Spider-Man, Catwoman, and Iron Man will be the newest inductions to Square-Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai line and are some of the most exciting designs to grace the line. If that wasn't enough, fans can look forward to a Final Fantasy Creatures Kai set (featuring Siren, one of the Bahumuts, etc), the recently announced PAK Hatsune Miku, many historical Batmans, and so much more.

The major highlight here might be the VPAK Spider-Man, which sports what may be a very neat armored design. That certainly doesn't take anything away from Catwoman, however, whose crazy design I didn't even recognize at first. Oh, and what's that? An awesome set of optional attachments for VPAK Iron Man? Could there really be this much want all in one place?

Be sure to check out the gallery for a closer look.

[UPDATE: New image]

Hidemi Matsuzuka has tweeted two images of Square-Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai Iron Man. This marks the first Marvel character released in the Variant Play Arts Kai line.

Square-Enix has always excelled at producing armored characters/robots and the VPAK Iron Man is a neat example. Although the design isn't drastically different from versions of Iron Man that we've seen in the past, the figure sports a black deco (in addition to his usual gold/yellow and red combo) and his arc reactor is now a crystal. It's both very Iron Man and yet fairly distinct. Although I'm not as much of an Iron Man fan in recent years (the explosion of popularity combined with the inundation of merchandise has curbed much of my enthusiasm), I think I like this design.

The tweets don't list where these photos were taken, but I'm guessing (from the timing) that it was probably at NYCC so we may have our own coverage soon.

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kaiyodo's Mega Sofubi Advance

Did I just completely miss this whole arm of Kaiyodo's corpus? I'm always awed and amazed (sometimes not in the best way) by super-huge toys. In this case, I definitely got a good impression, though. As I turned the corner, I...

Yes, there's a third Revol Mini. Yes, it's an Iron Man.

Revol Mini is a line that isn't even out yet, but it's already starting to feel old to me. Yes, there was a new version of Snake. Then it was coupled with Kinnikuman, which while he is a great figure, it's one that has been d...

Tomopop Review: Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42 + Hall of Armor photo
Tomopop Review: Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42 + Hall of Armor
by Andres Cerrato

It is very easy to make Iron Man toys. Given all of the armor possibilities, it's a goldmine for companies to drill through. Good Smile Company already found a lot of success with their first Nendoroid of Tony Stark's armors, the Iron Man Mk VII from The Avengers. After a quick sell-through, it's time to hit the mine again, this time delving into Iron Man 3's premier armor, the Mark 42.

Let's find out if you'll actually want to add this to your Hall of Armor in today's review!
