Captain America’s Shield!

Tell your friends about this! (Other social media links below the post!)


As many of you are aware by now, a Captain America movie is being planned for July 2011, tentatively called “Captain America: The First Avenger“. Many of us at the Nation can’t help but drool on ourselves at the assumption that this film will not only have Captain America for the first time on the big-screen, but may contain other famous names associated with the Avengers series such as Thor (whose movie is slated for May 2011), Iron Man, and The Incredible Hulk!

A company called “Sideshow Collectibles” was offering 3 high quality limited collector versions of Captain America’s shield. 2 versions (the triangular 1940’s classic limited to 250 pieces, and the circular 1960’s modern version limited to 750 pieces) are already sold out and are really hard to find online. Amazon is carrying a few and I added a link to their site below so you know if/when they are still available.

They have 1 version left, and it looks awesome. It is being billed as the Limited Edition Museum Replica of Captain America’s 1940’s Shield – Version 2
and is limited to 500 pieces. It is priced on the site for $349.99. In order to alleviate even the tightest wallet, they also have a flex-pay option and offer a rewards “points” program. This is sure to be a collectors item and with the launch of the movie, who know how much more it will be worth. Not sure how many more they have or how much longer it will be available, so you might want to hurry considering this is the last style they are currently offering.

Specs from their website are:

  • Product Size: 29″ H (736.6mm) x 24″ W (609.6mm) x 4″ L (101.6mm)*
  • Product Weight: 20.00 lbs (9.07 kg)*
  • Est. Shipping Weight: 20.00 lbs (9.07 kg)*

The shield is hand painted and made of steel (sorry not bullet-proof steel). You can see some more images of the shield and get more information by clicking the link below.
