By |2012-10-19T15:32:00+00:00October 19th, 2012|Categories: Blood Angels, Cosplay, Space Marines, Warhammer 40k|

Well it’s that time of year again, you know the one where we all dress up in costumes and run around causing mayhem, and/or enjoying a beverage or two at the same time.

As a 40k hobbyist what could be better than being a Space Marine for Halloween?!! For me hanging out with Brittney Spears is a close second, but Space Marine Armor is more attainable I think (at least for me).

Well now you have the chance to live the dream, and be a Space Marine for Halloween.  I have, right now, up for auction my Space Marine Power Armor Costume that is 100% fully wearable and also very bad ass (IMHO).

This creation was passed down to me (for a slight fee of course) by none other that top level player Paul Murphy himself, who pimped this thing and got all the ladies at DragonCon in Atlanta.  I had some fun with it myself (won some free drinks at many a costume contest) and had it displayed in my store FTW Games for a hot minute, but now it’s time to go….

The suit itself is pretty sturdy, and is made out of fiberglass with a lightweight core. Many an hour was put into customizing the armor with chapter symbols, purity seals and of course grim dark bones!

I wont lie wearing this thing was some of the funnest times I’ve ever had, and I’d really like so see it go to a good home!

So check out the link below for the official auction page, for your chance to win the dream!

From Spikey Bits eBay:

Now is your chance to LIVE the Warhammer 40k hobby with your very own suit of Space Marine Power Armor. Clad in the colors of the Blood Angels Death Company no foe shall stand in your path this Halloween!  This suit of armor is 100% wearable, and comes with the weapons of a Space Marine, a Bolt Pistol and Power Sword!  It can also makes great display piece, if assembled between uses.

This suit is made from a ton of different elements, all durable and able to support the weight of a non-Astartes human.  Besides the obvious bulk, movement is actually not that bad, however running after the enemies of the Imperium is not recommended.

Everything to help you live the dream is here, Purity Seals, Chapter icons, authentic styled weapons, and more.

This is a one of a kind item the likes of which are rarely ever seen on eBay.

Some quick highlights of why you should buy this suit of armor

  • It’s a suit of Space Marine style armor, that you can wear.
  • You get a power sword and bolt pistol, that’s super fun even without the armor!
  • It’s so big you have to walk sideways though doors, and see out of the mouth grill of the helmet.
  • It took chapter artisans over 100 hours to make this thing, and now it can be yours. 
  • But seriously though it’s a suit of Space Marine armor that you can wear, what more do I have to say….

Things you should know (if you are serious about buying)….

  • This is not a toy. It’s made out of a lot of big boy parts that require big boy know-how to maintain. You need to be handy with tools, epoxy, glues, and paint to really give this home it deserves (and keep it in working order).
  • You could also seriously injure and or kill a person if you attack them with your sword or the armor itself. Conversely, well this armor is not designed to deflect impacts, so don’t let people punch and or shoot you with things. BE RESPONSIBLE LIKE SPIDER MAN!
  • Returns are not accepted on this item, period. It’s exactly as I described it (full of awesome), so don’t even think about buying this for Halloween and then returning it. No sir, the Emperor would not be pleased.
  • This auction ends on Oct 22. Halloween is 9 days later, that why I have the pay now option enabled if you use the buy it now, so I can have time to ship this to you, and you can have time to affect any repairs and learn how to suit up and move in this thing. It will ship Fed Ex Ground insured, and is extremely heavy and over sized.
  • Fully assembled the armor weighs 160 lbs, and was designed to accommodate a 6’2″ 200lb male occupant. If your physique varies greatly from that I would suggest not buying it to wear.
  • You will need help taking the costume on and off.
  • There are no instructions for assembly, sorry. But it’s really not too hard to figure out, and you can email me for help.
  • You can make a stand out of wood, or composite materials to store the armor on between patrols, no stands are included with this item.
  • It’s likely that some damage will occur in shipping no mater how carefully this item is packed. Please allow for time to fix any damages, and touch up paintings that may be needed before Halloween! We are not responsible for you not being able to fix basic structural problems arising from and minor damage this may/will receive from transit.  Seriously folks this is A SUIT OF ARMOR, your 16 year old kid is not going to be able to deal this thing. It’s for an adult that’s mechanically inclined and handy with a tool or two. (see above).  
  • Feel Free to pick up this item locally in Richmond Virginia, and save on the shipping cost.
  • The reserve price s a fraction of the buy it now price. I only put a BIN in case some REALLY wanted this thing for Halloween!

Someone is going to be a Space Marine this Halloween, will it be to you? Bid now!

Happy (early) Halloween guys- MBG
