Marvel Legends Punisher War Machine Found At Retail

Recommended Posts

While the figure has been rumored for sometime, we had know idea it was already going to start hitting shelves now, being it hasn't even been officially been announced by Hasbro. Cincy Nerdman found this figure at his local Gamestop. This should be a Fan Channel exclusive available everywhere that has carried the other Fan Channel exclusives, but if you want it right away might want to check your local Gamestop.

It looks to be the Civil War War Machine. I also think this is the last of the rumour list except the Vintage Deadpool figure to be revealed.

I was just about to show you guys this but JayC of course with the ultimate hand on the pulse, figure looks amazing as I expected and I had actually been wondering when this was going to see the light of day, sad I now need 3 War Machines in one year, but hey looks awesome and I play Future Fight (which is where this look came from)

It also seems to be based on the armor that appears on the cover of #218.

Well it didn't really sneak up. We knew it was coming for sometime. As for it showing up at Gamestop before it was even officially announced, I'm told Gamestop wasn't supposed to have released it already but just like that Grey Hulk thats how it seems to go more and more often.

So would this be considered a comic based figure or a fan service MCU War Punisher figure ?? Im still going to collect and claim it to be MCU anyway but just curious as to what everyone else thinks.

Technically I believe its billed as a video game based figure.

He looks nice! Might really have to get this one, since I don't have any of the previous War Machines from the MCU. Kinda like this, figures popping up randomly and "unannounced". Spices things a bit.

This look was drawn so inconsistently that I don't mind they used the War Machine MK III as the base, but I think the MK II would've been a better choice since that was one of the looks this armor took (not only in-story but in covers, like the one JayC posted above). But like I said, it was so inconsistent I don't mind the use of the MK III since it's a better figure than the MK II. Additionally, Future Fight adapted this armor using War Machine's MK III skin as the base, so maybe they're trying to recreate that look. However, the skull decal is different than in Future Fight, plus the game's logo isn't anywhere in the package (unlike the Punisher War Machine helmet).

All in all, it's a neat repaint. It only irks me slightly that this figure is going to be much easier and cheaper to find than the original MK III release.

WHAT? Who? Why wasn't I told about this? This is an outrage. Anyway this is a great looking figure. Not at the top of my list but I'm sure there are plenty of folks who want this fig. Thanks for the heads up.

They aren't going to make it, they already did.

These Fan Channel Exclusives are nothing but repaints. They couldn't do an accurate comic War Machine as a repaint.

You’d think hasbro would have announced this by now.

My guess they were waiting until next weeks NYCC but Gamestop jumped the gun by releasing it early.

Comic wise its based on this cover. But I believe that cover is based on the video game version which is different from the one in the actual comic stories. Not that it really matters that much. Its a repainted movie figure made to look like a comic/video game based figure.
