RubberToe Rayguns: Weapons for the Retro-Space-Age
September 18th, 2011
I’ve always wanted one of those ray-guns that Marvin the Martian had in Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century. While you might not be able to disintegrate a cartoon duck with these prop ray-guns, you’ll still look just as bad-ass as Marvin did (except you won’t have his helmet).
These guns are made by UK propmaker Nicholas Robatto, who also happens to make props and set-pieces for Doctor Who these days. Each weapon is backed by an elaborate back-story and functional description so you know how to use them in the event of an alien attack.
Prices for these prop ray-guns currently range from $375 to $860 (USD), and each one is handmade and sold in a limited edition. They each come with a matching stand and a certificate of authenticity too. You can get the acrylic versions of these ray-guns over on Etsy, but if you really want a special treat, check out RubberToe Rayguns website, where you can special order the Clockwork Vapouriser (the large image at top) made from brass instead of acrylic.
