CAPTAIN AMERICA STATUE TO GO UP IN BROOKLYN FOR MARVEL 75TH ANNIVERSARY

CAPTAIN AMERICA STATUE TO GO UP IN BROOKLYN FOR MARVEL 75TH ANNIVERSARY
With July 4th just passing, it’s pretty exciting news to hear that Brooklyn will be getting a statue of one the country’s most patriotic fictional super heroes, Captain America. As reported by USA Today, San Diego’s Comic-Con will be the first to reveal the 13-foot-tall bronze figure. It will then be moved to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on August 10, where a special ceremony will be held in honor of the Marvel hero’s 75th Anniversary. As revealed by a sketch from the comic book company, the statue will have Captain America holding his mighty shield above his head while he stands over a pedestal reading the famous line, “I’m just a kid from Brooklyn.” In addition, fans can also get a hold of smaller-sized versions of the statue through Comicave Studios, the company officially commissioned to create the monument. The miniatures will be available in 12-inch bronze replicas (limited to 750) and 35-inch replicas (limited to 100) of the hero’s Prospect Park statue. No pre-order information is available yet, but stay-tuned to the Comicave website as opening for the Comic-Con nears. captain-america-statue-brooklyn-2
