A little history to Iron Patriot (or in this case actually Lt. Col James Rhodes as the figure) if you aren't aware...
Iron patriot is mostly known in Marvel comics as Norman Osborn, and after the Invasion of Skrulls, 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.
The story gets more complex but well worth sourcing and reading up on in 'The Dark Avengers'.
