Hot Toys has created nearly 200 stunning collectibles based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the last decade, and now they’re celebrating this partnership with a new line of figures dedicated to Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years. The very first installment is a sixth scale figure of Captain America, based on Marvel Studios’ Head of Visual Development, Ryan Meinderding’s concept art of Captain America from Captain America: Civil War!
Ryan Meinerding was the visual development supervisor and the suit developer in Captain America: The First Avenger and has done the concept design for all of Captain America's suits. Hot Toys has recreated one of these designs with features that include a newly painted head sculpt with interchangeable facial expressions, newly developed body, new battle suit in black with scale pattern and silver Avengers’ logo on the chest, Cap’s iconic circular shield, a black and white heater shield (Yes, TWO shields!), and a specially designed Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years themed figure stand.
Interestingly, the MMS488 Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years 1/6th scale Captain America (Concept Art Version) figure is listed as a 2018 Toy Fair exclusive, but you don’t need to attend the show to get one for your collection, You can pre-order one at Sideshow Collectibles right here for $251 with a ship date slated for sometime between October and December.
