Kubrick Fans Can Now Own Their Very Own HAL 9000 From The Sci Fi Epic: 2001A Space Odyssey

tumblr_mgq1gp3PN61qzdglao1_1280Easily one of the most loved, watched and talked about sci-fi films of all time, Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey captured the minds of people everywhere.  Even 45 years later it is heralded as a classic yet still remains relevant.  One of the many reasons the movie was so popular was the supercomputer HAL (Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer).  Voiced by Douglas Main, his creepy, calm, even toned voice resonates throughout the movie and HAL is even listed as the 13th-greatest film villain in the AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Heroes and Villains.

Screen Shot 2013-01-23 at 11.06.34 AMThe folks at THINKGEEK have ceased HAL’s popularity and come out with a must have for fans of the film.  They have come up with a life size replica of HAL that says 15 different phrases and responds to voice and most IR remotes.  This replica is based on the actual studio blueprints, for exact perfection (right down to the original studio files for the HAL 9000 label). To make it even more realistic the HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica even has a red LED eye.

-f29d_hal_9000_life-size_replica_prop_inuseHead over to THINKGEEK to order yours now.  Now before you go, rushing over there let me warn you, they are currently out of stock AND when they come back IN stock…they cost $499.  I know, I know, pricey but futuristic technology has to come with a substantial price.

  • Batteries: 1 9-volt (included).
  • Weight: approx. 2 lbs.
  • Dimensions: 13.6″ x 4.6″ x 1.125″ (exact to the movie blueprints)
