We all want to be our like heroes. Some kids want to be famous sports-ball kickers like whatsisname in the red jersey, or drive fast cars like that shoemaker guy in the really fast death rocket. Others like myself, want to grow up to be billionaire orphaned crime-punchers. That’s never going to happen. But at least building an arsenal with which to pretend to fight crime, isn’t out of the question.
Triforce, that purveyor of fine video game collectibles made real and the only company that can toss a grenade into your bank account hopes and dreams, have something special straight from Gotham City. Based on the batsuit model used in Batman: Arkham Origins, they’ve unveiled the cowl of the dark knight, a piece of merchandise that is most likely going to strike fear into the hearts and minds of cowardly and superstitious visitors to your home.
It’s a proper, 1:1 scale replica, that according to Triforce measures in at 26″ H x 23.5″ W x 24.5″ L and weighs 35lbs. That’s a pretty hefty piece altogether, and the price tag clocks in at $850. A big fat thanks to Erwinnnn for alerting me to this page, and making certain that my morning cup of tea had extra tears inside of it.
I’ll never be able to afford it, so I’ll settle for just photoshopping my ugly mug onto a promotional image while I wear one of my own rubber replicas.
Much sexier better.
