(note: final design may differ)

The wait is almost over. After being teased last June, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association’s Master Chief Motorcycle Helmet is almost ready to be released. This limited edition helmet is fully functional, DOT approved, and now available for preorder… Take a look at the images and you’ll see that the NECA painstakingly recreated nearly every detail of Master Chief’s helmet. There’s no doubt if you strap this helmet on and hit the road that you’re going to turn some heads. It’s that ridiculously awesome. When you’re not riding it’ll look just as good sitting on a display shelf. It really looks like a piece of art.

The helmet has just gone up for preorder at a retail price of $499.99 and some retailers are already sold out. It’s generally being sold at boutique toy stores, but GameStop is also accepting preorders. The only catch is that the gaming giant is charging a $25 premium for it. It’s slated to be released this summer.
