About the Weta Originals Rayuns
The Rayguns: Dr Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators, is a line of 1:1 scale antique styled, sci-fi hand weapon props. With charming 1900s contraption styling and finish, the Rayguns evoke the nostalgia of a lost age of exploration and discovery, and possess an intentional sense of humour and fun in their design.
The three Rayguns are the first pieces to be revealed from the limited edition Weta Originals range. The concept of the Weta Originals line stemmed from the abundance of creativity that thrives at Weta Workshop under the Direction of Oscar® Award winner, Richard Taylor.
The guns will be limited edition pieces. There will be only 500 of each gun made worldwide, all of which will be handcrafted and made out of metal with some glass parts. Every Raygun comes with its own velvet lined pressed tin case, Certificate of Authenticity and an assortment of implements and crafting tools. Not only that, these bad boys will be a decent punch of metal – with each gun weighing in at over 7 pounds each these are no light investment.
Each Raygun will retail at NZ $1165.00 (incl GST) and will be available for sale later this year. Weta Originals will also reveal a further piece at this years’ San Diego Comic Convention in July.
