I was looking at the prices people were paying for Bioshock on ebay and I came across this helmet replica of a Big Daddy. You guys seem to be big into collecting the game figures so I figured I should post this link.

Yeah I know. It's low now but it will probably up to $200 at the end.

It would make a good night-light for a kid, if the parent wants to scare the crap out of them =P

I'm guessing this isn't an official thing though, if it was then it would probably be pulling in more than $50.

If it was the normal Big Daddy I'd be all over it. But since I haven't played the game yet I don't know the significance of this "Rosie" Big Daddy...maybe then it'll change.

I don't know if you read through the listing but it said that it was made by some studio and there are twenty six of them.

There are two types of Big Daddy. Rosie and Bouncer. I haven't come across a living Bouncer yet (aside from the one you see in the demo).

This would be so much cooler if it lit up yellow or red as those are the two colours the glass is in Bioshock.

Yellow for dormant, Red when attacking. Just lighting up blue is wrong and you could buy any sort of old skool diving helmet to do that.

I did read through it, otherwise I would have pointed out that Rosie is from Rosie & Jim, not Bioshock. Still doesn't make it official, it could be a very generous fan or Nightmare Studios are taking advantage of a good game =o

I'd still much rather prefer a full size Big Daddy statue than the helmet of one. And it is still at $50.

If you check the site of the people that made it they've got other costumes etc and none of them are licensed in the slightest.

There's a Gears costume (complete with chainsaw) but no mention of gears because it's completely unlicensed. There's also some costumes that look very much like Storm Troopers and the things from Killzone. Basically it looks like they see something cool and make costumes for it but dont actually say its from the game/film because its completely unlicensed. Just like this helmet (which isn't even on the site).

If you go to the Comissions page there is a picture with a lot of the helmets on =D

In my opinion, if it isn't official then it isn't collectable. If Irrational Games or 2K decided to get a bunch of them made then they would probably sell at greater prices since people would want them more.

I certainly wasn't offended. It's an interesting item and a good find.

I haven't got that far then obviously :p

I've just seen Red and Yellow. In fact I've only faced Rosies so far. When you do start coming up against Bouncers (without spoiling it).

I'm just on my way to the fish market to search for distilled water and something else (cant remember what lol) to try and bring the trees back to life in arcadia
