Update: The contest is over! Thanks to everyone for participating, and congratulations to our randomly-selected winner @equustel. She’ll be walking away (Sky-Lining away?) with the NECA-made Sky-Hook prototype.
We’re collaborating with NECA to create high-quality, life-size models of BioShock Infinite‘s Sky-Hooks, the devices used by citizens of Columbia to travel along the city’s Sky-Lines–and we’re giving one away before they go into production. There will only ever be a few of these early resin-cast prototypes. We’re keeping one.
For your chance to have your very own, just follow the @IrrationalGames Twitter account and retweet the contest announcement. You too could move as fast as the devil through the heavens! (Please do not attempt.)
The Sky-Hook’s design was a collaboration between Irrational’s Robb Waters, Mauricio Tejerina, and Adam Bolton. It was built by NECA, which will also produce the official line of BioShock Infinite models. The Sky-Hook will be shipped in a custom-built box designed by Robb and inspired by the cases used to hold dueling pistols. This unique case won’t ship with the eventual production Sky-Hooks–it’s prototype-exclusive.

warheads | June 7, 2011 4:21 pm
That is so cool so much fine work coming out of this.
borrego | June 7, 2011 4:22 pm
Wow! That is SOLID!
svenderson | June 7, 2011 4:23 pm
I am silenced by sheer amazement… or something.
Retweeted!! Is this US only? Sure hope not…
senyadraquille | June 9, 2011 4:51 pm
no worries it isnt
akito | June 7, 2011 4:23 pm
Mmm smexy, just saw Ken with it on G4’s live feed. It’s HUUGE
inprogress | June 7, 2011 4:24 pm
That is just beautiful. I want one of those. NECA is pretty badass when it comes to making models.
nicholasbianco | June 7, 2011 4:26 pm
This looks simply incredible! This would be an awesome high school graduation gift Irrational 😀 Since my luck is really shitty and I probably won’t win, will they be sold through Neca’s website?
rabbidsl | June 7, 2011 4:29 pm
just saw this on G4, it looks awesome! I want one now.

How do you “retweet the contest announcement”? I don’t use twitter…
knives | June 7, 2011 4:56 pm
Nevermind…figured it out. (Not that I’m gonna win anyway)
lilybanyard-fox | June 7, 2011 4:46 pm
If only there were a way to guarantee winning this thing. Seriously, I’d fight a Big Daddy for a chance at the sky-hook!
nickmerritt | June 7, 2011 4:55 pm
Oh the things I could do in the bedroom with THAT!
Just kidding–or am I?
tiggrain | June 7, 2011 4:55 pm
That sky hook proto was blowing my mind. How much will it be onces you official put it out. You tempted me to signing up with ya’ll because of your sweet Proto. It’s a gotta have like Thor’s Hammer. >^,,^<
nickmerritt | June 7, 2011 4:56 pm
I would take a bare-knuckle gypsy punch for the box alone!

juan29zapata | June 7, 2011 5:29 pm
Absolutely beautiful. I never thought that gaming swag could be that good (aside from the Vigor bottle that is).
evans0305 | June 7, 2011 5:39 pm
That’s an incredible design, especially that grapple mechanism. Already, I retweeted the announcement.
evans0305 | June 7, 2011 6:22 pm
I also want to include that this tool design would be the most realistic for getting around the Sky-Line. Definitely a worthy tool and melee weapon.
joshuaswan | June 7, 2011 6:06 pm
M U S T H A V E ahhhhh!
laforzadimente | June 7, 2011 6:06 pm
Pretty badass, too bad I don’t have twitter
musecuts | June 7, 2011 6:33 pm
Awesome, I’m reminded why I have twitter.
nyokou | June 7, 2011 6:41 pm

mangledrex | June 7, 2011 7:51 pm
Does it come with a change of pants because I need some help
magicmaker | June 7, 2011 7:55 pm
Seriously guys, that’s just not right. I mean you shouldn’t be able to make another man feel like that but it’s just so damn fine.
magicmaker | June 7, 2011 7:59 pm
Oh so I just opened a Twitter account just so I could retweet it and have a shot at that beauty. And your retweet was my first time so do the honorable thing and show me the love.
chewbaccabigsis | June 7, 2011 8:24 pm

felonious | June 7, 2011 8:59 pm

senyadraquille | June 7, 2011 9:38 pm

jub8jub | June 7, 2011 9:54 pm
Cool can’t wait to try it out 😉
step2this | June 7, 2011 9:55 pm
senyadraquille | June 7, 2011 10:01 pm
when it said ” before they go into production” does that mean that your selling the few that will be made, im only asking just incase i dont end up winning, because it would look very nice with my other bioshock collectibles.
chrisredfield | June 7, 2011 10:07 pm
Cool, but I think I will just wait for the production version…
mysterd | June 7, 2011 10:11 pm
Would this gadget possibly come in a Bioshock: Infinite – Collector’s Edition?
cactusclimber | June 15, 2011 4:42 pm
For 300 dollars more maybe! 😀
senyadraquille | June 7, 2011 10:24 pm
to whoever wins it just for future refernce congrats!
ftrapture | June 7, 2011 10:32 pm
Wow this is possibly the most amazing thing I have ever seen, I am a major Bioshock fan and think I would just cry a little if I won this.
felonious | June 7, 2011 10:55 pm
Check out this footage on G4 where Ken is wielding the sky-hook – http://www.g4tv.com/videos/53478/Bioshock-Infinite-E3-Gameplay-Demo/

senyadraquille | June 9, 2011 4:43 pm
i for one am estatic about this thing, i noticed that irratioal games is one of if not THE most generous gaming company i know, lol, like look at that thing, im gonna guess its worth 200dollars MINNIMUM! like wow.
senyadraquille | June 9, 2011 4:44 pm
btw does it actually work, i mean like Ken Levine said it can pop out and be used as a weapon, can this one do it? i doubt it, but im not sure, i already know the hooks unfold though
ramonmarte | June 9, 2011 6:06 pm
i wish i could win one of those
tuntun692 | June 9, 2011 7:29 pm
I would have to put this in a glass case if I won it. Too bad I don’t have a Twitter 🙁
ismell | June 9, 2011 8:46 pm
Hey I just realised that this Sky-Hook is different from the one shown in the first trailer.
Is that an in-the-fiction upgrade, or a timed upgrade within the game, or just a revision in game art assets, or what?
ismell | June 9, 2011 8:48 pm
Actually are the sky-hooks like a guerilla thing in Columbia? Cos I know you’re not supposed to ride the rails, so they must be like an illeagal device in the city right?
Thinking about that it’s weird that it comes in such a fancy box…
brettstenger | June 10, 2011 2:01 am
I want it !!!
knarf | June 10, 2011 5:49 am
