Captain America is readily identifiable by his striking red, white, and blue uniform, complete with red gloves and boots, black belt, and blue winged hood. However, Captain America and anyone dressing in a Captain America costume are incomplete without metal Captain America shields. In the comic books and movies, Captain America wields his shield to take down bad guys and protect himself again bullets and other flying objects. Although there are inexpensive plastic Captain America shields available, a deluxe metal Captain America shield adds a touch more of authenticity to a costume. There are varying grades of metal available. In general, Cap's shield measures between 23 and 24 inches in diameter and often features two red rings, one white ring, and a blue center topped with a white star. The shield has a slight curvature to it as well. Older versions of Cap's shield from his times during World War II are also available featuring three stars against a blue background on top and several red and white vertical stripes on the bottom. All of these quality metal shields are available from reliable sellers on eBay with a vast inventory to choose from. Whether you are into cosplay or just love Captain America, metal Captain America shields make ideal additions to any collection.Shop the extensive inventory of action figures and other Captain America comic book hero action figures!
