Our pals at Sideshow Collectibles have a brand new shiny maquette to show off, and we've got an exclusive giveaway to go with it.

The Figure

The Iron Patriot Quarter Scale Maquette is officially available for pre-order, and features a movie-replica design and light-up features on the chest, eyes, and repulsor hands.

No Caption Provided

The team at Sideshow Collectibles partnered up with Legacy Effects Studio, the special effects team behind the suits featured in the Iron Man films, to make this maquette as movie-accurate as possible. Each figure also comes with an accessory portrait of Don Cheadle. It may or may not reset your email password to "WAR MACHINE ROX" with an "X," all caps (we can't confirm).

The 1:4 scale maquette is 22 inches tall, has individually-painted and hand-finished high gloss armor, and retails at $399.99. Pre-orders are open now, with the maquette shipping out in late 2014.

Collector Bonus: if you pre-order this figure, you'll get double rewards points from Sideshow Collectibles.

How can you win?

It's so easy, you don't have to be a Tony Stark-level genius to do it:

  • Comment on this post with your favorite Iron Patriot story or moment.
  • Do that before midnight (12:00) PST on Sunday, December 22, 2013.
  • Realize that only one comment per person counts for the drawing, but you're allowed to make as many as you like.

A winner will be chosen at random from the posts that qualify (sorry guys, posts about how your uncle's neighbor makes $2051/hr by doing literally nothing because he's a spambot don't count!). Sideshow Collectibles will ship the figure (to your non-PO Box address in the USA) as soon as it is manufactured.

And the winner is...

[Update: 12:03am December 23, 2013] Our randomly-chosen winner is mightypug78! Thanks to everyone who entered -- we had a great time reading your favorite Iron Patriot moments, and can't wait to have more awesome contests.

does It have to be movie iron patriot? from the movie it was the moment he first appeared. he was so bad ass and awe inspiring. he was basically an iron man i could stand behind. now for comics i loved when osborns helmet was removed and you saw a goblin face underneath. the supposed symbol of americas new safety turned ou to be a madman after all.

I loved when Killian's henchman had control of the Iron Patriot armor, and everyone treats him like Rhodey solely because he's in the armor.

My favorite moment: the president is dangling helplessly in the Iron Patriot armor, only to be saved by Rhodey, who puts on the armor and flies the president to safety. Patriotism for the win!

In Dark Wolverine when Daken used his third claw to stab him through the face. Sure it wasnt a great moment for him...and it didnt really happen...but in that moment I was like "holy crap!".

Ok not a great moment for Norman, but still memorable.

My favorite Iron Patriot story was the Dark Avengers arc. How he took over some of Tony's armors and decide to combine one with an American theme so his team would have an amalgam of Cap and Iron Man, then setting up this team so it would be accepted by the public by having its own versions of classic Avengers like Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye, with new comes like Spider-Man and Wolverine. It was very much like a Luthor-move, manipulating public opinion to have the public accept HIS Avengers. It truly showed the cunning and sadistic nature of Norman Osborn, a villain who, until then, may have been a huge Spider-Man villain, but never left much of an impact on the larger Marvel universe. It was truly a great arc.

My favorite Iron Patriot moment would have to be his fight with Steve Rogers during his invasion of Asgard. In the middle of the fight, Tony Stark turns off the armor and causes it to fall apart from a great distance away, revealing his Green Goblin-esque face.
