Dr. Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators
May 28, 2007 7:50 AM   Subscribe

Dr. Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators is "a line of immensely dangerous yet simple to operate wave oscillation weapons" - rayguns - that includes the Manmelter 3600ZX, the Goliathon 83, and the F.M.O.M. Industries Wave Disrupter Gun. Designed by Greg Broadmore to evoke the old-school Flash Gordon serials, they bring a fun steampunk aesthetic to Weta's Collectibles' traditional movie tie-in fare.

Ok now they are working. Weird. I clicked 3 of the wetanz.com links and all returned server error messages.

Sorry for the premature warning.

Personally, I always thought of Kirby's depiction of an Ultimate Nullifier as more along the size of what I am looking for.

But does it have an Mp3 player?

Beautiful sculptures.

Too bad they don't have the bowel disruptor.

wish they had prints available of some of the promotional art since the actual guns are beyond my budget of reason currently. very cool.

Those guns are all kinds o' cool. Good find, gemmy!

Those are very cool, even though I try very hard to like "steampunk" stuff I cannot avoid liking these.

And while the prices seem steep, I'm trying to imagine myself making those for sale and coming up with numbers way higher than that.

Oh, wow. My grandfather had one of these back in WWII, when he was fighting the spider-soldiers of Reverse Germany. This site really brings back some fond memories of sitting on his knee and hearing him talk about the Antivenom Squadron and the Pulse Brigade and how he met grandmom. Cool find, thanks!

I was always a fan of the Fecalator myself, but that's a different era altogether...

Gotta admit, these are beautiful though, all those cheap plastic toys I had post Star Wars seem so pale in comparison...

I just made a raygun for my dad's birthday inspired by these and Lockwasher's intergalactic self-defense mechanisms.

Amazing sculpting work! Made me think though, if only science and art could unite.
