And the full list of nominees:

Super-Articulate: Marvel Legends Disney+/Captain America Wave

Let’s just dig right in . . .

Vision: With a wave based entirely on the Disney+ wave of the MCU, the figures need to accurately reflect the look of the show. And I think Vision does particularly well in that regard. The face sculpts in this wave are a big level-up, with you can tell. I also like the choice of making the cape semi-transparent; it’s a very cool look and no other Marvel Legends figure has something quite like it.

Scarlet Witch: I love the WandaVision outfit. It’s a terrific design, and the figure really captures it. In fact, it has a few details packed in that I overlooked on screen. It’s really nice work, but the best thing about the entire figure is that face. This IS Elizabeth Olsen; it’s an incredible likeness. Similarly, that hair is beautifully done. This is a figure where intent, design, poseability, and execution all come together so smoothly. Just a top-flight job all around.

Winter Soldier: I thought it was an interesting choice that, considering the Winter Soldier figures all the way back to that two-pack many years ago, Hasbro opted not to include a weapon with this figure. I kind of like that, especially since weapons weren’t really Bucky’s thing in this series. The detail on the vibranium arm might be my favorite part. I found this to be a good update figure for the MCU, but it’s not particularly distinguished outside of costume detailing.

Zemo: Two heads are definitely better. Again, great face sculpt, but there’s just something a little cooler about the masked version. Maybe it’s because we finally got to see it in live-action in the series. At any rate, excellent job on Zemo’s coat, and the shush/pointing hand is a clever inclusion. Speaking of clever, throwing in the Winter Soldier code book was a great touch. Only negative: the coat sculpt makes the figure a little hard to stand.

U.S. Agent: Yes, I’m aware that the big upset is the lack of white stripes. And yet, this still looks good. The figure really captures the look and attitude of John Walker. For me, the main minus is that there was no additional Cap shield, no black and red Agent shield, or no janky homemade shield. But as a figure itself, it’s well-done.

Captain America: What a terrific job they did on Sam. Great likeness, tremendous realization of the suit, and good poseability. The shield and backpack look great, the paint ops are on the point, and they really nailed the look of the goggles. This is my favorite of the group next to Wanda. Of course, he isn’t really complete without . . .

BAF: Cap’s wings and Redwing: I do get where some fans were upset that the BAF was the wing structure. However, I can see why that is with what they were going for. The wings are great, with additional hinges and moving parts.  The addition of a flight stand specifically designed for the figure makes sense, and Redwing is icing. Frankly, I’m pleased that they figured out a way to give us a Sam Cap that looks this great.

Loki: You notice that I keep addressing fandom gripes? Before the show even started to air, discontent mounted over the outfit chosen for Loki. And then . . . it’s exactly what’s he’s been wearing. Seriously, people will demand things as esoteric as Patch Wolverine in a tux, but bitch about TVA Variant Loki? The likeness is there, the costume is show-accurate, and it’s Loki unlike any other we’ve had. Damn it, I like it.

All right, campers. What do you think?

Captain America 4 is in the Works Picking up from Falcon and the Winter Soldier

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Captain America 4 is in the works and will pick up from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. That shows showrunner Malcolm Spellman will developing the film. Spellman co-wrote the script with Dalan Musson, a staff writer on the show.

While there’s not specifics, it’s not hard to figure out where the film might pick up from the show.

SPOILERS

Sam Wilson has now taken on the mantle of Captain America with a new outfit and wielding the shield. John Walker has now taken on the mantle of USAgent, and Sharon Carter has been revealed as the Powerbroker. Bucky is just kind of hanging out with Sam.

The finale hinted at possible plots to shows like Armor Wars as Sharon Carter’s new position will allow her to not just deal in super-soldier serum but also secrets and other high-tech.

END SPOILERS

No director has been announced. And the reaction to The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has been rather mixed. While liked, it has 86% on Rotten Tomatoes from critics and 74% from the audience. That puts it at a similar reaction to Ant-Man and The Wasp.

The film joins a very packed upcoming movie and television universe that includes at least 11 films in the works or out soon and at least 12 television series.
