Hot Toys War Machine Mark II 12-inch Figure from ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ to be Hot Toys Exclusive
Hot Toys has just announced their next figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron – the Hot Toys War Machine Mark II 12-inch figure. This figure is the latest addition to Hot Toys’ MMS Diecast Series and is also the latest Hot Toys Exclusive to be announced.
Seeing this figure may give you a sense of Deja Vu, as essentially this very same figure was just recently sold when Iron Man 3 was dominating Hot Toys’ lineup. This figure however is slightly different from the first version Hot Toys did.
The movie-accurate War Machine Mark II Collectible Figure is crafted with great details and based on the image of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine Mark II in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It features a highly detailed head sculpt, metallic black and dark silver-colored armor with decals, LED light-up functions, rotatable machine gun, and a specially designed Avengers: Age of Ultron figure stand.
Reading that official description makes it sound exactly like the old version that Hot Toys has already released. I have compared both versions of the figure, and to me it appears just the slightest details on War Machine’s suit have been changed. Some of the suit’s decals are different, the paint may be slightly different color (thanks Marvel), and it also appears that War Machine’s suit features more of the wear and tear scratches.
If you already have the Iron Man 3 version of War Machine, I really see no reason to also add this figure to your collection. It is basically the exact same figure, with only the slightest changes.
It’s still unclear if Hot Toys is going to be offering this “exclusive” though Sideshow Collectibles. We would assume that Sideshow gets an allotment, as that’s how it’s been for many of the past Hot Toys Exclusives. Keep an eye on this page if you are looking to pre-order Don Cheadle as War Machine Mark 2.
