Re: Captain America: The First Avenger Action Figures Released in Canada

Found the paints on these guys to be a bit messy, though not as bad as Thor. I'll probably pick up a heavy artillery Cap and Winter Soldier during a sale. Super glad I bought the SDCC exclusive WW2 Cap. The colors on the battlefield look wierd in person, maybe it's the glossy navy blue they gave him. Hopefully wave 2 hits during a sale, heh, I really want a Bucky Cap.

Some pics of the display I saw at my local TRU. Incredibly small compared to what they gave the Transformers Darkside of the Moon figures.

Not impressed with the figures I've seen so far... I still prefer my MU Captain America. Not sure why I don't like them, they just don't really stand out in any kind of exciting way.

I'm only interested in the Parachute Captain America, maybe Winter Solider once I see him in person

Hmm, I was kinda of the interested in the parachute cap, the smaller shield with slings looks so much better than the single carded ones. But he lacks a bicep/elbow swivel joint.

Re: Captain America: The First Avenger Action Figures Released in Canada

The paint apps are very bad with what I have seen so far. I had to look over every single figure there for "the best one" and it took forever. I finally found a good Winter Soldier out of over 10 or so, 1 decent Ultimate Cap ( crappy shield gimmick) out of the same amount but I could not find a decent looking Captain America (with the missile launcher) out of the ones they had there. I was going to buy the deluxe figures but they have no elbow swivel at all...but they have wrist swivel...not worth 13 bucks in my mind, hope they clearance them off and I'll buy some.
