Doesn’t take much for Hasbro to produce another Captain America. This new version sports a more tough guy looking head sculpt and slightly deeper blue. All-New character art by Mike Deodato is featured on the front of the card. priced at $9.99 (Target).

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Avengers Assemble All-Star Series Captain America

13 08 2013

I first saw these a Toysrus for $9.99. Way too high for a 4″ action figure with not a lot of articulation (ball jointed head, swivel hips and shoulders). Next day, walked into Target and spotted them for only $5.99. The line includes Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America. I picked up good ol’ Cap.

The sculpt is pretty good. The paint job is very sloppy. I grabbed the best one I could.

He comes with a generic shield. Pretty positive its a reused part from the movie series.

You can flip the clip for the shield inward to peg the shield into the back of the figure.

Definitely not a great figure so I really don’t recommend paying $9.99. For $5.99, you can pick up your favorite Avenger.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Avengers Assemble Mighty Battler Captain America

21 05 2013

Walked into my local Target and spotted these Avengers Assemble Mighty Battlers 6″ action figures. Despite not having a lot of articulation, the figure looks good enough to me to add to my collection. I’m a Captain America and decided to pick his figure.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble Mighty Battlers Captain America 01

The figure has a simplified look and is very cartoony. Its apparent with this level of sculpting who the the target audience is and it’s not for the adult collector. Don’t expect Marvel Legends sculpting here.

His shield is attached to the figure and can not be removed.

Hasbro Avengers Assemble Mighty Battlers Captain America 04

Right shoulder is ball hinged while the left shoulder simply rotates 360. Single jointed elbows and no wrist articulation. His head is ball jointed and legs swivel forward and back. His gimmick action happens when you rotate the upper torso clockwise and release for a shield hook punch…hence the justice shield action.

He scales equally with Hasbro’s Ultimate Spider-Man 6″ action figure series 🙂

Pretty descent Cap figure but not for everyone. Priced pretty high at $12.99 so hopefully you can find him on sale for adding to your collection.





Adventures in Toy Shopping: Super Heroes a plenty :)

22 04 2013

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.

Marvel Select Black Widow

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 🙂
