I personally won't mind this figure down the road, as I'm familiar with whatever Marvel V.S. Capcom video game it's from. Already got the 1990's Animated version, and I'm okay with it being a repaint. Though I have to admit, maybe having a Rohodes Head would of been nice as well, since the 1990's Animated Version gave us a Stark head.
If anything for anyone wanting to find a justified reason to put it in their Iron Man Hall Of Armoury, with the Black and Blue colour scheme, you can always re-purpose it as a sort of Stealth Armour version of the 1990's Modular Armour, instead of having it as a War Machine Armour. Yeah, I'm pretty sure the Modular Armour was never in Stealth related colours in the comics, but still a fun visual look if anything.
Mind you, if Hasbro Really Wants an Excuse to repaint the 1990's Modular Armour in different colours(Regardless if it's as Iron Man or as War Machine), there were other colour variations to the suit colours, as I could see them do so under the Gamerverse Banner, a Single Pack for the 1990's Iron Man Cartoon series, or as exclusives for Stores if they all of a sudden need their own Iron Man Variant figure(Suspect the Silver and Red Iron Man would end up as Target Exclusive, and the Blue and Yellow Iron Man would end up as a Wal-mart. Maybe 2 Tone Green War Machine as Walgreens). Though I'd hope they only do this mold only once every year or 2 years at least moving on, just to give us a bit of a break from the mold. Here are some links from a Wiki call Super Combo, with pics on Iron Man and War Machine's variant colours as reference:
I highly doubt I'd buy them all(Maybe the 2 Tone War Machine Green Armour, and the 2 of the Iron Man ones), but still a neat option for Hasbro if they really needed an excusive to re-release the mold again.
The colours are interesting, but it doesn't scream War Machine to me.
this figure isn't something I'd want, but I do like the Modular armor, and this looks good for what it is, I know this version of War Machine has been asked for by collectors since it's his MvC look, it's a simple re-paint but the colors are nice, and it has some cool effects, I just hope everyone who wants this in their collection is happy with the way this turned out, it was an easy pass for me, but with this and the Cannon IM, I hope we see some more MvC styled figures like just for the sake of them giving us Marrow, Blackheart, Shuma Gorath and a better go on Psylocke.
Wow, that blue almost looks like glass! This is actually pretty damn bad a$$!!
