Custom Verse Pistol

Postby Birdie » Wed Jun 10, 2009 9:40 pm

Did this a while ago, in a bored moment. Inspired by the Mal concept drawing in the Serenity Companion.

Pretty swank. Did this begin its life as a found item, or are you responsible for the insane engraving on the barrel and cylinder?

That's a pretty spiffy piece of hardware. Have you made up a backstory for it?

Manufacturer and the like...
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

It's really fun that it's got a clip and a cylinder - like a nod to the Mal pistol...

Mal's pistol doesn't have a cylinder..........

Hmmm, I like it! I just have a regular Denix cowboy pistol that I currently use.

You know Brickarms makes custom Navy revolvers for Lego minifigs? I found them yesterday and was thinking of buying some for my 'Verse inspired setup I'm working on.

Internally it's a revolver. And despite the brass boxes on the side, that profile's hard to conceal. I think that adds to the fanciful quality of the gun (and I think it's why so many people assumed in the beginning that it was just a Colt Peacemaker with a bunch of stuff on it).

Oh, I'm quite familiar with it's construction :lol:

My point is that Mal's pistol doesn't have cylinder. The Prop does, but you're not supposed to know that, hence the brass casing.

As with all prop replicas, one has to decide if they're making a replica of the pistol if it were real in thus Universe, or a replica of the prop of the pistol.

The Bladerunner Blaster is a case in point.

Heh - yeah, I know you are well-versed...with, well - the 'Verse. But still - you know what I mean. Certain lines just can't be erased. If you know a thing about guns...and you see Deckard's gun - you instantly think "It looks like someone put a rifle and a revolver together..." You see the bolt and the obvious cylinder - you just have to figure out how it was done. You already know the "why" - 'cause it looks awesome.
