Over the weekend, I found myself at the mall and wandered into the Disney Store. To my surprise, I spotted Marvel Select figures for $24 each. They apparently carry exclusive Avengers figures. Had to grab Captain America and Black Widow.
Cap comes with a special display stand and his trademark Shield. His face sculpt is very much based off art by John Cassaday, an artist who has drawn him in past comics.
Black Widow has a very classic hairdo and beautiful face. Unfortunately she has a few problems. She’s isn’t black but in a metallic like purple spy suit. It’s a nice paint job but she hardly feels like the “Black Widow” with this paint scheme. Both her hands are molded with a gun gesture but she has no guns. Weird. Lastly, her hips are bit skinny for my taste and you lose that sexy look the Black Widow is know for having. You get a custom debris style base with some broken parts of Ultron and little Ant-Man figure.
Not to out due my Marvel findings, walked into my local Target and spotted a couple of Mattel DC Unlimited figures. First up is the New 52 design of Aquaman. His design is just awesome with good looking head sculpt, updated design and very size-able trident.
Got the Injustice (Regime) Superman. The figure has a very nice design but his articulation is very lacking. Feels like DC Direct figure. I really like how they pulled off the shoulder pads with the cape underneath. I used the custom base that came with the Marvel Select Captain America for special photo with Superman on top of it.
And if your wondering what he looks like next to the Injustice Batman here you go :)
