Adventures in Toy Shopping: Marvel Legends (Hit Monkey Series) Ultimate Captain America

22 01 2013

Dropped by my local Target and spotted the next Marvel Legends (Hit Monkey Series) Action Figures. The only figure that tickled my fancy was the Ultimate Captain America action figure. He’s one of the figures in the line without a Hit Monkey build-a-figure part.

He has a brown combat vest that gives him a more equipped look. He rarely used a vest in the comics but its nice edition for the figure.

He’s not entirely accurate to his comic book design. He lacks gray paint apps under the shoulder joints like the gray areas on the inside of the biceps. He also is missing the star logos on top of the shoulders.

Note all the extra combat gear on the rear of his belt. Too bad its not painted differently so they stand out better.

There’s a gun but its molded into his thigh holster 😥 At least it’s painted.

His shield is the same as Bucky Captain America’s with a nice metallic paint palette on the front of the shield.

The head sculpt has the same facial design as the Steve Rogers Super Soldier mold. Very cool because you can head swap between the two figures and have extra display options.

This is a great figure and a must own for Cap fans. He scales perfectly with previous Cap figures. He has all the articulation for great posing with relatively tight joints. You can even remove the combat vest for a more classic look 🙂
