Today we look at the Iron Men from the Hulkbuster Series. Well, hello there, War Machine we have already seen. Nothing new here. We saw it as Iron Patriot, featuring Col. James Rhodes, in the Iron Monger Series.
Same figure with the blaster on the shoulder. He is missing a bit of good articulation in the ankles, which makes it hard to pose.
He comes with an alternate head, with the mask up, so you can see Rhodes face. It is not the best face out there, but it works. I would love for Hasbro to figure out this dead eye problem. We have seen it in the Star Wars figures too. I had a really hard time getting the head to pop on.
I think with this version of War Machine, we are ready to start playing Civil War.
Marvel Now Iron Man:
Um, Iron Man, you are tiny. Something went terribly wrong here. He is half a head shorter than War Machine.
This version of Iron Man is black and gold repaint of Iron Man 2. What we ended up with was fairly comic accurate, but overall, we have come a long way past these days. It is a fine figure for the shelf. Nice to see a black Iron Man amongst a shelf of red, but we have seen many better Iron Man figures in recent years.
He is a necessary figure to bulid Hulkbuster, and he looks fine on the shelf, but I don’t think he will be coming out to play very often.
