I dig the movie Winter Soldier figure from Hasbro, but felt it could have been improved upon. My favorite look Winter Soldier had in the movie was no goggles, but with the mask still on, so you could still see his eyes. So I took the masked head that came with the figure and sliced the mask and goggles off, dremeled out the back a lot, cut the goggles off and separated them from the mask, and now you can slip them on and off the unmasked head very easily. They tuck in under his hair, so it holds great. I also removed the eye paint on the unmasked head, since he only wore it for all of 2 seconds in the movie and I think he looks better without it. I also added some stubble to the face and a black wash to his hair. So now there's four different looks the figure can have. I repainted his torso area black, and then dry brushed a bit of leather over it, which is much more movie accurate than the light brown it was before. I did the same to his boots, and did a general weathering job over the whole figure to make it look more realistic. I cut off the molded knife on the back of his belt and gave him one from a NECA Dutch figure that can be removed easily. The finishing touch was equiping him with weapons he used in the movie. I gave him a rifle similar to one he used in the film, and also cobbled together a gun that looked like the one in the movie that launched that "magnetic disc bomb" in his initial scene. Now Winter Soldier is ready to take down Cap!
