Although Robert Downey Jr.'s time playing Iron Man in the MCU has seemingly come to an end, his legacy as the character continues to make an impact on the franchise's future. Marvel Studios is already paying tribute to that legacy in various ways, particularly with shows like Don Cheadle's Armor Wars and Dominique Thorne's Ironheart joining the fray in the coming years.
Fans are also adamant about celebrating Iron Man's time in the MCU in any way they see fit through conversations about the MCU's past, present, and future. From the debate about Iron Man 3 being a Christmas movie to Easter eggs in projects that have debuted since Tony Stark's death in Avengers: Endgame, the MCU's OG Avenger remains a constant presence looming over the story.
Iron Man also helped Marvel Studios subsequently advance its merchandising acumen, which continues to grow with each new MCU entry to release. Now, reports are sharing that fans will have a chance to obtain some Iron Man-centric material that should provide plenty of entertainment upon its release.
Hall of Iron Man Suits in LEGO Form
According to Promobricks, a new LEGO set will reportedly be released that depicts Tony Stark's Hall of Armor, which was shown in 2010's Iron Man 2 and 2013's Iron Man 3. The set is listed for 90 Euros, approximately $100.71 USD, and consists of 496 pieces in total.
The set will feature eight displays, which can even be joined with LEGO's past Hall of Armor sets. The set also includes an armor testing platform, Tony's work station, a column drill, Tony's Audi R8 Spyder, and even possibly the DUM-E robot from all three solo movies.
The set will also come with minifigures for Ivan Vanko as Whiplash, Rhodey in his first War Machine suit, Pepper Potts, Nick Fury, Iron Man's Mark IV armor, the Mark XXV "Striker" armor, and the Mark 85 armor from Avengers: Endgame. The outlet notes that the latter suit could be a placeholder though.
Also listed is a buildable Baby Groot set, which will reportedly retail for 55 Euros (approx $61.54 USD) and is made up of 476 pieces. The fan-favorite character from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will have fully fleshed out limbs and a rotating head, also coming with a small plaque and a built version of the Awesome Mix Vol. 2 cassette tape.
Both of these sets will be available on June 1, 2022.
Iron Man & Groot Ready to Build
Iron Man's Hall of Armor is one of the most visually stunning set pieces in MCU history, which fits perfectly with Tony Stark's personality as a man and as a hero.
Shown in-depth during both of Downey's Iron Man sequels, fans got to see teases for dozens of suits and incredible technology throughout the space in Tony's mansion. Never one to rest on his laurels, the original Avenger always looked to develop new kinds of suits and weaponry, much of which is featured in this set via mini-figures or buildable sets.
Fans will also have the fun opportunity to enjoy their own version of Baby Groot, who remains one of the MCU's most popular characters after only appearing in one movie almost five years ago. Seeing this tiny tree come to life in a nearly 500-piece set will allow fans to relive some of the best moments from his youthful time when he was still quite a force alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy.
For Iron Man fans and Groot fans alike, these two sets will provide plenty of entertainment as the MCU's LEGO collection grows even more expansive.
