WETA, the special effects studio behind movies such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has a new line of prop rayguns, and they're actually sort of affordable this time.
WETA has been selling incredible ray guns for a while now, but they've run into the hundreds of dollars range. The new line, Dr. Grordbort's Rayguns, are made of molded plastic instead of metal, bringing those prices down to a less-unreasonable $40-$115. And they look pretty awesome to me. If you're looking to spring on a nerdy toy for your desk, you could do a lot worse. [Dr. Grordbort's Rayguns via Boing Boing]
