Nah, it's cool that you liked this figure, Ben, but I'm just not feeling it. The sheer size (and the enhanced detail it affords) is tempting, but there are just too many issues. While I think they nailed Cheadle's face (and expression! :P ), the mask of the helmet is off: it's like the "mouth" (the bottom) comes down way too low. Also, in some shots, his neck actually looks too long. And lastly, the ommission of the barrel detail at the end of the minigun, friggin' missile launcher, and ball-jointed shoulders are pretty inexcusable.

Kinda sad missed opportunities here. Great review, though, and thanks for the refresher on WM's comic origin!

Honestly I don't like the proportions on the DST ones as much. They seem too tall and lanky, and while that may suit the design of the Iron Man suit, I feel like War Machine should particularly be bulky in comparison.

It's still a nice figure though, good review Ben.

If you look at the poster:

I think you'll find that the proportions are pretty spot on. It has all the right bulk in the chest, upper and lower arms, and legs where the armor was added. The neck might be a tad long, but as a figure that really helps. The figure is really hefty and bulky in person, but still manages to be quite posable thanks to some really good design work.

Looking at the picture

Looking at the picture comparison, yeah I can see what you mean. I think it was that long neck that was making me think the entire figure was more slender in general. I guess the neck's the main thing that gets me then. It does look good, there's no denying that.
