The Choose Your Weapons tee at

This time the listing is as follows.

 

 

  1. Klingon Bat’Leth
  2. Predator arm blades
  3. Sting – The Fellowship of the Ring
  4. Zorg ZF1 – The Fifth Element
  5. Autocannon – District 9
  6. Ka D’Argo’s gunblade – Farscape
  7. Blaster – Battlestar Galactica (Original Series)
  8. Terminator Weapon – Terminator 2 : Judgement Day
  9. Mal’s Pistol – Firefly
  10. Noisy Cricket – Men in Black
  11. Trooper’s pistol – V (Original Series)
  12. Blade’s Glaive – Blade
  13. M41 Pulse Rifle – Aliens
  14. Samaritan – Hellboy
  15. PPG – Babylon 5

  25. Stun Pistol – Space 1999
  26. Han’s Holdout Blaster – Star Wars
  27. Raygun – Forbidden Planet
  28. Sentry Robot Pistol – The Black Hole

 

Honourable mentions must go to the Palomino crew’s blaster, both the Federation trooper’s para gun and the Liberator’s handguns (both excellent off the wall designs imho), Crichton’s pistol, and the ball from Phantasm.

All great designs that I had to leave out for reason’s of space or apathy.
