Touted as the “Worlds first, multi-action rubber band shotgun…”, the Bandit Guns are one of two models that come in a kit style and are assembled from 14 pieces of laser cut birch plywood held together with binding bolts.

A smaller model, “The Outlaw”, lacks a trigger, allows for 9 rubber bands, and single shot and rapid fire firing modes. Made in the USA.

This giant-sized Green Army Man is made from cold-cast resin and stands at one-and-a-half feet tall. Seam lines and injection mold rings were added to the figure to stay true to the appearance of the original plastic Army Men, although additional details such as buttons, shoelaces, hair, and a USA insignia were also added. A great nostalgia piece.
This incredibly detailed replica of the Terrible Shotgun, a unique, higher damage variant of the in-game combat shotgun, from Fallout 3 features a rear stock and forward grip cut from red oak. The barrel, heat shield, aluminum, trigger mechanism, sights, and forward pump piston are all constructed from aluminum. The right side cocking lever and trigger are both spring loaded, and the two included drum magazines are built to lock in place with magnetic catches to simulate on-screen reloads for the replica’s use in the web series ‘Fallout: Nuka Break‘. The Terrible Shotgun replica is the work of Volpin Props.
Still funny, but kinda defeats the purpose of ‘”Action Figure” Therapy’. Still, it’s always nice to see some change, and of course there’s no indication that the series will go this route; seems more like a one-off thing.
This officially licensed miniature Portal gun replica is for everybody who didn’t get a chance at the full-sized (and expensive) version.

Seen above are Bag Man, Dr. Drake, Pink Fluffy Bunny, and White Bunny, the four new CIBoys created through a collaborative effort between Magpul PTS and Mad Rabbit Studio, a Taiwan based creative design house. The four CIBoys are inspired by Magpul Industries and as such feature the Magpul logo somewhere on their design. No word on pricing and availability at the moment. Also, I’ll be damned if Pink Fluffy Bunny doesn’t look like an unholy union of Frank the Bunny from Donnie Darko and the Trollface of internet fame, but with a red suit.

It seems when the Russians stole the plans for S.H.I.E.L.D.’s helicarrier, they drastically misinterpreted the proper dimensions when building their own version.
Marudai has introduced this model RPG-7 that fires liquid-filled bottle rockets from what looks like pressure induced by a common bicycle pump. It retails for approximately $360 US, but as far as I know it’s only available in Japan; better find an importer if you want one of these.

kickstarter Indiegogo project. This time for a toy shotgun that shoots ordinary table salt for the removal of unwanted house flies and other annoying critters.
Another Kickstarter project with a cool product, this time from a group named Legion-10 for the creation of Desktop Ballistae. The kits consist of laser cut hardwood and take roughly 30 minutes to construct. A deluxe version that uses a horse hair rope along with brass and steel parts (for added realism) and a ballista target is available at higher donation levels. Additionally, custom laser engraving is also an option.
The project’s already over 10 times its minimum required pledge level, but a sufficiently high donation will guarantee a Ballista for those interested.

NECA is releasing a replica of the hidden blade as used by Ezio Auditore da Firenze in the Assassin’s Creed series of video games. Made of PVC and ABS plastics, it’s highly detailed with a surprisingly quick spring loaded action that launches the roughly 15″ plastic blade with the push of a button; a safety lock mechanism helps to prevent any unwarranted deployments of said blade. An adjustable buckle and Velcro straps keep the replica secure on the user’s wrist. It’s available exclusively through GameStop and will be released October 30th of this year. There’s also a video the pre-order site, so you can see it in action.
