    Default Captain America Shield

    I've seen the FactoryX replica. Is there any others out there??? A 1940s version perhaps???

    Museum Replicas/Windlass Studios is coming out with both the 1940s 1:1 and the Modern 1:1 Captain America shields. The Modern is supposed to be 2 inches bigger in diameter than the Factory X. There are sites already preordering but pics are supposed to be released next month officially.

    There was a guy who made custom shields for less than half the price on Ebay. They looked professionally made....on par with Factory X. If you're looking to save some moolah, I'd def. go with a custom job. What was cool about the home-made product was the fact that you could wear the shield on your back if you so desired.

    I passed on it at my LCS a few years ago and have been regretting it ever since especially since Graphitti Designs no longer handles Marvel. There has been a flood of "costume" shirts like Iron Man, Spider-Man, etc but they are not of the same quality.

    I disagree. I've seen these (below) in person and they are awesome and yes I am a T-Shirt afficionado.

    These have the muscles shaded onto them which to me makes them seem cheesy and little kiddish. I liked the straight costume designs much more.

    Trust me they don't, they look much better than these drawings, I wouldn't wear a cheesy shirt, but I'd wear the hell outta these.

    The stripes put me off the Cap one...they don't seem to go all the way round...

    Do any of those patterns go on the back too?
