First Look: War Machine!

Take a first glimpse at the costume, thanks to the action figure!

 
When I first saw this, I was astounded by the likeness! The action figure looks exactly like Don Cheadle as War Machine, I was really impressed! While the image does not give us a whole heck of a lot of information regarding the costume in it's entirety (notice the blacked out image...it's kind of hilarious,) we do have an image of the color of his armor in addition to the likeness of his face, thanks to a preview in the latest Diamond Previews advance listings catalog, courtesy of Bleeding Cool. Is this how Don Cheadle will appear as War Machine in the Iron Man 2 film?
 
All I can say is, why so serious?

Awesome look. I think I still would've prefered Terrence Howard as War Machine than Don Cheadle. But I'm sure he'll do good.

I saw him in the leaked footage, let me just say I almost jumped out of my seat. :D I'm really not the biggest War Machine fan but that like 5 second glimpse looked like the coolest thing to come out of a comic film since the first time we saw Web-Swinging on the big screen.

Well, war is a serious matter.
I at first thought this was kind of goofy, but then I realized that this is most likely without the masking segment of the armor.
 
It seems sort of odd that Tony would be too happy about his technology being used as a literal weapon. That was the whole premise behind the first movie. He wanted to stop making weapons, but I'm sure this will be covered in the movie.

That IS funny how the image is blacked out but I can understand.  I don't mind, really, I don't want to get TOO spoiled by early images and trailers of this movie.  Not big on War Machine but I have a feeling he's going to be all sorts of kick-ass in IM2.  
Oh, and really, come on guys, let's get over Howard not being in the film.   Yes, I agree, Howard was cool as beans but let's give Cheadle his shot, I think he will do great.

The designer has released images of all his designs for war machine and he looks amazing!

 
 @Vance Astro:
Is that a joke? because how can you say that based on a small picture of a toy? You want to be a dick that badly?

1.No it's not a joke. 
2.You're the one being a dick for getting upset at someone's opinion. 
3.I can't see the body but I can see the face and it sucks... 
4.It's not about being a dick.Marvel has a history of having terrible looking action figures IMO and the face of this War Machine already leads me to believe this one is a lost cause. 
5.If you like the action figure and or think it will look good.That's you opinion.To assume someone is trying to be a d#ck for stating their opinion is childish and annoying.

Is the machine gun on his head with the action figure? That seems kind of dumb.

me too.  I like both actors, but something about Howard as war machine was great in the movie.  he just comes off more like a tuff military personality then Cheadle.
