Pip-Boy 2000 MK IV Vault-Tec Limited Edition by The Wand Company

Unless I completely missed it, I believe this is the only new product that launched for the month of March so I think it's fine it gets its own post, right?? 😆 At a glance this is all you'll be receiving: 1 Pip-Boy 2000 MK VI replica in a Vault-Tec variant paint scheme, 1 Holotape, 1 Vault-Tec branded screwdriver, 1 operating manual, and 1 certificate of authenticity all housed inside of a custom branded box. I don't have any personal thoughts to add as I have one of these arriving in the mail soon so I'll save it for that ✌🤓 I think the official product listing information does a great job of covering all the specifics and technical stuff anyways, so it's all added below!


Also in case you missed this release via Bethesda Gear, it's currently available at BigBadToyStore for $179.99 and qualifies for their $4 flat rate shipping! They also ship worldwide, just add it to your cart and select your country to get shipping options 👍 and for anyone wondering or asking if BBTS is ✨ legit ✨ yes they are, I can vouch for them and I've been a customer for like 20 years now LOL so buy from them with confidence!!

ONLY 2,200 WORLDWIDE


This Vault-Tec™ skinned Pip-Boy 2000 Mk VI is a replica model of the pre-war Personal Information Processor (PIP) manufactured by RobCo Industries as an updated version of the Pip-Boy 2000. Designed to be worn on the forearm, this Pip-Boy was the last word in convenience, enabling vault dwellers to keep track of their personal stats and inventory on the go. The Mk VI model was only made available to residents and staff of Vault 76.


Until recently, this replica had only been available as a kit, but recent developments in manufacturing capability have enabled RobCo Industries and Vault-Tec™ Corporation to collaborate on the production of this assembled version. The iconic Vault-Tec™ blue and yellow livery with Vault-Tec™ roundel and vibrant yellow accent piping round the display housing, mark this Pip-Boy out from the traditional version more commonly seen in the Wasteland.


The enjoyment of a replica piece this accurate is increased by its illuminated display panel and glowing vacuum tubes, which, fitted as standard, feature a Malfunction Function™ with an authentic Tap-to-Fix™ action. When illuminated for a period of time, the display and vacuum tubes will start to flicker, simulating the erratic function of this well-used piece of field kit. In the time-honoured tradition of fixing such transient electronic faults, a sharp tap to the top of the display housing unit is all that is normally required to correct this minor malfunction and return the display to its flicker-free function.


This collectible Vault-Tec™ skinned Pip-Boy replica is a strictly limited edition. Only 2,200 units have been manufactured. Each one is marked with its own unique number and comes with a specially designed certificate of authenticity endorsed by The Wand Company.
