…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:

Sideshow’s RED SKULL 12” Figure

Hugo Weaving cannot be action-figured enough; there’s just something about him that makes you want to reduce him in size and stick him on your shelf. From Agent Smith to Elrond to V and now Red Skull, there’s a tradition building and it’s very, very awesome. Pre-order now and this ships out in the second quarter of this year.

Of course, this is a Sideshow figure, so you can be sure you’re getting the best– and the most. There are a ton of features and accessories that come along with the 12-inch figure and they help create a unique experience whether it’s for play or display.

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!
