The Figures

Here we have the two MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) Falcon figures. On the left is the Falcon that came in a 2-pack boxset with MCU Winter Soldier, both based on the Avengers: Infinity War movie. On the left is the Walmart Exclusive Falcon. He actually came out with Winter Soldier too, but they are in individual boxes, and based on Captain America: Civil War movie.

Unlike the Winter Soldier figures which were quite distinct from each other, the two Falcon figures are quite similar, albeit different tones of paintwork.

2-pack Falcon comes with a rifle, and Walmart Falcon comes with Redwing (his flying robot bird thingy). Both of them comes with their wings of course. Only the wings are exactly the same.

The two figures are of the exact same mold. Here at the back, a small difference is the grey part which was painted at the lower back just below the waist swivel joint for the 2-pack Falcon, which actually makes it look better. Just a minor difference though.

Differences

Although the colour scheme is similar, there are slight differences here and there. The 2-pack Falcon has darker and glossier grey, compared to Walmart Falcon where the grey is very dull and plastic-like.

You can see, up close how much better the 2-pack Falcon’s grey is. The red paintwork is also a tinge darker, and several red lines were added at the abs area.

You can see the slight difference in the arms too. 2-pack Falcon lost a patch of silver armour on the deltoids. The silver armour parts are also different in shade; 2-pack is a shade lighter and shinier, whereas Walmart Falcon is darker silver and has a slightly weathered effect. Both of them looks nice to me.

Here you can see the silver on the boots of the 2-pack Falcon is more glossy as well. Its missing the brown strap of the Walmart Falcon though.

The head is also different. Firstly the facial hair. The goatee of the 2-pack stretches to the back and connects with the sideburns. Walmart Falcon has a goatee that does not connect with the sideburns.

Next are the goggles. 2-pack Falcon has silver goggles while Walmart Falcon has black goggles. One minor by important detail is the earpiece (which connects to the ears) of the goggles are paint for 2-pack Falcon, but its unpainted on the Walmart Falcon, which actually makes it look weird.

Lastly, the accessories. The backpack of the 2-pack Falcon has a darker and more glossy silver than the lighter and plastic-like grey of the Walmart Falcon’s backpack and Redwing.

The 2-pack Falcon comes with a rifle instead of Redwing.

Here’s just a picture of the folded-in Redwing attached to the backpack.

I definitely prefer the 2-pack Falcon. The darker and glossier grey makes the figure looks better, and the head (goatee and goggles) look better too. The Walmart Falcon colours looks dull when they are compared side-by-side.

2-pack Falcon for the win! For me at least. Heh.
