Couple months ago I post a polling about which paper model to be make for the new figure paper model and Iron Patriot won the vote. Just like previous Iron man models, this model also comes with 2 version of templates, colored one and blank or white version. The built size is a little bit bigger then Iron Man Mark VII and War Machine to be exact at 1:6 scale. The colored template has 4 pages and 5 pages for the blank version. Also like the others this one will be pose-able with articulated joints. Iron Patriot is based on the War Machine suit in the upcoming Iron Man 3 movie, but with special weapon and color. Its color is very similar to Captain America, the American flag. Inside this Iron Patriot suit is Lt. Col. James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), who in Iron Man 2 was wearing the previous version of War Machine suit. This model template will be released in 3 parts. The second part will be both arms and shoulder weapon and the last part will be his hip, legs and the display base.
After the Invasion of Skrulls Norman Osborn became the new hero of the world and replaced Tony Stark as the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., or rather its successor H.A.M.M.E.R..
When he decided to create a new team of Avengers he felt the team needed the heroic images of Captain America and Iron Man. Thus he decided to create this battle suit painted with the colors of Captain America's costume which was cobbled together from StarkTech that had been confiscated from Tony Stark's armory at Stark Tower shortly after H.A.M.M.E.R.'s formation.
However, Osborn lacked the technical expertise on how to operate the armor's repulsor generators efficiently (replacing it with the not as powerful Uni-Beam projector star-shaped output), making it less powerful than Stark's Iron Man armors.
It was hacked into and shut down for good by Iron Man at the end of the Siege of Asgard due to the armor based off an older design and has not been in use since.
While at an arms convention, Marcus Johnson and Maria Hill see the Iron Patriot armor on display. During the fight between A.I.M. and the Secret Avengers, Andrew Forson takes the opportunity to steal the Iron Patriot Armor.
