What It Is
Based on the new movie Iron Man 3, which hits theaters May 3, 2013, comes a new line of Iron Man action figures called Avengers Initiative Assemblers. The Assemblers action figures feature an Interchangeable Armor System, allowing one figure to create more than 25 armor combinations and allowing the armor to be switched out between the available figures in the line for hundreds of combinations.
The Marvel Iron Man 3 Avengers Initiative Assemblers Battle Vehicle comes with an Iron Man action figure and repulsor-charged race car. There are three weapon accessories that can be detached from the car and attached to Iron Man's arms. Kids can also blast Iron Man into battle by placing the figure into the vehicle's figure launcher and pressing down on the back of the car to send Iron Man flying.
Why It’s Fun
Iron Man fans will like creating all kinds of armor combinations for this Iron Man action figure and race car. The Iron Man 3 Avengers Initiative Assemble line makes it easy for kids to customize Iron Man and create all sorts of action-packed superhero scenarios.
Who It’s For
The Marvel Iron Man 3 Avengers Initiative Assemblers Battle Vehicle is for Iron Man fans ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The launching feature is pretty cool, but it doesn't work every time, and it even says so in the instructions. It depends on the position of the action figure's arms. We got the figure to launch properly more often than not.
Additional Marvel Iron Man 3 Avengers Initiative Assemblers figures are sold separately.
At the time of this review, the movie had not yet been rated. However, Iron Man 2 was rated PG-13, which means that some of the children for whom the toys are intended may be too young to see the film. They can still enjoy the action and adventure play of this classic character, however.
