Weta has done a number of awesome things for the film and television industries, but for the discerning steampunk cosplayer in your life, the company has just the thing in the form of Dr. Grordbort’s Righteous Bison gun.

Where traditionally manufacturers in the Wave Oscillation genre have (some say lazily) gone down the well charted route of heft and mass, the Righteous Bison has been designed with the handler in mind. Portability and wieldability have been the guiding lights for the ground breaking team of young talent that’s been put in charge of this whimsical undertaking.

Many of the Dr. Grordbort guns are super expensive, which makes this item a steal at only $99.00. Sure, it’s made of plastic, but it is the gun used in the Dr. Grordbort emblem, and the design is a perfect example of the steampunk retro-sci-fi genre.

    Gonna have to buy two! (Because that’s how many hands I still have.) Looks great!
    Pretty certain that young “Clark Savage” could build this when he was in kindergarten… but, he was home schooled… in a good way.
