The Avengers-Arial Infiltration Mission-Captain America

I just realized that A.I.M. would be the acronym for Arial Infiltration Mission.Anywhootin’anny…i’ve been wanting to add a classic Cap to the old collection for a while now but they were always too expensive online and they barely showed up on the pegs round these parts.Marshalls use to have the Captain America movie comic versions with the jet-pack thingamajigger on clearance for as low as 5 bucks, but i always passed on that one.Son of a popper!So the other day i decided to check  the clearance aisle at Marshalls..again…and came across this guy right here.Avengers blah blah blah blah Mission Captain America!And he had the red boots!-CHECK.And he had the red gloves!-CHECK.And even though the rest of the figure was based on the movie version,   he had the three classic red stripes going across his lower abdomen  just like the original Cap!(or so i thought)-CHECK.And it was only 4 bucks!-CHECK.So i bought that muthapiece!Brought it home,opened it up and took off the  parachute web gear to get a better look at those awesome red stripes that obviously paid homage to  the classic….AAAAAARGH!WTF!Little dark blue stripes in between the red ones!AAWW crap i’d been played   😦  It turns out the dark blue stripes are really part of his suspenders,but man why not just paint those suckers white to keep ish real!It looked rather odd to say the least,but the rest of the figure sort of grew on me after posing and messing around with it a bit.I like the lighter shade of blue compared to the darker shade that was used for the first movie version release.The red gloves and boots are also a nice touch and the parachute web gear + parachute helped raise the morale.For 4 bucks i can’t complain.I even thought about getting some white out to paint over the suspender straps,but i hate messing around with the integrity of an action figure.Oh well.Hopefully the Cap i have on the way will better the situation.

    • Thanks jb!With all the rumors about MU putting the kibosh on the more articulated line of figures,the new Cap’s might be a little restricted in the way of poseability.I did see somewhere that in this last wave of MU figures there’ll be a classic Cap and from the looks of it,might be worth tracking one down.
