REVIEW: Hot Toys’ The Winter Soldier

Hot-Toys-Winter-Soldier-19

I’m of the persuasion that the superior Marvel Studios produced films are those distributed by Disney. Part of it is that more of the characters I like are in those films. There are also less reboots. And I feel they do a much better job holding their segment of the Marvel Universe together cohesively.

It just so happened that my two favorite films from the Marvel Universe were both released in 2014 – Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There were some stark contrasts between the two. Guardians had a good number of laughs in it…while The Winter Soldier felt like their first real traditional all-out “action film”.

Hot-Toys-Winter-Soldier-17

Like all of the Marvel superhero films, we’ve seen a large number of licensed toy products. One of those companies that consistently gives collectors high-quality 1/6th scale toys is Hot Toys. And Hot Toys released six toys based on the Captain America: The Winter Soldier. One of those, which we’re reviewing here thanks to Sideshow Collectibles, is the 1/6th scale Winter Soldier.

In the film, the Winter Soldier – formerly known as Bucky Barnes – was portrayed by actor Sebastian Stan. Now, Stan isn’t a household name with truly recognizable face, but it looks like Hot Toys has nailed the likeness. Actually, a pair of portraits are included here: one without a mask and with black around the eyes; one with the lower face mask and removable goggles.
