High-end collectible company Hot Toys is rolling with the Iron Man 2 theme, continuing their line with their spectacular War Machine figure.
This time baby
Did you miss out on Hot Toys’ War Machine the first time around? Well, if you did then you’ll be happy to know that the figure is back. Landing this time in the midst of the company’s Iron Man 2 figure-onslaught, Jim Rhodes is just as great as the first time his figure saw release.
Of course, if you know Hot Toys’ movie stuff, then you already know that they shoot for maximum authenticity. As such War Machine is looking like he just stepped off the silver screen. And yes, that includes a pretty fantastic head sculpt of actor Don Cheadle, as he appeared in the role.
Past that, War Machine has an alt-head (with closed visor) that lights up and interchangeable “battle damaged” parts. So you can create whatever look you like from the film. Leaning more towards the damaged parts too, there’s an awesome-looking base included that mimics the landscape from the final battle with Whiplash.
Here are the details:
- Individually hand-painted helmeted head sculpt with the likeness of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes in the movie, Iron Man 2
- An interchangeable helmeted head with LED light-up function (battery operated)
- Movie-accurate and highly detailed War Machine armor with die cast elements

- Six interchangeable hands including:

- One pair of repulsor-firing-palms (battery operated)
- Increased articulation within the waist armor, allowing for more flexible movement

- One interchangeable battle damaged back-mounted machine gun barrel
- Hidden compartment revealing detachable rocket on left shoulder
