Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Review: Battle Vault

with one comment

Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad Battle Vault

It’s sad to see how much the Super Hero Squad has dwindled. In the last two years, only a handful of three-packs have been released and the two-packs are non-existent. But when a new Marvel movie comes out, Hasbro dusts the line off for what I keep thinking is the last hurrah. With Iron Man 3 approaching, Hasbro has released two two-packs that aren’t based on that movie.

A lot has changed since Iron Man was first released. The movie was such a surprise hit that Hasbro didn’t even bother making movie-themed toys, they just made some multi-packs and then had to scramble. The Battle Vault harkens back to the first Iron Man movie and it just works – even if it is all repaints. Read the rest of this entry »

No one expected Iron Man to do as well as it did. And with good reason, the recent attempts at Marvel movies had been less than stellar. The ill-received Spider-Man 3 and X3: The Last Stand meant fans of the character were apprehensive at best. Plus, Iron Man was a nobody before the movie came out.

Every piece of technology in the Iron Monger battle suit is stolen from Iron Man, and it looks like the armored villain wants to upgrade! He’s smashed into Tony Stark’s lab, intent on stealing the original armor. Luckily, Iron Man and War Machine are on the scene, and they’re armed and ready to blast Iron Monger into scrap!

Toy Review: Marvel Super Hero Squad Iron Man 2 – Armor Wars I

without comments

You’ve got to hand it to Hasbro, they know when they’ve got a hit on their hands and rush product out the door. But sometimes companies get a little excited about having new toys and put them out before the street date, and that’s exactly what Toys “R” Us did with the newest Iron Man 2 toys. But I’m not complaining, because anything that adds to my armory is okay with me!

Iron Monger is back and more powerful than ever! As the giant Super Villain smashes his way through Stark Industries, Iron Man and his friend War Machine prepare to bring the battle to the bag guy. Iron Monger might be tough, but against two supersonic Super Heroes he doesn’t stand a chance!
