Breaking Bad‘s Walter White, the meek but brilliant science teacher who became the mass murdering crystal meth drug kingpin of the American Southwest, made for one of the most memorable and compelling characters in television history. Well, now he can be a terrifying and creepy member of your own home, with this super realistic bust of the master criminal also known as Heisenberg.
This life-size piece of Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White, clad in the respectable (and real fabric) shirt of a high school science teacher, but with his shaved head and evil goatee look, comes from Sideshow Collectibles. It is made of resin, and as you can tell by staring into it’s creepy, “highly realistic synthetic” eyes, it is incredibly lifelike (the glasses even come off and fold). That’s because this “hand-finished and hand-painted bust is painstakingly detailed, from even the smallest wrinkles, veins and pores, right down to the hair stubble on Walter’s shaven head.”
Yeesh, the longer you stare at it the more you expect it to ask you what it’s name is. I’m a big Bryan Cranston and Breaking Bad fan, but I also like to sleep at night sure that my possessions won’t come to life and kill me.
All jokes aside, this is obviously a high-end collectible, which is why it lists for the high-end price of $1,399.99. If you pre-order one now they expect them to start shipping later this year, between October and December. Which means you can get yours just in time for Christmas, for that loved one whose Scarface poster just doesn’t have the prestige of an expensive, way-too-real looking Walter White bust that will haunt you.
