Chances are, you probably won't even need to actually use this striking Captain America "Stealth" Shield in a combat situation, but isn't it nice to know you could?

Check out the intoxicating gleam on this highly detailed, 10 pound fiberglass and steel prop, replicated from the precise commando accessory used by the Star-Spangled Avenger in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It's crafted by EFX Collectibles from the actual molds used by the production design department on the Russo Brothers' blockbuster film and is limited to just 250 units. Available now for pre-order HERE for $679 with an expected September delivery, but that's a small price to pay for the shining emblem of eternal glory.

Here's the official description:

At the beginning of Marvel Studio’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Georges Batroc, a French-Algerian mercenary, pirate, and martial artist, and his group of pirates has attacked the Lemurian Star and has taken the technicians and Jasper Sitwell, the field officer, hostage with a ransom of 1.5 billion dollars. The Lemurian Star is a S.H.I.E.L.D. ship designed to launch targeting satellites.

Ninety-three minutes later, Captain America, Black Widow, and Brock Rumlow lead the S.T.R.I.K.E. (Special Tactical Reserve for International Key Emergencies) team to retake command of the Lemurian Star and free the hostages. For this mission, Captain America is dressed in his stealth uniform, which comprised a modified shield. Captain America took his iconic red, white (silver) and blue shield and painted on blue details to transform it into his “Stealth” shield.

Utilizing master patterns cast from the original molds used to make the screen-used prop, EFX’s engineers, model-maker, and artists have produced a faithful recreation of the iconic Shield that Steve Rogers uses in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The paint detail is screen accurate, as well, with a fully painted classic shield underneath the blue “stealth” detail!
