Marvel Legends 2012: Steve Rogers

At this point in my collecting, I am a sucker for 6 inch figures.  I am 20 waves into DC Universe Classics and Marvel Legends are a natural progression of my collecting.  I didn't buy any of the previous Toy Biz or Hasbro incarnations with the exception of the 2 packs from last year.  But this doesn't seem to be bothering me.  Starting from here and not looking back seems reasonable after seeing what seems to be high quality toys from Hasbro, I couldn't resist picking these up.  And damn... I am a sucker for variants, and this line will have a ton of them.

Steve Rogers.  Captain America himself.  With Bucky Cap running around, Steve had to find a place for himself and that was as Commander Steve Rogers.  Yah, I follow Marvel comics as well as DC.

Let's get on with the figure.

The package is really well thought out and put together.  The wave will prey on the popularity of the Avengers and the upcoming movie.  I say BRAVO!  Let's get kids buying this kind of stuff!

The articulation is very nice.  The big changes from previous incarnations are no toe joint or hand joints.  In fact Steve's arms remind me of the first 25th Anniversary GI Joe's with the articulation in the forearm instead of wrist.  Double jointed arms and knees.  Ball joints for legs and arms.  Great overall movement.  I must say if these had rocker ankles I would be beside myself.

The sculpt.  I like it.  I love sculpted outfits.  Boots, gloves, and some webgear type stuffs.  All positives.

The paint.  Solid and tight.  I could only find minor flaws.

All in all I really enjoy this figure.  I would recommend him to any comic action figure collector.

  1. Then when Wilsdorf offered their rolex replica sale view in order to Mercedes Gleitz on her in order to put on whilst your woman swam the actual British Funnel, eye brows had been elevated. Because of the actual replica watches covered situation screwed lower in front, back again as well as overhead the actual view carried out with no problem. It had been an amazing discovery, and something which steered fake rolex sale for the popularity it's these days, however the view by itself just composed 1 / 2 of the actual rolex replica sale required for the actual achievement Wilsdorf targeted with regard to. Another fifty percent replica watches from the company a part of their mind, the actual tactician which understood whenever, exactly where as well as how you can market their manufacturer. Taking advantage of the actual breitling replica required away the front-page advertorial within the Every day Postal mail, praising the actual amazing task for an target audience associated with thousands and thousands.
