A couple weeks ago Hasbro announced the release of some of the new toys supporting the upcoming release of Spider-Man: Homecoming and this release gave us the first real, up close look at Peter Parker’s original costume (as covered in this MCU Exchange piece). Today, ComingSoon.net posted images of the new Marvel Legends series of figures that gives us the first real look at Iron Man’s new Ultimates-inspired armor.
As you can see, the suit primarily takes it’s cue from the Ultimates interation of the clasic Iron Man suit with a hint of the Bleeding Edge armor we saw in Captain America: Civil War. While the new paintjob looks a bit jarring, it’s nice to see them take inspiration from the largely forgotten Ultimate Iron Man mythos. The new series also includes a larger version of the original suit figure, suggesting that audiences will get a closer and longer look at the pre-Stark-upgraded suit than the YouTube videos seen in Captain America: Civil War.
The series will also include a figure showing Spidey with his web-wings:
Another Spider-Man figure (which is part of the 2-pack with the Iron Man figure):
And, finally a special Build-A-Figure piece with the Vulture.
It’s nice to have some visuals to go along with the rumors about what is happening in the film. To see how these new iterations play out, however, we’ll have to wait until the film hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
