Golden Ticket Contest

HAL 9000 AE-35 Card Set / Master Replicas Golden Ticket Contest/Rules

"… I’ve just picked up a fault in the AE-35 unit. It’s going to go one hundred percent failure within seventy-two hours…"

In the 1968 film 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, with those calmly spoken yet ominous words, the HAL 9000 computer sets into motion catastrophic events: a series of brutal murders that ultimately lead to an unforgettable, kaleidoscopic trip “Beyond The Infinite.”

MASTER REPLICAS is proud to offer, for the first time anywhere on planet Earth, a set of officially-licensed HAL 9000 AE-35 data cards.

This data card appears in the film when astronaut Dave Bowman asks HAL to provide the hard copy on the predicted fault in the AE-35 antenna-pointing unit.
Your set of five cards comes in a beautiful, lithographed collector’s tin, officially licensed by Warner Bros.

Each HAL 9000 AE-35 Card Set is meticulously manufactured using a precision-machined, custom steel die to replicate the 1960s-era computer programming card used for the original prop.  Each card measures approximately 3 by 5 inches, and is professionally printed on film-accurate heavy cardstock.

The HAL 9000 COLLECTORS TIN with AE-35 Card Set is offered in a limited-edition of only 2,500. The sets are individually numbered and will be available for purchase on, the Master Replicas eBay Store, various retailers,  and Etsy. Once they sell out, NO more will ever be produced! 
The HAL 9000 COLLECTORS TIN with AE-35 Card Set retails for $21.95 and is in-stock and shipping NOW!

And just when you think this offer couldn’t possibly get any better -- IT DOES!
We will be inserting a limited number of “mini-HAL” 16GB USB flash drives into random, sealed tins. So, in addition to your AE-35 card set, you could also be receiving a free sixth-scale HAL 9000 flash drive worth $30! Fifty lucky customers will win one of these flash drives as a special surprise bonus and a “thank you” for supporting Master Replicas!



We’re also offering five lucky Space Odyssey fans chances to win great prizes!


Somewhere inside the extremely-limited edition of 2,500 tins, we’ve placed GOLDEN TICKETS. With every purchase of a HAL 9000 COLLECTORS TIN with AE-35 Card Set, you have a chance to find a GOLDEN TICKET waiting for you inside. 

So if you’re lucky enough to find one of the Golden Tickets inside your HAL 9000 AE-35 Collectors Tin (or by entering on the MRG website) what do you win?
