This is another member of the Avengers I collected last week. The head sculpt is good as Hot Toys has delivered again. You may read my next review here.

As mentioned previously, the head sculpt with mask has a perfect likeness of Chris Evans as Captain America in The Avengers.
The blue pouches are sculpted. The shield is hold by two straps with buckles that go around the figure's arm.
The outfit is top notch. The colour and quality of fabric that Hot Toys used is pretty movie accurate.
The boots caught my attention due to the great details and weathering.
Unfortunately, the pants restrict the legs' movement.
Besides the zip at the back of the outfit, there is also a press stud that attaches the belt to the pants.
The colour of the gauntlets and gloved hands match very well with the boots.
Just take pictures of Captain America throwing his shield..You may read my previous post on the packaging here (Next review here).

The box packaging is simple. The front cover shows an image of the monk pig with some graphic background.
Lift the box cover is a die-cut foam that holds the figure and accessories in place.
The head sculpt is good but not much skin texture. The colour application on the body is bad as the head, hands and torso have different skin colour.
The torso of this figure is not made of solid rubber. You can feel inside the torso is hollow when pressing it.
The clothing is perfectly tailored to the monk pig and it does not restrict his articulation.
The gunny shoes are well made to 1/6 scale and they look very realistic.
I do not like the bendy hands as sometimes they cannot hold the accessories properly. I prefer those sculpted hands for more poses.
Lift Bajie's head up to hold the flying position..Haha!!
Here is a picture of Bajie not wearing his hat :)
The nine-toothed rake (九齿钉耙) is Bajie's primary weapon and it's made of metal. It has lots of fine details. If you are a big fan of Chinese TV drama series "Journey to the West", this is a must have figure for your collection (another character related to the drama I collected is Sun Wukong, the Monkey King).
