Round 2 shares with us a first look at packaged production samples of their new Captain Action Classic Covers Series, limited edition variants of the already issued Captain America and Thor Costume sets... but with some cool differences that hard-core Marvel and Toy fans will appreciate!
The Captain America set reflects the Golden Age covers, when Cap's shield had an extra blue and white stripe. He often wore a red belt, so that unique item has been included that as well. And for this series, Round 2 is offering a bonus something special: Classic Cover postcards, celebrating many wonderful Golden Age covers - most are Simon & Kirby covers.
The Thor set is all about Simonson's run and offers collectors a bearded Thor mask and Classic Cover postcards spotlighting Simonson's wonderful 80's run.
For these sets only, Round 2 will be offering just the basic versions to both Toys"R"Us and Comic Shops. Look for these limited edition sets on toy shelves right before Thanksgiving. Retailer response has been great, so be sure and grab your sets early... these are sure to sell fast.
