Bucky-Cap from the Cap movie line is better, in my not so humble opinion. I have both, the other Bucky from the Marvel line is based on the original everyone mold and has all the associated bow legged problems. New Bucky is more beefy and has the new legs and thigh swivel and looks to be molded for himself.
True....in part. While the sculpt and shiny paint-job are sweet, the clear plastic mold from the blister pack bends the left knee awkwardly inward resulting in a really loose left knee hinge...I returned one and my replacement has the same problem....seems like it'll fall off in no time......but I'm returning this one, too (see below)!
Oh yeah I picked up him and USAgent the other day> Only down side is Bucky came with that completely stupid Shield-with-spike-blades-that-pop-out!!!
I know, it's terrible, right? ....then my almost 7 y/o was playing with them, and thought the razor shield was totally badass! ....I guess the toy consumer research they do has some merit...what do I know?
Today at Target I saw some nice exclusive Cap figure packs:
Battle-Pack Winter Soldier and Captain America (with comic)
Battle Pack Bucky Cap and Crossbones (with comic)
Fire & Ice 2-pack: Red Skull with Cosmic Cube and Arctic Cap (looks so goofy!)
Sooo...I'm returning the faulty-knee movie Bucky/Cap and I picked up the Bucky Cap/Crossbones 2 pack. The Bucky Cap is the same new mold but a bit lighter, matte paint versus the shiny (as the movie Bucky Cap did). As goofy as Arctic Cap looked, and as unimpressive as the Red Skull looks (too feminine), I picked that 2 pack up too.....'cause it had a cosmic cube, cracklin' with energy!
