Marvel Select Winter Soldier, Disney Store Exclusive Variant

We shared the news earlier this week of a brand new Marvel Select Sam Wilson Captain America figure hitting Disney Stores as an Exclusive. It seems there is a companion figure of the Winter Soldier, but sadly it is not as impressive as it sounds.

Diamond and Disney have taken the existing comic-book Winter Soldier figure and repainted the top of the figure a blue colour to resemble the outfit Bucky wears in the Disney+ show. The figure is being marketed as "inspired" by Falcon & The Winter Soldier. We've seen similar approaches in the past with Guardians of the Galaxy, Venom and the Avengers movie. What is slightly strange in this example is that Diamond do have an MCU Bucky Barnes head sculpt which might have worked on this comic-book body?

The release is packed in the Select oversize blister and includes all the same original accessories including the broken window diorama scene, sniper rifle, pistol, machine gun and Hydra crate.

The figure is in store now alongside the new Captain America. It is also up for order on the Disney Store UK site and the same for Shop Disney US.

This Special Collector's Edition Action Figure of the Winter Soldier features 16 points of articulation and finely detailed paint and sculpting. The pistol, machine gun, sniper rifle, and Hydra crate accessories allow you to recreate exciting moments from the comics.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
