12ed_mass_effect_geth_pulse_rifle_replica_alt2THE PEW PEW OF THE SYNTHETICS

The danger with making synthetic beings to do all the hard chores is one day those beings realizing they are, in fact, beings. That is, they become sentient. And then they desire the rights of all the other sentient beings they see (which isn’t unreasonable). If those other sentient beings take up arms against the synthetics, the synthetics might replicate that behavior, as well. This is the story (part of it, anyways) of the Geth from the Mass Effect series. And this, the Mass Effect Geth Pulse Rifle Full Scale Replica, is a replica of one of their standard weapons.

Geth Pulse Rifles are finely balanced with low-recoil and incredibly high accuracy. And this Mass Effect Geth Pulse Rifle Full Scale Replica doesn’t have any recoil (because it doesn’t shoot) and features amazing accuracy to the weapon in the game. It weighs 20 lbs., has LED light effects, and is a very limited edition (only 500 worldwide)! If you’re a true Mass Effectian (Mass Effecter? Mass Effectie?), then you need to add a Mass Effect Geth Pulse Rifle Full Scale Replica to your collection.

Product Specifications:

Hand-finished and hand-painted polystone

Working LED effects

Limited Edition of 500 pieces worldwide

Officially-licensed Mass Effect 3 weapon replica, created by TriForce

Dimensions: 12" x 7" x 33"

Weight: 20 lbs.

Since I really love LEGO and have a bunch of small kits assembled on my office shelf, this really sounds good to me.

I think I’ve received a dozen emails from people pointing me to a LEGO model of the Curiosity rover at the CUUSOO website. CUUSOO is a website where LEGO modelers can share concepts for kits. The CUUSOO community can vote to support concepts, and if the concept receives 10,000 votes, it goes to a LEGO committee. Each quarter, the committee reviews the supported concepts, and may choose one to actually bring to market as an official LEGO kit.

An amazing LEGO model of Curiosity | The Planetary Society.

Watched this and I have gotten the bug to buy another helicopter again. I think I’ll try to find parts and fix my old one at least, would like to get the simulator off this site.
