PUBG 1:1 Foam Frying Pan Won’t Stop Bullets or Cook Bacon

I’d assume if you found yourself on an island packed with a hundred other people all bent on killing you so they can survive that you would take whatever armor you can get. This is why I have no problem with the infamous bulletproof frying pan that people wear in the game PUBG. I’d wrap myself in tin foil and those nearly unopenable packages they put Slim Jims in if that was all I had.

Cosplayers or PUBG fans that wanting their own frying pan, but don’t want the weight of a real one can get this officially-licensed full-scale (~14″) foam frying pan replica.

Since its made from foam, it weighs practically nothing, but you can’t cook in it or deflect bullets with it, mind you. It also costs $29.99 and you can get a real frying pan for less. But a real one isn’t stamped with that big PUBG logo in the middle, right?

ThinkGeek will be peddling this fake frying pan come the holiday season. You can pre-order yours now so you don’t forget to buy gifts for the game on your list.
