The Goal: To collect all the actual information we have for the Invincible Iron Man set, as well as the associated releases, and to provide links to the places we got that information from. This post will be updated when more information appears, and I will post to this thread to indicate when I have changed this post. I rep everyone I can for help in collecting evidence; don't be shy, help me find everything!
This set will feature the Improved Targeting mechanic. Solicit.
Some boosters will contain special "Rings of the Mandarin." Solicit.
Solicit: The Armored Avenger Returns! Marvel HeroClix: The Invincible Iron Man introduces the all-new Improved Targeting combat ability to Marvel HeroClix! Make ranged attacks against your enemies in new and exciting ways! The Invincible Iron Man features 60 all-new figures to add to your collection, with popular sub-themes including Iron Man's allies and enemies (both classic and new!), Alpha Flight, Dreadnoughts, and more! Plus, collect the rings of the Mandarin - these special objects are randomly inserted throughout the five-figure boosters, acquire them all and ultimate power will be yours to wield! Marvel HeroClix: The Invincible Iron Man is offered in 10-count Booster Bricks as well as 24-count Gravity Feeds featuring 10 figures with all-new dial designs packed in single-figure foil packs.
Mandarin Rings: Picture. Nine of the ten rings will be randomly inserted in the standard booster packs.
OP Kit Information:
Solicit: Contents: 9 limited edition figures (3 copies each of 3 different figures), 3 3D special objects (3 copies of one 3D object), 3 3D object displays (3 copies of one 3D object display), 10 2-sided maps (24x36), 1 OP instruction sheet.
Mandarin Ring: One of the ten rings of the Mandarin is included in the OP Kit (Solicit). The Disintegration Beam ring is included in the OP kit.
The Power Plant Resource: The base that holds the Mandarin's Rings is a resource and is part of the OP kit (Solicit).
I really hope Wizkids has a comic accurate and effective playable dial, for the Mandarin, as compared to his battles with Iron Man in the comics, with a decent sized sculpt with acrylic effects, in his traditional costume from Tales of Suspense #50 from 1954.
Happy about the clix return of Alpha Flight and the Wrecking Crew. Hoping for a ton of Iron Man villians and hopefully not a ton of new Iron Men. I'd like for the over/under to be 4 or less versions of Tony himself. However I'd take some "Iron Chases" (different armors/versions of Iron Man) like they had in ASM and Batman.
OR other armored heroes. I know we just got "Iron Spider" Spider-Man, but I can only hope we get "Fighting Chance" Captain America!
I'm gonna go ahead and make my opinion known that it's probably not Rescue. I was kinda the guy who burst peoples' bubbles on that, but despite the fact that the pose is pretty effeminate, the armor really looks nothing like Rescue.
I hope I'm wrong. Well, not really "wrong," per se...I hope we get one in the set, but I hope it's not Red and Gold.
I'd like to be wrong because I love the character (Unless I'm fighting against her in Avengers Alliance, then she's a #####.), and I'm SURE if we're gonna get a Rescue, she's gonna be in this set, but that's not her.
That's more than likely Iron Man's Extremis Armor: Seen Here
