Picked up Civil War Cap. I'm not a huge fan of the armless classic line but for $50 it's not bad.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Gentle Giant

Arrived today

The photo’s are some quick out of the box shots.

For a while I’ve wanted to add some companion pieces to my Gentle Giant scale Black Widow statue. Some weeks ago I spotted Captain America going for a fair price on ebay from Reel Art Collectibles in Illinois, and pulled the trigger. One month later, he arrived!

As a statue, Captain America is a quality Gentle Giant piece, the same high quality as Black Widow. Heavy, not as heavy as Black Widow. The blue movie accurate outfit looks excellent. I’m neutral with regards to his face. Which is fitting, as while I’m not familiar with the actor, he played the part fittingly, as a clean-cut Captain America. The shield, which looks like metal, appears to be made from plastic.

If i wanted to be super picky - There is room for improvement with regards to the eyes which look cartoony, do not reflect those of the actor who played the part. There is something slightly effeminate about the face, which might have something to do with the eye mouth combination.

The ex display statue looks like new, although I did spot 3 faults:
1. Small piece missing on the rear upper right shoulder strap (no sign of it in the box)
2. Blue paint scuff on the left calf, atleast it appears to be a scuff, which can be fixed.
3. Two hairline line’s on the shield that appear to show a repair.

For the $200 price I’m not complaining.

The two other pieces I want to add to the line-up include:
Iron Man (Hajime Sorayama) from Gentle Giant
Sideshow Hulk Maquette, as Gentle Giant never made a scale Hulk

Maybe the line-up could be expanded further.
