I don't know if you caught it in the Iron Man 2 trailer or not, but you do get a quick glimpse of Justin Hammer's Assult Drones going up against Iron Man and War Machine. They mostly remain in the shadows. It was such a quick shot and everything happened so fast that we weren't really sure who they were fighting until today.
According to Diamond Select Toys, Iron Man and War Machine are fighting a group of assault Drones that were created by Tony Stark's corporate rival Justin Hammer. These new toys give us our first real look at what these unmanned Assault Drones will look like. Iron Man definitely has his work cut out for him in this next film.
The drones were built to hand different kinds of environments. There's a Air Assault Drone, Ground Assault Drone, Sea Assault Drone and Tactical Assault Drone. I seriously cant wait to see these things in action on the big screen! Check out the drones below.
Here is the press release from Diamond Select Toys:
While one particular high-flying armor-clad character will remain hidden until the March release date, we can now reveal the full contents of our upcoming Marvel Minimates Series 35 Assortment and Iron Man 2 Single Pack Minimates Display. Rounding out the cast of Series 35 is the high-tech army builder paired with Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan - Hammer Industries' Hammer Drone! Glimpsed only briefly in the Iron Man 2 trailer, not much is known about the Hammer Drones - except that Iron Man and War Machine will apparently square off against an entire squad of them at some point during the film.
The biggest reveal comes in the form of our Iron Man 2 Single Pack Minimates Display, a special set of individually boxed Iron Man 2 Minimates limited to only 500 cases. This set was under complete lockdown, however now we can reveal the full contents!
Each display will include 12 individually packaged Iron Man 2 Minimates, including:
Air Assault Drone
Ground Assault Drone
Sea Assault Drone
Tactical Assault Drone
Plus limited short-packs found in every case featuring:
Battle Damaged Hammer Drone
Styled after the four branches of the US Military, exact how these high-powered armors will come to exist and what their creation means for Iron Man remains to be seen.
What do you think about these Assault Drones that Iron Man and War Machine are going to have to fight off?
