LOST TOYS - Iron Man Series 5

In prep for the upcoming release of Iron Man 2 and the Iron Man Animated Series on DVD, I'm going to take a look at the unreleased Iron Man Series 5 action figures from Toy Biz.

It's amazing Iron Man even had 4 series of action figures based on the cartoon. The cartoon series wasn't that great of a success and kids can only buy so many different armored Tony Starks before getting bored. Series 5 was going to be made up of 5 different figures...

1) Dark Aegis - This character made a brief appearance at the end of the Iron Man cartoon, but not much else is known about him.

2) Radiation Armor Iron Man - I think it's self explanatory. 

3) Lava Armor Iron Man - check out the IRON MAN FIGURE ARCHIVE for details on this one. 

4) Living Laser - Never heard of this guy before.

5) Magnetic Armor Iron Man - Because you can always use Magnetic Armor. I wonder how Iron Man would stand up against Magneto with this Armor. Actually, I can't even imagine him walking down the street. Think of the crap that would stick to his armor. 

In addition to these five figures, there was also rumoured to be an Iron Man playset. This would have been really cool to have as a kid. I especially like the mini-hall-of-armor. A good place to store all of those extra suits. 

Not much else can be said of this un-produced line of figures. I don't think we're really missing out on a whole lot. Thankfully, Marvel action figures have improved over the years. But it is still fun to see what could have been...
