Welcome to Funko Flashback where I discuss pops from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Anything pop related to the MCU is up for discussion including films and television series. Let’s jump right in with this week’s discussion. Captain America from the Avengers: Age of Ultron set is this week’s featured MCU Pop.
Discussion: I didn’t think Captain America played that big of a role in Age of Ultron. He was there with the team and fighting Ultron’s minions most if the time. He was being a leader like Cap should be even taking the fight to Ultron once but’s he way over matched. Because Cap is Cap it doesn’t matter to him that Ultron is much more powerful. He’ll fight to the end and save as many lives as he can. Captain America is at his best when he’s leading a team and he does that at the beginning and at the end of the film. During the middle of the film they start to plant the seeds of what would become Civil War between Steve and Tony. Age of Ultron is decent as a standalone but better within the MCU as a whole.
Captain America was released in 2015 which is the same year as the film release. This Pop has not been vaulted yet which surprises me but that means for those of you who don’t own one yet you can still get one for retail price. Amazon, eBay, and various Facebook groups would be your best bet. It’s not a bad looking Pop but there are better ones in the set. My personal favorite is the unmasked San Diego Comic Con one. Once this set becomes vaulted I think the value of the Pops will steadily begin to increase similar to the Thor: The Dark World set. If you’re missing any I’d get them while you can at decent prices.
