Captain America is wielding a new shield in Avengers: Infinity War; we’ve seen it in the trailers and at least two fans have already built replicas. We shared a look at this one in late February, and now Replica Prop Forum (RPF) user Futurescape3D has made a version complete with moving parts. You can see how the functioning Wakandan shield works in the above video. They shared a little about how the movement works:
It’s 3D printed with PETG plastic, and we have a track on the underside with a small bar on the moving section that allows the wearer total control over the speed of the movement.
