Even I can’t believe I’m saying this, but GameStop is apparently selling a real, functioning Assassin’s Creed II gauntlet—in public stores, to anyone with 40 bucks and a fetish for wrist-mounted blades. It’s both incredibly awesome, and (in my professional opinion) mind-blowingly stupid.

Inside Gaming Daily spotted it over at GameStop’s online store, where it’s going to release on October 30, 2012.

Frighteningly, it’s got all the features of the real (fake) video game weapon, too. At least it’s plastic instead of metal:

  • Spring Loaded Action
  • Highly Detailed Replica of Ezio Auditore’s Armored Vambrace
  • Adjustable Buckle and Velcro Straps
  • Locking Safety Mechanism
  • Extends to over 15″ in length
  • Made of PVC and ABS plastics
  • Closed Box Packaging

Huh. That’s just in time for Halloween! At least now I know to avoid any of you nutcases wearing a big white Assassin’s Cloak costume that night—and every single gaming convention afterward. Actually, nevermind. I’m just going to stay inside forever.
