The new Hot Toys Captain America is an amazing figure with some nice accessories including the definitive Steve Rogers headsculpt!
Hot Toys’ latest international release is Captain America from Avengers Endgame. Pre-orders from Sideshow Collectibles are starting to ship directly from Hong Kong. This one was delayed a few times but it allowed the Hot Toys team to fix some problems on the prototype. Namely the straps on the broken shield and the size of the star on the costume.
BOX ART AND ACCESSORIES
The box art is the usual design as the other Avengers Endgame figures. This means you have the Avengers logo with a promotional art of the character and the movie title card. Since it’s Captain America, the colors are mainly blue and red.
It comes with some really cool accessories. 7 interchangeable hands (obviously), a brand new Steve Rogers headsculpt, 2 additional expressions for the helmeted Captain America headsculpt, Captain America helmet, Steve’s compass, additional hand joints, Mjolnir, the shield, the broken shield, and the basic stand.
The basic stand is the same as the other Avengers Endgame figures with the Avengers logo and the symbol of the character, here it’s Captain America’s shield. Little accessories like Steve’s compass are always nice to have! You can open it and there’s a small picture of Peggy inside!
The shields and the Mjolnir are both made of plastic but the paint application almost makes it feel like it’s diecast. Real diecast wouldn’t have worked here because it would have been too heavy for the figure to carry. So Hot Toys made the right choice. Both shields are battle-damaged with traces of dirt on them.
Just like the shields, the costume has some dirt effects on it. It’s subtle but it feels like he’s been to battle. Hot Toys has done a great job getting the costume accurate. Like I said at the beginning of my review, they’ve updated it. When the promotional pictures of the prototype were released people complained that the star wasn’t big enough. So, they improved it for the final version.
They used hard plastic for the armor parts of the costume and a mix between fabric and plastic for the rest of the costume. It’s similar to what they used for Black Widow. So be careful when you display the figure, don’t keep it in the same action pose for too long. That being said, you can get him in some great action poses! As every Hot Toys figure, this one has over 30 points of articulation.
Let’s talk about the helmeted headsculpt first. It’s a great one, you can definitely recognize Captain America there and I love that they included different expressions like they do for Batman figures. It’s more difficult to change on this one than on Batman figures, that’s the difference. You get a basic expression, an angry expression, and a ready for battle expression. Each one looks great!
Then you have the Steve Rogers headsculpt, both have been sculpted by Hwan Kim and painted by JC Hong. Yulli was the head director. This team has done incredible work! This new headsculpt is fantastic, it really looks like Chris Evans! I love the different shades of color for the hair – at the front light and darker at the back. I got to say, for now, it is the definitive headsculpt for the character.
An amazing figure with some really nice accessories including the definitive Steve Rogers headsculpt! If you were thinking of getting it, just go for it!
