Marvel Legends Captain America Infinite Series Marvel Now! Captain America Review

Marvel Legends Captain America Infinite Series WW2 Captain America 01

 

Hasbro seems to really like making a new Marvel Legends Captain America these past couple of years. This release is based on the current comic book series.

If you follow the current stories in Marvel Comics (we’re guilty of having stopped reading after House Of M), Marvel Now! is a relaunch of several ongoing comic book series with new character costumes, new writers, a new format, and more new reasons for us not to follow the Marvel Universe under the grip of Joe Quesada. While the comics aren’t for us, the new character costumes look great and we hope to see some more Marvel Now! costumes get the Marvel Legends treatment.

The breakdown of build-a-figure parts included in the assortment is as followed:

  • WW2 Captain America – No Build-A-Figure Parts
  • Marvel Now! Captain America – Head
  • Agents Of Hydra Red Skull/Hydra Soldier – Left Arm
  • Soldiers Of A.I.M Baron Zemo/A.I.M. Soldier- Right Arm
  • Wave 2 – Captain America – Right Leg
  • Wave 2 – Winter Soldier – Left Leg
  • Wave 2 – Black Widow – Torso

Availability: January 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

Marvel Now! Captain America is an all-new sculpted figure with a great sculpt and paint job. He has a great looking head sculpt with the “A” in the front, and painted wings on the sides. His blue/grey chest armor has sculpted texture and a beveled white star sculpted over it. He is painted in the standard red/white/blue color scheme, with a brown belt sculpted on and grey knee pads. The shield has a nice glossy finish over it.

There seems to be some complaints from fans claiming that the ab crunch white and red striped shirt has paint chipping. While this is not the case with this figure, it is probably from a certain batch of figures from the manufacturer and might not be a wide-spread problem.

This particular figure however does have a problem with his left shoulder hinge. Without using enough force to possibly break it, the shoulder just won’t raise or lower and it’s stuck in that one position for the time being.

Captain America includes his shield that has a clip/peg combo that can attach itself to his arm, or be stored on his back with the peg as seen from current Marvel Legends Captain America action figures.

Articulation:

Ball hinged head, ball hinge shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel hinged wrists, ab crunch, hinged and swivel hips, swivel thighs, hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles.

Accessories:

Shield

Overall:

Despite some improvement needed in making sure the shoulder joints won’t rub or get stuck, and the fact that some figures have paint chipping on the ab crunch, this is still a nice looking figure.

Highly Recommended.
