War. What is it good for?

Armand Saturday, September 17, 2011
"So you wanna be a War Machine?" said Stark to Rhodes right before they blew the house up. I loved how John Favreau squeezed that into the movie without making it corny or forced upon. I was all giddy when I heard that in the cinema like any fanboy would.

When Hot Toys launched the first line from their Ironman line fans and collectors alike were astounded by the quality and effort that was put into making the figures. There were a few hiccups here and there like how the coloring on the Mark III was more maroon than Hot Rod Red and the problem with the torso being unable to bend or flex more freely.

But with the new Ironman 2 line, Hot Toys managed to solve both these problems brilliantly I might add. The Mark IV and VI showcased the craftsmanship of Hot Toys and reminded the public why they are indeed the best in the business.

War Machine was the first figure released from the series and as always Hot Toys delivers on the goods. He might not be as flexible as the rest of the lot but he was built that way. A tank. A big fat frigging cybernetic-no bullshit-kick you in the ass-exoskeleton tank :)

I can't wait for the rest of the figures to arrive; The Mark V, Mark II Armor Unleashed, and the highly anticipated Iron Monger!

Hey Des, I haven't started on War Machine yet.

You damaged the screws? Aiyo la have you tried using pliers instead? The small nosed pliers should do the trick.

I'll let you know if I'm successful with unscrewing his head LOL!
