Weta® Gets Punk’d

Weta® Gets Punk’dWell…not in the sense of the MTV show made popular by host Ashton Kutcher. Weta Workshop, of New Zealand, best known for the incredible and magnificently detailed effects and props for the Lord of The Rings Trilogy, has gotten into Steampunk.

What is Steampunk? See my article, Steampunk: Old is New Again, or visit the Steampunk Workshop for more information.

WIRED Magazine even covered the geekery in their latest issue (on News Stands today!) or you can visit Wired Online for a peek at the cast metal toys.

This line of toy laser guns started out as drawings by artist Greg Broadmore; they then were crafted by modelmaker David Tremont and cast in metal.
