I do like that dark cel-shaded look on the cowl.

Yeah, that is a nice detail! I am surprised Marvel Legends never did that on the cowl of a Cap figure, considering it was prominent in the comics, as I remember. I think the Mego Cap in the seventies may have even gotten that right.

I'm not that impressed with this offering from Diamond, they have been knocking it out of the park lately, but this seems like a step backwards, this definitely has odd proportions, and a small head, the articulation seems weird, this has more of a Toybiz vibe then a 2023 DST figure to me, it is cool they gave him the old style shield though, and clearly 2 heads, a cellshaded one and a regular one.

This has to be homage to first Toybiz ML Cap, proportions and design elements are too similar to be just a coincidence, I wonder if it was originally sculptor's pitch for ML anniversary line, which declined for some reason, since there's couple of sculptors who work both for DST and Hasbro.

 

The proportions and sculpture do seem like a throwback to the ToyBiz wave 1 Cap.--but it seems to me like both ML and Select have been showing slightly softer sculpts over the past while.

Not usually a big Diamond Select guy but this one is looking great! I'd be in a bigger hurry to preorder if they scaled with marvel legends but unfortunately, space is already a bit limited.  It isn't always easy collecting on a budget! You can definitely see the work they put into this and I'm sure this will be a great offering for all the Diamond Select collectors out there.

I don't know what changed in my perception but now that Cap looks so much better than the initial promo, his weird promotions somehow work because they do seem to invoke a comic book style more, true power of good photography, if only they posted these pics first then the initially impression (and preorder numbers) would have been different.
