If you are anything like me, you will need to read this quickly and then head off to eBay to sell off some of your junk so you can buy one. ThinkGeek has unveiled a replica of the prop rifle from the Aliens flick. You remember the pulse rifle the gang used in the movie.
The ThinkGeek rifle is a 100% authentic replica of the movie weapon down to the size and color of the brown shrouds and the under barrel grenade launcher. That launcher has a handle that actually moves and the entire replica weapon weighs 15 pounds. The thing is not a plastic toy.
The side of the rifle has a red LED counter just as the movie weapon did. Each time you eject the magazine and reinsert it resets the counter to 95. The clip holds the pair of AA batteries that power the display. I’m not sure if the counter actually works and counts down each time the trigger is pulled or not. It comes with a wall rack and you can own one for $899.99. Awesome isn’t cheap.Filed Under: Toys
