Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear #9: Half-Life 2 Gravity Gun, Majora’s Mask Backpack, Hungry Hungry Koopas

This week on Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear,  Nintendo and Valve fans rejoice! Gordon Freeman’s favourite physics-based weapons could be yours, the apocalyptic Zelda mask is now a source for portable storage and Bowser and the crew chomp down some marbles. It’s one amazing collection this week, so make sure you click each image to appreciate them in full-size!

Half-Life 2 Gravity Gun

You may have seen us feature ThinkGeek products in the past, most notably the Portal Gun and Minecraft Torch. Continuing their excellent purveyance of awesome and officially licensed video game merchandise, we bring you the Half-Life 2 Gravity Gun replica!

The Gravity Gun replica will be going on sale this April on ThinkGeek for $150. Be warned, that the product will be supplied in very limited quantities, and will not re-appear on sale again. When the full-sized Portal gun replica went on sale last year, it took just half hour to sell out forever. Fortunately though, you can sign up for an email alert on the ThinkGeek page.

And if you’re rich, lucky and quick enough to get your hands on this little beauty, you can expect 4 in-game sound effects, LEDs, and a fold-away kickstand for display. Oh, and it’s an completely accurate, 1:1 model too, so you can finally live your life as Gordon Freeman as you’ve always fantasised.

Majora’s Mask Backpack

We feature a lot of Zelda-based items on Crafts ‘N Gear… but can you blame us when it’s always this awesome? Deviantart user tavington hand-made this Majora’s Mask backpack completely from scratch.

Not only is it a fantastic idea, the level of detail is stunning. Those eyes are as menacing as ever, and those protuding spikes look deadly and excellently coloured. Tavington has also made a similarly amazing Hylian Shield backpack.

Hungry Hungry Koopas

You remember Hungry, Hungry Hippos, right? That fun tabletop game where you gobble up all of the rolling marbles with your hippo. Now imagine that with a Super Mario theme, and infinitely more awesome.

Kody Koala, a highly skilled craftsmen spent over 50 hours on this masterpiece, with 10 hours spent creating each individual Koopa. Bowser and the Koopa Kids replace the hippos, complete with greatly detailed shells, heads and bodies. Now that’s one non-video game thing that I could picture myself playing all day!
