Captain America 3.75" Red Skull

Captain America's arch-enemy, the Red Skull.

This is the movie version. He looks pretty good. Nice head sculpt but I can't help but feel something is off. He reminds me of a Star Trek Ferengi for some reason. His uniform is a modified look of the German uniform. Like the black outlines. Add a Hydra logo on his belt buckle and it would be great.

Accessories include a pistol and a firing rocket launcher.  

And also the cosmic cube with energy emanating from it. Its pretty cool but it looks more like a fireball or magic spell.  

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball and hinge shoulders, swivel and hinge elbows, wrist swivel, waist rotation, ball and hinge hips, thigh swivel and double jointed knees. The lower part of his uniform restricts his leg articulation. He won't be able to run or sit. 

Comparison with the Marvel Universe version. Prefer the MU Red Skull, he looks more sinister.

He's a bit short...

... let's see if we can find him a new body. I always wanted a figure of him in a suit. So tried a head swap with the GIJoe SDCC James McCullen figure. The head is loose fitting. And don't think the stripes suit him. Maybe the regular release ROC Destro would look better.

This is a nice figure. Hope we get one in his black uniform from the trailer.

Thanks ! Red Skull's head is very loose on the Joe's body. It'll be sitting on the collar. Its supported with blu-tack in the pic.
