Thanks to a premature action figure listing on Chinese online store Taoboa (and the fine folks at Marvelous News for spotting it), we have our first look at Sam Wilson from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in his Captain America costume.
Most folks have been expecting to see this since Cap gave Sam the shield in Avengers: Endgame, (and a Titan Series toy release spoiled it) but this is still technically a spoiler, so be warned before checking things out.
SERIOUSLY, THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO TURN BACK
First off, FINALLY. Marvel toy collectors have been waiting for this figure forever. The closest we’ve gotten came as part of a couple five year old sets: A 2016 Marvel Legends (6″scale) 3-pack and a 2016 Marvel Universe (3.75″ scale) 2-pack…neither of which had wings!
This beautiful 7″ scale Marvel Select version fixes that problem. It also comes with alternate hands, a shield (of course), and Redwing.
My Google translate interpretation might be off, but it looks like this will be a Disney Store exclusive. Part of me thinks it’s worth waiting for the Marvel Legends release, but I have a terrible feeling they’re going to try and make Sam’s wings the Build-A-Figure as they did for the MCU Vulture.
Combine that with how good this version looks, and it might be my first ever MCU preorder from the Marvel Select line. No official release date could be found on Taoboa, but we should get one soon.
