I really hate people who gloat, show off, show off threads, etc., but as a service to the community, here's what came in today. Sideshow gets kudos for a well cast and prepped prop (I know there are better) for the T2 fan.
It's heavy, solid. About 9.5 lbs gun alone. It's a cast, but I can only contrast to the Constantine Shotgun, it's an order of magnitude better in detail, paint, and the ability to lift it off the base. I'm impessed with Sideshow since the Samaritan came out.Originally posted by Kerr Avon@Feb 15 2006, 10:16 PM

Super-daddy sweet. Try getting through an airport with that sucker.Originally posted by Sidewinder@Feb 16 2006, 06:13 PM
The bottom barrel is the pilot laser, the top fires the Plasma bolt, the mag is prob a battery of some sort.
"One of the most effective is the 40-Watt Phased Plasma Rifle, which fires superheated hydrogen compressed to a plasma state. After targeting, a pilot laser in the weapon vaporizes a path through the atmosphere to the target a microsecond before the plasma bolt is produced. The rifle is capable of rate of fire superior to the common resistance weaponry, with minimal risk of overheating or weapon shutdown. The plasma bolt is capable of penetrating nearly all forms of armor protection. Striking an organic target with the super hot plasma bolt will almost certainly result in fatality, including the possibility of explosion or neatly cauterized amputation. A near miss can inflict third degree burns, and 'splash damage' can be as devastating as a traditional grenade blast."
