USA Today announced today that a larger-than-life statue of Captain America will be unveiled during this month’s San Diego Comic-Con. The 13-foot bronze statue will eventually make its way to Cap’s hometown of Brooklyn, New York to celebrate Captain America’s 75th anniversary later this summer.

“For the past 75 years, Captain America has inspired generations of fans serving as the ultimate global icon for freedom, strength and doing the right thing,” remarked Paul Gitter, Senior V.P. of licensing for Marvel at Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media.

“We hope that when fans see the statue, they will think back to a favorite comic book, treasured action figure or even be transported back to a special time and place in their lives where Captain America’s values played influence.”

The statue was designed by Marvel artists with Comicave Studios and will travel to Prospect Park in Brooklyn for an August 10th dedication ceremony. Lucky SDCC attendees will get a sneak peak at the statue before it begins the long trek to N.Y.C.

Not able to see the statue in person? No worries. Comicave has plans to release a limited-edition of 750 12-inch bronze replicas and 100-made-to-order 35-inch pewter replicas. Here’s some concept art showing the statue’s design:
