Though we’ve not got into Fallout personally here at Coolector HQ (purely through a lack of time, as it does look excellent), we’re well aware of its popularity throughout the gaming community and that’s why we’re in little doubt that this Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Construction Kit from Think Geek is going to prove a mighty popular purchase over the next few months as it coincides with the buzz surrounding the newly announced Fallout 76 game.
The Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Construction Kit does, as the name suggests, take its design inspiration from the Pip-Boy Model 2000 Mark VI from Fallout 76. It boasts well over 150 parts that you can put together like a true Wastelander from the game and the finished product has a distinctly striking aesthetic to say the least. If you love all things Fallout, this will definitely be for you and you can pick one up for just $150 over at Think Geek.
There are few games out there that have such a fervent following as Fallout, it its various different iterations, and products like this typically fly off the shelves, so you’ll need to move quickly if you want to get your hands on one of these Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Construction Kit from Think Geek. It will let fans build their own full-size wearable replica of the much loved Pip-Boy 2000 Mark VI which is to be featured in Fallout 76. This cracking piece from Think Geek has over 150 precision parts all housed in a vegan leather case, alongside all the tools that you’ll require to assemble it.
The Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Construction Kit comes replete with a completely in-world instruction manual, which has been joined by wonderfully finished parts, and simple construction – although it’s fair to say that building it is half the fun of owning this superbly unique and much sought after collectible item from Think Geek. It is one of those pieces that will really resonate with Fallout fans and collectors alike and the price tag of $150 seems reasonable for such an intricately designed creation.
This officially licensed piece of Fallout 76 merchandise is made in conjunction with The Wand Company and takes its lead and design inspiration from Bethesda’s (the game’s creators) initial concept sketches and the in-game 3D model to create an accurate a representation as possible. It has spring-loaded buttons which are designed to press, the knobs turn, the radio dial works, and the holotape player opens to eject the holotape so there is a true sense of realism to the finished product.
A Collector’s Item
If you like to collect cool items like this, the Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Construction Kit from Think Geek is likely to become one of the centrepieces of your collection.
