Hasbro to Release 9 ‘New’ Iron Man Action Figures

Hasbro recently announced it will be releasing 9 “new” Iron Man action figures in its series based on the movie. Of course all 9 appear to be nothing more than repaints and/or minor modifications of the previously released figures (which have already seen a number of minor and repaints). Still, this Battle Monger figure is pretty fraking cool,

Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2

Okay, I get it. The ever-talented Emily Blunt had been cast to play Black Widow in Iron Man 2, but someone exercised a clause in a previous contract to bump her to do a different movie. That’s how Holywood works. I get it.

But couldn’t they have gone out and hired an actress to replace Blunt instead of getting Scarlett Johansson? ZOMG WTF
