Fans who have been receiving the 3 figured from Diamond's Marvel Select Civil War range have been complaining that the interconnecting Diorama base was incomplete after assembling the three parts released with the Civil War figures of Cap, Iron-Man and The Winter Soldier. Although Diamond have said you could buy a 2nd Winter Soldier and reverse the back - there has been a longer term plan in the works.
And here it is, and as expected it is confirmation that Captain America will be getting a Marvel Store / Disney Store exclusive release with an unmasked head. The figure is identical to the standard release, with the addition of the unmasked Chris Evans head that was used on the Stealth Suit Captain America from Winter Soldier.
This figure is due for release in November, and pre-orders for US customers are up on Marvel.com. As yet there is no UK pre-order, but we would expect Disney Store UK to have these soon in line with previous exclusive releases.
What is worrying when you read some of the social media discussions around this figure is the confirmation from Diamond that all their Civil War figure stocks have been exhausted at their end. That means that unless the stocks are on route, there could be a lot of disappointed UK customers as the UK have had no stocks to date that I am aware of, and all UK directly supplied pre-orders have not been fulfilled.
In Captain America: Civil War, the Sentinel of Liberty is pitted against Tony Stark’s Iron Man in a super hero battle for the ages! Salute the popular film adventure with our 7'' action figure from Diamond Select Toys.
Backordered: We expect this item to be available by 11/07/2016. You will be notified via email when it is ready to ship.
