These helped to ensure that the legendary Marvel Comics superhero became a massive hit with a whole new generation of children.
Created back in 1963, Iron Man is the most powerful, high-tech superhero in the world. When billionaire inventor Tony Stark puts on his armoured suit, he becomes the invincible Iron Man, fighting for justice with his scientific genius and his ability to fly faster than a jet plane! With Hasbro signed up as the toy master licence holder, their ranges of Iron Man toys literally fly off retailerís shelves and warehouses.
As well as a range of movement-activated action figures, other terrific Iron Man toys include masks, dressing up costumes, figurines, chest lights and an assortment of vehicles to fit the smaller scale action figures.
