I already own one Winter Solider figure but that’s not going to stop me from picking up this one. I need to own them all. And if you missed out on the first one I feel bad for you. It’s an outstanding figure with all kinds of little accessories and it just looks bad ass and now I’m rambling. The new figure doesn’t come with as much but that’s not a surprise to me. While the character name is the same, it’s not the same character if that makes sense. He’s not loaded up with HYDRA gear anymore which means less toys to play with. I still think it’s a pretty kick ass item to add to your collection though. The head sculpt is a little different from the first which is nice to see. Sometimes Hot Toys has a habit of just reusing them over and over again (See: Black Widow).
The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier in the movie. It features a newly sculpted head sculpt, new chrome colored left arm with red star emblem, finely tailored costume, a machine gun, and a specially designed Captain America: Civil War themed figure stand.
I’m really excited to see the new arm. I think it’s probably the one issue most people had with the first one. The arm just didn’t stand out the way it should. Now, while I love this figure and the look of it, I really hope they give us a Red Shirt/Civilian Bucky Barnes. I just love the way he looks in it and honestly, I have a feeling he’ll be wearing that more than his Winter Soldier outfit. If you want the Winter Soldier to grace your shelf, it’ll cost $219.99 with a NRD of $22.00.
