CAPTAIN AMERICA by NECA

This massive Captain America figure is from NECA and stands a full 18” tall and features “loads” of articulation and detail. It’s the first of its kind from NECA (on the Marvel license) but they assure us that you can expect more 1:4 figures soon, mentioning that the Marvel universe extends beyond the Avengers and thus exciting fangirls and fanboys everywhere. We can’t wait.

CAPTAIN AMERICA SEQUEL DATE ANNOUNCED

…And we’ve got a long way to go.

From Hardcore Nerdity:

The Walt Disney Studios has announced a release date for Marvel Studios’ sequel to the blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger on April 4, 2014. The second installment will pick-up where the highly anticipated Marvel’s The Avengers (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.

‘Til then, we recommend killing time with the Avengers movie and this awesome rendering of Chris Evans as the great American hero:

Captain America and…Captain America!

TWO new renditions of Captain America can now be pre-ordered! From the amazing designers and sculptors at Sideshow Collectibles comes a pair of Cap items that capture him as he appears both in the comics and in the recent movie! Check these out.


First of all, here’s an incredible bust of the nation’s hero rendered at LIFE-SIZE. Yep, that’s right. Life-size. So when you set this up on your shelf and look into its steely blue eyes, you can know for a fact that that’s exactly what it would be to look at the real deal (we don’t suggest you do it too often). He ships in the 4th quarter of this year.


Based on Chris Evans’ portrayal of Captain America in “The First Avenger” this awesome 21-inch statue captures the spirit and the look of the film and the character brilliantly. He features real fabrics and is individually painted and finsihed. It includes helmeted and non-helmeted switch-out portraits and ships in the 4th quarter of this year!

This Month: CAPTAIN AMERICA 3.75-INCH FIGURES

Arriving this month, you can order the first series of 3.75-inch figures from the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER film. The first series has THREE figures of Cap himself, plus a Winter Soldier for good measure. Take a look.

Ultimates Cap, 1940s Battlefield Cap and my personal favourite for overkill Missle-Launching Cap look great even at so small a scale and Winter Soldier adds some much needed variety. As ever, you can purchase these guys individually or get them as a complete set to save a full $6.85.

BLACK WIDOW & WINTER SOLDIER 2-PACK

Black Widow & Winter Soldier make up the latest of the Marvel Twin Packs & Face-off box sets. Pairing the beautiful-but-deadly Natalia Romanova with Bucky Barnes’ Winter Soldier, the two-pack also includes alternate heads for each character, to allow a couple different looks. Both stand about 6 inches tall, feature a ton of articulation (especially impressive for the size) and look just great, ready for display by any Marvel fan.

And if you’re among those waiting for more from the Avengers team, then you might be pleased to at least have this to tide you over, from SoulCulture>’s write-up on the Empire Captain America cover:

“The First Avenger: Captain America” will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

Chris Evans will star as Captain America and Sebastian Stan will portray Cap’s sidekick Bucky in the film.

Joe Johnston has signed on to direct Marvel Studios’ “The First Avenger: Captain America,” hitting theaters on July 22, 2011. One of a continuing slate of films being produced by Marvel Studios based on the Marvel characters, “The First Avenger: Captain America” joins “Iron Man 2″ on May 7; 2010, “Thor” on May 6, 2011; and “The Avengers” on May 4, 2012.

Entertainment Weekly FIRST LOOK: CAPTAIN AMERICA

We’ve already seen a couple images from the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA film, but now Entertainment Weekly is bringing us something more…

For fans of superhero movies, the most patriotic holiday on next year’s calendar won’t fall on July 4th, but exactly 18 days later. That’s when Paramount Pictures will release Captain America: The First Avenger, a big budget adaptation of the Marvel Comics shield-baring super-soldier. The new issue of Entertainment Weekly offers your first look at star Chris Evans in the hero’s red, white and blue threads — but you can get a peek at the man in uniform right here, right now.

Our story also brings you to the set of the London-based production, directed by Joe Johnston (The Wolfman, October Sky). During a break in shooting, Evans — on his second tour of Marvel duty, having played the Human Torch in Fox’s Fantastic Four films — explained he was reluctant to accept the call of Captain America, in part because he had already portrayed a Marvel-ous mystery man. Of course, he also worried about the potential cost of failure, but he also worried the potential cost of fame should the movie be a hit.

Our story also brings you to the set of the London-based production, directed by Joe Johnston (The Wolfman, October Sky). During a break in shooting, Evans — on his second tour of Marvel duty, having played the Human Torch in Fox’s Fantastic Four films — explained he was reluctant to accept the call of Captain America, in part because he had already portrayed a Marvel-ous mystery man. Of course, he also worried about the potential cost of failure, but he also worried the potential cost of fame should the movie be a hit.

“At the time, I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m f—-ed. If the movie hits, I’m f—-ed!’” After declining the part three times, Evans took a meeting with Marvel execs and Johnston and was dazzled by their plans for the movie. He still felt wary about suiting up for Captain America — but then he had an epiphany. “I was just scared,” he says. “I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear.’” Evans signed a six-picture deal with Marvel to play the character, and he has no regrets: “I can’t believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America.”

The movie — which also serves to set up Marvel’s 2012 superhero team-up, The Avengers — hews closely to Captain America’s WWII-era origins. The year is 1942, and Steve Rogers is a scrawny lad who desperately wants to fight Nazis for his country but can’t because he’s been deemed physically unfit. His fate — and his physique — is radically transformed when he signs up for Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation that turns wimps into studs using drugs and assorted sci-fi hoo-ha. There’s a love interest (Major Peggy Carter, played Haley Atwell), there’s a sidekick (Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stans), and there’s the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a magical object known as The Tesseract (comic fans know it better as The Cosmic Cube).

“The interesting thing about this character is that he’s an everyman who in the course of a few minutes become a perfect human specimen. That has to create some interesting personal issues,” says Johnston. “I saw it as an opportunity to make a superhero movie that felt real, that didn’t have to rely on an overabundance of fantasy elements.”

If you’re a Captain America fan counting down to the film, then here are a couple figures you might enjoy in the mean time–you know, until the movie brings a boatload more!
