Badass LEGO Guns
I focus on the intersection of games and technology. Share to facebook Share to twitter Share to linkedin When I started writing this post, my intention was to write a fairly traditional review of a new book from No Starch Press, written by Martin Hudepohl.
I'd picked out a few favorite parts of the text, mentally composed an anecdote tying the subject matter into my own life, and lined up a few token complaints about where the book could be improved. But let's get real.
Hudepohl sold you a copy as soon as you read the title. This is pages of step-by-step instructions to build five different, working firearms, all out of LEGO bricks and rubber bands.
And we're not talking about peashooters: Take a closer look at the Warbeast, the same weapon depicted on the cover of the book: click to embiggen That's a half-meter-long, part, fully automatic assault rifle. It fires LEGO bricks at a rate of rounds per minute, from a magazine that holds 30 2x1 bricks. More Details Friend Reviews.

See a Problem?
In terms of appearance and the "want to build" factor, all of the models are great. But I had some concerns with the actual mechanics. The overall parts list at the start of the chapter was basically correct; I think I had to dig out one additional piece while I was building and had four extra parts left over at the end but it was certainly close enough to make the build a pleasure.
The assembly instructions left a little s I've leafed through this book but only constructed one of the guns so far. The assembly instructions left a little something to be desired.
They weren't particularly clear in spots; I could always figure out what needed to be done, but an additional step here and there or even additional explanatory diagrams would have been much appreciated.
The parts lists embedded in each step were not always accurate, and it appeared in some places that the order of assembly had been refined during editing but the parts lists not updated to match.
The little red circles indicating "pay attention" were almost always pointless, indicating details that had actually been assembled a step or two before. As a whole the model is functional, but I feel that too much effort was put into appearance and cool extras rather than the actual primary gun function.
Although honestly this just means that I'll have to rebuild the guns to my own improved designs, and that means more playtime for me. Overall I'd give this book five stars for inspiration but only three stars for practicality.
But don't get me wrong - even with all of the my reservations the one gun I've built is pretty awesome. Perhaps the highest praise I can offer: My wife, who in general tolerates my Lego habit with cool indifference at best, exclaimed "that is so cool" when I demoed the gun.
You could do some serious damage with this thing.
You could hurt people. You could really make a nuisance of yourself around the office. The Warbeast uses two LEGO Technic motors to keep the gun firing at a constant rate, but the other guns in the book are powered by nothing but rubber bands and physics.
There's the Thriller, a powerful crossbow pistol with smooth cocking and chambering mechanisms; the Parabella, a pint-sized, luger-like handgun; the Liliputt, a semi-automatic pistol with a nine-brick magazine; and the Mini-Thriller, a folding crossbow pistol.
The best part: Hudepohl tells you exactly what pieces you'll need to build each gun, and provides the part numbers so you can buy them from online catalogs like BrickLink or Pick A Brick. So if you're like me and don't have the Technic pieces on hand to finish one of these projects, you're only a few clicks away from skull-denting LEGO goodness.
