Zavvi is remembering Mary Poppins — sorry, Yondu Udonta — by releasing an exclusive magnetic pin replica of his Yaka arrow.
As Marvel’s phase 4 begins and fans look forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, we know there will be an arrow-shaped hole in our hearts where Yondu — one of our favorite honorary fathers — should be. Any Marvel enthusiast can recall the tragic scene from Guardians 2 when Yondu sacrifices himself for Peter Quill. (We’re not crying, you’re crying.)
In addition to his one-liners, Yondu was known for having one of the coolest weapons in the galaxy: an arrow powered by his whistle, which could zip through the sky… and through the hearts of his enemies. Now that the outlaw scavenger has passed on, that Yaka arrow will live on in the MCU through Yondu’s apprentice, Kraglin, and now it can also live on as part of your collection.
While this replica pin — unfortunately — isn’t controlled by musical abilities, everything else remains the same. The arrow is true-to-size, measuring 15 inches long and weighing .24 pounds. This accessory is perfect for any cosplayer, Marvel collector, or Guardians of the Galaxy fanatic who wants to make a bold fashion statement.
However, just like any good bounty in the galaxy, this collectible pin may be hard to obtain, so buyers should snatch it when they can! Zavvi is only releasing 2,000 hand-numbered pieces. Each arrow comes with a certificate of authenticity and is packaged in a display box with Infinity Saga branding on the exterior. Inside, the box is decorated with the whole Guardians crew, including those introduced in the second installment.
The pin, manufactured by SalesOne, is available to preorder now on Zavvi’s website for $44.99 and will officially be released on Oct. 30.
