Damn, Precursor Orbs Are Heavy!

Precursor Orbs, like coins in a Mario game, are the collectible artifacts and currency of the Jak and Daxter universe. Jak has collected thousands of them throughout his 5-game career and Daxter picked up his fair share during his solo PSP adventure. But I don’t know how they managed to carry so many on them at once. Oh, that’s right, I forgot — they, like many video game heroes, have bottomless pouches that magically store items of unlimited size and quantity.

Lucky them, because in real life Precursor Orbs are heavy as lead. OK, maybe not THAT heavy, but this replica Precursor Orb (with accompanying 10th Anniversary stand) I received today from Sony, in promotion of the Jak and Daxter HD trilogy coming to PS3 in February, is a good five pounds and is solid as a rock. I certainly wouldn’t want to lug around more than one in my pockets, let alone hundreds at a time!
