War Machine Mark III w/ Tony Stark.
This is an unmanned unit designed by Stark for conflictive areas / warzones.
The unit has two main propulsors at the back, and a stabilizer turbine in the middle because of the weight of the unit. Deployment of the unit with an aircraft is required for long distances, as the unit is not designed for long flights, the intention is to deploy it at the area and leave as soon as possible.

The unit is activated by satellite and long distance signal, and the unit's receiver is located within the chest shell for protection, because if it is damaged, the unit may not respond. In any case, a emergency mechanism allows the unit to fire a energy shield and search for shelter, it can also reach critical mass and leave a lot of mess around...

The weaponry includes one M-54 gusset 50mm rounds machine gun mounted on right arm which can also fire concusive energy blasts when required, an energy disruptor on the left hand which fires energy-related blasts; it can also project small energy shields surrounding the unit for a small period of time (30secs). The right shoulder cannon fires energy balls which are napalm-based, this works excellent for buildings and enemy vehicles. The other cannon is a rocket launcher. The head can also project laser beams from the eyes. The chest holds the classic repulsor blast, and two main halogen reflectors are housed on the sides.

The body is made of a vibranium-unknown metal alloy with an outer titanium mesh to withstand direct impact of missiles and rockets. Legs and arms share the same composition, and as this unit does not require a person inside, the alloy thickness is greater, and life support and other systems found on other armors have been removed, thus making this unit far more resistant.

The base figure is a Spiderman Classics Beetle, I removed the head, all blister-like features were removed, shoulder pads and the knees were cut to straight up the legs, as you know, the figure does not stand straight, giving the impression is hunchbacked. The shoulders rockets come form the Kraven bolo trap and Cyber Spidey launcher. The machine gun and the rear propulsors are from HoM ironMan. I cut the middle finger to make two fingers, so the unit has 5 fingers, but later I regreted thatm since there was no intention for a person to man the unit. The cool thing is that I found out the the HoM IronMan head is actually clear plastic, so when mounted on Beetle's neck, it would all glow red, so I just painted black and silver and the eyes glow red!!!!. I unscrewed the body, removed the wings-moving action device in it , painted all a lot easier because it was separated, then mounted all together again and there you go. It was all painted with oil-based paint. I know I would have done a far better job using putty or epoxy or something, but I just ran out of that, and here at my city, well, those things are never sold here. Can you tell me some putty / epoxy brands to buy??? I'm going to the States next week (LA, not L.A.) and see if I can buy it and get it on the plane. I think this figure may hold the record for more action features on a ToyBiz action figure, as the eyes light up, it can fire 4 missiles, and if I add the buzzing action again, it can simulate the heavy mahcine gun being fired!!!! 6 in total!!! Esta muy chingón.
