So it has been 20 years and I am unsure what number of figures. It is in all probability over a thousand by now going by what I see in my show and the a number of containers of figures. It has been fairly a journey. I bear in mind getting the very first Toy Biz collection from Takashimaya. Again then every determine value about SG$20. I acquired fortunate with that. The next waves have been robust. Scalpers… the variants? Even harder. Glad we do not have to cope with variants anymore. Issues acquired simpler as soon as some shops began promoting the waves in units. I have been getting units ever since.
Seeing the gathering brings me nice pleasure. I imply it is the Marvel Universe! Characters I grew up studying and watching. Having the ability to pose them is nice. I really like making team-ups and having characters face off. Generally in humorous methods. Toyfare was an important affect. Lol. I wish to hold gathering as a lot as I can. It is getting more durable. The associated fee has elevated considerably. For instance Cap right here value SG$50. Then a number of the waves appear so lacklustre. And I have been considering, do I actually need each single model of the characters? I haven’t got the house, and what I show is only one of every. Apart for Spider-man. I am really fairly pleased with the variations of the primary characters we have already gotten.
Okay sufficient about that allow’s get on with the determine. Cap is available in a packaging just like what Toy Biz figures used to return in. It is on a cardback so you’ll be able to nonetheless rip it open with you fingers. I hoped for clamshell packaging. I kinda miss struggling to open Toy Biz figures. Lol.
I discussed earlier whether or not to gather the completely different variations of characters. Now if Hasbro made them nearly as good as traditional Captain America right here I would not thoughts a lot. This man is excellent! Loving the look and the brighter color tones. The higher physique reuses the Marvel eightieth Anniversary Cap’s whereas the legs reuses these from Wolf Cap. They paid nice consideration to the paint apps with this one. Take a look at the “scales” on his higher torso. Every particular person piece has a spot of sunshine blue paint utilized. Very good! He is additionally acquired some darkish pink shading utilized on his gloves, ab areas and boots. It helps deliver out the element on the sculpt. I really feel perhaps they should not have carried out the shading for the abs space. It seems to be like a stain from some angles.
The pinnacle sculpt is new. I believe it seems to be higher than the Marvel eightieth Cap. He wears a reasonably severe look on his face. You may make out his forehead fairly simply by way of his masks. His eyes have been painted wanting up which is annoying. I praised them too early on the subject of paint apps. My determine has some flesh tone on his masks…
The forehead and the mouth are probably the most outstanding adjustments.
Equipment. He comes with an unmasked head, a rolled up masks, a harness, a set of open fingers, a left pointing hand, a proper saluting hand, his protect, electrical energy impact piece, slash impact piece and three bullet impact items.
There’s additionally a base with “Marvel Legends” sculpted on it and a card backdrop. The bottom has pegs on it to face the determine on.
There is a slot on the bottom so that you can place the cardboard into. On one aspect of the cardboard is the quilt of Captain America #109. And on the reverse aspect is a picture of a ruined constructing which is a throwback to the show base which got here with the previous Toy Biz determine. How I want we may get some diorama items with out the associated fee growing additional.
The unmasked head seems to be okay. I see Steve Rogers and likewise another person who I can not put my finger on. Some TV star or celeb. That different individual is pushing by way of greater than Steve and I can not get that picture out of my head. I suppose I am not used to seeing him with the side-parted hair. The hair has good element and has some shading in it. His blue eyes too have been properly carried out and I like how his blond eyebrows turned out.
Unsurprisingly the unmasked head will match on the Marvel eightieth Anniversary Cap as properly.
This is a fast comparability with Commander Rogers.
The rolled up masks is an easy piece. There may be some good element carried out for the wings.
It sits loosely on his neck and tends to maneuver round. Nonetheless it seems to be good on him.
I really like the protect. Particularly the scale of it. I additionally like the brilliant color tones and the gloss look it has. However why oh why the holes… sure I do know they’re there to connect the impact items however it seems to be horrible when he is simply carrying it round. Every gap is of a special form as you’ll be able to see under. The within of the protect is simply plain gray swirly plastic. I actually hope we are able to get this protect with out the holes sooner or later.
The protect makes use of the peg and clip system. The clip is small and there is some problem simply to clip it onto his wrist. I strongly advise towards clipping it to his forearm. There is a good probability the clip will break.
A fast protect dimension comparability.
The impact items work very well with the protect. All of them look nice. Attaching the electrical energy and the slash impact items is fairly easy. The bullet impact items generally is a little troublesome as it’s worthwhile to match the completely different formed pegs with the corresponding holes. The entire impact items are translucent. I like that some white paint was utilized on the bullets and slash impact items. It actually gives the look of the purpose of contact and the sparks.
The harness has some good element on it. It is leather-based like and you can also make out the seams and likewise the holes for the buckle on it. I like that the buckles have been painted. The harness matches Cap properly. And you’ll peg the protect onto his again with out subject.
I’m somewhat upset with the dearth of gripping fingers. I have not been capable of finding a suitably colored set for him to borrow thus far. Proven under are the gripping fingers of the Marvel eightieth Cap (proper hand) and Wolf Cap (left). Their pink tone is just too darkish. The retro Cap fingers would possibly work. I am unable to search out him presently.
Articulation. He is acquired a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, boot swivel and ankle hinge and pivot.
Nice determine! The impact items are cool. Now he simply wants a protect with out the holes! Thanks for viewing!
