A few months ago I came across these ‘steampunk' rayguns from Weta Collectibles (an offshoot of the digital effects company behind LOTR, King Kong, etc.) and haven't been able to get them out of my head. So, earlier today I finally pulled the trigger and ordered one, namely the Goliathon 83 Infinity Beam Projector. I think I'm going to keep it on my desk at work — I figure it'll make for a pretty neat conversation piece.
My girlfriend's reaction: "you are kidding right? please tell me you are kidding… you bought a $700 fake raygun???" I obviously wanted a real raygun, but unfortunately I'm neither a military man nor an alien. Come on Sarah, think. :)
