My lovely lady went on Ebay this morning and won me this. When I was around 8 or 9 I used to go to a friend of the family's house before and after school till my folks finished work to play video games with their three boys who me and my older brother went to school with. Their Dad was big on Marvel comics and the house was full of boxes of comics, as well as all the shelves jam packed with figures and models. Some were even in their original packages! How many people can say they've seen Issue #1 of X-Men and Spiderman? A fair few, and I'm one of them! Back to my point they had an Iron Man and this guy, and at the time I had no idea who he was. They educated me on who War Machine was and I even got to read a few issues. I was hooked and he quickly became my favourite super hero and still is to this very day. Ive managed over the years to collect every issue and even other issues the War Machine character has appeared in and even a few figures, but I could never find this guy until today, Still in its box this fella came out in like 94 and I'm soo hyped on it! Thank you Naomi, you truly are the shit. X
But its doesnt stop there, for you see there are other figures out there and unfortunately I used to own one of these but being a kid I played with it for hours on end and im pretty sure its lost now, next im on the hunt for these!
Gotta keep searching!
