Captain America (World War 2 Uniform)

I remember that when I saw the first wave of figures in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie, I thought that Hasbro had made a mistake including the version of Captain America in his WWII uniform.

A.I.M. Scientist

Of course, you can tell this AIM Scientist does not appear in the film just by looking at the decidedly comic book-inspired design.

Marvel Now! Captain America

The figure is a completely new sculpture, and even though this uniform does not appear in the actual movie, the sculptor at Hasbro still wanted to go for a more plausible look by incorporating a lot of details and textures into the mix.

Captain America (Movie Series)

One character I remember rather fondly from my Mego days is Captain America. When the Captain America: The First Avenger movie came out, I was rather excited for the opportunity to get an updated version of his costume, but for whatever reason I was unable to really sink my teeth into that line.

Classic Captain America

Hasbro has had quite a large number of Captain America action figures made in recent years and even though I did pick up a fair share of them, my collection still lacked a classic version of him until the release of Marvel Universe Series 5.

1942 WLA Flathead Harley Davidson

Well, today I’ll be talking about something a little different, a 1:18 vehicle I found at a local store. The vehicle is a WLA 1942 Flathead Harley Davidson motorcycle, and was produced by Maisto.

Super Shield Captain America

Super Shield Captain America

Super Shield Captain America is intended to be from the Ultimates continuity, as attested by the slightly more down-to earth attire. The overall level of detail is excellent, with good body proportions and the upper torso scale texture, along with the seams and straps added to the rest of the costume.

5 Marvel Movie Characters I Want Figures Of (But Won’t Happen)

As a long time Star Wars figure collector, I’ve gotten use to the fact if I wait long enough I’ll see a character from that universe in figure form. However, the Marvel Movie universe is another story. While heavy on the main characters, these lines have been rather small in scope and depth. That said […]

Captain America (Shield Launcher)

  Well, when the Avengers figure line started to show up at stores, I admit I was one of those bemoaning the diminished articulation Hasbro gave to these figures.  However, after being exposed to the movie in theaters a couple of times, I convinced myself that I really wanted a figure from this line and […]

SCCC Spotlight: Dave Wachter

There were 2 things that caught my eye as I walked into the Summit City Comic Convention, first was a large cardboard standup of Captain America, which unfortunately had a note tacked to it “sold” the other was a intricately detailed sketch of a World War II era Red Skull. As I perused artist alley […]

Captain America (Heroic Age)

After the “death” of the original Captain America in the comics, there were more than a few candidates to occupy his place, but ultimately the mask and shield ended up in the care of another comic book character that has had some experience returning from death, James Buchanan Barnes, a.k.a. Bucky, a.k.a. Winter Soldier.

Hydra Solider

. The thing that has really struck me about the Marvel movie lines is the lack of baddies for the heroes to face off against. All three of the individual Avengers movie lines have been over ripe with the heroes. The endless Iron Man repaints versus just a few bad guys. Thor had versions with […]

Red Skull Redux

With the “Talk to the Skull and Win!” contest ending at Midnight yesterday, it’s a bit apropos that I’m talking about the Red Skull today. (Don’t worry, the contest winner will be announced as soon as they’ve been confirmed by email.) First, I was discussing the silent version of “Phantom of the Opera” with talented artist […]

Essential Captain America Volume 1

Okay. I’m sorry. I didn’t go see Captain America in theaters. Wanted to, just never made it. Now that I have that out of the way, let’s get on with the show. Before the film came out, I bought Captain America Essentials Volume 1. I wanted to do a little reading up on a hero […]

Hero Power Captain America

Even as a kid, mismatched scale characters never really appealed to me. I understand the kid appeal of these larger figures, especially with a movie character like Captain America. Thanks to the folks at the Regal Movies on Twitter, I won one this guy through a trivia contest related to the new film. There is […]

Captain Britain (Comic Series)

One of the figures I was most excited about, from the Captain America toy line by Hasbro, was this version of Captain Britain (06). Unfortunately, once the figure started showing at stores, I was less than thrilled by the paintjob it got.

Red Skull

Probably one of the more recognizable villains in the Marvel Universe, Red Skull has found his way into the second wave of Captain America figures as the main movie baddie. Past that, I really don’t know much about Red Skull past the fact he creeped me out when he showed up on comic book covers when I was […]

Captain America might be the movie I’m most excited to see this year. I just hope we get some action figure goodness out of it. Yeah, I know Thor and Green Lantern are out. And I know Transformers is out. I just happen to like World War II stuff. And World War II stuff with […]
