One particularly nostalgic branch of science fiction is steampunk — shining brass, gears, knobs, goggles…. I’ve been subscribed to Weta’s Raygun newsletter for a while, since the collectibles first started popping up in gorgeous photographs, but this latest (miniature) edition made me laugh out loud. Let’s just say the title caught my eye?
The Goliathon 800 Moon Hater Death Ray
Since the dawn of time, Man has gazed wearily with fear and contempt into the cosmos. One luminescent beacon in particular has looked back, chiding and heckling us like a giant white space jerk, the Moon.
Now, thanks to the ingenious contrivers at Goliathon, we have at our disposal a means of heckling back and then some! This imperious metal behemoth will make a superb centre-piece to any laboratory or lounge and allow you to begin a well rounded bombardment of any Moon habitation you fancy, all from a comfy chair.
All of the rayguns here are exquisitely detailed, the miniatures no less so; you simply must do yourself a favor and check out the Moon Hater Death Ray and all the rest of Dr. Grordbort’s Infallible Aether Oscillators.
