“I Could Do This All Day”
While Steve Rogers may have hung up his shield in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his comic book counterpart has no plans to do the same anytime soon. That’s probably why the team at Hasbro has decided to bring his comic styled shield to life in the Marvel Legends 1:1 scale Prop Replica line to celebrate Marvel’s 80th Anniversary! While it might not be made of proper Vibranium, this lifesized prop replica is probably the closest you will ever get to owning Captain America’s actual shield. This shield is set to release this fall for around $100. Check out the full product listing below!
Iconic in its design and durability, Captain America’s red, white and blue classic shield is the ultimate combination of offense and defense! Celebrate 80 years of Super Heroes with this Marvel 80th Anniversary Captain America premium roleplay shield, an impressive replica of Cap’s most prized possession.
The commemorative Marvel 80th Anniversary shield is a highly detailed and 1:1 full-scale premium roleplay item from the Marvel Legends line! Specifically modeled on the First Avenger’s trademark symbol, the Marvel Legends Captain America Classic Shield measures an impressive 24 inches in diameter and features 2 adjustable straps, in order to be worn like Captain America! Immediately recognizable, with exceptional detailing and premium finish, the Marvel Legends Captain America Shield roleplay item is a notable addition to any Marvel fan collection.

Heroes In A Halfshell Head To Walmart
If Super7’s SDCC exclusive isn’t giving you the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fix you need, then the team at Playmates, the TMNT’s longtime home, has you covered! This week Playmates revealed a new TMNT Action Figure Box Set that celebrates the brands 35th Anniversary with figures inspired by their original black and white comic appearance.

This new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Box Set is due to be sold exclusively at Walmart starting this August.
Mondo Is Having A Ball With ‘Mondoids’
While a lot of collectors will probably recognize the Mad Balls brand name, very few will recognize the name Mondoids; Mondo’s all new stylized vinyl figures that feature licensed brands and take their design cues from the Mad Balls line! After having been shown at conventions for a few years, Mondo is finally giving collectors a chance to make Mondoids their own this November!
The first wave of the new line is up for preorder now, and features characters from licenses like ‘Gremlins’, ‘Jurassic Park’, ‘Friday The 13th’, and Marvel Comics! The majority of the line will be priced at $19.99, with several larger pieces like the Deluxe Jason Voorhees or the Tyrannosaurus Mega Mondoid will be priced slightly higher.
