The Avengers Captain America Marvel Comics Action Figure by Toy Biz


"Time’s up... sucker!"... Eso es lo que diría este personaje en uno de los juegos de arcada que más me gustan: Marvel Super Heroes. Y sí, el tiempo para conseguir una figura como esta, se acabó... Suckaaaaa !!!. 

Aunque no lo crean, se puede considerar una figura "vintage" pues, a pesar de que su manufactura es relativamente reciente (1999), la marca Toy Biz (adquirida por Hasbro) ya no fabrica figuras de colección, sino juguetes didácticos infantiles (!!!???). 

Por esa misma razón, las figuras de esta marca se convirtieron automáticamente en clásicos, difíciles de conseguir. 

Esta muestra es una versión del Capitán América a partir de una serie animada del canal Fox Kids. 

Me encanta su estilo "quijada cuadrada retro" y aunque su nivel de articulación es básico, su trabajo de pintura y esquema de color son realmente atractivos.

Es una figura de 5" de alto, que viene acompañada por un droide que "explota" por medio de un mecanismo
magnético. El set completo incluye 10 personajes: Ant-Man, Wasp, Vision, Ultron, Haweye, Falcon, Tigra, Wonder Man, Kang y Captain America... 

Me gustaría conseguir el set completo, realmente vale la pena, pero son muy difíciles de encontrar hoy en día !!!...

"Time’s up... sucker!"... That’s what this character would say in one of the arcade games i like the most: Marvel Super Heroes. And yes, the time to get a figure like this, is over... Suckaaaaa !!!. 


Believe it or not, it can can be considered as a "vintage" figure since, although its manufacturing is relatively recent (1999), the Toy Biz trade mark (acquired by Hasbro) no longer manufactures collection figures, but children’s didactic toys (!!!???). 

For that very reason, the figures by this brand became automatically in classics, hard to come by. 

This sample is a version of the Captain America featured in an animated series from Fox Kids channel. 

I love its "retro squared jaw" style and albeit its level of articulation is basic, its paint job and color scheme are really appealing.

It’s a 5" high figure, accompanied by a droid that "explodes" by means of a magnetic mechanism. The set includes 10 characters: Ant-Man, Wasp, Vision, Ultron, Haweye, Falcon, Tigra,
Wonder Man, Kang and Captain America... 

I would like to get the whole set try to get them, really worth, but they are very hard to find nowadays !!!...

Captain America is one of my favourite Marvel characters. Maybe because the toy was made long ago, this figure seems over built and looks a bit like 'The tick'
