Could you be the next Original Starla?
The Guilty Gear franchise is renowned for its bizarre arsenal of stylish weaponry, from Faust’s 10-foot scalpel to Ino’s satanic shredder, but perhaps one of the most ingenious tools belongs to the delightful young bounty hunter Bridget, in the form of her trick-shot-tastic Bullet Yo-Yo.
And, if you fancy taking an eye or two out yourself, then hobby crafter SpinGear has you covered, as the Japanese yo-yo specialist is now taking pre-orders on an exceptionally cool-looking replica of Bridget’s weapon of choice. The “Full Metal Bridget Mini Yo-Yo” is an authentic (if smaller) replica of our girl’s face-flicker, faithfully recreating the six-shooter style of its casing and cast in solid metal.

So if you fancy picking one up, hurting yourself, and realizing you’re just as terrible with the yo-yo now as you were with that Coca-Cola one in 1991, then head on over to the official YOYOSHOP SPINGEAR website, where you can pre-order the Full Metal Bridget Yo-Yo for ¥44,000 or… erm… $330 USD… Well, if that seems a little on the pricey side for you, then a far simpler design is also expected in January, priced at a somewhat cheaper ¥4,400, or $32.
“We understand pre-order expensive yoyo feels little scary.” explains the website. Yer-darn-tootin’. But, hey, you can’t put a price on knocking mum’s favorite vase off the mantle.
Guilty Gear Strive is available now on PlayStation and PC platforms. An Xbox port arrives spring 2023.
