Toy Fair 2014: Diamond Select Prepares for Captain America: Winter Soldier

It's that time of year where giant size corporations snag the most sought after toy reveals, shouting to their teaming masses about things their demographic generally cares nothing about. Yea, yea...I'm bitter. Today MTV takes a break from Teen Mothers and Macklemore's Tweets to reveal a small stack of Diamond Select's Captain America Winter Soldier merchandise. Here's the weird part...and this happens every year as well...particularly to Diamond. Marvel/Disney must have straight up given Diamond (ie; Previews Magazine) the go ahead to reveal Falcon from Hasbro's 3.75 inch action figure line (which we showed off HERE), but could there still be some mandate that Captain America's Stealth Suit (seen in action figure pictures and the trailer) be somewhat secret??!! Check this. To the left is the suit in question via the Marvel Select Captain America: Winter Soldier Action Figure, which has been kept under a silhouette until today. Notice the oddball thing? Take a closer look...

WHOOOOO painted over the shield? In photoshop, no less. Cap stands on a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier base that will connect to Falcon's base. Falcon has not been revealed yet. Here's the capper to what must be a joke clearly no one at Diamond is laughing at. Below is a shot of Diamond Select's Captain America Winter Soldier Minimates. Note...the stealth shield...right....there....

The lineup will include:

Stealth Uniform Captain America with Brock Rumlow (Crossbones)
Classic Captain America with Winter Soldier
Black Widow with Falcon
Agent Sitwell with Batroc

Conspicuous in their absence are Crossbones' trademark mask and Batroc's trademark mustache. While it is easy enough for Rumlow to pull on a mask at some point in the film, I don't expect Batroc will grow a silly stash by the final battle. Shame. Men wear mustaches like that these days. They totally could have pulled it off!

New York Toy Fair is mere DAYS away, so keep checking back for more!
