I’m not going to lie to you: Some days, I just want to push the reset button on everything. When the world gets too stupid, when crap hits the fan or when I stub my toe on the corner of a table (bastard does it on purpose I swear), I kind of just wish that I could control all of reality with a single thought and reshape it to suit my whims. Like having entire groups of people who decide to clog up shopping mall hallways by walking next to one another flung into orbit.
Unfortunately, the chances of that happening are slim to none. What there is however, is the illusion of being an almighty god amongst men with a kickass replica of the Infinity Gauntlet. Which toy manufacturer Hasbro has done, as if they were reading my brain with the Mind Stone. HMMMMMM. Here’s a look at the replica, with the official description of it:
Harness the power of the universe with this 1:1 full-scale INFINITY GAUNTLET! Measuring 19.5 inches long, this collectible role play gauntlet features premium sculpting and articulated fingers that can be clenched into a fist. Includes electronic light and sound effects that illuminate all six Infinity Stones when the gauntlet is activated.
I think the only problem I have with this Infinity Gauntlet, besides the fact it sadly can’t be used to hurl an entire team of Avengers into the sun should they oppose my glorious reign, is that it probably won’t fit my tiny tiny hands. Hell, I doubt the damn replica would even fit my head if I chose to wore it has the Infinity Fedora.
Still, how cool does that look? Full articulation, light-up Infinity Stones and it looks sturdier than Thor’s helmet Mjolnir. It will cost a pretty penny though, as the US retail price for it will set you back $100 in total. Expect to see a lot more cool toys this weekend, when the Toy Fair convention kicks off. Hopefully Thanos doesn’t gate-crash the event to become a god who is worthy of courting Death herself.
