Over the years, James "Rhodey" Rhodes has been Tony's personal
pilot, business partner and hand picked successor (as both head of Stark
Enterprises and as Iron Man), but more importantly, he's been a close
and valued friend. Rhodey took on the role as the armored super hero War
Machine after Stark resumed his career as Iron Man.
War Machine was a good choice for the first series, especially if
he took the place of an Iron Man variant. Not only was he a popular
character at the time, but he had never had a figure before and his
design is pretty darn cool. As far as the figure goes, it's hard to
go wrong with this look. Silver is much easier to replicate in plastic
than gold, so this armor tended to look better as a combination of vac-metallized
pieces and plastic base. He has strange little "exhaust vents"
on his shoulders that rotate back behind him.
