Steampunk ray gun goes pew pew, zap zap

Hey it’s me again, Jonathan Samson with a new creation for your perusal. When I originally wanted to create a ray gun, I started by building a couple of diodes – for inspiration I was trying a new sorting technique (pre-sorting into hues). I found I had an eclectic array of dark orange and dark tan pieces that seemed fit for purpose – round pieces for the barrel, a wing for the trigger and a bucketload of medium dark flesh crow’s nest elements for the pistol grip, so the diodes quickly got crystal downgrades and it became my first steampunk creation.

Shannon Ocean speaks on LEGO gun control

Now that I’ve caught your attention with the title, you can take some time to look at Shannon Sproule’s (Ocean) latest real-life size rayguns. Because they’re beautiful. I love it when Shannon takes his Battle for the Moon asthetic to human scale.
