This was a Tamashii Web Exclusive release and is a redeco of the Iron Patriot figure which I’ve reviewed here so I’ll be skipping a lot of the details in this post.
The package has the same theme as the other Age of Ultron figures.
Package contents. They are identical to the Iron Patriot and you still have to deal with swapping the hand guards when you change the hands.
Overall views. It has a matte finish and a much simpler paint scheme compared to the gaudy Iron Patriot. It also lacks any stamp printed markings too.
Clear parts are used for the eyes and chest reactor but there are no coloured outlines around them.
The feet are die-cast as usual.
I need a better stand with grips that can actually hold up the weight of a figure.
“Yes! Now this is gonna be a good story.”
“Yep. If you live to tell it.”
Actually I need a second stand.
Here’s a side by side comparison with the Iron Patriot. I have no idea why War Machine is slightly taller. It appears that the neck joint is longer.
An extra comparison with Iron Man Mk 45.
War Machine managed a few seconds of screen time allowing Bandai to spit out an easy redeco. With a simple paint job there are pretty much no noticeable mistakes on the figure. I expect that there would be no more Avengers figures planned in future though.
I’ve been having a busy few weeks recently, with business trips across the country and even one that lasted 4 days last weekend. This figure was released over a week ago but I wasn’t around to collect my copy and churn out this review in time. I still have a rather newly released item to review and I hope I can make it to put it up next week.
