back to article Life-size Lego assault rifle really works

We've seen all sorts of gadgets built from Lego and this wouldn't be the first piece of artillery either. However, this life-sized Gears of War assault rifle replica is far too impressive to ignore.

    I'm so sad

    I just watched this and clapped with delight! My wife just shook her head and looked disapprovingly at me. Oh well, back to You Tube & FPS Russia.

      My wife did much the same thing...

      When I bought a surplus geiger counter for 20 bucks.

      You can take solace that your wife probably shook her head, looked disapprovingly at you, and turned her head back to Strictly Come Dancing or something. Who's the real winner?

        Re: the wife and those oh so essential gadgets

        Show the wife a Lakeland catalogue and she'll probably get just as excited as we do at the prospect this Lego model.

        We came back in this morning to find the post had arrived.

        "Is that my Lakeland porn" she cried with delight.

      no no no no no

      The plural of sheep is sheep.

      The plural of fish is fish.

      The plural of Lego is Lego.

        'Fishes' is also a valid plural in some contexts.

    And I am INSANELY jealous on this occasion. Good work!

    Wouldn't be seen dead with one.

    Come to think of it, I probably would be seen dead with one as I'm an electrician and plod has a nasty habit of shooting us in the face if we are seen holding anything remotely gun looking.

    I dinna get it!

    I played with Lego a lot when I was young, but I don't recall the lego sets having anything like a rifle butt or chainsaw component nor anything which could be co-erced into such. But then again as I toured the Queen Mary before she left Southampton for the last time in about the same timeframe things might have moved on a bit.

      Similar thought to me then

      That didn't realy look like real Lego like the stuff I had as a kid. Then again Lego stopped being a bunch of bricks that required imagionation to make things many years ago.

      Most of the Lego kits sold these days are more like self assembly toys, with bespoke bits that only realy make one thing.

        Perhaps one might ask, if the bits only ever make one thing,

        how someone with a bit of talent, skill and imagination has so obviously and successfully managed to make, as it were, something else?

    how long before...

    ...airport security ban passengers from taking lego bricks on board?

    Different definition

    I guess your definition of "really works" is different from mine.

    But my god, there is about £500 worth of Lego there. Cheap it is not.

    Downvotes - and my bit!

    Strangely, every single post has a downvote. This one will possibly have one too, soon.

    Anyway, dickhead downvoters aside, I reckon this gun looks effing cool and the engineering prowess of the bloke who build it deserves a pint of best! More please.

      The title is missing a piece... it rolled under the couch.

      With enough practice, I think so.

    Pathetic wannabe building a toy gun to impress other pathetic wannabes. Just buy a squirt gun, at least you can get each other wet. Basements have water faucets right? Right. Better yet, get a girlfriend ... or boyfriend as the case may be.
