Anybody know what this Captain America is from?

Avengers assemble! This is a 2.3" (5.8 cm) tall 2005 Hasbro/Marvel Captain America mini action figure. I'm not sure what line/assortment of toys this particular version of Steven Rogers is from though, so, I'm hoping one of you can tell me. The sculpt is impressive; there are lots of fine details, right down to the canteen bottle on the back of the belt and the scale-mail texture pattern on his shirt. The shield has a small wedge of plastic shaved off the bottom (probably an artifact from the molding process), which is the only physical flaw on an otherwise outstanding rendition of the character. The paint is a tad sloppy here-and-there, but, pretty good as a whole, especially considering the size of the canvas. He's only got three points of articulation, all of them rotating cut joints, at the neck and shoulders. While you can't do a lot with that, at least you can vary the positioning of Cap's arms and head a bit. The shield isn't a removable accessory; it's permanently attached to his right forearm.

That looks like him to me, thanks! I spent quite a while searching on Google images and eBay--sure, I got hundreds of hits for "Captain America figure/toy", but I never saw any photos of this particular one when I looked. The brighter paintjob on mine seems to match the one in the Face Off tube 3-pack. Anyhoo, I gave you credit, on my web site, in my write-up for the figure, for helping me identify what line he's from.

Interestingly, I noticed that Toy Biz's name is on the package in the first photo, but mine has a Hasbro copyright mark--they must have retooled the mold to reflect the company change.

Thanks for the shout out sir! I'm pretty good with searches and I'm pretty sure my son had one of the tubes from Toys R Us. Definitely looks like a retool. Glad to help! :D

It doesn't look familiar to me.
