Witness the unveiling of an extraordinary LEGO creation—a captivating set allowing fans to construct their own Captain America shield. This awe-inspiring replica, measuring two-thirds the size of the real thing, is meticulously assembled using over 3,000 LEGO pieces. It's a remarkable tribute to Steve Rogers' iconic shield, which has left an indelible mark on the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its debut in Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011.
The journey of Captain America's shield mirrors the remarkable odyssey of its original wielder, Steve Rogers. Encountering freezing ice and eventual rescue, the shield accompanied Steve throughout his modern-day adventures until he passed it on to Sam Wilson in the climactic moments of Avengers: Endgame. Soon, Sam will wield the shield in his upcoming appearance in Captain America: New World Order.
Part of the Marvel Infinity Saga line of LEGO models, the Captain America shield set is now available for pre-sale. Priced at $199.99, this masterful creation consists of 3,128 pieces and, once constructed, proudly spans an impressive diameter of 18.5 inches.
Designed with adult enthusiasts in mind, the Captain America shield set bears an 18+ label. Alongside its construction, the set includes a stand where the shield can be elegantly displayed. The stand features a nameplate adorned with the LEGO logo, The Infinity Saga logo, and Captain America's name, adding a touch of grandeur to this remarkable piece.
While Steve Rogers has retired from his role as Captain America, the mantle and the shield endure through Sam Wilson. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a Phase 4 TV show, depicted Sam grappling with the significance of assuming the mantle as a Black man in modern times. Initially relinquishing the shield to the U.S. government, Sam ultimately reclaimed the title and the shield when they named John Walker the new Captain America. The series concluded with Sam donning a new Captain America costume, solidifying his rightful place as the shield's bearer.
Sam's journey will continue in his first standalone film, Captain America: New World Order, slated to hit theaters in May 2024. This movie marks a pivotal moment for the MCU's legacy characters, as Sam becomes the first to step into an original Avenger's shoes and lead a solo project without the previous actor. Coinciding with this new chapter, leaked photos and videos from the set reveal Anthony Mackie sporting a fresh costume, potentially indicating a departure from the white vibranium suit gifted to Sam by the Wakandans at the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
If Wakanda reclaims its vibranium, there's speculation that they may also reclaim Captain America's shield from Sam, alongside the suit. While this remains conjecture, it's likely that the Captain America shield will play a significant role in the narrative of New World Order, particularly if the storyline delves into Wakanda and its vibranium. Whatever unfolds in the forthcoming MCU film, Captain America's shield is certain to maintain its prominence, carrying forward the enduring legacy that originated in Captain America: The First Avenger.
