Do you have any of the Captain Action/Sectaurs figures? They're supposedly the same buck with some height added to the EFs to bring them up to 4" and I'm wondering how far back in production the two diverged. I wouldn't think simply extending the calf would affect the jointage.


I don't have any of the CA or Sectaurs figure but here is a picture of my Larry Hama figure on my cutting mat to help you judge size. He uses the same base figure as the Eagle Force figures so they will be the same size. If the Sectaurs are true 3 3/4" then these won't scale well in my opinion. You'll end up with gangly or stubby limbs depending on which direction you swap parts. But I hope this helps.

Yeah, the Sectaurs/Capt Action definitely skew small with modern figs. The Hama/Eagle Force seem to be in-line with MTF, modern Joes, etc.

I don't really care about the mythical scaling issues that all root in Hasbro's mistaken belief that merely adding 1/4" to the calves improves proportions; I'm just wondering where/why the *excellence* that is the CA/Sect buck became loosey-goosey for pluv.

For those that got them already, did your package come in the regular mail or by a different shipping service like UPS?

If it's cool with you, may I call dibs on one? ;-)

Yes, Captain Eagle comes with an actual eagle in perched mode. The soft claws don't really let it clip on to his arm that well, but he can hold the back of the feet at least.

I don't have those other kickstarter figures and I'm pretty sure they split off to different factories each with their own set of issues.

I'm curious how the eagle will match up with the 25th Freedom. Do their sizes match up well enough for the CA eagle to pass for a perched Freedom? I'll know on Saturday when my package arrives! :D

No, no tracking. I did sign up for the USPS Informed Delivery for as good as it does, "You have a package coming today. Nah, just kidding, it will be there tomorrow. Psyche, maybe sometime next week. Surprise! You got it yesterday!"
