Hot Toys "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" 1/6th Collectible Figure: Sebastian Stan as Bucky

continued from previous post...

This is the part 2 review of Hot Toys MMS241 Captain America: The Winter Soldier 1/6th scale Sebastian Stan as Bucky / Winter Soldier 12-inch Collectible Figure. Having reviewed the box packaging and contents in my part 1 review (posted HERE) with detailed pictures of the 1/6 scale weapons and accessories as well as unmasked head sculpt turnaround views, this second toy blog post and review covers the masked head sculpt with goggles, and putting the 1/6 scale weapons in the hands of this 12-inch assassin of HYDRA.

In the 2014 American superhero film "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", Steve Rogers' best friend, Bucky Barnes, has re-emerged as an enhanced brainwashed assassin called The Winter Soldier after being thought killed in action during World War II. Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America must battle to the death with his old buddy and pal Bucky (Sebastian Stan) who is now an agent of Hydra. Cap also must prevent Hydra from killing millions of innocent people via the launch of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s helicarriers.

First thing Steve Rogers tells Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) after his encounter with the Winter Soldier: “He's fast... strong... and has a metal arm.” Cap more than meets his match when it comes to the Winter Soldier, partly because he too is a super soldier and partly because when Rogers realizes that Bucky is the Winter Soldier, he cannot bear to put his best friend down permanently, even though Bucky has no idea who Rogers is due to all the brain washing.

When the Winter Soldier first appears in the film, it is in the scene where he takes down a fleeing Nick Fury who is being pursued by Hydra agents masquerading as police officers and S.W.A.T. operatives. The Winter Soldier's face is all covered up with mask and goggles in order not to be recognized and incapacitates Fury's souped up SUV by firing a magnetic disk charge from his remote bomb launcher, which is a modified FN Mk13 grenade launcher. The 12-inch Winter Soldier in his full all-black costume along with his weapons are all accurately reproduced in 1/6th scale by Hot Toys in this realization of the movie-based collectible figure.

The Winter Soldier carries a number of varied weapons on him and Hot Toys has faithfully produced every single one of them in 1/6th miniature scale with all the nice details. You can see all the weapons laid out neatly in my post HERE. The 1/6 scale weapons included with this Hot Toys 12-inch Winter Soldier collectible figure are: Colt M4A1 assault rifle fitted with M203A1 grenade launcher, Intratec TEC-38 Over Under Pistol (two tone nickel plated version), SIG-Sauer P226R pistol, FN Mk13 grenade launcher - aka remote bomb launcher (modified to fire magnetic disc-shaped explosive charge), CZ Vz. 61 E Skorpion submachine gun, COP 357 Derringer - .357 Magnum, two combat knives / daggers, one spike.

Here are close-up pictures of the Hot Toys Winter Soldier with mask head sculpt wearing the goggles to hide his identity. See the previous post HERE for the unmasked head sculpt of the Winter Soldier

The 1/6 scale Winter Soldier's goggles are removed and put on via first removing the hair sculpture which is connected to the head by magnets

A closer look at the 1/6 scale Remote Bomb Launcher (modified FN Mk13 grenade launcher)

The Winter Soldier's costume / outfit consists of: black leather-like top with embossed pattern, black pants with customized holsters for his weapons, black belt with pouches, black chest holster for his SMG which is mounted on his back, and a pair of black boots. In these pictures, he's armed with the SIG-Sauer P226R pistol in his left hand and combat knife in his right hand. The 1/6 scale knife fits nicely in the knife grasping hand which is included.

CZ Vz. 61 E Skorpion submachine gun carried on the back of his armored vest and one of the two combat knives still sheathed on his lower back.

Hot Toys has produced a very nice and detailed movie figure of the Winter Soldier and everything on this figure is top notch in terms of quality and accuracy. Looks great, feels great!
