D23 2019 starts today and runs through Sunday at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. To kick off the event, Hot Toys announced a Special Edition Captain America 1/6 Scale Figure this morning to kick off the 2019 D23 Expo! The product info states that it is “first available” at D23. This might mean it is going to pop up on Sideshow for those not attending the expo. Keep your eyes peeled on their Avengers section and we’ll update with pre-order info. Check out the full gallery and product info from Hot Toys below!
It looks like the trade-off you’re getting is accessories for headsculpts. the D23 edition appears to only come with a helmeted head and “interchangeable lower faces.” You still get the compass, an updated LED light-up Mjolnir, a tesseract, scepter, and that’s about it. The Shield, if newly sculpted, is still close enough to the original to not really be a material difference. It looks like Hot Toys have given collectors yet another tough decision to make between two similar editions.
UPDATE 10:43 MT 8/23/2019: New images of the actual product from the Hot Toys TH (Thailand) group have surfaced:
【Avengers: Endgame – 1/6th scale Captain America Collectible Figure (Special Edition)】
“Avengers! Assemble.” – Captain America
Steve Rogers, a man out of time and out of sync with the country he sworn to defend, finds himself called into action to complete a mission with the universe’s entire existence on the line. As the leader of the Avengers, this Super-Soldier will need to bring together his surviving Avengers companions and the World’s Mightiest Heroes once again to fight the war for lives.
Celebrating the kick off of D23 Expo 2019, Hot Toys is excited to present today the 1/6th scale Captain America collectible figure from Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame for the ultimate fans experience.

The Special Edition available in selected markets will include a Loki’s scepter, a Tesseract, and lightning effect accessories as bonus items exclusively for collectors.
