The Fire Wire 2010 Holiday Gift Guide: Dr. Grordbort’s Infallible Aether Oscillator Ray-Guns

Dr. Grordbort’s world and Victorian era munitions ($100 – $700) are the ingenious fabrication of Weta Designer Greg Broadmore. Broadmore began the project via drawings and paintings featuring Dr. Grordbort and his weapons of choice, not to mention creepy aliens.

He and his associate Richard Taylor brought this fantastic world to life in 2007 when they fabricated their first three ray-guns. Since then, many other Infallible Aether Oscillators have been produced, along with a published reference guide/catalogue titled Dr. Grordobort’s Contrapulatronic Dingus Dictionary.

These harmless, gorgeous steampunk ray-guns would look awesome in the lair of your sci-fi loving teen (or 45 year-old man-child). Yes, I have one…it’s the Righteous Bison model which sits proudly on my credenza resting on the Universal Gun Stand should any otherworldly creatures attack our abode. These highly detailed realistic looking plastic/metal “weapons” make great conversation pieces plus the box is so handsome, you won’t even have to wrap it up for the holidays!
