If you hadn’t already guessed, we’re happy to call ourselves self-confessed nerds here at RetroEnt. Yep, whether you want us to recite the first Harry Potter book by memory (okay we can’t actually do that), try out our best Chewbacca impression (rrrr-ghghghghgh!) or dance like Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, we’ll happily do it. While we don’t like to choose between our nerd-loves, we have to admit that we do have a softer spot for the Marvel Universe – which is why we are STOKED to learn that we can now wear our own life-sized Infinity Gauntlet, thanks to the prolific toymaker, Hasbro.
Those of you who are fans of Marvel (which is everyone, right?) will know that the Infinity Gauntlet is one of the most important items to exist in the galaxy. With space to hold the six ‘Infinity Gems’ – the Time Gem, the Space Gem, the Soul Gem, the Reality Gem, the Power Gem and the Mind Gem – this Gauntlet will allow the wearer to encompass the power from all six of the gems to become the most powerful being in the universe. So, of course, it’s no surprise that some of the biggest and baddest names in the Marvel Universe want to get their hands on the gems and the Infinity Gauntlet to overpower their enemies…
Although Thanos is still trying his hardest to score the Infinity Gauntlet to take over the galaxy, it now seems that Marvel geeks like ourselves can get our hands on (or into) a life-sized Gauntlet of our own – and it’s pretty darn cool. This 1:1 sized replica has been created by Hasbro, and allows the wearer to feel the power of the Infinity Gauntlet. This replica includes the six precious gems, as well as articulated fingers that you can use to crush your hypothetical enemies… or just make rude gestures to your friends and family. Either way works for us.
If you fancy getting your hands into this beast, the Hasbro Infinity Gauntlet goes on sale this spring and can be bought for just $99.95 on the Hasbro website. You’ll obviously need one for each hand, as well as a few spares if your friends come round to play Justice League – so your best bet is to just buy ten!
