Some people are really creative with LEGO. Long time CoD fan and YouTuber ZaziNombies is one of those true brick masters. He’s made life-size replicas of almost all of Call of Duty: Ghosts’ weapons out of what else?
Remember the 80s? Kids had a lot of martial arts weapons back then. In fact I’m surprised that so many of us survived. Between the throwing stars, butterfly knives and nunchuks that everyone was messing around with, it’s amazing there wasn’t a giant ninja war.
Now is your chance to own Han Solo’s actual DL-44 blaster from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. This classic weapon is currently up for auction on invaluable.com with a starting bid of $200,000(USD).
We’ve already seen Etsy seller Philip Isherwood’s Saberforge Battle Sabers, a series of very original prop weapons. While I’m still researching how he came up with his utterly unique designs, Philip already upped the ante. He’s now making Saberforge Staffs, which have not one but two blades.
I just want to stare all day at this amazing Skyrim Nord bow. It looks so authentic and beautiful. According to the maker it isn’t functional yet, but that shouldn’t be too difficult. Once it actually shoots, it will take your your knee clean off.
One of the strangest mythological weapons out there in my opinion has always been hammer wielded by Thor. Mjölnir is an interesting weapon in that reminds me a bit of the Excalibur where only one person can ever wield the hammer.
Etsy seller Kilroy’s Attic makes folding brass knuckles designed to look like the Xenomorph from the Alien movies. I wouldn’t want to face a terrifying space creature that thinks I’m an incubator with just a melee weapon, much less one that only works at point blank range.
We’ve featured a variety of rapid fire rubber band guns before, but they were either custom made or crazy expensive. XYZbot is here for us poor, lazy and non-mechanically-inclined folks. They launched a Kickstarter fundraiser for a fully automatic and electric rubber band machine gun that’s cheap and easy to assemble.
If you’re a big fan of the Mass Effect franchise, you’ll undoubtedly remember the M-6 Carnifex pistol. We’ve seen some really cool replicas of weapons from the video game in the past, like the N7 rifle replica, but you couldn’t buy that particular replica.
In swords that are too heavy to lift news, the folks at Brick Replicas have built this amazing and huge replica Buster Sword. Final Fantasy fans will recognize it as the one from Final Fantasy VII, but with steampunk style.
Shotguns are great for dealing out the maximum damage over a large area. Double barrels, sawed off, it’s all good. But it doesn’t get any better than this triple barrel shotgun. Especially when you’re talking about the zombie apocalypse.
We have seen some incredibly cool props come from the replicating geeks over at Volpin Props. One of my favorites was the Terrible Shotgun from Fallout 3. The latest build to surface is definitely of the quality we expect prop maker Harrison Krix, and this time it comes from the Halo universe.
We’ve featured a variety of awesome fan made replicas of weapons and armor from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But not everyone’s as skilled or patient as those Cosplayborn. That’s where the specialty shop Folkenstal comes in.
With all of the controversy going on regarding “real” weapons, what with their ability to cause bodily harm, it’s best to stay out of the eternally-burning fire of this argument. Instead of going to Walmart and purchasing an assault rifle, why not save yourself some money and some responsibility?
When you are a secret spy working for British intelligence, your people come up with all kinds of cool gadgets for you to kill or maim. And if you need to protect some documents, and 007’s concealed blade briefcase is the perfect thing.
