Love the shield but disappointed that there is no alternate head

How about an alternate unmasked head?!

Damn great figure! Must get!!

That's good news for all 1/6 collectors.

The shield look kinda small, 1-2cm bigger would be fantastic. Must be the retro comic effect - I recall Captain America charging towards his enemies using his shield to block bullets

An alternative head would be great

This one would be awesome with an unmasked head or if the helmet came off. Shame not to see Chris Evan's face.

A must have...a comic hero and a military ...all in one. What's more to ask for?

hey guys and gal, I think Hot Toys is following the specs given by Marvel where Cap has his mask on every time he's in uniform /costume. Perhaps if it was a DX, then the alternate unmasked head would come with the G.I. uniform. But this is good enough for me :)

Nice figure, Its going to break my budget but I will be getting this figure.

Sadly, from the look of the shield. I don't think it's possible to pose Captain America in one of his iconic pose where by his shield is on the ground and Captain America's rest both of his palm is on top on the shield.

Maybe its just me, I don't mind the retro outfit but the shield should be large enough to touch his hand when Captain America is standing upright.

I do believe the size of the shield is not comic accurate, but should be movie accurate...

Had already pre ordered mine. Can't wait for this.
