Hot Toys Brings Back 2012 Captain America for a New Figure
Yes, that certainly is America’s…posterior. Fresh off of its revival in Avengers: Endgame, the suit worn by 2012 Captain America in the first Avengers movie gets a toy update. Cap fanboy Phil Coulson, who died for the first of several times soon thereafter, conceived the suit. At the time, it was the most classic comics-accurate version we’d seen yet. More recently, it became the “butt” of a joke about Steve Rogers’ shapely glutes. This revived interest in the old look, compared to the darker and less showy outfit worn into battle against Thanos.
Per Hot Toys, “Skillfully crafted based on the screen appearance of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in Avengers: Endgame, the Captain America (2012 Version) figure features a newly developed helmeted head sculpt and an un-helmeted head sculpt, a muscular body with enhanced articulation portraying Captain America’s toned body, a finely tailored outfit with star emblem on the chest, the star-spangled shield, Loki’s scepter with carrying case and a movie-themed figure stand.”
For film accuracy, collectors may require two, so the unhelmeted modern version in disguise can take on his masked prior self. Plenty will be available to go around. Hot Toys, as we know, can do this all day. Just remember that Bucky lives!
