I’ve got to hand it to Hasbro, they’ve been pumping out variants and new figures for the Super Hero Squad that seem almost unimaginable, especially since these toys are designed for 3-year-olds. But that doesn’t stop them from bringing new characters such as Bucky as Captain America wielding a gun and a knife. After only two years, Hasbro has released the latest incarnation of Captain America.
