Rayguns! Kick Ass Rayguns!

Snagged from Boing Boing, I find a new line of 1:1 scale antique styled sci-fi props from Weta Workshop's Designer Greg Broadmore. The Rayguns, or "Dr, Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators" are sweet looking, though likely out of my price range.


Pictured here is the "Goliathon 83 Infinity Beam Projector".

These are thematically similar to the weapons made by Lockwasher whose flick photoset of retro-futuristic weapons can be seen here: Intergalactic self-defense mechanisms.

One would be a fool not to pack something like this on any deep space expedition from the first half of the last century.

Geewhillikers...

You guys are always posting these prop and replica collectibles and saying how much you want them, and I nod and smile and try to be understanding, while at the same time, I just cannot connect to the desire...

Until now.
