Before Tony Stark’s buddy, Jim “Rhody” Rhodes, gave his armor a patriotic paint job and became the Iron Patriot, it was a sleek black-and-grey design. The War Machine Mini-Bust captures the look of the heavily-weaponed suit of armor before Rhody took fashion tips from Captain America.
Stark might not be the easiest guy to be friends with but if getting a suit of armor like this is the reward for putting up with him, then sign me up. Of course, Rhody technically stole the armor but why get stuck on minor details?
The limited edition, individually numbered mini-bust features a highly-detailed, digitally sculpted figure that features dramatic lighting effects and a certificate of authenticity
The War Machine Mini-Bust will be available Q4 2013 but it can pre-ordered now for $80 at Gentle Giant.
