As I’ve grown older, I have become a fan of stealth nerd items–i.e., items that look perfectly normal or classy to a non-nerd, but have a hidden true meaning obvious to any like-minded nerd. Take these Attack on Titan iPhone cases for example.
Each case costs 4,800 yen (approx. USD $45) and comes with the engraved signature of one of series’ characters along with an item that represents the character attached on the phone case’s cover.
The Erwin Smith version comes with his signature bolo tie.
The Eren Yeager version has the key that will open the basement in Eren’s old house–and hopefully reveal the secrets of the titans.
Jean Kirstein‘s version comes with a horse on it.
The Hange Zoë version of the case sports her distinctive glasses.
Finally, Levi‘s case has a tea cup on it–a subtle nod toward his of way of holding the cup when he drinks.
In addition to the iPhone cases, a 7,800 yen (approx. USD $74) wallet with a map of the walled city is also available for preorder.
Pre-orders for these items are available from now until November 27 on SuperGroupies’ official website.
