Own a M-77 Paladin Replica Handgun from Mass Effect
BioWare’s online store is now stocking guns—not real ones, mind you, but replica firearms based on the Mass Effect series. The latest planned release is a replica pistol called the M-77 Paladin, better known as Shepard’s trusty sidearm.
The handgun will have a limited release of 200 units worldwide, so fans of the series are urged to snatch them up before they’re out of stock. To order one, you’ll have to place a deposit of $200.00 on the BioWare online store here. The full price for the replica is $400, not including shipping, handling, and taxes.
The weapon, seen above and below, is sculpted and painted by the artisans at TriForce. It’s a full-scale replica and referred to by its developers as the “most authentic representation of this weapon available on the market.” Each unit is hand-finished and hand-painted, which explains why it costs so much. The gun is heavy, weighing a full 7 pounds.
BioWare warns that while they are able to ship the gun anywhere in the world, it may be confiscated by customs due to the nature of it being a gun and all.
