    hey how can they do a nice star on the super soldier and still have that crappy star application on the 40s one .another missed opportunity fix.

    Yeah, a removable cowl for the 1940's version would have been great, and yeah, the star again hanging on by a thread (literally) is lame.

    One other thing - the Steve Rogers Super-Soldier costume is really tight, likely due to the "leather" shoulder straps. Maybe you can see the star is kinda stretched out; it's stretched pretty bad in the back, too. I tried it on an S-Type body and then a Zica body, before finally trying it on an FTC body. The FTC body worked best, or least-worst, anyway.

    It seems really strange that they made a new set and didn't fix the star. Cap's head looks like they just repainted the classic one .

    Easy pass. The single stitched dangle star, tight outfit, just reaffirms my avoidance of characters that have already been produced.
    The shields are neat and the headsculpts are good, just not enough there for the price.

    Haven't got my set yet, but I'm in Canada so it could take awhile, but I guess I can't complain about free Canadian shipping!

    Just some thoughts:

    I agree the single stitch star is kinda lame, but based on my experiences with the original set a wee bit of fabric glue (cheap at Walmart) fixes this issue easily.

    I also agree a removable cowl might have been a cool idea, but after the issues with Wolverine I doubt DST will ever go down that road again.

    I don't want to start any sort of debate here because again if not for the free shipping I dunno if I'd have bought this set. But based on the posted photos I have no regrets.

    The free shipping is surprisingly fast to Canada, I got mine yesterday.

    I'm going to wait on this.....I bet they can't sell 2000 of them and they will get reduced.
