LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man 2013

In the past couple of days, we, along with YourCreativeFriends, reported there were new images of what appears to be new Iron Man minifigures from the 2013 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets. Now, YCF has gotten their hands on a couple of these minifigures and has done a early review of them.

For the Mark XLII suit, the helmet is the only only thing that’s the same as in the 2012 suits. The torso itself is mostly red but has gold printing for most of the front and about half in the back. The hands are also gold instead of red. The arc reactor is printed white. The front of the legs also has some of the gold printing. There is also some toe printing for the boots. What’s new about this version of Iron Man is his face printing. He has a confident expression on one side and a scared/worried expression on the other. Again, we believe the Mark XLII will be in the Malibu Mansion Attact (76006).

On the other suit, we still are not sure if it’s the Heartbreaker or another one. What we do know is that the helmet is new with some silver printing on the chin and blue eyes. The top of the helmet is also shaped a little different. The head is the same as in the 2012 versions. For the torso, the arc reactor is the same blue as the eyes and is strapped in with what looks to be a harness that wraps around the back of the torso. There is also some gold and silver printing in the middle of the chest area. The legs also has gold and silver printing from the hips to the knees. This variant also has gold and silver printing on the toes.

New LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man Minifigure Revealed

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man

A couple of days ago, we reported of a new Iron Man minifigure from the 2013 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets. Eurobricks has posted another Iron Man minifig and this looks like the new MK XLII (42) suit. As you can see in the image below, the one on the right looks drastically different from the on the left which makes me think that the one we reported earlier could be the Heartbreaker suit. The Mark XLII suit has torso printing that looks very similar to the one we saw at Comic Con 2012. The only downside is that it does not have any arm printing. So what do you think of the MK XLII Iron Man minifigure?

The set has Equila as the featured minifigure and comes with one instruction booklet and 5 game cards. What’s interesting about this set is that you use the Speedorz to hit the eagle dart and have it shoot at the targets. Take a look at the video below to get a feel of how the set work.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man 2013 Minifigure Leaked

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2013 Iron Man

Stud from YourCreativeFriends has informed me there are now images of the new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man 2013 minifigure. My guess is that the minifigure is from the Iron Man Malibu Mansion Attack (76007) set but I can’t confirm that as of this time. From my knowledge of the Iron Man comics, Tony Stark wears a different suit in the Extremis storyline so it might not be the minifig in the Iron Man Extremis Sea Port Battle (76006). In the Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Battle (76008), the set mentions Heartbreaker suit but I can’t find an image to compare it to. Could the minifig be wearing the unseen Heartbreaker suit? The suit on the minifig looks a lot like the one seen in the beginning of the Iron Man 3 trailer but not sure which version of the suit it is. If any of your readers recognize the version, let us know in the comments below. Again, thanks to YourCreativeFriends for this news.

Update: After seeing Minifigures’ comment and confirming with a friend who’s into the Iron Man comics, the suit in question could be a version of the Mark V portable suit.

After seeing many discussions on what the suit could be, we’re still not totally sure what the suit is called. It looks similar to other suits but there are subtle differences. We’ll just leave naming the suit in the air until we have confirmation.
