The maker wrote a how-to guide so everyone can have a Thwomp (if they want one, that is. And why wouldn’t you?) I have to say, I never thought of using concrete for a craft project!
After some great feedback on his recent lightsaber blueprint, Sprite Stitch’s Lord Libidan decided to do another. This time he’s chosen a weapon from his favourite movie, The Fifth Element.
The gun is called the ZF-1 and the blueprint shows all of its different features in wonderfully stitched detail. Fantastic job, LL!

Our very own funkymonkey from the forums made this awesome costume. She did a great job! Check out this video of it in action – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LbVwpj12dw
It’s a full-sized replica, with lights and sounds. ThinkGeek says, “Turn it on and you’ll hear a power up sound and watch the power meter fill up. Reach in, grab the handle, and you’re ready for action. Quickly pull the trigger and you’ll hear a single fire sound and the end will flash. Hold in the trigger, though, and you’ll watch the power meter fill and the sound intensify until you release the trigger, firing a charged shot!”
It could be fun. I have to say, though, that for $79.99 they could include the 3 AA batteries.
