Marvel Legends Series 3.75" TRU Exclusive Captain America & Iron Man

The other Marvel Legends 3.75" Toys 'R' Us exclusive two-pack. Featuring Captain America and Iron Man.  

The main draw of this two-pack would have to be the Marvel NOW! Iron Man. Or that is what I presume this figure to be of due to the black and gold colours. The figure is a repaint of the Avengers Assemble Iron Man and it is not accurate to the design of the Marvel NOW! suit. Still it's a pretty cool figure. The sculpt of this is nice and I like that its got some bulk to it. One of the downsides is that the head is always looking down but this can be compensated by adjusting his body at the torso joint. The paint apps are poor. There's gold slop in several places and also bleeding. The gold is also of a little too dark a tone. They did the eyes and the arc reactor well though. 

Captain America is probably a repaint but I'm not sure of which figure. I'm guessing it's from an Ultimate version due to the gear he's wearing. The head sculpt is nice. He has a serious expression on his face. There are no "wings" on the sides of his headgear. The A was well painted on. There's great detail on his costume. The "scales" were sculpted and you can see the seams and wrinkles. The vest and best are separate pieces. Again there's great detail. The vest is textured and a has several pockets on it. I like that they painted the belt buckle and buttons. I wish they added some paint for the knife and canteen. 

He comes with his shield which he can equip by clipping it on his wrist. The shield is the same one which we've seen before with various Marvel 3.75" Captain America figures.

Articulation. Cap has got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, elbow hinge, wrist swivel, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel and knee hinge. He cannot look up or down. The elbows bend less than 90 degrees.

Iron Man has got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, ball joint torso, bar hips with hinge, thigh swivel and swivel hinge knees. He cannot look up or down. He cannot bend forwards much but he can bend back a fair bit. 

Comparison shots. Hasbro previously released a Marvel NOW! Iron Man in the All Star line if you're looking for something a little more accurate. That one has only five points of articulation though.

Both figures are okay. I like Iron Man more than Cap. Thanks for viewing!

Thanks for the review. I appreciate your reviews because theyre always very detailed and early . I dont think anyone has done a written review for this two pack or the black panther one (there was a video review). The actress who plays agent 13 emily van camp even used one of your pictures to promote her action figure. Keep it up and great job

Can the head of the 5 POA Iron Man fit onto this Iron Man?
