Even though i wasnt crazy about the Mark V figure, i picked one up. I have to say it looks much better out of the package so i am glad i picked it up.
Good for you man. Yeah it's a little bit of a departure from what we know as Iron Man.
But the good thing is Iron Man is KNOWN for tinkering with his armor and making variants, so this isn't too far out of the realm.
About the Movie War Machine, I've only been able to find this at WM. And then only once. I saw 4-5 of them and should have picked up two. Man they went FAST. I want to get a second one to make both shoulder guns match (using the smaller ones).
I check how much I've spent on IM2 vs SW and man it's practically a tie. While Hasbro is losing money on me for SW, they are getting it right back for IM2 toys.
I wonder if this is their evil plan...LOL.
Seriously though we have seen in the last couple of years where Hasbro has opted to hold back SW in preference of other movie toy lines only to come back to SW once those other movie lines die down or fizzle out entirely.
I understand that thinking, but I'm not excited about it. I'd still much prefer new SW all year 'round.
