Target is the Place for Captain America: Civil War Exclusives
Marvel recently dropped THAT Captain America- Civil War trailer (you know the one) and it was a doozy! Not only did it give us more Black Panther goodness, but it also gave us our first glimpse of the debut of the MCU's version of Spider-Man (!!!!). The hype train is moving full steam ahead and merchandise is hitting shelves in abundance. Target is currently carrying a few awesome Captain America: Civil War exclusives in their toy section.
They have a not one, but TWO 12" figure sets available; one for Team Cap and one for Team Stark. They are all part of the basic 12" line of budget figures, with some looking better than others. The sculpts in this line are hit and miss in terms of quality. The Team Stark pack, including Black Widow, Black Panther, War Machine, Iron Man, and Vision is a really great looking set. Black Widow, War Machine, and Black Panther look pretty darn good. The Team Cap, featuring Cap, Falcon, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, and Winter Soldier, not so much. The faces on Hawkeye and Ant-Man look...off. For $44.99, the price is right if you're looking to collect them all and save a few bucks.
Also available is an exclusive 2.5" "Miniverse" figure pack. The figures include Captain America, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Black Widow, Black Panther, Vision, Winter Soldier, Falcon, and War Machine. For their size, the sculpts aren't half bad, though the figures are a bit small for my taste. It would have been nice to have seen a Scarlet Witch and Ant-Man included in the set. Also on shelves are a pair of Iron Man "Arc FX Armor Gloves." They are motion-activated and also have lights and sounds. Unfortunately, these are made for smaller hands, so my dreams of becoming a "Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist" have been dashed by my man hands. All these exclusives can be found now at your local Target stores.
