As much as I usually grumble (to myself) a little everytime Hot Toys announces another Iron Man variant, I have to admit – this one has me pumped! Iron Man/War Machine and Punisher in one? Hells yes, please!
Inspired by the Marvel Future Fight game (and a storyline in the comics), in which the Punisher gets his deadly hands on s War Machine suit of armor, this is a die-cast Iron Man figure based on his appearance in the game. It includes an unhelmeted Frank Castle sculpt, as well as highly-detailed helmeted head with LED light-up function, metallic black and silver colored armor with white skull motifs and weathering effects, LED light-up repulsors, a mini-gun on shoulder with an ammo belt, an articulated back- mounted shoulder cannon, attachable real-like thrust fire effect accessories and a specially designed figure stand.
I have a good feeling this is going to be HOT. It will definitely be my second Iron Man-based figure. Being die-cast and due to the extra sculpt, I expect this to come in around the $360 mark. Pre-order should be available to punish your wallet on your favorite retailers soon.

Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and – in his mind – justifies the ridiculous money he spends on these things. When he’s not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building seemingly endless custom figures.
