An AFOL. I love talking about, creating and playing with LEGO bricks.
Today we will be looking at the LEGO Winter Soldier Polybag set 5002943. This set came out in 2015, has 4 pieces and was designed for people 6 and up.
Originally, this Polybag set was given away free with purchases of the VERY Expensive SHIELD Helicarrier set. This made the figure rare and a very expensive purchase for collectors. However, LEGO later started giving the figure away with any purchase of 75 dollar or more. This flooded the market and quickly dropped the price for everybody.
The figure itself is amazing. I was blown away by the printing. LEGO did a great job of adding lots of detail to the torso piece. I love all the holsters and ammo clips around his chest, waist and leg. The silver bionic arm just puts this figure over the top. It even has the red star that represented the soviet union’s red army.
The figure comes with two faces. One face is very similar to the one we see worn by the actor Sebastian Stan. The other face has the classic superhero Domino Mask seen in the comics and a nice connection to his older identity of Bucky Barnes.
My only critique is that this figure should have come with some sort of weapon. The winter soldier is always using weapons.
