I'm not really into this set. I don't need the hydra figures.
One of the reasons I like this two pack is that we get a heavy hitter variant outside of a standard wave. I personally don't mind heavy hitters occasionally showing up in waves but if we can get a few this way (or as a retailer exclusive) it opens up slots for characters needing their first release or a revamped release in Legends.
That said, I really like this alternateversion of Cap & the Zola looks better than the original BAF version IMO. Like FigurePatrol mentioned, an additional head with the open mouth look or an evil/grimacing SteveRogers head would've been awesome.
For the longest time, I wanted a Legends version of Hydra cap. After reading Secret Empire and finding out that he is in fact an alternate version of Cap, I quickly gave up on it and no longer had a desire to pick up this version of Cap.
I loved this story arc and I am glad we are getting this figure. I would have preferred to have the open face look of that helmet but I'm not too miffed about it. I'm glad they added some new pieces to Zola as well. It's also gonna look great with anyone who built a Hydra army.
Although I am getting this set, it does frustrate me a bit that Hasbro chooses to release a fig (this version of Cap) with such an ephemeral presence in the Marvel Universe while continuing to overlook characters with multiple appearances over many decades (such as The Warriors Three, The Wizard, most of the OG Inhumans, etc.).
Thanks for the review erivera94, not a big fan of hydra or zola so probably wont be collecting these figs. That version of the one:12 Cap always reminds me of the Nazi Master man from the old Invaders comics from ww2. He was a Nazi version of Cap like red skull, but without the ugly side affects. But never the less he was evil.
