This Vault-Tec™ skinned Pip-Boy 2000 Mk VI is a replica model of the pre-war Personal Information Processor (PIP) manufactured by RobCo Industries as an updated version of the Pip-Boy 2000. Designed to be worn on the forearm, this Pip-Boy was the last word in convenience, enabling vault dwellers to keep track of their personal stats and inventory on the go. The Mk VI model was only made available to residents and staff of Vault 76.
Until recently, this replica had only been available as a kit, but recent developments in manufacturing capability have enabled RobCo Industries and Vault-Tec™ Corporation to collaborate on the production of this assembled version. The iconic Vault-Tec™ blue and yellow livery with Vault-Tec™ roundel and vibrant yellow accent piping round the display housing, mark this Pip-Boy out from the traditional version more commonly seen in the Wasteland.
The enjoyment of a replica piece this accurate is increased by its illuminated display panel and glowing vacuum tubes, which, fitted as standard, feature a Malfunction Function™ with an authentic Tap-to-Fix™ action. When illuminated for a period of time, the display and vacuum tubes will start to flicker, simulating the erratic function of this well-used piece of field kit. In the time-honoured tradition of fixing such transient electronic faults, a sharp tap to the top of the display housing unit is all that is normally required to correct this minor malfunction and return the display to its flicker-free function.
This collectible Vault-Tec™ skinned Pip-Boy replica is a strictly limited edition. Only 2,200 units have been manufactured. Each one is marked with its own unique number and comes with a specially designed certificate of authenticity endorsed by The Wand Company.
