And instead they give him 2 extendable bin lids. Wtf? Couldn't they have actually made him another vibranium frisbee?

It really would have been a fantastic opportunity to give him the energy shield considering the ones that the border tribe have.

They didn't even give him real shields. They're completely CGI for some reason.

I'd assume that the reason is because they didn't have a Frisbee made while those were some Wakandan shields/gauntlets that were already in their armory. Though if they had an arm ready for Bucky and Cap is comfortable enough to ask T'challa for help, why wouldn't they have a backup shield just in case?
Yeah I expected them to give him a featureless version of his traditional shield just like in the comics when he took the role of “The Captain”. Missed opportunity for a throw back IMO

Yeah I don't get that decision at all.

Everything Wakanda-related is a mess in the MCU.
Your face looks like I need a beer.

Another good idea. In fact, I kinda imagined them giving him a shield with the avengers A on it.

That was a shield, one that can split into two parts and act as an offensive weapon.

Well now that's a lie.
The difference between Batman and Moon Knight is one has identity issues and the other is Moon Knight.

It may be more accurate to say it's 2 small shields that form a large one. Still, your lying to yourself if you don't think the frisbee style shield had more versatility.

First of all, it's badass and iconic. Secondly, it can be thrown and used as a projectile.

I know what your thinking, the wakanda shield is sharp and stuff. But due to the bulls*** factor of vibranium, the frisbee was just as effective in close range as the wakanda shield was, maybe even more effective.

Also, the frisbee shield made badass noises when it was thrown.
