Iron Man 3 is about to open in theaters. In other countries, it's already debuted. While Marvel Studios has tried to keep the story and spoilers under wraps, it turns out that some of the LEGO products are giving some possible spoilers. That's why at New York Toy Fair, the Iron Man 3 products were available for private viewing but photography was not allowed. This week we're going to look at a couple of LEGO sets.
The first set is the 'Malibu Mansion Attack' set. We've seen in the trailers that Tony Stark's pad gets a beating. The LEGO set consists of 364 pieces and gives a great amount of detail to the before-the-attack happens.
The Mansion set might seem like a lot but as with most LEGO sets, the key is pre-sorting the pieces.
With the mansion set, you almost get a calm setting between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts.
The mansion set gives a good idea of what you would expect. We see Tony's work area along with a kitchen area, because of course he'd need some sort of nourishment. We also get a tiny glimpse at his hall of armors. But with the Mandarin's helicopter attack, Stark's luxurious setting won't last.
You can imagine what might happen after the Stark's mansion is attacked. There are some tiny spoilers in this set but it's nothing that hasn't been revealed in the different trailers.
WIth the mansion being attacked, how can Stark survive? There was a glimpse on one of the trailers and surprisingly on the cover of the box art.
Yes, that's Pepper Potts in the armor. Is that something that happens in the movie? We'll have to wait and see.
As for Mandarin and his helicopter pilot, the Extremis soldier does glow in the dark. It's not necessary but does make it a little cooler.
This isn't the only Iron Man 3 set available. There's also the Extremis Sea Port Battle.
This is a smaller set but it does give you both Iron Man and War Machine. We have to assume there is a sea battle that occurs in the movie. But War Machine is not in the Iron Patriot guise.
WIth both Iron Man and War Machine, you can expect a quick battle. It's a cool set if you're looking for a smaller one to buy. But the mansion is pretty cool as well.
If you're a LEGO fan or a Marvel one, you'll want to pick up both these sets. As for what they mean for the movie, we'd have to assume there's some significance but either way, we're in for a treat in terms of the movie and with the LEGO building.
