Be Magic Cyclops or just play him on Halloween with a special, limited run of Magic costumes

If you've ever thought yourself a worthy successor to the Magic Cyclops throne, this Halloween might be your chance to give it shot for a day. For $15, you can order the official Magic Cyclops costume kit, which comes complete with sunglasses, a custom screened headband, fake British accent and air guitar. The usual cut-off shirt or denim jacket isn't included, though.

The kits are part of an incredibly small run of just ten, because, as Magic puts it, he doesn't want too many people running around as Magic Cyclops at once. We're going to go out on a limb here and guess this might have a little something to do with the Roboclops fiasco a couple months back, where Magic was supposedly throwing in the towel for greener pastures. Perhaps this is merely a means to find a new heir to the throne.

Naturally, you'll be able to put your own spin on the outfit as a whole. Think of it as dressing up as an alternate reality Magic Cyclops -- say, perhaps, a "Bizarro Cyclops" who walks the earth with buff arms and short cropped hair and helps little old ladies cross the street. Or maybe you can try your hand as "Magic Boy," where you can live out the adventures of a pre-pubescent Magic trying to find his place in the world. And, of course, it just wouldn't be Halloween without a "Sexy Cyclops."
