Honestly IMO, I really dont think the Evans sculpt is all that great. I mean its good,but its no Bale or RDJ sculpt. Feel like Hawkeyes was better and dont even feel his is all that good :dunno

I think the unmasked head looks good. Certainly better than the teaser indicated.

But I do think he needs a couple of guns. A pistol and that machine gun from the gif on the previous page :lol

I am going to have to see the movie though before deciding on what head/shield to use. I can see that BD shield getting a lot of love parted out for FA Caps!

Sweet. Maskless wins. Mask still looks goofy though :lol

Now the FA figure can get a head sculpt upgrade :D

My thoughts as well. I honestly just cant put my hands on it exactly though as to what makes it look so "off". Of course Im not just referring to the figure, but the whole outfit in live action as a whole. TFA Cap looked great because the head piece looked more like a helmet, but now it just looks very odd and very cosplayish/costumish

Great figure nonetheless...!

:rock I think I will like this more than my TFA Captain America figure. I hope the final product comes out like this

Centrocal
04-19-2012, 11:39 PM
I was really expecting them to include the Patriot rifle from the gif, but im so glad they gave us the alien gun. This is our only chance to get the alien weapons unique to this film. Thats why I wanted Red Skull to have more Hydra weapons. And we can probably get the rifle from another company anyway

Everyone who wanted a more neutral expression on the sculpt, I think the Steve Rogers sculpt is a major selling point for the USO/Rescue Cap and HT knows this. So thats probably why they went the angery sculpt

Ok...course clear:
This figure looks great, but I just don´t like the custome, uniform, whatever.

TFA Cap for me, but BD shield and the unhelmeted sculpt from this.
Maybe even a second helmeted sculpt from TFA´s, hollowing it out, for just holding it.

Should :rock

I like this figure, but something about the whole costume looks weird, perhaps the helmet. I may pick this up at a future time.

Dave_W
04-20-2012, 12:06 AM
I was going to display this without the helmet, but that mouth has put me right off, so the helmet is going back on. Also, this will be my first HT that isn't Iron Man!

I love the take on the modern pants. They remind me of Crye Precision's. I also like the gloves and boots. That deep red looks good.

But I hate everything else. They should have left the wings off the cowl, the crease issue would annoy me over time, and I just hate the silver on the shoulders and the pants. I don't understand why it was added.

Im on the fence with this one. So far I am passing. I may get a BW depending on what she looks like since I missed her IM2 version.

So how many time will you actually say it? Do you really believe you'll change any one's mind? I don't get it. If you don't like it, fine. But don't keep repeating yourself. What's the point or purpose. You gave your opinion, let others have theirs.

Sorry, Hot Toys... I really wanted to pick up a Captain America but not with that unmasked head. I wanted to display him with a normal expression... the way that Christopher Reeve Superman or Christian Bale Batman was done. Not this grimace.

It's not their best work. I'll wait for the next one.

Well, this is a must buy for me. There is no question, I held off from the CA:TFA version so that I could buy this one and I am not going to miss it. I think that his full costume and accessories look great...bar one small thing.

I know that this kind of thing is all personal opinion and is totally subjective, but to me the mouth on that unhelmeted head-sculpt is way off. It is easy to see Chris Evans in the battle-helmet face, and I can see him in the open faced sculpt too in everything but the puffed-out toothy mouth. That 'fat lip' look is just not right. And just watching CE's superhero movies would have confirmed this.

Still, I would not display it with the mask off anyway, mainly because CA wears a mask but also because that face is awful.

Geez, testy and defensive group tonight...how many pages of people going on and on about how other headsculpts don't look right are on this forum...THAT'S WHAT WE DO HERE. No need to get rude about it. If you like it, great! Seriously, I'm happy for you!

I think their point is you keep repeating yourself. Seems unnecessary. State your point and move on:dunno

I'll say it again, I'll bet you dollarsto donuts that if you showed just that pic of the headsculpt to any one of your friends (without showing any costume pics that giveitaway)NO ONEwould say"oh, that's Chris Evans". Just sayin.

Ok. I'm officially crazy. I don't mind being wrong. I need to get out of this hobby. If the consensus is that looks ANYTHING like Evans, than I'm out. Looks like an angry constipated chimp to me.


Nope, seems like everyone agrees with you...I'm all by myself over here thinking it doesn't look like him at all :monkey2


That is one of the worst headsculpts I've seen from HT...way off


Looks NOTHING like Evans...are they even trying anymore? I feel like they know that people will buy it anyway to have in their Avengers collection, so no need to spend time on making the HS look close to the actor


Really?? The Evans sculpt is perfect? I must be way off then...maybe I need glasses...or drugs

This is as good for now, but i can see HT doing a v2 version of this, and throw in the interchangable mouth plates like the bruce wayne batman begins later on, and might even throw in a PERS and label it as a DX if the movie is a hit.

Personally, I'm just gonna wait and decide if I wanna get the avengers figures after watching it.

Interesting, both Hawkeye and Cap sculpts were done by K.A. Kim. I think shes over worked. HT needs to give them time to improve these sculpts instead of moving on to the next project. I dont think Peter Parker ever got a resculpt. They seem to be rushing things.

Its so funny how people complain about Thor having a blank expression but as soon as HT gives a sculpt a little emotion, the entire fandom is divided :panic:So the lesson for HT: emotional sculpt=less customers :lol

The thing that is really annoying me now on these boards is that people are so damn picky! I know these figures are pretty expensive, but the quality is a 100 times better than comparable figures, six or seven years ago. If you don't like 'em don't buy 'em. If you can do better, go customise! But for goodness sake quit with all the whining!:gah: :lol

I'm thoroughly happy with this, i'm torn between who gets the battle damaged shield, so far i'm leaning toward TFA, facing off against Red Skull. That'll be awesome

As far as the unmasked sculpt it concerned, i don't really swap out the heads for characters who wear masks. I like the hero's in full costume, thats what i love about the Maek vi helmet, you can just pop the visor up n down!

If i had one nitpick, and i do (which i find surprising as usually i don't) - it's that the outfit seems a bit... Baggy. So me thinks i'm gonna look at beefing up the bodybwhen i get this. Fill him out a bit.

Alien weapons! Will we see an Invading Alien figure in time? Who knows, would be cool to display with Avengers Loki (i still want Loki from Thor though)

In short, i'm happy. But then i suppose HT could ____ on a plate and I'd buy it. They must be drugging us

I think this is a great likeness!

Likeness looks really really good for everything nose and above.

The mouth though, while I admire the fact that they have gone for some emotion, does not come off that well. Looking at the side angle, it seems the lower jaw is 'thrust' too far forward, and it seems like the upper half of the face doesn't really match up with the expression. I would have expected more of a frown in the brows and a little more squint in the eyes to make the overall expression convincing.

Figure looks good overall, but I hate this suit design, dorky as hell :lol

Another case of Hot Toys making the figure look better then in the actual movie! This looks great, better then the First Avengers IMO.

I haven't really decided whether I like the unmasked sculpt. I think its something with the eyes which is putting it off. It looks good in some angles but front on it just doesn't look right... Even with the PS mod Bandito did it doesn't look right.

I'm still buying it regardless but probably won't display the head.

I'm of the opinion that the sculpt looks FANTASTIC, I can see Evans clear as day and it's very satisfying to get a sculpt that has something beyond a neutral expression.

I think Thor's sculpt is a bit underrated as it has a pretty good likeness, but is then spoilt somewhat by such a glum look (never looked like that in the movie - always either flushed and determined or smiling confidently) and sculpted hair that could have been better done.

I reckon we'll see all the big Avengers names with some emotion in their faces (this will be the sixth they have done of Tony Stark if you think about it!).

Definitely going to buy this! Only problem: November 2012 will mean April 2013 :(:(:(:(

Figure looks great. But the material in the ab area is very bad. You can see before its even released people will be getting crease mark issues. And that when people are going to sell second hand you will need to state the degree of crease marks around the waist.

tommyh84
04-20-2012, 03:53 AM
Not a fan of the Chris Evans sculpt but then I'd never display him with it so that's not really a problem, one of the shots also makes the suit look a little but baggy on him but I'll more than likely just pose him stood straight up with the shield so that won't be a problem for me either. Nice that they included a BD sheild, I think I'll probably use that on my first CA figure. Not sure about the gloves, they may be screen accurate but they look BD with the blue :dunno

For all the nitpicks though this is so bought regardless, I do think I prefer the first figure though.

My nit-pick is solely based around the mouth of the open-faced sculpt and not the masked one. The masked one is spot on, to me. I can see CE in the open faced head except at the mouth, that part of the sculpt is way off.

Earlier in the thread, someone posted a PS of the face but with CE's mouth over the top of the 'grimacing' mouth and that looked worlds better than the official one, despite the angles being wrong and the lighting and colouring being out...it was still better and brought all the other Evans qualities out of the face better.

It's just the mouth that is wrong.

Yeah, everyone seems to either like it or hate it...I like the Thor they made and don't see the issues with it that others do, but if they make a sleevless version of Thor from the movie I may be buying it especially if they make the headsculpt look even better like they did with the Evans sculpts on this version of Cap.

I'm betting we see Thor next, then BW, then HULK

While this figure overall looks awesome and is a definate buy for me, I have to say im not too fond of the awkward exposed teeth look. It looks like he has some mental disorder or just got out of a cold pool or something. For anyone who complains that HT's sculpts aren't dynamic enough, now you know why.

I'm of the opinion that the sculpt looks FANTASTIC, I can see Evans clear as day and it's very satisfying to get a sculpt that has something beyond a neutral expression.

I think Thor's sculpt is a bit underrated as it has a pretty good likeness, but is then spoilt somewhat by such a glum look (never looked like that in the movie - always either flushed and determined or smiling confidently) and sculpted hair that could have been better done.

I reckon we'll see all the big Avengers names with some emotion in their faces (this will be the sixth they have done of Tony Stark if you think about it!).

Definitely going to buy this! Only problem: November 2012 will mean April 2013 :(:(:(:(Good post and, I hope you re right.I do nt own Thor but I ll be looking to buy one and I hope he s got that angry expression.he s going to be a major player in this from what I can see.got my tickets today and I'm all set!!

I thought the same as you, bud. I just knew it was helmetless all the way. But even with a good HS I still think I'm posing it with the helmet on. HT did it again! I'm blown away at the fact that it doesn't matter how CE looks in the movie, this figure came out looking awesome.

Well done.

My first reaction was a bit of disappointment with the head sculpt without the mask. But to be fair this was only because I hoped to use the sculpt on the First Avenger figure like this.
http://i.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel/i/mg/2/20/4d4c24bfdac9c/detail.jpg

But, it looks from the various trailers and pics from the Avengers so far that Cap does spend a lot of action time without his mask and so the expression on the Avengers Cap seems appropriate for that figure.

I think it looks like Evans- I see why some might not think it looks as much like him compared to the masked sculpt, but intense expressions like that can change the way we might perceive real people look a bit too. People can make some pretty crazy faces that distort how they look some.

So, I think the figure does look good- it certainly makes the best of what I think is a poor costume design. I think the figure would look great displayed. I do like BD shield.

I think in the end I might have to wait to see how much I like Cap in the Avengers movie before deciding to buy it. They may re-do his costume in the Captain America 2 movie too so I don't feel that this is necessarily the definitive modern movie Cap either. I am also still hoping for the USO Rescue Cap to come out so I can get the head sculpt I am looking for. The action expression on the Avengers Cap seems to leave room for still making the USO Rescue figure with its own distinctive sculpt.

I also don't think I can afford to put together the whole Avengers team, if I was planning too I think this Cap would be a must have. If I change my mind and find myself getting the whole team I would defiantly grab him. This Avengers Cap figure is pretty tempting in its own right though.

As for now my Marvel figures consists of Rami's Spider-man and First Avengers Cap and I am hoping to someday pick up an X-men Origin Wolverine (I wish they would re-release this). This way I have Spidey, an Avenger and hopefully someday an X-men to represent the Marvel movies on my shelves. However, if the Avengers Hulk figure looks bad-ass I might have to add him in too.

I love the Iron Man figures and Thor but don't have them and I know once I got a version of them I would feel the need to get the whole Avengers team- so right now I am trying to resist that urge. Great products like this new Avengers Cap figure makes it hard to resist I have to admit.

I think this figure and both the heads look amazing and just like Evans, I'm so glad we aren't getting a neutral expression, the Thor figure has a really good likeness but the expression was very bland and that's where it got a lot of criticism, but know that we get this head sculpt showing emotion some people wan't it to have neutral expression?.... I don't get it :slap

With a neutral expression almost every action pose you get a figure into looks stupid and just looks like the figure is thinking "why the f___ am I doing this", whereas this expression will look awesome in any pose.

Also for you people wanting an neutral expression wait until USO Cap.

Anyway this figure is bought, two shields and two heads.. wow, can't wait for Thor,Iron Man,Hulk and Widow and I hope they blow us away with Thor's HS and that it has a angry expression.

Maybe collectors or fans associate too much of rage, gritting teeth, or angry expressions with guys like the Batman or Hulk, or say Wolverine. Very few people would've liked an angry expression on Chris Reeve Supes, I believe (unless he was portrayed as the 'evil Supes'). Guess its the way we percieve them.

Having said that, I like both the sculpts but when I display him, I am sure I wouldn't want to pose him unmasked. :peace

My impression of the figure is good, I have the first release and that costume is better, but this new one is nice, I like that you get two shields and the alien gun, but the accessoires are lite on this. truely the best part of the figure is the evans sculpt and is the reason that I may pick this up, but the angry sculpt would have been better placed on the masked head imo. All in all its a cool figure and I will most likely get it.
