Handle with care: Replica Dead Space 2 Plasma Cutters

Flowers are overrated. And jewelry? So cliché. This Valentine's Day, if you truly want to impress the videogame vixen on your list, the only gift that will do the job is a romantic, life-sized, battery operatedDead Space Plasma Cutter replica.

Available now for pre-order at Entertainment Earth, the Dead Space 2 Isaac Clarke Plasma Cutter Full Size Replica is a spot-on copy of its video game counterpart, except with 3-blast spotlights in lieu of searing plasma energy and make-believe danger in lieu of actual, mind-shattering Necromorph terror. It also comes in a displayable carrying case, which is great since at $240 a pop, you're going to want to protect your investment.

The actual item won't be ready to ship until March 2011, but we've included a picture of it to cut out and put in your V-Day card as a placeholder. After all, nothing says “I love you” to non-gaming spouses like fake sc-fi weaponry. Right? Right?! Oh god, I've made a terrible mistake...
