Hot Toys Captain America Avengers: Endgame Pre-Order Goes Live!Paul
Whether you belong to the Captain America or Iron Man camp as a Hot Toys collector it’s always a pleasant surprise to see when a new Movie Masterpiece Series figure goes up for Pre-Order. The latest sixth scale figure announcement from Hot Toys that is now officially up for pre-order with Endgame airing in theaters all over the world is an updated Captain America (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure. In the last film, Avengers: Infinity: War we got a completely different look for Steve Rogers sporting a beard and a slightly darker color suit than the typical red white and blue that fans were used to for the character. While many collectors enjoyed that look for Captain America, with Avengers: Endgame being the culmination of 22 movies and 10 years of story telling it’s only fair that we get another version of this iconic hero in his original “OG” colors. The addition of the “scale” like texture along the upper body of the suit is beautiful and really gives the suit a more aggressive look.
One thing Hot Toys collectors will be ecstatic to see makes a return is the iconic Captain America shield which was lacking in the Avengers: Infinity War release of this figure. While it made sense from a plot perspective it was a little disappointing for collectors who did not already own a version of Captain America because they couldn’t display the character with the accessory that’s undeniably most important to the character. Good to see that Hot Toys is sticking to the #DontSpoiltheEndgame mentality as they should and not revealing some of the accessories until after the movie has been seen by the millions of fans that have been waiting eagerly. Nobody likes spoilers. This particular suit reminds me a lot of the Civil War suit with some minor changes which is not necessarily a bad thing but it may be tough for some collectors to justify a purchase.
With many Avengers and Marvel fans speculating this might be one of the last films we see Chris Evans in this purchase for a lot of Hot Toys collectors is a no brainer, even with the similarities it has to previous releases. My biggest complaint with the figure (and it seems most collectors agree) is that it looks like they are simply re-using the same ol’ Steve Rogers head sculpt we saw in previous sixth scale releases and just adding a different ‘mouthpiece’ option. It seems a little lazy and unjust considering that we may not get further versions of the character but maybe it did not make sense from a production standpoint to produce a new sculpt and paint job for a character that looks identical anyway. Maybe at some point we will see a comment on this from Hot Toys but don’t hold your breath. With Chris Evans’ portrayal of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe such an impressive run this is one Hot Toys figure that will surely be added to my collection on release day right alongside his amigo Iron Man. This figure comes in @ $264.99 USD right here on Toy Origin and we offer 5% Reward Points cash back to customers with every order! Pre-Order today and reserve yours or be sad you didn’t later..
