The Captain

Post by jodokast » Wed Sep 21, 2011 10:30 am

Say what you want about them, but I got a beautiful shield from the Megabloks Marvel packs. And it immediately fell into the hands of a real minifig.

Captain America and the Howling Commandos circa 1944.

Some of the weapons may change eventually, but for now the rifles work just fine.

With the red and white stripes he is clearly one of Waldo's allies. Also, that Lady Liberty minifig in series 6 is bound to be his main squeeze.

*****Edit, Content Added*****
During one of the many great wars one scientist discovered a way to make common soldiers into heroes at the flip of a switch. One of the leaders of the army demanded to have the process performed on him. The scientist knew it wasn’t ready but was forced into it anyway, and thus was born the Skull. The scientist then fled and was given asylum by a rival nation. It was here he perfected the technique and performed it successfully once before being killed suddenly by a convenient plot device. Therefore, the only hero born of this process was the Captain.

The Captain was deployed to the frontlines of the war, where he formed an elite fighting force known as the Howling Commandos. It wasn’t long before the Captain and the Skull crossed paths, and their paths continued to cross throughout the entirety of the war, as neither was able to finish off the other.

And so they fought on and on, each appearing to die at times but inevitably returning due to convuluted plot twists. Also, they always seemed to fight over a small blue cube that was purported to have vast powers, perhaps even to rival that of the OTC.

Now the pictures.
The Captain and his commandos.

The Skull, who is currently in possesion of the small blue cube. He has developed some weapons from it as demonstrated by his commandos.

wow. form what it looks like, they really screwed up the back of the shield... not much poseability, and you have to hold it a full arms length away form you if you want it to be vertical.

Very cool. But in a few years, lego is to come out with a Captain America minifig.

At least you can say that you had Captain America before it was mainstream.

I was expecting The Captain from Hellsing, actually. Of course, I already got that one covered, and Captain America seems like someone that can definitely have his place in Brikwars.

It looks to be the exact same handle design as the original Lego shields. You know, the ones that they still include in the Kingdoms sets from this year.

I don't like those either :D . I don't mind the secondary handle it has, because it lets you get a sideways grip on it, but the handles stick out way too much imo. I much prefer the ones that are one, say, the gladiator shields, or any of tlc's oval shields.

Nice work! One possibility would be to get some WWII weapons from Brickarms or something.

Yeah, the handle is like the old-style shields, and I actually found out about Lego making Marvel figures when I was looking for ideas to make his helmet. Even still I'm such a fan of Cap that I couldn't wait around for them to make an "official" version. I really like the face for Dum Dum Dugan.

Ahh, Captain America. One of the best Superheroes of all time. Excellent job! Can't wait to see him in action.

Nice choice of body pieces and gear, it actually looks like him. Now you MUST make Red Skull and his Hydra minions.

I just found the head I'm going to use for Red Skull, the devil head from that boardgame. Though I haven't found the bodies I want for Hydra yet.
