The third announcement of collectible figurines from the Avengers movie, is Captain America.
Released by Hot Toys before for it’s own movie “Captain America: The First Avenger“, this time the captain has a modern outfit and a fully sculpted head of Chris Evans who plays the character in both movies.
It’s the first time Hot Toys releases a sculpt of an actor with his mouth open. Or in this case with gritting teeth. I feel the likeness of Chris Evans is so-so. It has something off… But I like the sculpt.
I really liked Cap’s WOII outfit. It made him look tough. This new costume has some getting used to it. And I’m still not used to it. It’s is very ‘Captain Amerca’ and more true to the comics that it WOII variant, but is doesn’t make him look moere like a ‘leader’ or is impressive.
As a Hot Toys figure, I am very much in doubt to get him or not. I already have the “First Avenger” Captain America. Which I really like. The Avengers Captain does have some nice features the Cap I already have doesn’t has. Like the sculpt, the battle damaged shield, better articulation and a modern look. Looking at some of the promo photos the outfit around abdomen does bend or fold in a strange way when posing the figure. It doesn’t look nice.
I guess it depends on the price. If within the same price range as Nick Fury, I might consider buying. Fact is, he’s pretty different from the previous release. In the meantime Hot Toys released a teaser for their new Avengers Thor figure. I seems to me he’s more of the same of the one I have. The sculpt has to be a lot better for me considering buying a new Thor. We’ll just have to wait and see. For this Captain America. I wanna wait what the new Black Widow and Iron Man mark VII will look like.
