Ranking The Avengers Movies Before CIVIL WAR


Captain America: Civil War is released in theaters today. This first film in “Phase 3” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a huge character roster.  Its spotlight scene in trailers and marketing show over a dozen Marvel characters on screen duking it out.  With Iron Man, Ant-Man, Spider-Man, and a full Avengers roster, Civil War feels less like a third Captain America movie, and more like the culmination of everything that has come before.

In preparation for this superhero “Monster Mash” here is a recap of the first two phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ranked from worst to best!

Pre-Order Alert: Hot Toys Falcon from Captain America: The Winter Soldier


I do what he does, only slower.

In Captain America: The Winter Soldier a standout new character was The Falcon, as played by Anthony Mackie.  As seen on screen this version of Sam Wilson is a deep character with a realistic backstory, having served in the war and seen his wingman shot down.  Plus he got to kick butt in some (literally) high-flying action!

Hasbro only released a version of this figure in 3.75-inch scale, but now you can get the single best replication of the movie Falcon from Hot Toys!

Not only does Hot Toys’ Falcon figure have the authentic movie likeness that we’ve come to expect, but he also has a plethora of extras…far more than I ever expectedincluding:

  • Approximately 30 cm tall
  • Four (4) pairs of interchangeable gloved palms including:
    – One (1) pair of fists
    – One (1) pair of relaxed palms
    – One (1) pair of palms for holding weapons
    – One (1) pair of palms for holding wings
  • One (1) dark grey and black vest
  • One (1) grey t-shirt
  • One (1) pair of black bicep guards
  • One (1) pair of camouflage patterned pants with U.S. flag emblem and shin guards
  • One (1) pair of black boots
  • Two (2) submachine guns
  • One (1) flight backpack with LED light up function (red light, battery operated)
  • One (1) pair of attachable fully spread wings
  • One (1) pair of flight backpack assembly parts
  • One (1) pair of goggles
  • Diamond-shaped dynamic figure stand with Falcon nameplate, the movie logo, and flexible pillar

It’s an incredible figure that is likely not to last, so order yours now from Sideshow Collectibles!

Pre-Order Alert: Hot Toys Winter Soldier Movie Masterpiece Series Figure

Hot Toys Winter Soldier


Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are certainly hoping to build on the hype for next week’s release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier for I cannot recall another time when they released two new Hot Toys figures in two days.  Yesterday’s Captain America Golden Age Movie Promo Edition sold out in under 24 hours (Wait List is Still Available), and now to stage that awesome fight from the movie comes The Winter Soldier Hot Toys one-sixth scale Movie Masterpiece Series figure.

Standing 12-inches tall this figure has 30 points of articulation and an amazing likeness of Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier with two new heads, one masked and one unmasked with movie-accurate make-up.  You also get 4 pairs of interchangable palms (the left ones are gloved), and a ton of weapons including a machine gun, remote bomb launcher, submachine gun, spike with sheath, 2 daggers, and 3 pistols.  Plus a pair of goggles and a figure stand with the Winter Soldier nameplate.

While this figure is certainly not going to sell out as fast as Cap, I have no doubt that with this movie’s expectation it will sell fast, so be sure to get your order in now at Sideshow Collectibles!

Sideshow Collectibles Preorder – Premium Format Captain America Winter Soldier Movie Version


Earlier this week  Sideshow Collectibles teased new Premium Format Figure line tying into Captain America: The Winter Soldier!  They immediately promised Captain America and The Winter Soldier 1/4 scale statues, and already the first–the Captain America Premium Format figure is up for order!

In a bit of an unusual move, Sideshow has no photos of this item available for the pre-order–not even the prototype.  However the description promises “a stunning likeness of award-winning actor Chris Evans” and a “screen-accurate sculpted costume” and finally “switch-out classic and stealth shields.”

Honestly all of those sound really nice, but the question I have is if this is going to be Steve Rogers in the Captain America outfit, or if he’s in the new SHIELD blue outfit.  I think it is the former, as the exclusive edition of this statue comes with a switch-out unmasked head (the regular edition comes only with the masked head).

At $398 this is one of the more expensive Premium Format Figures from Sideshow (not counting the larger figures like Hulk and Apocalypse).  With no photos I am hesitant to order, however perhaps due to the lack of product photography you can now pre-order Cap with no non-refundable deposit.  So there is really no risk if the photos are not to your liking.

If you are already a Cap fan you know you need that exclusive edition, so go and order now!
