The Official Iron Man 3 Merchandise Thread
I checked and did not see a thread designated for merchandise for Iron Man 3, in the section for the film, or, in the Iron Man World one, either. To kickstart the discussion, I am excited that Upper Deck will be releasing a line of cards for the film, like they did for The Avengers (I enjoyed collecting the costume cards.)
Here is the announcement:
2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 brings the comic-based blockbuster to the hobby. Loaded with memorabilia cards and other inserts, the set has content for both fans of the film and the comic.
The 2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 base set has just 60 cards, making it relatively easy to put together. A Paladium Poisoned parallel puts a foil spin on the set. Parallels fall one per pack.
2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 hobby boxes deliver three total hits. Inserted 1:12 packs, Heroic Threads Memorabilia cards have costume swatches worn in the film. Boxes also have either an autograph or a sketch card. Actor Autographs (1:144 packs) have signatures from the movie's stars. The set also has Comic Autographs (1:144 packs) that are signed on-card by Iron Man writers and artists. Sketch Cards (1:36 packs) all have original art done directly on the card.
Hall of Armor (1:36 packs) is an acetate set that looks at Iron Man's many suits of armor.
Printing Plates are also randomly inserted in packs.
2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 hobby boxes have 24 packs of five cards.
Estimated Release Date: 4/15/13
Product Configuration: 24 packs per box, 5 cards per pack

"Johnny Storm's a good-hearted kid, sure, but he has the attention span of a toaster, and he leads with his face; in Johnny's undisciplined mind, there's only a single synapse between thinking and doing. The Avengers' battle cry is "Avengers Assemble"; the Fantastic Four's is "Johnny, WAIT!"----Mark Waid
