US & Canada:
Is Bandai going to solicit these weekly to get all those forgotten prototypes out?
Although I’m not sure if this version of Cap has been shown before. Or if I’d actually gripe about weekly Figuarts reveals. Either way, here’s Cap from when the Avengers traveled back to the first movie for a little time heisting.
Like I said, I’m not sure if Bandai has shown this one before but I like that it makes the Captain America costume look better than it actually appeared back in the first movie. Unfortunately, you get a little closer and things don’t hold up as well.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m one of the biggest proponents of “Not meant to be seen this close, will look better in person” but that doesn’t mean I think they should a close-up use it for initial solicitation. Just looks rough.
But check out the downed hood! Although it’s not listed in the accessories…
And I was going to say the same thing about the compass but realized it’s part of the hand, that’s one of the reasons five lefts and seven rights are on the list.
“So….you spent the car payment on action figures….”
Accessories include three heads (normal unmasked, clenched unmasked, masked), a couple of effects parts for the shield that actually look useful, and “set of shield.” I’m not sure if that a typo, a translation error, or there are actually a couple of shields.
It is a Soul Web exclusive but should hit Bluefin distribution like Loki did last week, being that it’s the same price of $82. Also, it took me a minute to realize this isn’t a two-pack, then I had to deal with the fact you gotta buy two in order to replicate the fight scene. Sigh… Goes up for pre-order May 1st, ships in September.
“That is America’s ass.”
