Hot Toys Captain America Sixth Scale Figure Final Product from ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’
The Avengers “boss” has arrived. In anticipation of the release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron in less than a month, Hot Toys and bloggers have released the final product photos for the Hot Toys Captain America sixth scale figure.
This is going to be the 2nd figure that Hot Toys was able to release before the movie actually hits theaters, following right behind the recently released Iron Man Mark 43.
The movie-accurate Captain America Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in Avengers: Age of Ultron and features a newly painted helmeted head sculpt, a newly painted Steve Rogers head sculpt, a finely tailored Captain America suit, a magnetic metal Captain America shield with retractable handles, and a specially designed figure stand.
When the figure was first announced, I honestly wasn’t that excited about the figure. I mean who would get terribly excited about their 4th Captain America? It was actually like that for me for most of the Avengers: Age of Ultron figures, since I have many of the characters already from the original The Avengers movie.
Though after seeing the final product images for Captain America, I’m half way tempted to purchase this figure even though I already have several Cap figures.
The more I look at the costume, the more that I like it. This costume looks more complex with all of the different stitching. What’s even better though is the fact that you can hook the shield on Captain America’s back. The previous Avengers Captain America didn’t have that option without customization.
He also appears to have much better upper body articulation, something that the original was really lacking.
This new Cap appears to be better in just about all areas. What’s everyone else doing that already has some of the characters from the original movie? Are you re-buying all of the characters, or are you just picking and choosing what new costumes you like best?
If these images were able to convince you enough to buy Captain America, he’s still available for pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles for $224.99. He’s scheduled to start shipping in June – August 2015.
