As previously mentioned, the
Iron Man line was canceled due to poor sales. Series IV barely made
it into wide circulation before the line was no more. However, before
Toy Biz had decided to scrap the entire line, one final assortment
was shown. This series has become one of the most talked about groups
of unreleased figures ever. Fans of the line clamored for a release
of these figures somewhere (such as the exclusive Hall of Fame Series
for example). Jesse Falcon of Toy Biz has said that they are looking
for an appropriate venue for the Iron Man V set, but that they would
be repainted in some manner.
Rather than just let the Series V molds
fade into oblivion quietly Toy Biz revamped the bodies and armors
and created new characters out of them for the Spider-Man: Techno
Wars and X-Men: Mutant Armor series.
