Captain America: Civil War Festival + Pics from the TeamCap Lights & Fireworks Show

You've seen the Blue Carpet Event as well as the Cosplay Competition. But there's lots more going on at the Captain America: Civil War Festival which is held at the Event Plaza at the Promenade, Marina Bay Sands. The event is organised by Reed Exhibitions. They are the ones who bring us the Singapore Toy Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) every year. 

One of the highlights are the life-sized statues of Captain America and Iron-Man (above pic). These statues are presented by Hot Toys and can be found at the Action City booth. Photo Op!

Their 1/6 scale counterparts may be viewed at the booth as well. Several of which were just announced for release not long ago. It's great that we can view them in person so quickly. There's Captain America, Hawkeye and Ant-Man based on their appearance in Captain America: Civil War to name a few. There's also Scarlet Witch based on her appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The figures are available for pre-order.

The Festival Exclusive figure is the Steve Rogers Cosbaby. It looks so cute!

There's lots more things to check out. Over at the Toys R Us booth we can get our first look at the upcoming Marvel Legends life-sized Captain America Shield. The shield has a 24" diameter. The one we'll be getting should we pre-order does not come autographed. Booooo! Lol.

Other items up for pre-order are the Marvel Legends Series 12" figures of Captain America and Iron-Man. Each figure will retail at SG$99.90. I checked with the staff and they said that they will be released around August or September.

The Marvel Legends Giant-Man BAF series as well as the War-Machine / Disco Iron-Man 2-pack are available at the booth. There are no Black Panthers in sight. Those looking for Nick Fury can try your luck.

Simply Toys has a booth there as well and you can find various Marvel items there from Monogram, Funko, Kotobukiya, eFX and Sideshow to name a few.

If you like your photo with a Captain America: Civil War background, you can have one taken and you can download it from the STGCC Facebook Festival Album. All you have to do is "LIKE" The STGCC Facebook Page.

Other activities include the Shooting Gallery and Laser Tag. A small fee is required to participate.

The last day of the Festival is tomorrow, 24 April 2016. If there's anything you're interested in you better hurry down!

Now for some pics from the TeamCap Lights & Fireworks Show held yesterday. This was TeamCap's response to Team Iron-Man where Robert Downey Jr had the Eiffel Tower lighted up in Iron-Man's colours. 

TeamCap would start the show from the Helix Bridge. I stationed myself at the Youth Olympic Park for a wider view. As the fireworks started, shots of Captain America and flashing images of his shield were projected on the Art Science Museum as well as on MBS. There were also scenes from the Captain America: Civil War trailer. The fireworks were nice but it really should have had some music. Maybe there was and I couldn't hear it from where I was.  

With regards to who did better, I think Team Iron-Man's stunt was better. TeamCap's felt more like a promotion for the movie, which of course is the objective. I felt that what we saw was not enough a response from the character's standpoint. I'm TeamCap but I have to hand this particular battle to Team Iron-Man.
