Are you talking about this one?:http://thetoymuseum.blogspot.com/2010/12/iron-man-2-movie-series-war-machine-12.html
I unfortunately only bought the comic series and not the other, although I always considered it
. The Power Charge Armor does resemble the movie series figure, although I think the earlier movie series has full shoulder rotation, the concept armor does not(the other concept armor WM has full rotation though).
I want to actually thank you man, while doing some research and ending up at the above link, I had the idea to use the ball peg on the concept armor and attach the Artillery Armors cannon. I just wish there was a way to switch the chest light on without pushing on the head.
Ah...I didn't see he had a chest light. And yes, the first movie series War Machine does have full shoulder rotation, but the shoulder pads kind of inhibit its use.
I just wish they would make a perfect toy, how hard can it be.
I think all the IM2 War Machines have shoulder pad issues. I've got the movie and comic suits, as well as the larger one (what is he, 6"?) and the pads get in the way on all of them. Short of molding them to the shoulder joint and not making them hinged at the shoulder is probably the only way to fix this issue, but it won't look as nice then.
I don't seem to have an issue with the shoulder pads. I think the Artillery Armor War Machine has great articulation, even with the shoulder pads. Being on a hinge they easily lift out of the way
I have sadly been drawn back to TJMaxx to buy more super heroes.
My latest excursion netted me Iron Man 2 Concept Series War Machine: Munitions Armor and Destroyer from the Thor line(my only from that toy line).
I have yet to explore War Machine, but I love me some Destroyer.
I've wanted him for a while and decided to go for it. If anything to help
move the stock to pave the way for more great finds down the road.
Destroyer seems like a giant among the other figures.
He towers above Wolverine:Origins Weapon X
His light up gimmick is so much nicer being located on the abdomen rather that having to push down the head.
A very nice figure(he too needs better shoulder joints though).
I also picked up a Marvel Universe Psylocke from Wal-mart. She was being clearanced off for: $5.00
