I wasn’t going to pick the Captain America figure up from the new Marvel Select series based on the hit movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, until DST went and did this. The Falcon was enough for me to throw down some hard-earned cash, but now that they are doing this battle-damaged variant looks like good ‘ol Steve Rogers will find a spot on my shelf as well. Check out the official press release from Diamond Select Toys!
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier number one at the box office, interest in the star-spangled Avenger is at an all-time high! The action-packed thriller sees Captain America teaming up with the Falcon and the Black Widow for one of the toughest battles of his career, and now Diamond Select Toys is teaming up with MarvelStore.com to create an exclusive battle-damaged figure of the hero, available May 19!
Starting on May 19, MarvelStore.com will be the only place to order the Marvel Select Unmasked Captain America figure, featuring an exclusive head sculpt of Steve Rogers, as well as a battle-damaged version of his stealth uniform. An exclusive battle-damaged version of Cap’s shield will be included in the packaging, as well as an interchangeable masked head and a diorama display base modeled after the SHIELD helicarriers seen in the film. All will come packaged in the distinctive Marvel Select packaging, suitable for display and featuring spine artwork for easy shelf reference.
After May 27th, the Marvel Select Unmasked Captain America will be made available on DisneyStore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada. Then, in late June, MarvelStore.com, DisneyStore.com and Disney Stores will offer the Marvel Select Falcon action figure, based on the movie look of Cap’s new friend and partner Sam Wilson. The figure bears the likeness of actor Anthony Mackie and features removable wings, as well as a helicarrier base.
