developed head sculpt, newly sculpted advanced body with light-up chest light and highly detailed accessories."
Were those "Iron Man 3" busts not enough for you earlier this week? Well, you're in luck, because Hasbro has a new line of toys tied into the upcoming movie on the way.
The new "Iron Man 3" action figures are due to arrive on February 11, USA Today reports. That's a good three months before the movie is expected to hit theaters on May 4.
These action figures have a fun twist: Consumers can customize their Iron Man or War Machine suits with different pieces and parts, and can also add accessories like projectile launchers. This way, fans can get their own unique version of Iron Man.
The comic book movie statues are coming, the comic book movie statues are coming! Both Hot Toys and DC Comics have unveiled some of the "Iron Man 3" and "Man of Steel" tie-in merchandise we can expect this year, and it looks great.
First up: Hot Toys. The company unveiled some of its 2013 line-up on its Facebook (via ComingSoon.net) and, unsurprisingly, there's plenty of "Iron Man 3" stuff in there. There are two Iron Man busts, one of which can be seen above, as well as a set of Tony Stark's lab and some mini-Iron Man suits.
The days of the "Dark Knight" trilogy are behind us, but as is the case with Batman, legends live forever — especially when action figures are around to keep that legend alive.
Such is the case with the upcoming 1/6th scale "Dark Knight Rises" Bane collectible made by Hot Toys. The figure's release date is still weeks away — BigBadToyStore.com estimates a March 2013 shipping date — but you can bide your time by feasting your eyes on brand new photos of Bane, posted on the Hot Toys Facebook page.
See some other highlights below.
There is no such thing as too much Agent Coulson. We've had him in multiple Marvel movies, we're getting him on a weekly television series, and you can enjoy him daily thanks to Clark Gregg's frequent Twitter updates.
And now, here's a brand-new way to bring Coulson into your lives: Hot Toys' action figure adaptation of the fan-favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
There's no release date for the Coulson toy beyond the vague "coming soon," but until it hits shelves, you can take comfort in three spectacular preview photos, seen below.
With Batman, Joker, Bane and even Commissioner Gordon getting action figures of their very own, it was just a matter of time before another "Dark Knight" veteran, Selina Kyle, took her turn in the spotlight. The Hot Toys gang posted several new photos of their upcoming Catwoman toy, and as you can see below, the sculpt is purr-fect.

"X-Men: The Last Stand" is many things, but "universally adored" is not one of them. The rushed killing of Cyclops, the pointless Angel arc, yet another plot to depower all of the world's mutants, the Brett Ratner factor — when stacked up against those first two "X-Men" films, "Last Stand" falls very short, to put it nicely.
But if there are any redeeming qualities about the film, it's that Hugh Jackman remains as badass as ever as Logan. And because the world doesn't have enough Wolverine action figures, the Hot Toys gang have taken it upon themselves to honor Jackman's performance and (sigh) Ratner's X-flick by launching their very own "Last Stand" Logan figure.

Holy Hulk! The Jade Giant is officially headed our way courtesy of Hot Toys' continuing line of action figures based on "Marvel's The Avengers." Don't believe us? We've got photographic evidence of Bruce Banner's monstrous alter-ego to prove it!
"Hot Toys is proud to present the highly expected 1/6th scale Hulk Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from the smash hit The Avengers," the company wrote on its Facebook page announcing the figure. "The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of the giant green-skinned angered monster Hulk in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt with rolling eyeballs and specially sculpted muscular body."

What the world needs now is stop-motion action figure brawls, sweet stop-motion action figure brawls. That's exactly what you'll get in "Batman: Dark Knightfall," a stop-motion short featuring your favorite Hot Toys-created Batman action figures going toe-to-toe against each other. Derek Kwok and Henri Wong are the mad geniuses behind "Dark Knightfall," which gives fans a whole lot of service including cameos from two Tim Burton era "Batman" favorites, a veritable army of Joker thugs and a back-breaking brawl between the Caped Crusader and Bane that puts "The Dark Knight Rises" to shame.
