New BrickArms Zombie Defense Weapons Pack at BrickCon 2008 [News]

BrickCon 2008 begins this Thursday! When I announced prizes and giveaways for the Zombie Apocafest, I realized we needed a good way to repel the zombie menace.

What better way to fend of that flesh-eating horde than with a special set of weapons designed for just that purpose from BrickArms?

In addition to the other prizes and giveaways, BrickArms and The Brothers Brick will be handing out new Zombie Defense Weapons Packs to everyone who contributes a building or vehicle to the Zombie Apocafest display. That’s right: BrickArms for free!

The weapons pack is full of the tools of the zombie-hunting trade:

  • SW500 Magnum Revolver (for stopping power; x2)
  • M21 Sniper Rifle (for keeping your distance)
  • Mk48 Mod 0 Machine Gun
  • AK Assault Rifle (doesn’t jam as easily as the M4/M16)
  • Uzi Submachine Gun (x2)
  • Bipod (x2) and Monopod (x3)
  • Combat Shotgun (brand-new prototype)
  • M1 Garand Rifle (in black)
  • M1 1911 .45 Pistol (backup weapon #1)
  • Baseball Bat (backup weapon #2)
  • Glow-in-the-dark Zombie Head

If you don’t have time to build something for the display, you’ll be able to buy your very own Zombie Defense Weapons Pack at the BrickArms table. And if you can’t make it in person, BrickArms will be making these available through the re-launched

Well, I’m off to finish up my final building for the display and begin creating the horde itself… :D

    wow, it’s great! I don;t have any zombie legos, so I’ll have to just buy it. I added your site to my custom lego instructions and designs blog, since you inspired me to make my site. I make custom guns that aren’t molded but made from lego pieces for Star Wars , like rocket luanchers and sniper rifles. They are really creative and unique, so sometime could you maybe post some onto your site? That would be great!

    What are we doing for set-up? I work until 7, so it’ll probably be closer to 8 before I get to Seattle on Thursday. Right now, I have a few 6-wide police and military vehicles, a graveyard, and I’m trying to make a few last minute buildings but I keep getting lured outside by the sunshine…

    ^ Great question. I’ll be there most of the day on Thursday (except when I go pick up Nannan at the airport), so that’ll give us a sense of what all will be available when we start doing serious integration on Friday.

    Coordination on this has been fairly dispersed, so all of these last-minute additions have my head spinning a bit — but in a good way! :D

    Confused me for a moment. I saw the M14 and thought you had it mixed up with the Garand, but that’s your sniper rifle, and the Garand is at the bottom.

    It still needs an M16, though, for non-third world operators.;)
