Life-Size Talking HAL 9000 Replica

Are you a big fan of the movie 2001? Are you a big enough fan to spend $500 on a Life-Size Talking HAL 9000 Replica? This thing was created from the original movie blueprints.

Pretty cool stuff, especially if your name happens to be Dave. But $500 cool? Only if you’ve got money to burn. Yeah it’s a replica and not a toy, but it seems way overproduced for what it is. I’m sure hardcore sci-fi fans will dig it though.
