Time for a quick look at the recently released S.H. Figuarts Bucky. This is the US version, paired up with the Tamashii Impact effect piece in one box. The Impact crater is an alternate color from single retail versions, giving us a desert clay tone. Bucky comes packed with two faces, 2 sets of hands, a gun and clip. His knife is removable on the leg as well. Paint is solid throughout, a nice muted set of colors and great weathering on the arm itself, giving it the metallic feel it deserves. The faces are digitally painted. They aren’t the best Bucky likeness on their own, but are solid human realistic faces. Harsh light is not his friend tho, it brings out a lot of shape to the face and when paired with the digital paint is unflattering. In normal room light, it’s generally fine.
Bottom line, he’s a solid 2nd row addition to a SHF MCU line up. Read on to check it out for yourself after the break courtesy of Tamashii Nations and Bluefin Brands!
