If you aren’t familiar with the Terrible Shotgun, it has the second highest damage of all the weapons in the Small Guns category in Fallout 3. It also has a larger spread than normal shotguns. It is most effective in close-quarters.
We finally have more details on the extremely faithful Portal turret replica that Valve showed off last week. It turns out that it was commissioned by Valve from Weta Workshop, the award-winning special effects, design and prop makers known for their work in The Lord of the Rings.
…by different I mean it looks exactly the same as the famous robot from Portal 2. An achingly short video of the replica was posted at Valve’s Facebook account, with no further details provided other than an acknowledgement from the Valve Store Facebook account, which said “Hello friend.”
Damn. We see plenty of amazing things here at Technabob, but this has to be the best LEGO ship in the universe. This amazing reproduction of Serenity in LEGO bricks measures 7 feet-long. It’s also 135 pounds, is made of 70,000 bricks, and it took 475 hours (spread over 21 months) to complete.
Prop maker and hobbyist Mike Senna has been working on a remote-controlled, life-size replica of Disney-Pixar‘s WALL-E since 2010. It is now complete and we have a real, functional WALL-E on our planet.
Minecraft players are experts at pulling off what I call the Reverse Field of Dreams: “If you come, they will build it.” Thus the existence of WesterosCraft – a Minecraft server that contains a replica of the fictional continent Westeros – should surprise no one.
The much hyped not-Alien-prequel Prometheus met with mixed reviews from critics and moviegoers. But I think we can all agree that this LEGO version of the titular ship made by Andrew Lee scores a solid 8 space tomatoes.
So you’ve managed to replicate the replica weapons made by Harrison Krix aka Volpin Props. Time to defend yourself with some armor, particularly the Ancient Nord/Draugr Helmet from Skyrim. This replica is of the female version, but even if you’re a man that doesn’t really matter because look:
The chainsaw-equipped Lancer rifle from Gears of War is a favorite among prop makers, but Ryan Palsen and his wife Dena – known together as Kronos Props – just put another weapon from the series in the spotlight.
This beauty combines two of our favorite passions, LEGO and Back To The Future. This is a made to scale LEGO DeLorean. It’s j
ust a 1:15 scale model of the real thing, so it isn’t large, but it is impressive.
Mass Effect certainly inspires some of the best replicas and cosplay I’ve ever seen. Here’s another winner from Chris Myles, a replica of the Omni-tool, the coolest looking computer in the galaxy. It even has the Omni Blade enhancement that debuted in Mass Effect 3.
Remember J.J. Abrams’ movie Super 8 that came out last summer? I thought it was a great popcorn flick, and really captured the feel of those late 1970s/early 1980s science fiction movies like Close Encounters and E.T.
It’s shocking, I know – the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft was actually built by humans. I’m talking about the scale model of the Harry Potter’s alma mater, which was built in 2001 and used in all of the Harry Potter films.
The Neuralyzer is one of the most powerful gadgets in science fiction, able to erase memories in a flash. So I guess it’s a good thing that Factory Entertainment’s 1:1 scale replica of the Men In Black’s signature tool doesn’t actually work, unless you’re looking to blind someone temporarily.
Proof that even robotic suits have a corpse: a dismantled Iron Man Mk. II suit. I’m sure most of you who’ve seen Iron Man 2 can still remember the scene where James Rhodes (played by Don Cheadle) took one of Tony Stark’s armor to a military base and tore it down to see how it works.
The last time we talked about a replica gun from Portal, the thing was made by the bad-ass video game weapon replica maker Harrison Krix from Volpin Props. I don’t even want to think about how expensive that handmade piece of awesome would cost.
