Shouldnā€™t he be like... Captain Japan? Naming conventions aside, the latest in Bandaiā€™s line of Feudal Japanese takes on Western heroes might just be its best figure yet.


Revealed at Tamashii Nations 2016, the Movie Realization Captain America joins Spider-Man and Iron Man as a Samurai-ified take on Marvelā€™s sentinel of liberty. Unlike Spidey and Iron Man, Captain America doesnā€™t wear a full mask, but even then Bandai did a pretty awesome job of re-imagining the characterā€™s head as a full on Samurai helmetā€”a fearsome painted faceguard, complete with an ornamental ā€˜Aā€™ on the helmet. And look at those wings! The best Captain America costumes are the ones that keep the wings intact (sorry, MCU Cap), but this just takes it to another level.

Thereā€™s tons of awesome little details on this figureā€”whether itā€™s the armor replicating Capā€™s traditional chainmail look, or the wonderfully intricate take on his shield. Samurai Cap might look a little plainer than Spidey and Iron Man, but itā€™s a simplicity that really works.


Thereā€™s no detail yet on when you can expect Samurai Captain America to be outā€”but you can expecting to cost around the $95 Iron Man and Spider-Man cost whenever he does.
