If you are a fan of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, or if you are just like bearded wizards and staffs, have I got a product for you. ThinkGeek has unveiled a new full-size replica staff just like the one Gandalf uses in the latest film.
The staff is a licensed replica from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The staff weighs in at a hefty six pounds and measures 73-inches tall. It’s 1.5-inches in diameter where you grip it and 3.5-inches in diameter at the top. At its tip, it has a glowing “stone” set in knurled faux wood.
The staff ships in three pieces that have to be assembled, though it does include wood grained screw hole covers to keep the real wood look going. It’s made from a polyresin material and has LED lights, powered by three AAA batteries. The staff is available now for $159.99(USD).
It would be perfect for a teacher. They could stand at the front of their classroom, smack the staff on the ground and yell “You Shall Not Pass!”
