Captain America: Civil War has won the battle of the superhero films.

It beat Batman V Superman in both the critics ratings and at the box office and now X-Men: Apocalypse shows signs of struggling with both too.

At this present time, Captain America is easily one of Marvel's most popular characters and that's partly due to the charisma Chris Evans gives to the character. He's hard not to like.

And the same is true with the third figure in Eaglemoss' Marvel Movie Collection which just so happens to be Captain America.

Steve Rogers is the third 1/16th scale figure in a series of figurines based on various MCU characters that promises 60 issues.

Introducing Captain America

After a poor start with missing fingers and wonky faces, Captain America looks to put right many of the wrongs of the first figurine. On the figure we purchased, Steve Rogers nose looks a little pointy and his shield has a small hole in the rear corner, but the model itself is a fairly accurate portrayal of his character.

And with more paint detail than Black Widow, Steve Rogers' has all the right paint in all the right places. It is a bit shaky in places, but it's got a lot better as the collection has progressed.

Close up

And that pretty much sums up the Eaglemoss collection - these are Marvel figurines on a budget. This collection is a way to get a large set of Marvel characters for relatively cheap. The figurines feel weighty and premium to hold and when displayed in a larger collection it'll be harder to see the individual faults.

There are better scale figurines out there but they are ten or twenty times the cost. The nearest figures at this price range with this much detail would be the Disney Infinity series of plastic toys which offer a rather cool cartoony look.

Cap's shield has seen a few battles

If you want Marvel figurines on the cheap, it's hard to go wrong with this collection. Probably the more serious question is do you have room for 60+ Marvel movie figurines?

See what figures are coming next!
