Half-Life 2 Gravity Gun
It's a great looking replica of the ZPEFM, and awesome to see how big it actually is. I ordered it for Christmas and got it on time, in 2 days with free shipping thanks to GameStop. Other sites are charging $20+ for the shipping and about $10 more for the item, so it was really a nice deal buying it here. Here are the pros and cons on the gun: (1) Ours turned up not fully functional. All the part were there, we put in the batteries, flicked the ON switch and then nothing. Wouldn't power up. Reluctant to ship it back and wait for a new one, we carefully took it apart and found the problem. One of the wires needed to make contact with the positive point of the batteries was loose. We fixed it, assembled it again and boom! Beautiful light and sound effects. (2) It could have been made a little better. It looks like it was assembled by hand - I've seen the inside now - and there are hints of human error. I have seen the same comment in other people's reviews on it with things like the paint job. But these are miniscule things that don't detract from it over all. (3) Pity it's all made out of plastic. It would have been cool if just SOME of the parts were metal and/or glass, though this would have made it pricier obviously. Aesthetically it looks fantastic. The paint job is so convincing. It's more a collector's thing to have it also feel more real I suppose. In summary I highly recommend it to any HL2 fans. It really does look and sound awesome, just like in the game, and is more cost effective than trying to build your own.
