#28: Marvel Legends Infinite Series Captain America The Winter Soldier - Captain America

There are a whopping four Marvel movies coming out this year, and we're off to a great start with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The first wave of toys was pretty easy to find, but the second wave, which has all the figures I wanted has proven more elusive. Target had a sale on Captain America toys the week the movie was released, so I was able to purchase this figure from the website. This is Cap's new "stealth" suit for the movie, based on the costume he wore in the comics when he was the director of Shield. It's a very nice looking figure, with the high standard of articulation one expects from Marvel Legends figures. Naturally, he comes armed with his trusty shield, painted in more subdued colors this time around. The shield has two straps, so Cap can hold it on his arm, but can't mount it on his back (which would have been a cool display option).

Cap also includes a couple of alternate hands and an alternate head. Each hand gets a fist, and the right hand also gets a saluting hand, while the left gets a pointing hand. The alternate unmasked head is kind of disappointing because it looks nothing like Chris Evans. It's a very Steve Rogers looking head, but an actor likeness would have been appreciated. Also included is a build a figure piece, the Mandroid's leg (more on that later).
