The thought was the Hammer and/or Shield was going to be released with this hype of the Avengers film. Then the following Christmas the same year. Here we are into August 2013 with MAYBE a possible release of already preordered and prepaid for item that started last year and was promised Q1, then Q2, now MAYBE November 2013 (Q4). This is the second comic con in SD (maybe 3rd I'm not totally sure) that they have displayed the props and promised they are coming soon. I agree with the statement that if they don't get Capt. Shield by Winter Soldier they should not even both and in all honesty, great props or not, I would pull my rights for the props by then if I were Marvel/Disney. It's getting a bit ridiculous.
