ItsAllTrue Review: Iron Man 2
– War Machine & Mark V Armor

I haven’t talked much about War Machine’s left shoulder cannon. Instead of having the missile battery, WM has another larger gun that serves as his pack-in missile launcher. It looks okay, but it could be considered distracting. I don’t keep it on my figure when in display. It can fire one of two missiles and also has a spot to plug in the ammo belt. Both guns easily pop off their pylons and can be placed on either side.

Every figure in the line includes a base and three “armor” cards. The bases are standard grey rectangles an extension that goes behind the figure and holds the armor cards. The cards have some play value, but I haven’t really sat down to mix and match them. The chest piece card is printed on white stock while the other two cards are transparent. Basically, if you have several figures you can mix n’ match the cards to create your own armor. As I said in my earlier review, each combination of three cards creates a unique 9-digit string and tells you to go to The movie is in its second week, the toys have been out for over a month, and yet that URL still simply redirects to which makes no mention of the cards. I believe the 9-digit string could be used on this proposed website to recreate the armors digitally, but for now they’re just a neat pack-in item.

So far, everything I’ve picked up from the Iron Man 2 movie line has been excellent or almost great. That’s exactly what we have here. War Machine is an excellent figure with a sharp design, ton of detail, great articulation, and plenty of play value. The Mark V armor, if his paint was done a little cleaner and maybe with a better eye for detail, would be equally exciting. As it is, he’s still a good figure. I like the sculpt, the way he moves, and the briefcase as a fun accessory. He just looks a little less cool standing next to War Machine.

For now, I think these will be the only Movie Series figures I pick up. At least until some new figures hit the shelves.

  1. The War Machine is a great figure even with the shoulder BFG. I’m on the fence about picking up the omega/green one.

  2. Nice review. I think I’m addicted to these little guys. Can’t wait to find anything from wave two!

  3. Great review! I’m glad to see more funny pictures, but you have to quit tempting me with these!

  4. after seeing the movie, i’m amazed at the lack of drone figures… seem like such no brainers, and could have been offered in army builder packs too… and of course, i won’t even mention the six inch… i’d have done a fleet of drones just on principal.

    listen closely hasbro… for a fleet of 6 inch drones, i would have skipped the motuc purchase this month (and maybe next month too) and given you more of my money… hope you hasbro boys are paying attention.

    1. The 4″ drones will be slotted into future assortments judging from site pre-orders. We’ll hold off until the Hasbro announcements for the checklist updates though.

  5. Have to admit Hasbro have hooked me into a scale I didn’t want with the Moviefigures – War Machine and the Mark II, IV AND VI just rock. Will have to look out for the Sinatra WM now, didn’t realise there was a different one before now.
