Geek YEN! – Matrix 1/12th scale Armored Personnel Unit

Yen: verb 1. feel a longing or yearning. That’s exactly how we feel about the stuff we love, but, more importantly, it’s really how we feel about the stuff they make out of the stuff we love. Toys, statues, posters, pogs; we love it all, and we WANT it all. It’s Geek Yen!

The Matrix trilogy may not have ended as well as most like, but there’s no denying the sci-fi film franchise has a ton of awesome associated with it. Much of that awesome comes from the futuristic craft of all sort, including both hovercraft and, yes, APUs. The Armored Personnel Unit was a heavy-hitting, machine killing, exo-suit of sorts with one hell of a set of machine guns. This replica of the APU is pristine in its detail, and at 13.5 inches tall it’s a masterpiece. I want it!
