I've been reading some forums and from people who were at Wondercon early impressions of the Captain America Shield is that its NOT made of metal but fiberglass or painted resin.
I can't confirm this as EFX has no info out there but just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
Personally if it's not going to be metal I wouldn't be interested. Which is a shame it could be fantastic.
Again no confirmation but this is from guys who were at the show.
Anyone else have hands on with any of the replicas?
Today, The Avengers assemble on Blu-ray and DVD and eFX is excited to be releasing the first in its long awaited series of Marvel collectibles!
Available today are 3 replica posters as seen in Captain America: The First Avenger. These posters are made from the original digital files and are proudly printed in the USA. To commemorate our first release, for a limited time, we are offering FREE shipping to any address in the USA! This is NOT a pre-order, the posters are in stock and ready to ship!
Then on October 16, Agent Coulson's vintage Captain America trading cards from The Avengers will be available. You get BOTH the "Near Mint" set that Agent Coulson proudly boasted that he searched for and collected and the "bloody" set that Nick Fury used to unite the Avengers. They come in a full color presentation folder.
And, finally, we are REALLY excited to announce our first pre-order for our new line of MARVEL Limited Edition prop replicas. The first items available will be Thor's incredible helmet as seen in Thor and Thor's Mjolnir as seen in The Avengers. Many of you saw our prototypes at WonderCon, Comic Con and Star Wars Celebration. Pre-order will begin on October 9.We are working out the final details and will be announcing the price on our website on October 6.
who knows when release date will actually be but its nice to hear SOMETHING ...
i dont know.... thats really the main piece that i've been wanting...kind of ridiculous that it took them a whole year before they got 2 pieces delivered and no other pieces even available for pre-order? so probably 2.5 - 3 years since initial teasing before another item gets delivered...
Not having the Cap shield available is saving me money. But seriously. The amount of time is getting ridiculous.
I agree. I want the shield and I never would have fathomed that it would even gone for PO buy now. I wouldn't put a deposit down with this company at this point. Ill have to get a free PO if it comes out.
