The Big News from Iron Man 2.

January 21, 2010

Let’s get the biggest one out of the way first. Fin. Fang. Foom. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you have already caught a sniff of the exquisite easter egg included in the Iron Man 2 movie. Adi Granov created that magnificent concept art for Jon Favreau to ponder when the film was in development, and now we know. He Whose Limbs Shatter Mountains will be appearing in the new movie. For real.

That is Mike Mignola’s interpretation of Fin Fang Foom, immortalized forever on an actual Vs. System card. Could the massive monster possibly make the cut for Marvel Superstars cardboard kookiness? Only time will tell. Now for the swarmy stuff. Not quite as large, but much hotter.

Those figures from Diamond Select Toys were spoiled yesterday on io9. They are filling in a few blanks, but adding a gaping question mark. Who is the mystery figure on the top left? We leave that to your imagination, but one thing we know without a doubt. Justin Hammer’s Attack Drones are the characters appearing in the War Machine battle at the end of the Iron Man 2 trailer. Compare the images below for proof.

This is exhilirating news for the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game. It shows the delicious selection of robotic army dudes that will be featured in Iron Man 2. It opens the barn door wide open for the possibility of some heavy metal weenie swarms in our future. Big news indeed!



  1. Deck name: Hammer Time.
