I am REALLY hoping that Bucky is as cool in the upcoming movie as he has recently be perceived to be. A few weeks back I saw the WW2 version of Bucky, and knew I needed to get him to go with Cap. The real reason though is the two Tommy Guns that he comes with. That makes him look really tough.
He has a fun outfit. Not sure that the tights would work with the guys in World War 2, but you never know. Hasbro has done a really good job with the articulation of their Universe figures. I was not happy when there was a move away from the Marvel Legends line, and frankly it went to garbage when Hasbro took over. I think I only have maybe one of the Legends figures that Hasbro created. Not that you could ever find them in the store anyway.
I have a pretty small collection of the Universe figures, but every one I have, I am happy with. Hasbro has come up with a quality product… but they still stink at making women in the 3 3/4 scale. I wish they would take a page from the anime/manga toy manufactures and work on that a little more. I suspect that they don’t care a whole lot about the ladies since they are not the big sellers for kids.
