Iron Man 2 Movie - War Machine ArtFX Statue from Kotobukiya
Following on the amazing ArtFX Statues celebrating the titular hero of the first "Iron Man" film comes the second of two great additions from "Iron Man 2." Hot on the heels of the Iron Man Mark VI statue is Tony Stark's ally James Rhodes in the armor known as War Machine! 

Newcomer to the franchise Don Cheadle plays the character alongside Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark.  A longtime friend of Stark's, James Rhodes was a U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel working for the state department as a liaison to Stark Industries in its arms development capacity.  Beyond his official role, Rhodes is a good friend of the eccentric billionaire and one of the few people Stark can count on in an emergency.  Immediately recognizing the versatility and power (not to mention fun) of the Iron Man suits, Rhodes was destined to don a suit of his own.

In "Iron Man 2" Rhodes gets his wish when he commandeers and upgrades a special armor that focuses on heavy weaponry.  The War Machine armor is bulkier than the Iron Man suits, with large armor plates and reinforced sections on the hips, arms, and torso.  Its offensive capability is obvious from the massive gatling-style cannon on its left shoulder, as well as the twin submachine guns mounted on its forearms.  War Machine is posed in a martial stance, bringing his right forearm gun to bear as the shoulder cannon tracks additional targets.  Unlike the resplendent red and gold of Stark's advanced suits, War Machine is much more somber in sleek, no nonsense black and silver with red highlights around the eyes and chest-mounted arc reactor.

Sculpted by Erick Sosa, War Machine stands nearly 11 2/3inches tall atop a cylindrical Repulsor Transmitter base in matching colors.  Improving on the previous Iron Man ArtFX Statues, War Machine has upgraded LED lights in the eyes, chest, fists and base!  Each ArtFX Statue is constructed of high-quality PVC.  Don't miss out on one of the most highly anticipated armor suits from "Iron Man 2," and the perfect complement to the Iron Man Mark VI Fine Art Statue!

Look for the War Machine ArtFX Statue in November, with a suggested retail price of $119.99.

Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as billionaire industrialist Tony Stark, aka the super hero Iron Man in this sequel to the 2008 blockbuster. RDJ, Paltrow, Cheadle and Rockwell are joined by Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Mickey Rourke as Whiplash. Jon Favreau once again takes up the directorial reins for Marvel's armored avenger.

"Iron Man 2" is one of a continuing slate of films being produced by Marvel Studios based on the Marvel characters, including "Thor" on May 6, 2011, "The First Avenger: Captain America" on July 22, 2011 and "Marvel Studios' The Avengers" on May 4, 2012.

      This statue is fairly decent, but if I am going to buy any Iron Man 2 representation of War Machine, (one my all time favorites I might add), It will be Hot Toys 1/6 scale figure due out in June or July I believe. It is amazingly accurate to the movie and awesome.
