XM Studios Captain America

Might as well start this thread since it didn't exist and I just got my statue! lol

Only managed to take a few shots before sun went down. Will take more and put up a review so far but daayuum this is awesome!

This Captain America looks like a giant 1/4 scale Bowen Statue, which is a good thing. This is really nice congrats.

Does it come with the flag? I think I like the flag display better.

Yes, it comes with multiple switchout hands and one of them has the space for which you place the metal flagpole and then connect the flag to the pole.

That's what makes these so awesome to me. The amount of switch out parts that come with the statue that allows you to have different displays.

It comes with 2 shield hands, two regular hands, and a flag hand. Honestly, this is one of the nicest statues I have seen since I started collecting. I wish I could afford them. Congrats AJ this is AMAZING. Can't wait to see the painted proto of the IronMan Mark VII

I am impressed by the quality of work and how closely it resembles the prototype. paint lines are clean, and honestly the fact that they could get such clean lines on the flag makes me call BS on sideshow that they couldn't paint the S on the back of Superman's Cape because it would be too difficult or look funny. Fit finish, total package presentation I would give this a 10/10 and is the only Classic Cap statue I need in my collection (and why I am selling the SS one). One improvement I would've made was instead of the fisted left hand I would've had him pointing forward but that's a minor nitpick and I'm sure we could have some customizers create one =).

In my opinion compared to the SS PF, yes SS's does have more switch out options and yes you can represent 2 separate eras with theirs (switch out helmet head and different shield), but the awkward hands, and badly painted face and lips and odd tilt of his head position makes me feel it has less presence than this statue. The shorts and cloth always looked odd to me as well. Seeing XM's cap with flag in hand it is a truly majestic and patriotic picture as I stare at this statue.

More pics from today before I box him back up for good:
