Lego Weapons: Realistic Enough to Hold Up a Liquor Store

You can create just about anything with Legos, but now we direct your attention to a subset of the Lego-building posse: These guys make guns. The one pictured on the left could even be kinda dangerous, shooting what its maker calls "very strong rubber bands," albeit one at a time.

Rather than functionality, the BrickGun Desert Eagle on the right goes for realism, and yes, it's made of 288 genuine Lego parts. It's BrickGun's biggest handgun model yet, and it looks close enough to the real thing to fool a convenience store clerk. Remarkable. It's $55 for the parts and instructions.
