war machine comic Toys for Geeks: War Machine Collectible Figure

When geeks are kids we love to play with toys from our favorite comics, cartoons or what have you. When we grow up, we still want to play with those toys but for some reason society frowns upon us doing so in public.  If I walk into Toys ‘R Us and start looking at the Barbie Dolls without my daughter, then I get some really funny looks. Of course, maybe I shouldn’t seat all the dolls together at a table and make them have a “conversation” – but I digress.

So how do geeks everywhere continue to buy and play with dolls after grade school? By calling them “collectible figures” and paying twice the price, of course.

“Collectible figure” maker Hot Toys has released their next series of figures from their Iron Man 2 line, which boasts a very impressive looking War Machine figure. Thanks to a heads up from /Film, we’ve posted some pictures and a description of the figure below for your perusing enjoyment. Feel free to “geek out” along with me.

“Hot Toys is proud to present the 1/6th scale War Machine collectible figure from the Iron Man 2 movie. The movie-accurate War Machine collectible is highly detailed and fully deployed, specially crafted based on the image of Don Cheadle as the well-received character War Machine in the movie, highlighting the well equipped armor, light-up functions and weapons.”

This all looks pretty cool and I notice that War Machine has both hand and chest repulsors, which means we will most likely see those firing off at some point during the film. I assume War Machine will employ those devices when he runs out of bullets?

By the way, did anyone else find this detachable head with Don Cheadle’s face on it extremely creepy?

What do you think about the incredible detail Hot Toys has included in their War Machine figure and would you consider adding it to your collection?

  1. that looks nothing like don cheadle (too light).

  2. I think it does look a bit like him, unless you're referring to the skin color, which I agree but you have take in consideration your monitor and how the pic was taken. Until it reaches your screen it could have gone through a couple of devices altering its color a bit.

    And Paul, you think that's creepy? You haven't seen the the head Hot Toys announced and did a while back, now that was creepy. I laughed when I first saw a poster commenting it on a blog “OMG Hot Toys you are El Diablo this is too REEEAAL”.

    By the way I've also posted some days ago about iron man 2 war machine action figure 12 inch, check it out as well.

  3. Looks sorta like Tiger woods, Lmao. So thats what celebs do in Sex Rehab

  4. hey at least kids will like it…

  5. hey at least kids will like it…

  6. Look exactly like Cheadle, except they lightened his skin. WTF is that all about? Don is darker than Wesley Snipes!-okay, as dark. It’s a racist move. Yeah, I went there. Simply because they did. I’m surprised only one person on this thread pointed it out when it’s so blatant.
