Today we are excited to share the latest pre-order release by Hot Toys for the upcoming movie The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Captain America Marvel Sixth Scale Figure. This is the second figure to be released by Hot Toys after Iron Man’s Mark 43. The Captain America figure is now up for pre-order at USD224.99 and is expected to be released by Q3, 2015. Great news is, this figure comes with a Steve Rodger head sculpt as well. You can use this for the Captain America S.T.R.I.K.E suit if you only have the Captain figure without the civilian suit.

We like the new Captain America suit for this movie compare to the one from the previous Avengers as it looks more solid and modern. Anyway, check out gallery for some of the shots of this figure. Make sure to pre-order to avoid your disappointment of not getting this cool figure.
