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.
