Get Ready To Duel With This Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Puzzle Replica

by Riley Hutchins

Yu-Gi-Oh! fans get excited, because you can soon own a legendary piece of the show for your very own. That's right, you can have a shining replica of the Millennium Puzzle around your neck. Anime merchandise stores around Japan have started accepting pre-orders for new exact replicas of two key items from the franchise. Movic Japan has created new zinc alloy replicas of The Millennium Puzzle and the Golden Chest  and they look amazing.

If you are not familiar with the Millennium Puzzle, it is the classic pendant that the main protagonist from the franchise Yugi wore around his neck. The Puzzle was first found in pieces in the Golden Box. The box had two messages written on it, "The person who solves this puzzle will have their wish granted." and "The one who solves me, will recieve my dark knowledge and power." Yugi was the one to receive the puzzle, and therefore could be taken over by the spirit of a pharaoh, becoming Yami Yugi.

Pictures and information about the upcoming collectibles can be seen below:
