Shazam! Now you need a Billy Batson figure.

Definitely. Interesting that the scale of the heads should be so different; but maybe it's the pose. Captain Marvel (the one and only, accept no substitutes) is in a dynamic action pose with pretty much a full body extension, where as the Army man is somewhat more constrained, a simple standing stance with maybe a slight crouch. I'm thinking the Big Red Cheese would actually be a considerably smaller scale than the other; it's only the pose that makes it appear at first glance to be the same sizeŚ the height's there from base to head, but a strict flat-foot standing pose would wind up looking and measuring much smaller. (Keep in mind that Captain Marvel is supposed to be an imposing ideal human maleŚ 6'5" at the smallest, 250+ Lbs of pure muscleŚ while the Army guy is an "average dude," probably 5'8" to 5'10", 180-200 lbs. He should be kinda puny next to CM, not the other way around.

Perhaps.

But I suspect I will repaint him to something else anyway. I often get several of the same one since most superheroes are just guys in a bodysuit and a cape.

Thanks for reading.
