Showcase: Walmart Exclusive Gigantic Battles Skrull Giant Man VS Captain America
Let’s face it, Secret Invasion was not the best of events in terms of story telling, but Leinil Yu did draw some nice designs for the myriad of Super Skrulls unleashed on earth. Skrull Giant Man had the powers of, well, Giant Man (Maybe that’s all they had left); hence the reason for this over sized Skrull. The figure is well painted with wash over lays and the detail in the Skrull face is great. The Bucky Cap figure is unfortunately on one of the early body sculpts (Vison, Daredevil etc) so he looks a little stunted and oddly proportioned. The paint is good however, and the red, white and blue portions of his costume have a metallic finish. I think these two only had a very brief ‘battle’ in a Secret Invasion issue, but once again, Hasbro nailed it (at the time) with showcasing lesser known and one off obscure characters and bringing them to plastic form.
This set was one of the first three to be released in 2009, the other two were Goliath and Iron Man sets, with Goliath in two variant colours.
