A Japanese Manufacturer Is Selling A 14kg Megatron Stainless Steel Helmet

Put those neck muscles to the test

As far as pop culture collectibles go, sometimes it feels like we have seen it all. Pop Vinyls, Monopoly sets – what is left to be turned into a dust collector in your home?

Well, why not start leaning into the heavy metal side of things – and I don’t mean the music.

Legit, Japanese casting manufacturer Castem have announced a G1 Megatron Stainless Steel Helmet in celebration of the Transformers 40th Anniversary Celebration – and if you want to rock it on your bonce, you better be ready for the monstrous weight that it carries.

It is sized and scaled to be human sized, but due to its girthy construction method – being that it is made of stainless steel – it weighs 14 colossal kilos, so it may be better suited to a display item.

Besides the weight, the other limiting factor in owning such a piece is the price – a whopping 165,000 Yen which equates to about $1,582.02 Australian Dollars. That, and it’s currently a made-to-order item exclusive to the Japanese market. So, y’know, a few challenges there.

If you are dying to see it in person and just so happen to be travelling internationally, you can always take a squiz at the 40th Anniversary Transformers Exhibition currently being held in Osaka, where the meaty Mega-head is on display. Maybe if you are in the neighbourhood, snap a few photos for me? I’d pay good money to see a human being attempting to wear it.

What do you think of the mighty Megatron helmet? Would it impact your home security insurance? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
