Review | Hot Toys: Warmachine

Good day comrades!

We already saw the jaw dropping details of Ironman Mark VI on our previous review. This time, we will take a look at the even more complex figure rendition and details of Warmachine. Let’s get started.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (1)

Warmachine, when it comes to looks, is more technical and complex compared to Mark VI. There are a couple of comments though, one, the figure doesn’t have any armor replacement parts like the Mark VI. and two, the figure doesn’t have a diorama base.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (2)

Aside from the comments I’ve mentioned above, its still a remarkable figure.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (3)

Every micro details were recreated perfectly.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (5)

The figure appears to be much more “thicker” and “bulkier” compared to the Mark VI.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (6)

The overall figure is also well articulated. You can basically move every parts making dynamic poses possible. You still need to be careful though since there are limits on the movement of each parts.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (7)

The armor itself contains some of the infamous weaponry we saw from the movie (like the “EX-WIFE” lols). We will take a look at those later in the review.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (8)

Overall paintwork of the figure is just outstanding. The figure is clearly made out of high quality plastic, but because of the overall paint job, it looks like its not.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (9)

Like the Mark VI, the mask is also retractable.

The chin of the figure is also articulated. You can basically move it up or down.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (12)

The torso of the figure has also a pretty complex movement mechanism. When you try to bend the figure forward or backward, each “plates” on the torso will contract or expand depending on the direction of the movement. The articulation is just amazing.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (13)

A more closer look at the individual “plates” on the torso.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (14)

Details on the legs are recreated perfectly. The legs are divided into 3 seperate joints for dynamic movement.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (15)

Feet are also articulated individually.

Armor weather effects are nicely done. It looks really natural and realistic.

Decals on the armor are also perfectly recreated on the figure.

The AI controlled chain gun that targets enemy threats on its own. Its the signature main weapon of Warmachine even in the comic books.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (27)

A closer look at the chain gun barrel.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (28)

Fully detailed mount of the chain gun. Its also articulated and can be moved and rotated 360 degress.

More detailed shots of the chain gun.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (30)

The super detailed ammo belt.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (31)

A closer look at the armor’s back compartment. Just look at those details. Even the screws are sculpted perfectly.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (32)

Retractable thrusters at the back of his legs.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (33)

Some detailed shot of the thrusters.

A closer look at Warmachine’s arc reactor. Yeah, its LED powered.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (36)

Fingers are also articulated. You can basically do anything with his fingers lols.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (37)

Let’s take a look when we retract the mask.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (38)

I’m really not sure if he really looks like Don Cheadle from the movie. It really depends on the angle of the shot.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (39)

Looks more like Don Cheadle in this shot.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (40)

The articulated chin guard. Also, inside both his shoulders are some of the weapons he used in the movie. One of them is the infamous super missile….

Hot Toys: Warmachine (41)

The “EX-WIFE” :))

Eyes, chest, and both his palms are all LED powered, meaning, they all light up.

Hot Toys: Warmachine (50)

The switches for the lights are well hidden. It actually blends with the technical details of the figure so you wouldn’t notice it at first glance.

Love that red eyes. Specially when lights are off. I’m just not sure about the color of his arc reactor. Isn’t it suppose to be red orange not white?

    If you could e-mail me with a few suggestions on just how you made your blog look this excellent, I would be grateful.

  6. Victor | Fri, 2012/04/13 at 5:15 PM

    hmmm…from the colors, it really looks plasticky. I mean I know these figures are all made of plastic, but this one looks really really plasticky. From the movie, War Machine looks a bit more darker… Im deciding between this or the Milk edition…whats your take on this man?

    • Otakumouse | Fri, 2012/04/13 at 7:50 PM

      Maybe its because of the lighting I used? I also have the milk edition and I’m currently doing its figure review ;) I’ll make sure to include some updated shots of the original War Machine to help you decide :)

  7. Victor | Fri, 2012/04/13 at 11:19 PM

    Thanks!! Hehehe, I shall wait patiently till then :D

    • Otakumouse | Sun, 2012/04/15 at 9:29 PM
