This is the Hot Toys’s rescue version of Captain America from the movie Captain America: the First Avenger.
Long awaited and finally announced. But in another way I imaged.
I thought this figure would come out as a regular release. Instead, the lucky few attending the San Diego Comic Con can get their hands on this figure together with Angelica from Pirates of the Caribbean and Jim Gordon from The Dark Knight.
Both very, very awesome. I will post the Jim Gordon announcement later on.
I bet Sideshow will have this exclusive figure at pre-order pretty soon.
I digg this figure. A great miss in the previous release of Captain America was the headsculpt. This release as a great lifelike head sculpt of Chris Evans, who plays the character of Steve Rogers.
I really like the colour-scheme and love the leather bomber jacket.
This is Cap’s pre-star spangled, WWII outfit. And the costume designer really nailed it.
Cap is holding his triangular shield. A really nice nod to the first couple of comics of Captain America.
I don’t have any WWII soldiers to accompany him. That’s the only reason I won’t add him to my sixth scale collection. All the other [super-hero] figures in my collection are from present time. Somehow this figure would stand out beside them. True, I have a Captain America from the forties. But I really like his WWII ‘battle’ classic costume, and it looks like it still could be worn by Cap in present time.
Yeah, I need to draw the line somewhere. This looks like a great figure. Again, great colour-scheme, very contemporary, and spot-on head sculpt. But then there’s the price tag. I find $220 just to much for a figure packing not a lot of accessories.
