Rockstar always seem to know exactly what their fans want when it comes down to creating game merchandise to sell on their Rockstar Warehouse store. They did it for Grand Theft Auto, they did it for Red Dead Redemption (RDR was done very well I must note) and now they have done it for LA Noire! Rockstar have created an awesome new line up of products for us gamers that just want to have the experience of that game a little closer to life.
The first is this 1940’s style shirt that Rockstar are officially calling the ‘L.A. Noire Barking Irons Station Shirt’. Rockstar list this shirt for $79.00/£48.75/€55.21(Current exchange rate) which seems like a lot of money for a shirt, but it really is a pretty well made a cool looking shirt for what its worth. Another thing to note is that this shirt is a cosplayers dream! They wont have to source a look-a-like shirt if they want to be Cole Phelps because Rockstar have got you covered cosplayers! Here’s the official picture and description from Rockstar Warehouse:
This crisp white button-up was custom-designed by Barking Irons in honor of L.A. Noire, inspired by the look of a keen investigative professional in the 1940s. Some of you may recall Barking Irons’ craftsmanship from the Red Dead flannels last year; this year, they bring the luxury woven spin that they’re known for to the L.A. Noire collection.
High-quality attention to detail can be found in its myriad features:
-Hidden side seam pockets
-Designed notepad pocket with styled stitch and pen slot
-Bicep button to secure rolled up sleeves
-Mother of Pearl buttons
-Back sleeve vent
-L.A. Noire logo custom label on side seam
-Refashioned L.A. Noire and Rockstar inner label
The next item is the torch used by Cole Phelps and his colleagues at the LAPD. What Rockstar are calling the ‘L.A. Noire Right Angle Flashlight’ is yet another item perfect for cosplayers, but also for those among us who just want something cool to remember the awesome time we had playing LA Noire. Again here is the official image and description use on the Rockstar Warehouse
A descendant of the original Fulton M-122D flashlight introduced in 1944, the Fulton MX-991/U is the current standard issue flashlight for the US Army, uses two D-cell batteries (not included), and has a screw-cap compartment that holds a spare bulb and two colored lenses – red and dark blue. The switch guard has precision laser engraving of the Rockstar logo on one side, and the L.A. Noire logo on the other.
This is a pretty cool looking item which will set you back $25.00/£15.42/€17.47 (Current exchange) which is a damn sight more affordable than the shirt, but just as awesome.
Finally Rockstar listed the item I’ve personally wanted since the game began. The notebook used by Cole Phelps in LA Noire! I wanted this book so bad I actually went to the trouble of ordering a similar looking notebook from Amazon but now my dreams have come true! Rockstar officially call this the ‘L.A. Noire Notebook and Pencil Set’ and yes as the name suggests it comes with a set of 5 pencils that are the very same pencils used by Cole Phelps in LA Noire! This item is a must have for me and I am putting an order in ASAP! Here is the final image and description from the Warehouse:
Keep tabs on your own “Persons of Interest” in the L.A. Noire official Notebook. Each set comes with a L.A. Noire branded notebook, and specially made pencil case (five pencils included), with L.A. Noire branding on the top, and the Rockstar Games logo on the bottom.
This item will cost you $20.00/£12.95/€14.67 of your hard earned cash which is the most affordable and awesome item of the 3 in my opinion. So it seems Rockstar have hit the nail on the head once again for not only bringing great DLC to their games, but also excellent physical content that we as gamers can hold with our own hands, and to a person who loves Rockstar Games as much as I do, that’s just awesome. So then Playstationer.net staff, you had better watch out or I’ll have to put you down in my LA Noire Notebook!
