Hot Toys War Machine Special Version (not Milk) MMS166 - video and photo review

I came across this figure at a local toy fair and could have a look at it (brand new). This War Machine Special Edition was never on my initial must buy list but i saved some budget this month not picking up other recent releases, so I decided to add this to my ever growing Iron Man Hot Toys collection.The paint scheme is really unique which was my main buying reason.

Check out some photos and a video review. I also included a comparison to the original War Machine:




An important information if you consider buying this: there are 2 versions of this figure. One is the normale Special edition (this here) and then there is the "Milk" edition which gives you an additional stand with a Milk logo on it (from what I know Milk is a magazine in Hong-Kong). The milk version is even more rare and will cost you an additional 100 - 200 USD, and beware that you don't get fooled with eBay offers that want to sell you a Milk version which are in reality just normal special editions, so have an eye out for this. The normal special edition is rising in terms of pricing too, currently mid 2015 you have to calculate around 500 - 600 USD - which is heavy for a repaint.
