The classic Doom helmet, I need it, but I’m almost broke!

If you thought the life of a nerd is an easy and cheap one, then think again. We have to work extra hard by burning the midnight, refreshing browsers to get exclusive pre-orders in before they run out. 

And then we get to watch our money drain out as it gets transformed into plastic goodies that we mostly do not even get opened! It’s a vicious cycle, and there is hardly much to it except admiring those boxes for all eternity.

At the start of the week, Hasbro’s HasLab revealed The Mandalorian Razor Crestand there was no possible way of me of resisting it, so I gave in and pre-ordered it. Now Bethesda is seducing me with its Doom helmet.

Classic Doom Helmet Collector’s Bundle.

The fact that the helmet’s design is from the first classic game, instead of the newer games, makes it that much harder to resist. The helmet is incredibly detailed in showing how weathered it is from constant use and its damage scars received from battling demons. 

And the bonus perk of the helmet being wearable is just icing on the cake to seal the deal. That would explain why Sal gave up enduring the urge almost immediately and went on his merry way to pre-order it.

The bundle also contains additional goodies. Firstly, the Doom Floppy Disc Pin. Made out of metal and enamel, it’s modelled after the traditional floppy disk and will feature the classic Doom logo on it.

Secondly, a Classic Doom Cover Art Print. The print will be of high quality litho on an acid-free paper, and the image will be of the first cover art of the franchise. It’s a great way to spruce up your room with a demon-killing badass!

The Doom Helmet bundle will cost 140 USD (roughly S$190) and is currently available for pre-order at Bethesda. And I’d suggest making your reservations as quickly as you can because the bundle is a Special Limited Collector’s Edition set that’s limited to only 20,000 worldwide! So get to it!
