I just got in a bunch of Cap America suits for the new Round2 CA line. And.... since there were some wonderings about how these costumes would look on bodies other than the new CA, I did some dressups and some pics. Here you go.
Looking at the examples I received - the wall eye Steve is a bit of hit and miss. Happy to report that not all of them are odd looking, unhappy to say that some are.
I was going to try out 3 different bodies. A dragon, an early 2k BBI, and the PM cappy body. I did the dragon first and it is taller than the CA bodies, Ideal, PM, and Round2. So, since the BBI is both taller and wider than the CA and the Dragon, I decided to skip it as the Dragon was stretching the suit pretty far.
Here are some shots of the costume on a Dragon body with the hands removed and the gloves held up by friction.
A comparison with the original Ideal Captain America outfit.
And then some shots of the outfit on a PM Cappy body.
I think you can use the outfit on just about any body you like if you are willing to stretch it some and if the headsculpt is small enough to hold the mask. I think the biggest problem with the masks is the ears. Original Ideal cappy masks don't have ears. These from Round2 do, and when the masks are on heads (which also have ears) they tend to stick out really far and push the jawline out pretty far. This, in turn, makes the head look out of proportion with the body.
I am also not a big fan of the new style material and cut for the outfits. I am an old school CA fan, and I like the barrel chest cut for the suits. However, I will say they hold up well to stretching over taller bodies, and the screen print is pretty clean.
I definitely liked the look of the outfit better on the Cap Action body, rather than the Dragon. The CA looked a bit more proportionate, while the Dragon made the outfit look kind of gangly. However, it is good to know that you can display these sets on armatures that are not the 30 or 40 dollar Captain Action from Round 2. Not that I don't think you should spend the money with the company making these. Just that 30-40 is a lot of change to drop for a manikin for your new outfit.
Hope you enjoy the pics. These are awesome toysets. I will be picking them all up. I tend to buy in bulk, tho, so my extras may make some appearances on the marketplace. Have a GOOD time. - rche
