Playing with LEGO bricks is perhaps one of the most educational activities that a kid can engage in, but this post is NOT for kids. Instead, I bring you another excellent idea for a Valentine’s Day gift for your AFOL partner.
There’s this book titled Badass LEGO Guns: Guns 5 Working with LEGO Components! which you can buy from Amazon for only 17.95 euro. ((Buy the book.)) Written by Hüdepohl Martin, the book gives you detailed instructions on how to build your own guns using LEGO Technic parts. And, if you think that the guns will only be useful for the display shelves, think again! These guns are fully functional, except that they use LEGO bricks as bullets. Trust me, these are arguably better than the NERF guns I wrote about the other day.
Choose from the following weapons:
- THRILLER – a crossbow pistol
- PARA BELLA – this one shoots rubber bands (Oh, fun!)
- THE WARBEAST – a fully-automatic submachine gun
- LILIPUTTER – a semi-automatic pistol
- MINI-THRILLER – a crossbow pistol that folds
Now don’t tell me that doesn’t get you excited? If you need more convincing, this video of the guns in action will no doubt get your blood pumping. Put on your nicest ear phones, please.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
