Repainted Rubie’s 24″ Captain America Shield

Until recently, with the release of the officially licensed Hasbro Marvel Legends 24″ Captain America shield, finding a nice quality and affordable Captain America shield was a tricky task.

You had officially licensed stuff from the cheap end (really cheap) with the Rubies and then at the expensive end (really expensive) with eFX.

Custom Captain America 20″ Figure

This is a 20″ Captain America Titan Force figure, by Hasbro. It started off looking like the classic comic style Captain America and with my repaint, made it look more like the Avengers: Age of Ultron and Civil War suits that Captain America wears.

Aside from the face, everything has been repainted. The navy and brown were Rustoleum spray paints and I also brushed on some Testors enamels for the red and silver.

The figure is pretty good looking unaltered, but a new paint job, or even just some weathering and detailing really makes the figure look better. Hasbro gives you a nice base to work with.
