A Look at the Sideshow Collectibles Captain America Premium Format Figure

The Sideshow Collectibles Captain America Premium Format Figure

With “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hitting theaters, we’re taking a look back at one of the most impressive statues ever released based on Marvel’s star-spangled super soldier. Originally debuting as a tie-in with the “Captain America: The First Avenger” film, the Sideshow Collectibles Captain America Premium Format Figure is an exhaustively detailed monument to the beloved character’s 73-year heritage, and remains a must-have for Marvel fans.

Perched atop its nearly 3” sculpted, battlefield-themed base, the 18” Sideshow Collectibles Captain America Premium Format Figure is an attention-grabber by its dimensions alone. Up close, the myriad of intricately crafted details that emerge make it clear that Sideshow’s creative team placed an emphasis on recreating the iconic character’s finer elements as well.

First off, Sideshow’s Captain America figure includes both helmeted and unhelmeted head sculptures. They’re easily swappable and feature a portrait of actor, Chris Evans, that’s downright uncanny in its realism.

The Sideshow Collectibles Captain America Premium Format Figure truly shines in its faithful recreation of the First Avenger’s iconic “spangly” uniform. Although the boots, torso, and upper-body are mostly sculpted, the trousers feature fabric construction. The hue, texture, and diminutive accents have been painstakingly fashioned to closely mimic their on-screen appearance. Other impressive elements include the assortment of tiny working clasps and faux leather components that add dimension and realism to this masterfully rendered statue.

Another aspect of the Sideshow Captain America figure that deserves special mention is the 5.5” diameter shield replica that’s included. Although it’s permanently affixed to the right arm, the detail in the Argive grip on the shield’s backside and its patriotically finished “vibranium” exterior is amazing nonetheless. The “Sideshow Exclusive” variant includes an additional arm sculpt with a battle-damaged shield that can be swapped-out for even more display options.

The Sideshow Collectibles Captain America Premium Format Figure is highly recommended for just about any Marvel devotee with a penchant for high-end statues. This $350 collectible is premium in every sense of the word and it bears the quality, attention to detail, and stunning presence that make it an essential acquisition for fans and collectors alike.
