Each week we take a close look at some of the coolest comic book collectible figures around. With all the talk about a little movie called The Avengers, what better time to get a close look a Captain America figure from Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys.
This is the Sixth Scale figure inspired from Captain America: The First Avenger. You can immediately see the amount of detail put into the figure, which is exactly what you'd expect from Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys.
He comes with over 30 points of articulation, 9 interchangeable gloved hands, realistic clothing, his shield (of course), a machine gun, a pistol and a stand with the movie logo. Even though he comes with a stand, you'll see in the picture above and the rest below, he stands just fine without it. You can position him in many poses and it is an extremely detailed and amazing piece that would look great included in your collection. His facial likeness to Chris Evans is almost creepy as it looks like he's peering into your soul.
If you're familiar with these figures, you have an idea of the price. It goes for $169.99 and you can order it directly from Sideshow Collectibles (and check out more information) by clicking here.
Here's some more pictures taken by Norman Chan.
You can see that Captain America can take on any sort of Stormtroopers. I have to say this is one of the coolest figures I've gotten my hands on. Again, check out Sideshow Collectibles for more information.
I could continue to describe how great looking this figure is, but how about taking a quick look at him in the video below:
