Diamond Select toys sent Comicbook.com some new action photos of their newest Marvel Select Figure of The Winter Soldier. The figure is being released and promoted in conjunction with The Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie, but it is based on the look of The Winter Soldier in recent issues of his self-titled comic book.
The photos highlight Captain America's mysterious foe, the Winter Soldier. The figure is being released in brick-and-mortar Disney Stores across North America, (as well as on DisneyStore.com and MarvelStore.com) as an exclusive Marvel Select figure from Diamond Select Toys. The 7-inch figure is sculpted by Jean St. Jean and has 16 points of articulation, and comes with a pistol, machine gun and sniper rifle, as well as a shattered window display base.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on April 4, 2014.
