This is the version of Cap that I was waiting to see from Hot Toys, and I am not disappointed.
[SOME POSSIBLE MOVIE SPOILERS AHEAD!]
In case you're not familiar with the comic books, about five years ago there was a [great] storyline where Cap was assassinated and a de-programmed Bucky Barnes (aka The Winter Soldier) took over the mantle of Captain America.
I was going to keep the fact that Bucky and the Winter Soldier were one and the same hush hush for a bit, but a lot of the promotional material from the film give this secret away, so how much of a secret is it really supposed to be?
Anyway, as you might have guessed-- and as always happens in comics-- Captain America returned (he wasn't dead, but rather his consciousness was trapped in time) but he told Bucky to keep the mantle of Captain America as he deserved it, and Steve Rogers then took over as the head of SHEILD. During that time, he wore the uniform that you see here and in the film. This was his SHIELD uniform.
While I truly love the classic Cap uniform, this was a great update and Cap was a bit more stealthy and aggressive during the time that he wore it.
But, Cap is back to being Cap again, and Bucky is now, once again, the Winter Soldier, although he is still free of his Russian brainwashing.
[END POSSIBLE SPOILERS]
And that brings us to this fantastic looking figure here. I was wondering/hoping that he'd come with an unmasked head, but if you're read the post above then you know that Hot Toys isn't going to make it that simple...
Price and release date to be announced.
