You read that title right, folks! NECA announced their license for toys from Marvel Studios' "The Avengers" a while back, but I (and most people, according to Twitter) thought it would mostly be relegated to Head Knockers and such. Well, we were all wrong! NECA sent along a single photo of the first entry into their "The Avengers" 18" line: Captain America! Honestly, this figure looks really good and appears to feature a lot of the current articulation points seen on NECA's smaller figure lines. If 6", this Cap figure would put the Hasbro version to shame, but at 1/4 scale it heads into Hot Toys and Premium Format territory. We can't wait to see more and for now, here is the full photo, along with some info straight from NECA!
