It’s the most powerful and brilliant team in the Marvel Universe–The Black Panther, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Mister Fantastic, Namor the Sub-Mariner and The Beast–against an infinite legion of parallel realities.
One of the most memorable villains in cinema history wasn’t even human. The murderously psychotic computer HAL 9000 was listed as the 13th greatest film villain in the AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Heroes and Villains. HAL’s calm, confident voice would both assure you that everything was going according to plan and let you know that you had to die.
“I think you know what the problem is, just as well as I do.”
But as iconic as HAL’s imagery is, there has never been an absolutely authentic replica that fans could display in their own home… until now…
Artifactory’s HAL 9000 replica is composed of CNC-machined aluminum, and is recreated directly from the original 1967 studio blueprints! HAL’s glass “eye” has been replicated in optical-grade glass, copied from the lens used on the original prop!
The replica also features 15 different phrases which can be activated via several user-selectable modes. Production on this incredible replica is strictly limited, so act fast of HAL will be gone forever!
Dimensions (13.6″x4.6″x1″) are identical to the original prop. One (1) 9 volt battery included.
Kotobukiya proudly presents a collaboration between DC Comics and Zarigani Works, a brand new series of JUSTICE LEAGUE X KOREJANAI MINI FIGURES!

The Justice League includes: Superman , Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, and Flash.
Each brightly colored silly figure stands approximately 2 ½ inches tall and comes with a mini-display stand.
