Marvel Legends Captain America & Peggy Carter The First Avenger review

Hello, fellow Marvel Legends collectors!

In this review I am going to be reviewing the Captain America and Peggy Carter two pack that was inspired by the Captain America The First Avenger movie from back in 2011.

As while the first Captain America movie is one of my all time favourite Marvel Cinematic Universe movies some fans prefer the Winter Soldier or Civil War movies more.

Likeness to Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell

One of the important factors in making Marvel Cinematic Universe characters into Marvel Legends is the likeness to the person portraying them.

Thankfully Hasbro nailed the likeness to Hayley Atwell as you can definitely see the resemblance to her in the Marvel Legend.

Chris Evans likeness on the other hand I’d say is just alright as the two alternate heads don’t quite capture his young likeness but still it could be worse.

Accessories these Marvel Legends include

Captain America comes with the prototype shield which Howard Stark first showed him and his WWII shield seen on his first mission.

Pistol and knife are included with Captain America and both have storage areas to put them in.

A machine gun is included for either him or Peggy Carter so the choice is yours on what Marvel Legend you give it to.

Two alternate heads and a helmet are included for Captain America so putting the helmet on either head can be done.

While the two heads do look slightly similar to each other how the hair is sculpted on them both is different.

My opinion about these getting released as a two pack

I think releasing Peggy Carter in a two pack with Captain America was always the best option as releasing her in a Marvel Legends build-a-figure wave may have being tricky.

The WWII Captain America in this outfit was the best one to release as it was the only version of Captain America from that movie left to be released.

So I think Hasbro made the right decision to release them as a two pack especially since they are releasing quite a few Marvel Cinematic Universe two packs this year.

Finals thoughts and would I recommend you purchase this

So final thoughts are I am really happy to finally have a Peggy Carter in my Marvel Legends collection as I didn’t think we were ever going to get one.

Despite there being a lot of Captain Americas getting released these last few years getting this WWII version was the best one to make.

If you are a fan of the sadly cancelled Agent Carter series and a fan of MCU movies this two pack is a must get for you collection just for the Peggy Carter alone.

As for comic book Legend collectors this two pack isn’t for you as this isn’t inspired by the comic books.
