Got an extra $7000 lying around? (Doomguy statue)

Some say it's haunted, others say it's cursed. 

 

In the dead of night, some say that if you listen to the Space Marine replica really closely, you can hear the sounds of Jace Hall being choked out by John Carmack.

Will they let me pay this off in increments? I'll have seven grand, eventually, over the next few years.

 

I used to have a few life-sized statues in the living room, but I kinda destroyed them with a baseball bat or sword, depending on what I could get my hands on first, when I woke up in the middle of the night to take a leak and my house was full of monsters and ninjas and shit.

 

I need a replacement statue.

Supposedly it's a ploy by Marty Stratton, he'll slip into the Doom Slayer unit, which is really a suit he just wears and pretends to be a statue. Once he's in your home he'll raid your fridge in the dead of night and make you think your home is haunted.

If I get my hands on $5,500 before it gets sold, I'll buy it. Would be great if it was a statue of original Doomguy from the original Doom cover art in his kicking ass pose.

Sadly, I don't have much space and money to buy that guy, unless I would sell my body parts and my room mates, but it's not possible and I'm not that bad.

Just chug alcohol and watch Grey's Anatomy with scalpel in hand, it's not that hard, you might forget in the morning but at least it will be over with kind of like drunk dinner

Bethesda is probably pulling an EA and shutting down the studio.

If that ends up happening, I would be mad except for the fact that id wasn't really id for a long time.

I do yes. I thought about investing it on a game developer... turns out they just wanted "donations" rather than to give out shares.

 

$7,000 for a statue would be well worth it, but I've had some bad experiences on eBay. :-)

 

Perhaps a video game museum would enjoy it.

Thinking about just wearing my own Doomguy costume and drinking loads of embalming fluid, if someone wants to come pick up my hardened corpse after the fact it would be way cheaper than $7,000.

 

Seriously though, if I had thousands to throw around, I might just get this. It certainly looks awesome.

I think the Trojan Marty theory is more believable TBH

This statue is from their Frankfurt, Germany office.

It's a duplicate of the statue in their lobby at the Richardson, TX office... which I believe that one is not for sale.
