Series: Marvel Universe; Secret Wars Comic Packs
Release Date: 2009
Comments: After a long run of figures at a 5″ scale, then 6-7″ scale for Marvel legends; HASBRO has moved the Marvel universe to their popular 3 3/4″ scale. Following the sucess of Star Wars and G.I. Joe comic packs, Marvel packs are a natural fit; these being comic book characters and all that. For their first venture, HASBRO chose the 12 issue limited series “Secret Wars”.
Comic pack #1 (featuring Secret Wars #1) includes Captain America and the villian Klaw. Cap here features and abundance of articulation – ankles, calf, knees, hips, waist, chest, shoulder, elbow, wrist and neck! This is a bendy Captain. Unfortunately because of the softish plastic used, its hard for Cap to hold many of the poses. This is a good effort, but I expect that this won’t be HASBRO’s last or best Captain America in this scale.
