Every now and then, an iconic weapon will appear. It’s the symbol of a great hero or a terrifying villain. It’s instantly recognizable. Who is John Crichton without Winona? Or Sora without the Keyblade? Or Jinx without Fishbones? The weapon becomes an essential part of who they are. Sometimes, it even evokes…ugh…feelings.
Squishy emotions aside, one of the awesome things about living in the glorious age of digital geekdom is that we can actually get replicas of these weapons for ourselves! Or in this case, for others. Just imagine the look on your best friend’s face when they open up a gift from you to find the Sword of Truth from Terry Goodkind’s books. I might cry if someone gave me that. Stupid squishy emotions. I also just really like swords.
I’ve put together a gallery of super awesome weapon replicas for you to surprise your friends and family with this holiday season. Because nothing says love like a Halo Needler.
