Marvel Legends Infinite Series Collectors Edition 3-Pack Captain America

Here's the last figure from the Collectors Edition 3-pack, Captain America.

The figure is a repaint of the Ultimate Captain America from the Hit Monkey wave. I like it better. I was never fond of him with the grey pants. He comes with the same belt which is loaded with pouches and equipment. Instead of a jacket he comes with a shoulder harness with pouches on them. If I'm not wrong Hawkeye has the same harness, just differently coloured. Both the belt and harness have nice black shading on them. The paint apps of the figure are good. A minor gripe is the grey areas on his biceps have some paint chipping.

There are stars painted on the shoulder hinges. We could have done without them. Whenever we move his arms the stars will be out of alignment. 

He comes with his shield. It uses the clip and peg hinge system. My shield was defective, the clip broke after putting it on and taking off a couple of times. Hence you will see blu-tac on his wrist in some of  the pics. The colours of this shield are of a lighter tone than the Ultimate Cap's. The paint is rough on the silver areas. 

The shoulder harness and belt are removable. I prefer his look without them. All he needs is a simpler belt. He's a cross between a Classic and Ultimate Cap. He can also pass off as a 6" scale Avengers Assemble Captain America. 

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, forearm swivel, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot.

I forgot to mention he also comes with an interchangeable Steve Rogers head. It's the exact same sculpt as on the Commander Rogers figure. It's a little too big in size for this body. 

Comparison shots.

Nice figure. The 3-pack is a worth it set to pick up. Thanks for viewing!
