Media Release — Moviegoers have been awaiting Iron Man 2 ever since the Armored Avenger’s original blockbuster made its debut, and in May the sequel finally arrives. In anticipation of that release, Diamond Select Toys (DST) has crafted several Marvel Select action figures based on the film – befittingly claiming the front cover of December’s PREVIEWS.
In the November PREVIEWS, DST teased its Iron Man 2: Marvel Select Iron Man Action Figure (Item Code: NOV091231, MSRP: $19.99), the only full-size figure that will be based on the Iron Man 2 designs.
That figure is spotlighted beautifully on this month’s front cover, while inside the new catalog itself, consumers will find the companion Iron Man 2: Marvel Select War Machine Action Figure – based on the armor James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheedle) will don in the new film.
