Attack on Titan's Official 1/1-Scale 3D Maneuver Gear Can Be Yours — For US$1,000
MOVIC has finally opened pre-orders for the much-anticipated official, 1/1-scale 3D maneuver gear replica from Attack on Titan. Order now, and it can be yours in late January— for 99,800 yen plus tax. That's a total of 107,784 yen or about US$1,000.
What that stack of bills gets you is a 10-kilogram (22-pound) recreation of the iconic hardware, as well as blades and arm cartridges. The main unit is made of ABS plastic, aluminium, silicon, soft foam (with iron inserts), die-cast metal, and polypropylene resin. If you plan on slicing Titans, be forewarned that the blades are made of soft foam (with plastic/die-cast inserts).
So you won't be carving up enemies or swinging from rooftops — but come January, you can be this guy:
Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine announced back last October, a full year ago, that MOVIC would display a prototype of the 3D maneuver gear replica at the "Survey Corps Archives" exhibition that month. The main unit of the final version measures about 37 by 32 by 14 centimeters (15 by 13 by 6 inches), while the blades (with grips) is each about 88 centimeters (35 inches) long. The arm cartridges are each about 71 centimeters (28 inches) long.
