Marvel Titan Hero Series - CAPTAIN MARVEL!

Marvel's Avengers - Titan Hero Series: Blast Gear - Captain Marvel - Hasbro 2019

I predict this is going to be a fun year for 12" action figures. With new lines like Jazwares' Fortnite and Spinmaster's DC Universe, we know there will be a handful of new ladies popping up (Hopefully a few from Wonder Woman 1984 as well). Then the Marvel Titan Hero Series will likely continue with MCU figures for Black Widow, The Eternals, and maybe even Doctor Strange and Thor. But I'd be lying if I said my favorite figures weren't the comic-based ones. And those are the figures that tend to really sneak up on you without much advance warning. This comic-style Captain Marvel has been a long time coming. While it is actually a weird blend of comic and movie styles, the coloring and headsculpt definitely put her in the comic category in my opinion (the head is a pantographed comic-style Marvel Legends head after all). Pictures of this figure popped up on Instagram and I found her in a store the following week. Hopefully Hasbro has more sneaky releases like this coming! Let's check out captain Marvel below!

This Titan Hero Series figure has an upscaled reproduction of the 2015 Marvel Legends head. Makes me realized how much some black paint bordering the eyes would add to the figure.

Time for Some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is the new Captain Marvel Titan with her Avengers Endgame version.

And here they are with the generic Chinese knockoff you see on eBay and TaoBao. This version is significantly taller and weird hip articulation, but the head sculpt is great and her power accessories are a bonus over the official Hasbro Titans.

Here are a bunch of my helmeted Captain Marvels. From Left to Right: Minimates, Movie Legends, Comic Legends, Marvel Select, Marvel Titan Hero Series, Marvel Universe, and Disney Toybox.
