The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Action Figures - The Good, The Bad And The Ugly - Contains Final Episode Spoilers

With the final episode of the Disney+ The Falcon And The Winter Soldier series having aired yesterday I thought it would be fun to look at how the action figures based on the show coming from Hasbro and Diamond Select Toys stack up with the actual characters.

Note you should wait until you've watched the final episode of the show before reading this article. Also note some of these figures have not yet been officially announced by the companies and we will be referencing figure images that leaked out several weeks ago for some of these. The official reveals for all of these should be coming this Monday (4/26).

From Hasbro we have seen a total of 5 figures coming to the Marvel Legends line with John Walker (Captain America), Baron Zemo, Winter Soldier, John Walker (USAgent) and Sam Wilson (Captain America). Out of these 5 figures, 2 have been officially revealed (Zemo, John Walker Captain America), 2 we have seen blurry in-hand images leak out for (Winter Soldier, John Walker USAgent) and one we have yet to see at all (Sam Wilson Captain America).

From Diamond Select Toys we have seen images for the one Marvel Select 7" Sam Wilson Captain America figure which will be a Disney Store exclusive.

So for Marvel Legends lets first take a look at the John Walker Captain America figure which is being released as a Walmart exclusive.

Other than perhaps adding so 5 o'clock shadow to the face I think Hasbro has nailed this figure pretty good with both the masked and unmasked head sculpt. The likeness to actor Wyatt Russell with the unmasked head seems to be pretty dead on. Based on images we are giving Hasbro an A+ on their Marvel Legends John Walker Captain America figure.

Next up is the Marvel Legends Baron Zemo figure.

It was nice Hasbro gave us both the unmasked and masked headsculpt even though Zemo barley wore the mask in the show. Again Hasbro seems to have nailed the likeness of actor Daniel Brühl with the unmasked headsculpt. Based on images we are also giving Hasbro and A+ for this one.

So for the next two, we only have these blurry images and while I doubt it, I suppose it's possible the final released versions could change from what is shown here. For now we will say these grades are tentative and if we see something better when official images are released on Monday, we will re-access these grades then.

So first we have the Marvel Legends Winter Soldier.

Overall a pretty basic figure but it seems to be a nice update to the previous Winter Soldier figures we have gotten. The quality of the image makes it hard to say for certain how good the likeness is, but for now I am going to give this one an A.

For the final Marvel Legend figure we have seen, we have John Walker USAgent.

Sadly this is by far the weakest figure in the line as it appears all they did was just repaint their Captain America version black. They didn't include the white stripes on his chest and they still have the star on his helmet. The symbol on his chest may be inaccurate as well but I can't say for sure. I can't fault the figure for not having a shield since they didn't show him with a shield as USAgent in the show. This is the one I hope will look different when we see the official images on Monday, but again I doubt it. My guess Hasbro had to base this one on concept art and not the final version. Customizes I am sure will have a pretty easy time making this one look more show accurate,and since I doubt this is the last time we will see USAgent in the MCU, I am sure Hasbro will get another crack at him at some point. Based on this image I am giving this one a D.

Again we have not yet seen any images for the Marvel Legends Sam Wilson Captain America, so we will have to wait until Monday to grade that one. We know the Build-A-Item for the Disney+ wave these figures will be part of are Sam's wings. So I hope Hasbro makes them very show accurate and includes features like a detachable Red Wing, retractable wings and the ability to attach the shield on his back. Hasbro dropped the ball on the comic book version of Sam Wilson as Captain America when they didn't even bother to include wings, so hopefully this figure will more than make up for that.

Now while we haven't yet seen the Hasbro version of Sam Wilson as Captain America, we have seen the 7" Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select one. Again this one will be sold as a Disney Store exclusive. My guess it will be officially revealed through Marvel on Monday, but I don't know if it will go up for pre-order then or not.

Overall not a bad looking figure. DST's seems to have captured the likeness of Anthony Mackie and his new Captain America costume. The figure doesn't seem to have much for features and accessories though. Based on images it does not appear they included a detachable Red Wing or gave the shield the ability to be stored on the figures back. The wings however do appear to be detachable For now based on the images we've seen I am giving this one a B.

So which Falcon And The Winter Sold... or is it Captain America And The Winter Soldier figures are you most looking forward to? Also be sure to check back Monday afternoon for better looks at all of these figures.

I'm torn on these. I have a large collection of MCU figures. Not tons of room for Captain America Falcon. Zemo is pretty much a must for me and as USAgent is one of favorites I'll most likely want him too. It's going to depend if any of these are part of a wave of figures and what the BaF might be.

Sam's FalCap suit was awesome, they really put in the work there . . . which is why I knew no action figure could ever do it justice.

They kinda screwed up on the hair, but otherwise, the Walker/Cap is a good enough figure. The stripes and "A" on Walker's U.S.Agent helmet are a minor gripe, but I can see where it would bug people.

These are all part of the same wave (except Walmart exclusive John Walker Cap).  Along with the previously announced Scarlet Witch & White Vision and the upcoming Loki they will be part of the Disney+ Wave with the Falcon Cap BAF wings.  You can even see them in the photos...

Personally I would say right now Wanda is my top priority from this wave. I’ll probably wait in Falcon as they will inevitably tweak his costume for the movie and no doubt he will get another wave/figure at that time, possibly one with wings included.

Bucky, Zemo and vision are all ‘maybes’ for me, I’ll probably wait and see if I can get them on sale. Not much interest in usagent at this point or John Walker cap,

wish they had made a Val figure but what are you gonna do.
