Name: Ironman and Captain America New York Toy Fair 2012 Exclusive
MSRP: N/A (not for sale to public)
If you are one of the lucky folks who managed to go to the 2012 New York Toy Fair, you probably got a pair of these minifigures from their giveaway. These minifigures are even more rarer compared to the San Diego/New York Batman and Green Lantern Minifigures as only 125 have been produced.
They are so rare that the minifigures are not even listed on Bricklink. Sometimes, there would be 1 rare listing on eBay and that would usually end up with bids well over $500 (even for used).
What is so special about these minifigures? Are they really that special? Let's find out in this review. :)
Up close front shot at the two LEGO Superheroes Minifigures from New York Toy Fair 2012. It appears that these minifigures are indeed different from the regular minifigures you get in the Avengers sets! From what I've been told, these minifigures represents the comic versions of the Marvel characters.

The New York Toy Fair 2012 LEGO Ironman Minifigure. The most obvious differentiation from the regular versions is the head! Here, you get a regular minifigure head with helmet painting. In the regular versions, you get a flesh head which is covered by a helmet (similar to a Clone Trooper). Its definately nice to have this special version one as it represents a "classic LEGO minifigure".
The New York Toy Fair 2012 LEGO Captain America Minifigure. I have to say, this is the cream of the crop out of the 2 minifigures. He has a very detailed torso and his head looks awesome too! Very cool minifigure to have. Final Verdicts
Both of these minifigures are seriously cool looking. The minifigures are almost nearly impossible to find even from Bricklink or eBay. As I mentioned before, they do fetch for huge sums of money if they are listed (I'm sure $500+ is a bit crazy for a typical LEGO fan). Fortunately, we do have a LEGO sponsored contest
where you can win these minifigures for free! The contest runs for the entire month of June 2012. Also special thanks to LEGO for providing me an extra pair of these minifigures to do the review.
