One of the coolest items in video games history is finally becoming real.

I’m talking about the magical baton from the 2002 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. The people behind the Symphony of the Goddesses tour, which plays symphonic concerts featuring the iconic music from the series, are taking preorders now for a collectible version. It costs $40 and will ship around June.

Zelda merchandise has become more common, especially at retailers like Hot Topic and online stores like ThinkGeek. However, many of the items at those stores focus on Ocarina of Time, the 1998 entry in the series for the Nintendo 64. You can find plenty of Ocarina of Time replicas, but Wind Wakers have been hard to come by until now.

Symphony of the Goddesses has been touring since 2012. It features music from Zelda games like The Wind Waker, Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past, and Twilight Princess. You can check out a schedule of upcoming shows here.
