Minimates Falcon & Antman – Random Toys
Toys based on Civil War have been trickling out the past few months and this week we’re looking at one of the newest ones, the Toys R Us exclusive Civil War Minimates Falcon & Antman set.
This is part of the second wave of Civil War Minimates that TRU has carried. The packaging is the same as the previous wave. The Minimates Falcon & Antman set is the only TRU exclusive set in this wave and has the typical foil sticker to show that it’s a store exclusive.
Falcon is the main reason I grabbed this set. Sam is seen here wearing his Civil War outfit (also seen in Ant-Man and AOU) The outfit is mostly painted on. The backpack is a sculpted piece that attaches to his neck. The arms have some sculpted pieces along with the wings.
Just like the previous Minimates Falcon figure, this one has a removable goggles piece. The goggles are translucent with painted details and fit well on Falcon’s head. Much like Ant-Man, Falcon has a determined/mad facial expression which works well for battle scenes.
Falcon comes with a single peg flight stand, but what was a surprise was the sculpted Redwing drone that comes with it’s own flight stand! Redwing is nicely sculpted and fits the generic flight stand well to simulate flight (or hovering)
Unlike many other Falcon figures, both Minimates Falcon figures come with weapons! There’s only one gun this time, but it’s still more than any other Falcons have come with. You can see here that the wings have a single articulation point. The shoulders have a peg on them that the wings attach to. This allows for some dynamic poses in flight…
As I mentioned, this is the second Minimates Falcon figure and I believe it’s an upgrade from the first one. This Falcon is much more sleeker looking and I love how the wings look now. There is a little limited poseability due to them still connecting to the shoulders, but they definitely have better poseability than the first Minimates Falcon wings.
