A slew of Fallout 76 collectibles are coming later this year from ThinkGeek

For $150, you can build your own Pip-Boy with the Fallout 76 Pip-Boy Construction Kit, coming later this year from ThinkGeek and Bethesda Softworks.

The kit is available for pre-order now. ThinkGeek (which is owned by GameStop) promises that the kit has more than 250 parts (“in a vegan leather case”) plus the tools necessary to put it together. Fans will be able to customize their own Pip-Boy 2000 Mark 6, the one seen on the protagonist’s wrist at the end of the Fallout 76 trailer shown last month.

The Pip-Boy 2000 Mark 6 is an earlier model than the Pip Boy 3000 Mark 4, which was a premium offered with the Fallout 4 special edition when that launched in 2015. Canonically speaking, the unit is an earlier model (powered by vacuum tubes, even) and may lack some of the functionality the user had with the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy.

There are more Fallout 76 goodies coming from ThinkGeek, too. They include 1:1 scale replicas of the game’s Plasma Rifle, Plasma Pistol, Fusion Core, Sledge Hammer and the Power Fist. Liberty Prime, the mech who saved the day in Fallout 3, gets a collectible statue, as does Dogmeat, the game’s faithful canine companion. Players can also pick up a figurine of the T-51 power armor, a model of the “Fusion Flea” vehicle, and “Vault Girl,” a more lifelike, female representation of the Fallout series’ bobblehead mascot

Fallout 76 is launching Nov. 14 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It is a multiplayer-only adaptation of Fallout’s post-apocalyptic canon, setting the story in the mountains of West Virginia about 20 years after the nuclear attacks that destroy the United States. Bethesda Softworks said yesterday that the game will take place in an open world environment four times larger than the map of Fallout 4.
