Avengers Infinite Series Wave 1 Captain America

Today my theatre received our copy of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  The film was labeled "Freezer Burn", which is hilarious.

Anyone, here's the newest Captain America in 1/18 scale.

This figure is in the Avengers Infinite line, but if it looks familiar, that's because it is.  It's the same as the last Captain America figure released in the Marvel Universe toy line, but I never got one of those, so I'm happy with this one.

Marvel Universe Greatest Battles Captain America

Here is the Captain America figure from the Greatest Battles Two Pack packaged with Wolverine.

My only real preference on the previous figure was the straps on the shield.  They helped keep the shield on, and I could attach it to his back easily.

Marvel Universe Blastaar

The sculpt is the newer Marvel Universe (or Infinite now) sculpt.  It works well.

Avengers Infinite Hulk
Avengers Infinite Iron Man

DC Multiverse Arkham City Armored Edition Batman

Pretty great figure overall, but if you have a Captain America already, you probably don't need this one.

Marvel Universe Wave 23 Abomination

Continuing with Hulk theme, here's my favorite Hulk villain, the Abomination!

This is another spectacular figure, the last few waves of this line are pretty much solid gold.

Marvel Universe Hulk

Abomination is pretty much as strong as Hulk, maybe stronger, but with military training,

Tim Roth plays Emil Blonsky, who becomes the Abomination in the Incredible Hulk film.  The above figure is based on his character.

Marvel Universe Rhino

Abomination is the same sculpt as Rhino, it works well.

Iron Man 2 Series Hulkbuster

Avengers Infinite Iron Man

Marvel Universe World War Hulk

Marvel Universe Wave 22 Rhino Figure

I'm going to be skipping around a lot over the next few weeks.  I essentially got three waves of Marvel Universe and the first wave of Marvel Infinite figures at once.

While not exactly a Hulk villain, Rhino has had some Hulk encounters.  I decided to include him in Hulk week.

Marvel Universe Hulk Figure

Rhino is an awesome figure!  I actually thought the previous Rhino figure was good, but this is great!

Marvel Universe Wave 21 Blastaar

Today I broke into Wave 21!

I've got some cool plans for pictures involving Jubilee and Professor X, so I started with Blastaar.

Marvel Universe Fantastic Four Team Pack Thing

Marvel Universe Fantastic Four Team Pack Mr. Fantastic

I don't know a whole lot about this guy.  He was the king of the Negative Zone at one point, might still be.

Marvel Universe Modern Age Avengers Team Pack Thor

I happened to get the translucent variant.  His hands are solid grey otherwise.
