Anthony Mackie's reaction to seeing his new action figure for the first time was captured on TV, but he appeared to have some constructive criticism. 

The 42-year-old Falcon and the Winter Soldier star was a guest on The Late Show on Monday, April 26, where host Stephen Colbert surprised the actor with something he hadn't yet laid eyes upon. The toy unveiling came after Anthony was revealed as the new Captain America during the Disney+ series' season finale last week. 

"I've got something that I have been told you have not seen yet, but it's pretty awesome," Stephen said as he pulled out the boxed plaything. "This is your action figure." 

A stunned Anthony replied, "No, shut up!" He added, "Where did you get that?" 

This led Stephen to quip, "I don't know, I work in TV. They give me things." He went on to demonstrate the toy's features by explaining, "The wings are foldable, like this."

Anthony's initial reaction was, "That's dope." However, after getting a better look, it didn't seem like he was too blown away by the craftsmanship.

"Let me see," he continued. "From this distance, he looks more like Jamie Foxx than me." After a long pause, the actor laughed before ultimately concluding about the figure, "That's dope." 

Stephen also asked the Marvel star if he had any enhancement to his muscular physique on the show.

"I will say, there's no muscle suit under my suit," Anthony replied. "That's my pride. Seven movies in, I'm like, I don't want a muscle suit under my suit. So I had to work out every day, all day."

When the host said he assumed Anthony had to exercise even harder for this show to get the triangular shape he has to his body, the Hurt Locker star agreed. "I had to get the Dorito," he exclaimed. "That's what it's called—shoulders to waist."
