Marvel Select Zombie Colonel America

Marvel Select Zombie Colonel America


Tom - September 28, 2007

Package Description
The Living Legend of World War II is now a member of the unliving. One of the first to be contaminated by a mysterious virus from another dimension, Colonel America leads the Marvel Zombies across the globe, seeking out new victims. As the infected heroes take over their world, the Colonel not only has to satiate his inhuman hunger, but contend with a zombie Red Skull as well.

Appearance
Colonel America (hereafter referred to as “Cap” just for simplicity’s sake) is huge. He’s a full head taller than 6” scale figures, and larger proportionally. He’s also noticeably taller than Zombie Spider-man, which is approximately in scale for their heights. However, it does make it noticeably harder to make him fit in visually with regular 6” scale Marvel figures. Even more so than Spidey, Cap needs some more zombies to be displayed with.

The detailing on the costume is good, even including stitch marks on the star on his chest. However, I’d have to say the overall detailing is poor for a zombie. The only damage is to the head, including the gouge marks to the face, and of course the removal of the top half of his skull. Also a little strange is that the brain is left intact despite the removal of the skull, which is not what happened in the comics. I was looking forward to having the top half of his head being completely flat. In addition, the included top part of his head looks too large, and the joint is very noticeable.

The paint job is good on this figure, having a dirty and ragged look like zombie spidey. The paint wash on the legs does not look very natural, but overall it has a nice effect on the figure. Also interesting is the shrunken torso, which helps give cap a zombie like appearance.

Overall, he looks fairly good, but is lacking the detail that made the zombie spidey look so great. He’ll look great once he has a pack of zombies to display with, at which point the details won’t be quite as important.

Articulation
Cap has the same articulation as Zombie Spider-man. He has ball jointed elbows, knees, and head. He has a swivel torso and hands, and pin jointed ankles. Cap also has his shield, but unfortunately the straps are too large, and the fastener does not always fit the wrists. Often times the shield was held in place by a combination of the fastener and straps.

Poseability
Cap has a decent number of good poses in him. As always, the articulation on Marvel Select figures makes it a little more difficult. One major plus of this figure is his left hand can do the shield throw, which no other cap figure has been able to do so far. However, he’s not going to fit in well with a display unless next to other zombies, or fighting other figures. While this figure is fairly good, cap just doesn’t look good by himself.

Final Judgment: 6
Cap has a good amount of detail in the costume, but could have hugely benefited from more damage, and better execution of the breakaway skull. Overall, he’ll look good in a zombie display, but probably isn’t worth getting if you’re not a zombie fan.
