The Captain America Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys: Spangly AuthenticityDecember 13, 2013
Hot Toys has put its coveted Marvel license to good use once again with the sixth scale limited edition Captain America action figure. Whats immediately noteworthy is how thoroughly and meticulously the artists have captured the spangly super-soldiers iconic likeness in such diminutive dimensions.
For starters, the head sculpt is particularly well rendered. Hot Toys’ artists have done a truly exceptional job of capturing the visage of actor Chris Evans as he appeared in The Avengers complete with subtle skin tones and surface textures. Masked and unmasked versions of the head portrait are included along with an attachable hood to allow collectors to recreate a variety of shots from the film.
Examining Captain Americas suit, its clear that a lot of work went into capturing the fine details of this Avengers costume. From the pouches on his utility belt; the zippers on the trousers and upper garment; to the authentic detailing on the boots, its clear that Hot Toys was on a mission to appease even the most exacting Marvel fans. Our only quibble is that the suit is constructed with such tight tolerances that it limits the figures range of motion. We wanted to put the 30+ points of articulation to the test, but were leery about potentially damaging the costume.
Captain America impresses on the accessories front as well. In addition to the assortment of interchangeable hands and heads that are included, this set includes two metal-finished shields (one pristine; and one battle-damaged) along with a detailed replica of the Chitauri weapon that the figure can wield. A figure stand and nameplate round out this sought after limited edition set.
Bottomline: The Captain America sixth scale figure is one of our favorite Avengers collectibles. Its another must-have Hot Toys masterpiece that radiates an aura of quality fans will love and casual beholders will undoubtedly appreciate. See more images below.
