Back By Popular Demand: Hot Toys To Reissue Iron Man 2’s War Machine

This Hot Toys release was something I had looked forward to for a long time. Iron Man is cool and all, but in the 1990s, I was a huge fan of War Machine. The gunmetal gray and steel look of the heavily armed suit was so ’90s.

Ghost Rider and War Machine were what the heavy metal kids were into. That and stealing cigarettes from the Pick Quick. Hardcore!

Sadly, War Machine was so popular upon his first release that finding him was almost as difficult as finding the 1989 Joker from Hot Toys. Maybe this signals a trend with Hot Toys, and they’ll re-release some of the most popular 1/6th scale figures.

Just look at how awesome Rhodes looks in that suit.

Achieved astonishing popularity in its first release, Sideshow and Hot Toys are excited to reissue the original War Machine Sixth Scale Collectible Figure from Iron Man 2 for fans who have missed their opportunity earlier! The heavily weaponized War Machine armor is always one of the signature suits that appeared in the MCU.

Crafted with incredible details, the over 32.5cm tall figure features a helmeted head sculpt of James Rhodes with likeness of Don Cheadle, interchangeable LED light-up helmet, movie-accurate proportion and detailed armor design, metallic black and silver colored armor, interchangeable battle damaged armor parts on head, shoulder, chest, and back, articulated back-mounted machine gun, interchangeable battle damaged back-mounted machine gun barrel, hidden compartments on shoulders to reveal weapons, LED light-up functions, and a specially designed diorama figure stand based on the final showdown with Whiplash Mark II in Iron Man 2.

War Machine can pre-ordered right now through Sideshow Collectibles. However, this figure isn’t expected to ship until sometime between July and September of 2022. The upside to this is that it allows you to take advantage of Sideshow’s Flexaway program. That’s handy if you don’t have the $375 upfront.

What other figures from Hot Toy’s past would you like to see re-released? Let us know in the comments.
