Hot Toys wields the shield with a Sam Wilson as Captain America figure

Hot Toys Captain America (1)

Disney’s two for two on the TV side of its Marvel offerings, thanks to WandaVision kicking off a thoroughly weird new take on the MCU and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier charting a new course for who should wield the shield now that Steve Rogers has contracted a case of being old as heck. Sam Wilson’s debut as the Falcon was always going to end with him assuming the mantle of Captain America, and that isn’t just a legacy that he has earned. He looks damn good in it as well!

A star-spangled Avenger with wings of patriotic freedom, Sam’s Captain America outfit is pure liberty with a few Wakandan influences. With Bucky having already received the Hot Toys treatment, Sam’s sixth-scale tie-in was inevitable. And in the paraphrased words of Jaws, I’m going to need a bigger shelf if I want to display this hero taking flight as Captain America.

The most immediate attention-getter on this figure are the pair of Vibranium wings, that stretch to 80cm when fully opened. They’re also articulated, so you can pull off quite a few poses with them and fold them in for defensive purposes in case you have any HYDRA toys lurking about. As for the costume, it has embossed patterns, metal highlights, and all the other elements that you’d expect from a Hot Toys figure.

Accessories include a Redwing drone, an iconic Vibranium frisbee/shield, a bunch of extra hands, and a specially designed dynamic figure stand to help Sam lift off. All that and a headsculpt which looks very much like actor Anthony Mackie, who is also well known for regularly attending Comic Con Africa.
