STEAMPUNK RAYGUNS FROM NEW ZEALAND
These highly collectible rayguns are produced at Weta, the special-effects outfit that has worked on a host of leading edge movies, from Narnia to Lord of the Rings.
Steampunk as a genre has come on like a train in the last few years, with books and comics aplenty. On the big screen, several movies have used steampunk elements, but nothing as yet with the genre as its core. Here's hoping - maybe John Carter of Mars, now on the production line at Disney, will do the biz.
