Iron Man 3
Hot Toys is set to expand on its Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3 Cosbaby lines with a second series of IM3 figures in 2014. While the first series seemed more like an IM2 expansion with figures meant to more or less fill out Tony Stark's Hall of Armors, this second wave is pretty firmly rooted in IM3 with baby-ized versions of Iron Man Mark XLII, Battle Damaged Iron Man XLII, Pepper Potts in the XLII amor, Tony Stark, Iron Patriot and War Machine Mark II.
Read on for all of the links this Tuesday holds.
Most toy companies that licensed Iron Man 3 action figures released info about their wares in advance of the movie this past summer, but it looks like Kaiyodo has been waiting for the Blu-ray to drop before announcing its Sci-fi Revoltech Iron Man Mark 42. Standing a little taller than 6", the latest IM3 action figure offering packs 18 points of articulation - not unlike Hasbro's Marvel Legends-scale version. The imported Revoltech will pack quite a few more accessories than its domestic counterpart when it arrives on January 1 of 2014, however, coming equipped with multiple effect parts and hands.

What if Tony Stark's penthouse confrontation with Loki in The Avengers had been different? Or the Wasp had been in the movie during the final battle? What if a pivotal character in Iron Man 3 had died?
Well, now you can see those alternate scenes via some just-released animatics from artist Federico D'Alessandro. Check out the whole bunch -- three from Iron Man 3 and four from The Avengers -- after the jump (Warning: Spoilers for both movies follow if you still haven't seen them).
Want to watch Iron Man 3 but don't have the patience to either wait for its release on Blu-ray/DVD/digital on September 24... or sit through its 130 run time? YouTube channel Movieclips Trailers' original 16-bit video game style short could be for you (also, maybe a trip to your physician about a mild relaxant?). Zipping through the film's entire story in less than four minutes, the speed run style animation pixelates each plot point with the kind of efficiency you'd expect from a retro side scroller action game.
Tuesday gets tubular with tons of links after the jump.
