Continuing the Capt theme we have one of the packs from LCS wave 51. Fury and Rogers and SHIELD agents; oh my!
The box is the expanded window box so you can see both characters along with the accessories in the middle. The character names and control art bust shots are below the windows. The sides have individual control art of each character. On the back are the mini-bios of each character along with group picture of all figures in this wave. This pack has a special “Includes STEVE ROGERS parts!” blurb on the front.
Nick Fury Jr (bonus Steve Rogers parts)
Nick Fury, Jr (originally known as Marcus Johnson) inherited a bit of his father’s Infinity Formula along with similar taste in eyewear fashion. And as a bonus we get Commander Rogers!
Face-wise, Jr looks just like his dad and well translated to minimate form; thankfully no head hole. Rogers’ headpiece is good too and comes with blonde hairpiece. Since the outfit is the same for both characters they took a perfect opportunity to include both heads and essentially give you two figures for the price of one.
The rest of his outfit is spot on! The white star and stripes stand out very well along with the black muscle definition highlights. His shoulder straps, belt, holster and boots are perfect too. They’ve included a spare pair of Caucasian hands for Rogers and even an extra one with wrist strap and peg for his shield. I’m very thankful for this as one of my pet peeves is when there’s only the hand with the wrist peg so it stands out when you display him sans shield.
For accessories he comes with a clear base plate along with translucent Captain America shield and gun for the holster. All these extras along with great pieces like his belt, boots and shoulder straps make for excellent custom fodder.
Honestly I can’t think of any way to improve upon this (these) figure(s); it’s perfect.

Heavy SHIELD Agent
This is round two for the 616 version of S.H.I.E.L.D. army builders having first released a regular agent in wave 43. This wave ups the ante with a heavy armored version.
He has a new helmet along with a spare flat-top hairpiece to go with a fairly generic face. His protective armor jacket torso cover is nicely detailed and also has a hole in the back where his jetpack can attach (more on that later). Underneath you have the same base details seen on previous agent. He also comes with the same white torso harness with gun holster in front along with buccaneer cuffs, belt and leg knife holster. The boots are different and have the larger padding up the front.
For accessories there is the standard included clear base plate along with jetpack, knife, handgun and larger tech gun. For the jetpack there is also a translucent orange jet blast and flame blast that can be added to the pack to boost him off the ground. With all the similar extras from before along with heavy armor extras, it makes is real easy to quick swap some parts to make a full army of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.
So many extras but continuity of figures makes this a perfect army builder.
