IRON MAN 2 Movie Line
IRON MAN 2 — IRON MAN HELMET
In 2010, kids can slip on the IRON MAN 2 IRON MAN HELMET to hide their identity from their evil adversaries. The helmet is designed in IRON MAN’s signature style and features a variety of electronic lights and sounds, including data correspondence from JARVIS, his trusty computer companion. Fans will especially enjoy the helmet’s slow release visor that lends remarkable authenticity to this fun role-play toy.
IRON MAN 2 — ARC CHEST LIGHT
As fans know, TONY STARK’s armored suit’s technology hinges on drawing its power from the one-of-a-kind arc reactor in his chest. Now, all kids can pretend to draw their IRON MAN role-playing energy from the light-up IRON MAN 2 ARC CHEST LIGHT, which features power-up sounds and easily clips onto shirts.
IRON MAN 2 — 3 ¾” MOVIE ACTION FIGURES
Recreate the action and excitement of the IRON MAN 2 movie with Hasbro’s all-new

And not only do the figures feature excellent articulation, they also include a display stand and collectible “Armor Cards.” Each set of cards displays different parts of an IRON MAN suit – by overlaying the cards on each other, fans can create more than 46 different suits of armor!

As part of the brand’s 75th anniversary celebration, MONOPOLY is giving players the chance to choose how long they want to enjoy a game with MONOPOLY U-BUILD, a new concept in MONOPOLY game play. Using hexagonal property spaces that snap together, players build a game track that creates a custom game board and determines the length of play. Decide to use the Starter Track for a 30-minute game before dinner, or try the Classic Track for a 60-minute game during family game night for longer-lasting fun. Once you’ve perfected these tracks, move onto the Pro or Freestyle Tracks for the ultimate gaming challenge. In MONOPOLY U-BUILD you choose, you build, you play!
U-BUILD CONNECT 4
U-BUILD CONNECT 4 combines the family favorite of CONNECT 4 with customizable U-BUILD bricks that create a unique game experience every time the game is played. Start by building a grid using U-BUILD bricks that snap into the game unit. Once the grid is built, players drop their red and yellow checkers into the top of the game and watch as the checker bounces down into a row. Add U-BUILD bumper arms to the top of the grid to help to steer a checker into a chosen row in your attempt to get four in a row. Bumper bricks can be used to assist a score or used as a defensive move to keep the opponent from scoring. Drop the checkers and see where they land – slide, bump and block your way to victory!
U-BUILD BATTLESHIP GAME
Change your game with the U-BUILD BATTLESHIP Game! A new way to play the classic game of BATTLESHIP, in U-BUILD BATTLESHIP players can build and customize their fleet of ships, including Battleships, Aircraft Carriers, Destroyers, Submarines and PT Boats, and stack weapons on the ships to increase the power of their hits. Destruction is the name of the game as players work to blow their opponent’s ships “out of the water” by firing shots across the battle zone, while keeping their ships hidden and safe. Sink all of the “enemy’s” ships to win!
