This summer one of the most popular Marvel superheroes returns to the silver screen with Iron Man 3. Featuring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, the film also sees the return of his stalwart ally James Rhodes played by Don Cheadle. And like last time when he got to suit up and join the action, "Rhodey" will once again be donning his own armor as the fearsome WAR MACHINE! After proving his ability to operate the powered suit once before, James too gets an upgraded armor in this film with a sleek new look, and you can get your hands on the incredible piece of technology as he joins the Iron Man 3 ARTFX Statue line alongside Stark's Mark 42!
In Iron Man 2 Rhodes joined Stark in battle with a specially designed armor suit that focused on heavy weaponry. In the sequel he utilizes the "Mark II" War Machine armor, just one of several new designs seen in the film. The upgraded suit (which also serves as the basis for the Iron Patriot design) trades in some of the bulk from the previous incarnation for a sleeker, but no less tough, look that's translated into a powerful ARTFX Statue. War Machine joins the fray as he hovers in the air next to a ruined pipeline, scanning the battlefield for potential threats. The armor suit features incredible detail with a sculpt that brings the intricate armor to life with all of its segmented panels, armor plates, shoulder-mounted weapon, and cool technological elements. Even the pose is striking as the armor seems to float in midair; with one knee raised up, fists clenched at his sides, and head angled down War Machine is impressively intimidating. Of course, his paint job adds to that as well... while Tony may prefer bright red and gold for his armor, the War Machine suit is a cold and somber black and silver with white lettering and symbols as well as electric pink details at its eyes and chest-mounted arc reactor.
War Machine is nearly 15 ½ inches tall (1/6th scale) and reaches almost 18 inches mounted on his incredible flying georama base. With pre-painted, snap-fit parts the ARTFX Statue is easy to assemble. Let War Machine guard your collection and display him alongside the other Iron Man 3 statues Mark 42!
