The Octavirate Forge Shapeways NES Inspired Zapper Gun 5mm Grip AccessoryGuns are a big part of the American experience. Even if you live in a no-gun home, your toys had guns, and your video games probably did as well. Nearly every home with a Nintendo Entertainment System in the 1980s had a light gun to play Duck Hunt, and Trent Troop designed his NES Inspired Zapper Gun 5mm Grip for that reason. Even if you'll never touch a gun, you've probably used a Zapper in Hogan's Alley or Duck Hunt. But not Gumshoe or Barker Bill's Trick Shooting.

This small blaster comes extruded in whichever plastic color you so choose. I got this metallic polished plastic, and it's pretty good. I wish it had some decoration build in because I can't paint things, but as it is, it works.

You take it out of the bag, you put it in a figure's hand, and there you go. Now they can pretend to play Duck Hunt.

The sculpting was good, and the form fit is pretty much perfect in the fists I've tried - by design, these work in your Transformers toys without much of a fight. So many toys have 5mm-compatible fists that you may also enjoy using them with He-Man or Battle Beasts stations or certain Zoids. The detail is good, and it looks better in person than it does in the photos. It's still a little fragile, though, so don't give it to a kid and don't play with it - just put it in the hand and leave it be. Or paint it, if that's your bag.

The weapons I got from this shipment are all pretty good - top-notch designs and a decent overall in-person look. I wish they were made of a more durable material, but such is life. If you got six bucks to blow, this is a worthwhile gag weapon for the kind of fan who has figures on their desk and wants to outfit them with cool accessories. It's not going to change the world, but it's the kind of thing your toy buddies will enjoy seeing.
