Concept Art Captain America Civil War (18)

If I ever find myself lucky enough to go to the San Diego Comic Con, then do me a favour and impound my credit card. Sure, I might get a chance to hobknob with comic book royalty and sure it’ll be fun to see trailers for movies mere minutes before they’re leaked onto the internet, but there’s also a very real chance that I’m going to bankrupt myself and buy too much merch.

If I wander past the Hot Toys stall, chances are high that I’ll walk out with boxes of action figures and far fewer organs than I normally have inside my torso. Especially when the company is pumping out upcoming exclusives such as a black-suited Captain America. Fun fact, one of the ideas tossed around for Captain America: Civil War included having Steve Rogers suit up in black for the civil dispute ahead. Artist Ryan Meinderding still came up with the concept art, which looked like this:

And obviously, Hot Toys decided that they could earn some extra scratch by creating a figure which their most diehard fans would go gaga for. Well played, you plastic cocaine distributors, well played. Here’s a closer look at the figure and what’ll you find in the box:

The 1/6th scale Captain America Collectible Figure is crafted based on the appearance of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in the concept art of Captain America: Civil War with meticulous craftsmanship.

It features a newly painted helmeted head sculpt with two interchangeable lower faces capturing Chris Evan’s facial expressions, a newly developed body which naturally portray Captain America’s muscularly toned body, a brand new Captain America battle suit in black with scale pattern and silver Avengers’ logo on the chest, Cap’s ironic circular shield, a black and white heater shield, and a specially designed Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years themed figure stand!

The 1/6th scale Captain America (Concept Art Version) Collectible Figure specially features:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of Chris Evans as Captain America in Captain America: Civil War
  • A newly painted Captain America helmeted head sculpt with two (2) interchangeable lower part of faces capturing Chris Evans’s facial expressions (neutral and angry expression)

Sure, it may be the same as other Captain America figures, but on the other hand he now has two shields so take my money dammit. Or Kervyn’s liver, whichever is easiest.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
