Art Asylum posted more images of the upcoming Marvel Select figures of the Mark 42 and War Machine.

Each will come with an armor bay diorama base and will exclusively be available at comic shops and specialty stores starting this summer. Tony and Rhodey are also up for preorder at EntertainmentEarth.com.
Hasbro sent us these pics of the new building block line of toys featuring the Joes’s and Cobras. The sets and individually packed figures are based off the original toy line, rather than the upcoming film. Many of these sets have begun to pop up at Toys R Us including Checkpoint Alpha, Ninja Temple Battle, Serpent Armor Strike, The Dragonfly XH-1 with Wild Bill, Cobra Armor Assault, the Thunderwave Jet Boat, the Battle Platform and the blind-packaged Kreons. Look for the Ghoststriker X-16 set, the Arashikage Dojo and another wave of Kreons in the fall.
