  1. For me personally, I'm okay with the Zemo I got from the Winter Solider Movie wave(Build A Shield Mandroid) from years ago.  But if I didn't get that, I would of wanted this Zemo.  I do like that it is a more Classic looking version of this version of Zemo(Not counting his father/grandfather, depending on how often things get retcon), especially the colours used.  I suppose if I ever did get this 1 though, I would use the old ToyBiz as the Grandfather, this version as his Son, and the Mandroid Wave as the current/modern day Zemo(His grandson).
     

    At least in my city in Canada, most of the Walgreen Exclusives have shown up as EBGames/Game Stop Exclusives, however some look to only have 1 shipment and you never see it again(Like the Silver Surfer from years ago).

    Because it could easily try to play on nostalgia instead of doing anything new. I'm struggling to think of a show that got a revival after a long time and was just as good as it was.

    I think some would say that the recent Animaniacs is a good example of a show that's been gone since the late 1990's/very early 2000's, only to come back around 2020 or 2021.  From the little bit I've seen and from comments I've read online, it feels like the recent Animaniacs series is a continuation that took a approx 20 years Hiatus before it's return, instead of an entire new series. 

     

    Though I do wish they gave some focus on some of the other characters in this new series(Like Slappy The Squirrel, Buttons And Mindy, The Good Feathers, etc.), instead of just focusing on the Warner Bros and Sister, along with Pinky And The Brain(Though I do understand why they focus on those because they are the most well known or popular ones from the original series).

  3. While I love 6" Marvel Legends, I still miss the various super/well articulated 4" Marvel figures that Hasbro produced over the years.  How I usually treated the 2 scales was that 6" of characters in either my favourite costumes/looks, most of the time "Modern"(At the time), and/or character's design had more details that got brought out more in the 6".  The 4" scale figures were most of the time either "Classic" costumes(Up to before the 2000's at least), a decent amount of "Ultimate Marvel" looks, costumes/looks/designs that I either am only okay with or not a fan of(Like 1st Apperaence Wolverine.  I never wanted a 5" or 6" figure of that, but a 4" figure is fine since it's smaller), and/or characters who I am not a huge fan of but still want a figure of just to have them.  Of course, other times, it was whatever was available in whatever scale, and what I could get.

     

    As well, for different takes on certain costumes, I liked the different scales.  For example, I have the Comic Book Silver Centurion Iron Man figure in 4" scale, and if Hasbro ever does the Iron Man 3 Movie version of the Silver Centurion Armour, I would like to get that.  I have a modern 6" Jubliee(Which is what I wanted for my 6" X-men), but if had done a more classic 1990's Jubliee figure in the 4" scale, I would of loved to have gotten that for my 4" X-men.  For Firestar, I got the Classic look in the 4" scale, as I would hope down the road, the 6" scale figures does a look or 2 from the 1990's(Leather Jacket, yellow glasses, etc.). 

     

    For World War II Cap, I have a 4" Ultimate Cap, and a The First Avenger Cap from the Peggy Carter 2 pack for 6".  For Deadpool, even if they are both Red and Black, there designs of my 4" and 6" versions are different looking.  For Mysterio, I have the Comic Book look for 4", and the Far From Home Movie look for 6".

     

    Of course, for some characters, I got the same costumes and looks in both scales(Like Dr. Doom, Spidey in his standard Red and Blue look, and Black And Gold Wasp), but that's fine, as some characters didn't have different standard looks.

     

    What I loved about the 4" was that they sometimes went unique with the decos, which included the "Comic Book" shadows/shading, some metallic looks on some Black Suit Spidey's, and what not.  And I the various Multipacks they did, which for me, were usually good value, and help amass a decent amount of figures fast at good prices(At the time).  A good amount of my 4" Marvel Universe figures are from Multipacks/Comic Book 2 Packs more than single figures.

     

    Not a super fan of the "Retro" style 5POA 4" figures, though I do like that their heads are on a ball joint, and that the heads seem to be nicely sculpted, meaning you might be able to put those heads on some of the older 4" figures.  That Spidey head from the line I think has to be the best 4" head for Spidey.  But what really kills me about these Retro figures, is that they cost about $18-$20 Canadian, which is the same prices as the Wal-mart Exclusive 4" G.I. Joe Retro line, and the Super Articulated 4" Star Wars: Black Series figures.  I mean, I could be more forgiving if they were around $10-$13 Canadian(Which is the average price of the 5POA Star Wars figures), bit $18 Canadian is just too much for these.

     

    Will say that during those times after Marvel Universe ended and become Infinite Series and 4" Marvel Legends, I was surprised they didn't re-release the Jim Lee Rogue from that MU X-men Boxset.

  4. Going to want to get Dormammu, Arcade, and AIM Scientist Surpereme.  I am wondering if the BAF Dormammu head can fit on this body or not?  But even if it doesn't, I want to get it.  AIM Surpreme is going to look good with the rest of the AIM 2 pack I got.  And Arcade, well, I only really know him from the old SNES Spider-man X-men: Arcade's Revenge video game, so I kind of want to get him just for that.  And let's face it, unless Arcade is used in a future movie or cartoon series, I highly doubt we'll ever see another Arcade figure again(Unless Hasbro decides to repaint/redeco the figure down the road, either in the Vintage style packaging, "Fan" or Store Exclusive, multipack, etc.).  I kind of get a Kevin Bacon vibe with 1 of his heads.

     

    I may consider Red Skull in order to get a more classic look of the character, but it's not a high on my list, so I'm okay with leaving him.  Even more so since 6" Marvel Legends figures are now going to be about $33 Canadian, up from around $30 Canadian before hand.

  5. In regards to Rogue using her most well know 1990's Jim Lee inspired costume:

     

    "Coming soon from Marvel Legends: Re-issued Jim Lee Rogue, now with Circle Belt Buckle instead of Square Belt Buckle". 

     

    In all seriousness, while I would probably be okay with a new costume for Rouge, if the artist wants to use Rogue's most well known costume, I'm fine with it.  After all, sometimes styles come, go, and then come back again.  

  6. I personally don't see why not.  I think the Marvel Brand has gotten to the point that Hasbro could do or risk doing these designs.  I know for sure that there are some that wouldn't mind some of these versions of characters, and of course, gives them an excuse to help keep some well known name characters being released.

     

    I know a friend of mine who would actually love the 1970's T.V. Movie Cap, incluidng his motocycle, and seethrough window like shield.  Adn many have stated that they would like Bixby Dr. David Banner and Ferrigno Hulk. 

     

    As for the Spidey's well, all they have to do is appear the sequal to Into The Spiderverse animated movie, and they would be set.  Not to mention, Spidey would probably be the easiest, since it would only invovle a modified Spidey head sculpt, with apporate accessoires to complete the look.

  7. Why not.  If anything, it gives people more chances to get some other characters/villians.  Of course, some characters had some designs different from the comics(Like Doc Ock, Chameleon, and Mysterio to a degree I think is different from the comics), so they would require new or modified sculpts.  For the record, the upcoming Mysterio in this line is still more comic based, because of the suit is dark green and has those lines on it.  If it was truly based on the 1990's cartoon look, it would of been a light shade of green with no lines(Or maybe just 1 line around the abs area), and he would have a belt. 

     

    But others use the same designs from the comics(Classic or 1990's at the time) as well(Examples include the Goblins, Venom, Carnage, Electro, Rhino, Shocker, Scorpion, Vulture when he had the youth talons sucking capabilities, Kingpin, to name a few).   The only difference(If any) might be the shade of colours used on them.

     

    For example, that Scorpion figure from last year's Homecoming Wave was in Dark Metallic Green including his mouth.  A 1990's cartoon repaint in a lime green suit with dark green gloves, boots, part of mask, and undies, along with a flesh tone mouth area and the tip of the tail silver, would make it different from the pervious release in terms of paint and close to the 1990's cartoon look, which would still work for a comics look as well(Regardless if he did appear in the comics like this or not).

     

    Either way, it would be a good way for people who missed out in past releases(Regardless if they weren't collecting at the time, or didn't have any luck to due to poor release or scalpers) another shot at a character.  This also would help comic fans for the designs that are more or less the same as the comics.  While for Hasbro, it would help them make use of some past molds(Especially when they are character specific parts), and if required, gives them some new tooling if needed, which would give them more options in their belts for new releases down the road.

     

    In the Grand Scheme, Hasbro shouldn't just be limited to comics, and current other media, as past other media is fine with me.

  8. I like the look of Black Widow's suit, especially the bit of gold on her wrist stringers and on the front of the belt.  But does anyone think the suit looks a bit more like "Modern MCU" than something from the recent past?  I mean, I'm guessing the events of this movie takes place a few years before the events of the 1st Iron Man movie, so I guess around 2000 to 2006 at least.  I guess I was expecting a less "Busy" or simplistic looking suit, than a suit with different textures and line designs, because to me, it looks more like something she would wear in the Modern/Current MCU movies.  I like it still regardless. 

    Having said that, I guess you could say that her more simplistic looking suits she wore on Iron Man 2 and to lesser extend, the 1st Avengers Movie, were more like a Tactical SHIELD suit with the Avengers suit have a bit of Widow personality elements to it, so I guess I was expecting something a bit more along those lines.  But I guess it's not so simplistic so that it looks neat on film.  Either way, I may consider a Marvel Legends or Select figure based on this suit.

    Taskmaster's suit looks nice, and like the design.  Will admit, if I didn't get the Comic Book Modern/Ultimate Spider-man Cartoon Taskmaster figure, I would consider this figure.  However, I'm happy with what the Tasky I got. 

    Red Guardian looks nice from what little we see.  I'm guessing his suit is going to be strongly inspired by MCU's World War II Cap suit, with a few "Recent Past" design elements to it(I suppose more like a Cap suit before Civic War).  Depending on how the suit looks, I'll consider a Marvel Legends figure of this design if it gets made.

  9. While I suppose it is a cause for concern, especially with some of the Toy Licensing changes that have happened within the past 2 years(Power Rangers, DC Comics, etc.), I do believe Hasbro will keep the Marvel and Star Wars Licences.  Unless of course Disney decides they would rather shop it around to other companies, even more so if Mattel somehow gives them a load of cash for it.  I'm sure we'll know by SDCC the earliest, otherwise towards the end of the year.

     

    With all the product coming out this year, it sort of reminds me of ToyBiz's final year in 2006 when a whole bunch of stuff was coming out(More Waves, Exclusives, 2 packs, Multpack Boxsets, other somewhat connected 6" comic book lines like Spider-man, X-men, Fantastic Four and I think maybe Hulk, Spider-man And Friends Preschool line, Other Marvel Legends branded stuff like 4" figures, 12" figures, Masterworks, etc.).  

  10. The Hulk figure I think was actually from the around 2010 Marvel Legends 6" TRU Exclusive 2 packs, as it had Hulk(Which I think was a repaint and retool of the Wal-mart Exclusive Build A Red Hulk Wave) With Valkyrie.

     

    I'm sure a Classic looking ML 6" Ultron will come.  Just a matter of when.  I'm okay with that Iron Man 3 Marvel Legends release, but I would like it release just for people who want that Classic Look.  Having said that, people can always get the Marvel Select 7" Classic Ultron figure, especially since he's a Robot, his height can always change depending on how he rebuilds his body.  And I'm sure it will be imposing for those 6" figures as well, and it's still nicely articulated, just not super like Marvel Legends.

  11. I wasn't sure if I'd get this.  I mean it looks nice, and I like the costume, but I wasn't sure.  But after seeing that it has Swapping heads(Which I swear is Hasbro's Secret Weapon on getting me interested in buying a figure), I have to strongly consider it.  Especially more so if indeed a White Costume Emma Frost does come out(Which I assume would be almost a year later), it may not come with either or both heads at all.

     

    I'm guess if you got The Wolverine/Build A Puck Wave Emma Frost figure, you'd be able to swap the heads on these 2 if you like.  Can't say for sure if you could on that 1st Hasbro ML wave back in 2007, since that body mold is very skinny(Though I will say that the body was did have some nice sculpted details on it.  Just that ugly head).   

    Here's hoping that in Canada, EB Games will bring this over, since most of the Hasbro Wal-Greens Exclusives have been sold in Canada as EB Games Exclusives(At least since the ML Wal-Greens Punisher figure).  Hoever, I believe the Medusa figure never came at all since I never saw it, and I was looking for that one.

     

    I know that in recent years or issues, she wore a black but I did get why.  I do know that Modern Cyclops supposely died(Not From the Past Teen Cyclops) around or before she started to wear this costume, but that's it.  

     

    Works as a Store Exclusive I think because like most people have stated, they would of more like a White Costume version, as the Black Costume isn't well known, and only a few would get it either because they like it or because of the "Exclusive" banner.  I mean, could you guys imagine if they did the White Costume version as the Exclusive?  People would complain to no end as to why it's an exclusive.  

     

     

     

  12. Looks like a good set.  Will go well with the old Homecoming 2 pack.  Only thing I'm a bit disappointed is that they didn't include a swapping small Spidey-Eyes so that you can mimic the whole eyes being able to be expressive.  Would of been good for those who didn't get the Regular Homecoming Suit Spidey I think(Like myself.  I skipped on that because I knew I was going to be getting the 2 pack with Iron Man).  But that's just me. 

  13. Still wish they took the time to sculpt the web lines on the top part of the suit instead of making it plain.  Would then matched the sculpted web lines on the Mask.  Without the sculpted web lines on the body, or maybe even the lines being painted, the suit looks a bit plain and not accurate. 

     

    Does the swapping arm have a basic elbow joint?  1 of the photos looks like it might have, but I can't say for sure.  If so, weird that they don't bother with basic elbow and knee joints on the rest of the figure.

  14. This trailer looks good.  I'm still interested in Fox's final X-men movie.  Overall, they've done a good or at least decent job.  Will have to see if my brother wants to see this in theatres, as we've already committed to Endgame(Can only go to a movie theatre once or twice a year, and it's normally during the Late Spring to mid-Summer time). 

     

    Do like that the Phoenix powers inside her is enhanced thanks their trip to Space.

     

    The only thing I'm disappointed in is that Jean's Dark Phoenix costume is pretty much the same as the one from X3: The Last Stand.  Was hoping for something a bit more Phoenix like.  Maybe even if they took her X-men costume in this movie(The Dark Blue with the Yellow "X") and turned it into a Red with Orange X, and I think would of looked nicer(In a way, homage to her X-Factor Red Costume).  Could say that her she just changed the look and/or colours of her costume just because.  Maybe give her some Red Leather pants and knee high black boots to fit with the whole look this X-men Movie Universe has had, though that might be me trying to sexualized this version of Dark Phoenix a little bit.  Though for Dark Phoenix, that might make a bit of sense, since she ideally would be tapping into a darker side of herself.

     

    That white hair woman, is it suppose to be Lilandra?  If so, would be kind of neat if she and Charles still had some sort of flirting going on between the 2, even if this woman has her own agenda in using Jean as a Weapon, as Charles tries to stop her.

  15. So sad to read about this.  Found out a few minutes ago when I signed out of my e-mail account.  Already having a not so good day today(Personal reasons), but this just adds to it.  Had to come here to comment at least in respect for the man.

     

    I have to say that I'm officially Old.  After we lost Adam West(1960's T.V. Batman) back in 2017.  I mentioned that once Stan Lee dies, I'll know I'm Old for sure.  Well, it appears that day has happened. 

     

    It just seems so impossible that he could die.  In all the recent interviews I've seen him in, it just didn't seem possible.  Always seem to have a sense of energy in him, like he could almost never die.  But in the end, he was still a mortal like all of us, and eventually his time came up.  Still, I felt he could of lived to at least 100.

     

    So sorry to read that that his last year or 2 in life wasn't a good one.  Hope he gets the Peace he deserves.  World is a bit less bright now that he's gone, but in a way, he'll always be around thanks to the influence in the Marvel characters he helped created, and the influence in comics in general.   So long Stan The Man.

     

    "Excelsior!" indeed.

     

     

  16. I really like this series of looking at the different costumes and looks of the characters, as well as your opinion on if it needs a remake or not. I do want to add a few things:

     

    - While the Spider-man Unlimited Cartoon inspired figure was made during ToyBiz's final years in their Spider-man Classics line(Spin N Trap Spider-man), I do think we could use an updated one. The figure didn't have the cape, maybe use a bit of blue shading if they stick with black on the suit, and the lenses could be a bit of the yellow side than white that the figure used. Perhaps using the cape from the Spidey 2099 figure on a figure. If they really wanted to, they could maybe do 3 colour variants: the 1 used in the show(Which had more red), the preproduction colour scheme(Which had more blue/black, and was almost a reverse of the final show colours. I think this was when the show was still undecided if it was going to be 2099 Spidey or Peter Parker Spidey), and a see thorugh plastic version to repersent the suit in Stealth Mode.

     

    - Spider-woman late 1970's/early 1980's Cartoon colours(Wasn't on your list): Okay, so really, the only difference between cartoon Spider-woman and Comic Spider-woman at the time, was basically that the lenses of the mask on cartoon was yellow, while comics was white, and most likely never going to happen. Still, if Hasbro ever felt they need to re-release the Jessica Drew classic Spider-woman in a way that is different from the 2015 release, they could use the brighter colours and colour the lenses yellow. Again, such a minor thing that it will never happen, unless I guess they wanted to do it in some sort of Store Exclusive 2 or 3 pack. And hey, at least it sort of gives people another shot at Classic costume Jessica Spider-woman instead of resorting to scalpers.

     

    - Modern Jessica Drew Spider-woman Costume(You called it "All New All Different"): If or when Hasbro ever does make this figure, I hope they give it removable glasses, similar to the recent Captain America Legends Modern Mockingbird figure. Could make the figure more desirable if it allows you to have a unmasked Jessica Drew figure, especially for head swapping purposes on the 2015 Spider-woman figure(Especially for those who aren't fans of the modern costume). From the number of photos of comic book art I've seen, sometimes, the glasses look like normal glasses while other times, it looks like there is something extra on the top part of the glasses(It's not much, but it does make a difference). It would be cheaper for Hasbro to just repaint the Mockingbird glasses(Which I would be totally be okay with), but I suppose they could spend the money on the glasses with the extra stuff. Or give fans both glasses so that fans can pick an choose her look, especially since they would be small accessories anyways.

     

    - Pregnant Modern Jessica Drew Spider-woman Costume: Most likely Never going to happen, especially if certain groups go all fussy over it, even more so if it ended up on the 6:00p.m. News on a slow news day(I seem to recall people freaking out about Pregnant Barbie Doll from the late 1980's or 1990's). The only way it would really work is as a either Online or Convention Exclusive of some sort for a limited run. Still give it the removable glasses. Having said that, if they ever did do a "Baby Bump Female" mold, they could maybe re-use it for Susan Storm, Crystal, Medusa, Jessica Jones, and any other female Marvel character when they were pregnant. Or if they are really lazy, for a over weight female character.

  17. I personally think the set is neat as it is. Bit pricy in Canada, but then again, it's no different than if you bought 3 x 6" Marvel Legends figures in Canada. My only grips of the set are:

     

    - Nick Fury should of came with the Cosmic Cube/Teseeract, especially since this figure has the same hand that the 6" Legends Red Skull from The Winter Solider line came with in order for that figure to hold his Cube(In which they gave the Red Skull a new hand for him to hold). To make it sweeter, maybe even include a Suitcase to store the Cube in(Just like in the opening part of the 1st Avengers movie). Would of given people another chance to get the Cube for their 6" figures. Maybe also give Fury a Missile Launcher similar to what he used in the movie.

     

    - There should of been 1 Hand Gun for all 3, instead of just 2 guns in the set. Just makes sense since they are all Agents, to have at least 1 sidearm for each of them, even if Colseon comes with the Destoryer Blaster.

     

    - After reading a review of the set at OAFE, I would have to agree that they should of put a good amount of weapons in the set, to help add value to it. Kind of also make the 3 Pack a Weapon Pack as well.

     

    Other than that, I do think it's still a cool set.

  18. Only need 1. I do like the idea that you can use the figure as 3 different people. Will most likely stay as JJJ. Hammerhead, I'll just swap Jameson's head out, since it would be rare for the 2 of them to be together. Chameleon however might be difficult since he has impersonated Jameson from time to time, so there has to be an interaction between them. Maybe I'll get a loose ML based body, and try and customize/repaint to a look similar to the 1990's Spider-man cartoon series look..

  19. I hope Hasbro doesn't plan on doing any Swaps or Varaints for this TRU Exclusive Wave(Can't really see it happening for a Store Exclusive, but you never know). But if they decide to do so, I hope that Modern Rogue that was suppose to come out in the 2013 The Wolverine Legends line is 1 of the figures. At least you only need 4 out of the 5 figures to build Modern Jubilee, which is why I will most likely pick the 4 needed. I really like the Modern Jubilee look. I'll consider Wolverine when I see it in person. Also nice that this TRU Store Exclusive wave isn't a fully 6-8 figure wave as well.

     

    The deco of the Unmasked Wolverine's costume I think should of been used on the Masked Wolverine figure back in 2013's The Wolverine Legends line. The 1 from The Wolverine Legends always to me looks incomplete because he doesn't have the X logos on him. It looks like Wolverine has a piece of rubber or plastic being used to represent him being unmasked. If that plastic/rubber piece is removable when you pop the head off, then that will make me wonder why Hasbro didn't just put in a extra swapping Masked head for Wolverine so that fans of this costume can have a masked and unmasked look. Course, I can't rule out that this will cause people to buy last year's Wolverine figure just to get the Masked Head(Something I'm thinking of do if I do pick up the TRU Exclusive Wolverine).

  20. For the BAF Jubilee wave, anyone knows if you have to buy 3 or 6 figures to complete her? Because if it's just 3(Like say the 3 Villian figures that each have a variant), I might be okay with it, but it's all 6, I'm not sure. I remember how hard it was for me to finally build Terrax when I decided I wanted both Variant Commander Rogers and Stealth Iron Man instead of the regular verisons, and how much of a pain that was to finally complete(Normally, I don't buy all the figures of a BAF wave, unless I get like 4 or 5 out of 6 figures, and I get some of the figures at a good price).

     

    For Wave 3 Iron Man 3 line, defently going to want Pepper Potts as Rescue. That said, I'm surprised they haven't released that 6" Whiplash figure they showed a prototype of back in 2010.

     

    For Captain America: The Winter Soilder, defently going to want Movie Black Widow and Comic Book Modern Baron Zemo. Will consider Movie Winter Soilder, and Cap's costume in the movie, but I still need to see what the 4" verisons are going to look like 1st, because if those look good enough, I'll get those.

     

    For Spider-man, that Classic/1980's-1990's Black Cat does look really nice. I wonder if they are going to do a variant of Black Cat where they replace the black with blue, because in that Classic costume, they sometimes either colour it dark blue in the comics, or some statues sometimes make it a shinny blue. Or even do a variant were it's the modern costume? Will decide on Black Cat once we get more details, probably by Toy Fair 2014.

     

    Really do hope they keep their promise on releasing the variant figures of the various waves, and that they consider keeping the Build A Figure piece(Though to be honest, if they did that, that would mean they would have to consider re-releasing the other figures that make up the Build A Figure for those waves). Otherwise, it sounds like they may instead just release them without the Build A Figure pieces as singles or 2 packs. It wouldn't necessary affect me, but I do know that it would upset a lot of people. An example of this was in DCUC, they had a wave with Hawkgirl and Gentleman Ghost who were shortpackage/hard to find, as they had pieces to complete Giganta. Mattel did re-release them in a V.S. 2 pack, but many people were upset that they didn't come with the 2 Build A Figure pieces to complete Giganta(Which to me, doesn't make sense with one 2 pack, unless you were doing 2 packs of all the other figures in that wave, or re-release the other figures of the wave as singles. Otherwise, you only have one 2 pack with 2 BAF pieces, but the single figures are no longer around or hard to find).

     

    Maybe Hasbro should also consider re-releasing those Wal-mart Exclusive Marvel Movie 6" figures in some format, but this time, in regular retail(Best option, but maybe for a wave with no Build A Figure pieces), or as a different store exclusive (Not Wal-mart, but maybe this time as Target or Toys R Us Exclusives). Maybe use the 2 Caps and Nick Fury(1st movie and Avengers) in the Winter Soilder Movie line(Maybe with no Build A Figure pieces for those who already got them), and if they do decide to do a Thor Movie line, a repainted Thor in 2nd move colours with a swappable head(Build A Figure Piece), and Avengers Loki in both Avengers(No Build A Figure piece unless they decide to do variants) and Movie 2 colours(Build A Figure Piece).

  21. ToyBiz's Face Off 2 Pack Cap currently the best 6" Comic Book Steve Rogers Cap out there(I'm mention Comic Book Rogers Cap, because there is now some 6" Movie Caps, as well as at least 1 Bucky Cap). It really captures the modern look of Cap(Well, before the whole upcoming Marvel NOW event at least). Nicely sculpted, very well articulated, has straps on the shield, and the belt is a seaparte piece made of a rubber like material. And it really just looks awesome. The Red Skull in the set I like and is good too, even if it's not in a traditional Red Skull costume.

     

    That said, I should note that Face Off Cap doesn't have a star on his back. However, I fixed that by putting a piece of white sticker over the Face Off Cap's Star on his chest, traced it with pencil, remove the white sticker and cut out the star, erase any pencil lines, and stuck the new Star Sticker on the back just above the hole on the figure's back.

     

    I should also note, that at least on mine, the chest/ab joint is stuck/frozen, as I'm guessing the paint on my figure was really thick or something. That said, it was probably only my figure, as the few other reviews I've seen and read don't have that problem. That said, it is something to think about, and maybe even ask if you are buying a loose 1. Oh, and another thing, be careful with the individual fingers, for they may pop out of the hand if the pegs/joints aren't assembled properly. Dispute all this though, this is the still the best 6" Comic Book Rogers Cap.

     

    Of course, keep in mind that Hasbro will probably do a more traditional Comic Book Rogers Cap eventually, espeically since they have the shield sculpt, and the fact that they have just recently started to release U.S. Agent. So I can see Hasbro repainting U.S. Agent mold as Rogers Cap(Though I think they should consider doing a different head sculpt and not just repaint the U.S. Agent head. But that's just me).
