It's the end of an era. It took 10 years for the Avengers movieverse to finally come to a conclusion. And while the Avengers will live on—albeit in separate spin-offs—it will never be the same ever again. Unless of course, someone out there decides to reboot the entire movieverse (we feel you, X-Men fans) and retcons everything that has happened. But until then, we're stuck with the events of the Endgame.
It's been two weeks since the worldwide release of Avengers: Endgame, but we understand how some of you (why though?) might not have had the time to watch it yet. So yeah, no spoilers here.
What better way is there to mark the end of a cinematic franchise than indulge in some memorabilia? And we can't think of something more fitting than an actually wearable replica of the Mark 47 XLVII suit. If you're somewhat unfamiliar with this particular version of the Iron Man armour, it was last seen in the Spider-Man: Homecoming movie and is Tony Stark's 47th creation.

Created by buyFullBodyArmors.com, the made-to-measure replica of the Iron Man Mark 47 XLVII is fully functional, with actual moving mechanical parts. Sure, you can't fire repulsor blasts or fly or even hover in it, but this beats that tacky excuse for an Iron Man costume you'd get at any costume store.
There's a whole lot of engineering behind creating the costume, as one would imagine. So it's no surprise that the suit comes with a pretty hefty price tag: approximately SGD11,022 for the full package. Yet, for something that's as iconic and—pardon the pun—marvellous as the Iron Man armour, this seems like a steal, really. The fact that you can actually slip into your very own armour and look like a playboy billionaire whenever you want to? Priceless.
But not all of us can be heroes, of course. If SGD11,022 on an armour is not something you'd want to remember the Avengers franchise with, here are some other options the same amount of money could get you.
Six Captain America 75th Anniversary metal shields (approximately SGD1,800 each via Amazon)
Shield yourself from adult responsibilities, Internet trolls or the next ugly sneaker drop. This might not be made from adamantium, but it is specially marked in honour of Captain America's 75th anniversary. And also, it's a shiny, metal shield.
Eight 1:1 scale life-size Infinity Gauntlet replicas (approximately SGD1,266 each via Sideshow)
You know what they say about men with big gauntlets, right? Nothing. No one ever says anything about them, only because they get snapped into oblivion. You can't wear this particular replica though, so it'll never end up in the wrong hands.
41 Stormbreakers (approximately SGD263 each via Fire & Steel)
One doesn't have to be worthy to wield Stormbreaker. And with 41 life-size replicas of it, one can hardly miss the head.
90 Kimoyo bead bracelets by RockLove (approximately SGD122.42 each via Marvel)
We've seen so many iterations of the embroidered civilian outfits worn by Black Panther in the movie (especially during last year's Eid celebrations). But it's time to get on the Kimoyo bead bracelets. They're practical, stylish and is as functional as any another style accessory.
95 Eye of Agamotto replica necklaces (approximately SGD116 each via Amazon)
If Doctor Strange had 95 of these in the movie, he wouldn't have had to go through the pain of seeing through 14,000,605 different outcomes by himself. But then again, there's only one Time Stone so…
