Thomas joins the Marvel Civil War to review the impressive Captain America action figure from Captain America: Civil War
The next S.H. Figuarts release is in April with Harley Quinn (Birds Of Prey) so I thought it was the perfect time during this lockdown to review an old figure – Captain America from Civil War! It was released in May 2016 and quickly became a very rare figure because this was the first Captain America figure from Figuarts to have a changeable Steve Rogers headsculpt! As a result, a lot of bootleg versions popped up on eBay at lower prices but if you want the real thing, you gotta pay a lot. My Kombini is still offering it at a decent price but I don’t know how long it’s gonna last.
This figure comes with 8 interchangeable hands, 2 interchangeable heads with necks, one shield and 5 interchangeable strips for the shield.
The outfit is great, good paint apps beautiful colors and screen accurate! This figure has 26 points of articulation with some extra POA on the shoulders for the best action poses!
The helmeted headsculpt is really good though I’d argue it’s a bit small compared to the torso in terms of proportions and even more so when compared to the Steve Rogers headsculpt. That second headsculpt is simply excellent, it’s spot on Chris Evans and as usual with a fine job of digital print tech!
The shield comes with 5 interchangeable straps so you can attach it to his back, attach it to his hand like if he’s throwing it at his enemies. For the back, the piece covering the hole is very small and can easily be lost so be careful with that! The shield has beautiful vibrant metallic colors, well done!
Without any doubt a must-have and the best 6 inch Captain America figure!
