Hot Toys 1st Avenger Captain America rides 1:6 WLA 45 Harley Davidson Military Motorcycle

continued from previous post...

Having posted pictures of 1:6 scale Captain Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) in his WWII U.S. Army military uniform (with the fictional insignia made just for the movies) in my earlier action figure review of the POP TOYS Style Series X19 1/6th scale WWII Captain military uniform suit A on my toy blog HERE, here's a post of Captain Steve Rogers in his other WWII uniform, that of the star spangled red-white-and-blue outfit of Captain America, the superhero created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby for Timely Comics, a predecessor of Marvel Comics.

This is the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS156 1/6th scale Captain America: The First Avenger 12-inch Collectible Figure (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE). This was the first Captain America figure ever released by Hot Toys and it was back in 2011. Many Captain Americas have since been produced and released, with the most recent being Cap from the 2015 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" film (posted HERE, HERE and HERE).

It's nice to see how the Captain America costume has evolved in the films and it's even nicer to be able to own some of these costumes in 1:6 scale, especially when Hot Toys has paid so much attention to the details so that fabrics and materials used stay closely to the film version and be as movie-accurate as possible. That is what I really appreciate about this 1:6 scale hobby where the uniforms / outfits / costumes are produced and replicated in such fine detail that even the fabric and materials used can be as close to the actual 1:1 product as much as possible. You just can't get that with the smaller sized plastic moulded action figures. Hot Toys 12-inch First Avenger Captain America (WWII Captain America) collectible figure didn't come with the 1:6 scale WWII U.S. Army motorcycle he is seen riding in the film. So I decided to put Cap on a Hasbro produced G.I. Joe U.S. Army WLA 45 Harley Davidson Military Motorcycle released in 1998.

It's too bad Hasbro has stopped producing 1/6th scale G.I. Joe vehicles. They had nice details and were most affordable - check out more pictures of this Hasbro G.I. Joe U.S. Army WLA 45 Harley Davidson Military Motorcycle posted HERE. Hasbro also released a 1:6 scale Metropolitan Police Harley Electra-Glide motorcycle (pictures HERE) as well as the WWII Willys Jeep (reviewed on my toy blog HERE and HERE).

Unfortunately, Hot Toys 1:6 scale Captain America's shield suffers from the flaking paint issue :( but we'll just call it "battle-damaged"
