There was a Marvel Legends version of the Brian Braddock Captain Britain some years back. Is that the one you're talking about?
No, it's a four inch version. It was in the Captain America 1st movie line, which was odd because Captain Britain has never been in the movies (only briefly in animation).

And thanks for another great segment tonight! Poor Luke!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I like the effect of Thor's hammer sticking to Luke's glove. I see a peek of something blue between them - the small piece of adhesive he used to achieve the effect? Pretty sweet!

Damn, I thought I had hidden that. Didn't notice the little bit peeking through. Kinda ruins the floating hammer effect. Oh well, these have been really rough since the start. Yeah, it's a little bit of sticky-tack. Wonderful stuff.

Marvel Select Deadpool is an awesome figure. Congrats on the new arrival.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Holy crap. I ordered my little Captain Britain figure yesterday afternoon, and he got here this morning! Clint is not pleased to see his former Secret Avengers colleague...

"Braddock." "Barton." (Brrrrrrrrr!)


Captain America is happy to see him, though.

"Brian! Glad you're here. How's the lovely wife? And is Wisdom still a pain in the butt- er- bum?" "Oh, Meggan's fine, keeping busy with our students...and yes, Pete is still a tosser. He quit smoking, at least..."



"Barton, Romanoff, the good captain has agreed to work with the Avengers again. And this time, I'm leaving HIM in charge!" (Clint groans.) Braddock: "Don't make me hit you with Excalibur, Hawkeye!"



I SO wish there was a Pete Wisdom figure! Meggan would be nice, too.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Toy Wiz finally sent me a shipping notification- my Funko Black Widow will arrive soon! I think I'll cancel my pre-order of Couslon and just get him from amazon. Toy Wiz is always a month behind for some reason...

Still no luck finding the Winter Soldier Tasha.

Clint and Tasha have a brand new playmate for their plastic escapades? This could be glorious.

I've already completed another set, which I'll post tomorrow. Clint plays a mean prank on Captain Britain.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I should go ahead and order the Black Knight figure so Captain Britain can have his BFF around (even if Knight is American- it's still a reminder of "home"!).

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Anybody here got any firsthand experience and opinions about the characters in the new Captain America: The Winter Soldier figure line?

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

^I can't even find them in the stores!

As promised, more adventures. Clint thought it would be funny to welcome Captain Britain with a reminder of home. Tasha is embarrassed, and Brian has to run for his life!

"AHHHHHHHHHHH!" "EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!"



But he has an old friend on his side:



Steve has a peace offering. "Sorry about Barton, he can be a jerk. Tea?"



Clint would rather have a beer, but at least he's being friendly now. Avengers tea party!



I have more ideas for Captain Britain adjusting to his new home planned!
