This will be a relatively short review as there is not a huge amount I can say about this toy anyway, and the fact I thought it a tad disappointing. How can you go wrong with a simple toy like this?
Hasbro, the makers of this toy, have a licence with Marvel Comics and do churn out a lot of toys; some good, some not so. They currently are cashing in on the success of the Avengers movie, so a lot more toys are out there with characters like Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye etc who were not previously so mainstream (Marvel licence bread and butter is usually Spider-Man and The Hulk).
This particular toy, 'Marvel Avengers Battle Chargers Captain America' is part of a series of figures and accompanying gadgets/ vehicles , and in this pack we have the Captain America figure and his 'Furyfire Assault Cycle'. It comes with a minigun that fires a missile as well.
First impressions were ok, if not great. The bike and figure are very small, and young hands may find it a bit fiddly; about 3/4 inches in size I think. I wasn't too impressed with the overall quality - plastic just seemed a little cheap, and the paint job wasn't great on the figure itself, not the right shades you would expect. The bike itself looks ok, but feels a little too lightweight, again adding to the feeling of cheapness. Funnily though, the level of detail on bike and costume, paint aside, was actually pretty decent; you just had to squint to see it!
I have seen the toy in action, and it seems to be popular, but I still think it a tad too small for this age group, and something that will be easily lost if not careful.
Overall, not really a toy I can recommend. Too small for the age group its aimed at, and not enough to it for older children. There are plenty of other superhero toys out there that are more appropriate I think.
Pass this one by.
