View Full Version : Captain America

This is surely a far cry from Derek's as his was possibly the best cap figure ever to exist. I still need to come up with/order flared gloves cause this oven mit isn't cutting it and fashion a belt buckle, but here he is. It's a Reprohead suit so I can't take any credit for that. Actually, I can't take much credit here at all except the head. Okay, now I'm depressed :ugh_y:

Hey, but the head paints are really nice. Belt buckle suggestion: at Joann's in the button area the sell doll buckles that work for Mego and 9 inch stuff. You can make the belt out of a strip of pleather or craft foam.

Depressed? Why? That Cap looks awesome - awesome enough that I'm surprised Mego didn't go this route back in the day! Well done!
I got red flared gloves from Classic Plastick via eBay - all I can say is WOW! Those gloves were like night and day when it came to my custom Cap (just changed out the suit for a Brian Leitner custom, added red swashbuckler boots). Think they ran about $10 - very worth it.

That is a great Mego-esque Cap Scott! And I've always liked that head for Cap too...nice paint job.

You should pick up one of those shields from some of the Marvel Legends Captain America figures. That one looks a little on the big size but other then that, this figure is probably one of the best ones of Captain America I have seen in awhile.

Demon's right...I used the Marvel Legends one as well, and it's the PERFECT size.:wink_y:

To each his own I guess...I prefer the FC shield over the Marvel Legends. The Marvel Legends was a bit too small IMO.
One of the things I discovered doing research for my Cap...is that every artist took some liberty as to the size of the shield. Some were bigger...some were smaller.
So really - it depends upon what you like. I like a larger shield, so I went with the FC shield. If you like a smaller shield, go with the Marvel Legends shield..
Really,if you want the "Mego" look - you need to go with a Doc Mego reproduction shield.

Ah...but Derek...You also went with a larger Captain America.:wink: Your Cap is "bulk-up" BIG TIME! So the larger Shield looks right with Him.:yeah:
