The Summer Games are officially underway and collectors are busy grabbing every pin and plush doll they can get their hands on. However, the crown jewel of collectibles from Beijing has to be these official Olympic torch replicas. The IOC has granted a limited edition 200,000 run of the torches which have also been certified by the Beijing Notary Office. The torch itself is constructed out of leftover steel from the “Birds Nest” while the base is carved from crystal and features a laser-printed line map that illustrates the route of the controversial torch relay. An additional image is available after the break.
