Halloween is less than two weeks away—even sooner, if you intend to celebrate the weekend before. Superhero costumes have become more popular than princesses, which is good news for Marvel fans.

But cheap, flimsy masks and cardboard shields don’t do the fandom justice. If you’d prefer something that’s so well-made, you can display it year-round, consider Hasbro’s Marvel Legends collection, which is currently 20 percent off on Amazon.

You can choose between Iron Man’s mask and Captain America’s shield, both of which are 1:1 full-scale replicas of the MCU versions. 

The electronic mask is really more of a helmet, with a detachable faceplate, sound effects, and LED lights that illuminate the eyes. Cap’s shield is secured to your arm with faux-leather straps and made of layered, hard plastic, as vibranium is pretty hard to come by. Both have a professional finish that make them look like the real deal. Reviewers claim the props are impressively sturdy.

Normally priced at $100, you can get the helmet or shield on sale for $79.99 for a limited time. Cosplayers know that these kinds of accessories can get extremely pricey. A metal replica of Cap’s shield can bump the cost anywhere from $280 to as high as $1600. For a costume piece that doubles as nice display, it’s well worth it for any fan.
