Next in line in my crazed obsession with movie weapon replica’s comes a bloody, junky piece worthy of a mass murderer… The machete of Jason Voorhies from the new Friday the 13th reboot. From the Lord of the Rings weapons to the Star Wars Lightsabres all the way to 300‘s full battle attire, the big people have found a way to make a little extra cash off these films.
This is the weapon of choice for our Hockey masked hero, from a straight shot up to the hilt, to a nice “Thunk” into a kid’s cranium. It was also the weapon used to decapitate his deranged mama. Described by BUDK with a great and immediate description “Each blade is aged to appear rusted and bloody“. Can we ask for anything more??? Actually we can….
I am making a hypothesis that we will get the full movie quality Nightmare On Elm Street glove of Freddy Krueger. To coincide with the reboot of the original, they gave the glove a little retooling and tweaking for the the new film, so selling a replica glove will be a fanboy’s dream…Something dangerous to do around Elm Street. All the gloves available now are handmade fanfare or plastic, even some with false edges, so i am making a NerdBastard’s gentleman’s bet.
But it all begins here with the release of the the Friday the 13th Machete. A great step in the right direction for horror fans as well as avid movie rep collectors (like myself).
