Good News, Here’s A Mjölnir Everyone Can Lift, But The Size Might Be An Issue

It is said that only the worthy one will be able to lift the mythical Mjölnir, but with the Marvel Thor’s Hammer 4’ Oversized Foam Prop, you don’t need to be worthy or enchanted to wield it because, it has a real-world weight of mere 20 lbs (around 9 kilograms). Hell, even a kid could pull it along. No, wait. There is just one problem here. At 4 feet (1.2 meter) tall, it might be a little too big to be conveniently lug around and obviously, it won’t make you fly like Thor.

It is of prop-favorite material: foam. Continue reading Good News, Here’s A Mjölnir Everyone Can Lift, But The Size Might Be An Issue

All you need are cardboard, corrugated paper (AKA ribbed cardboard), and a box of matches. You will also need tools like cutting pliers, long nose pliers, roller, a pair of compasses, box cutter, and a glue gun (with glue stick, of course) to put them together.

Guy Made A Pretty Damn Powerful Glock 19 Out Of Cardboard

Yes. It is Glock 19, complete with functional magazine, and it totally shoots. Perhaps most importantly, it is made mostly out of cardboard. You may have already heard of it, but for some of us here, it was a revelation. A realization that materials as simple as cardboard, papers, rubber bands, could replicate a real working pistol. Just imagine if you work it with a 3D printer with more solid materials like ABS, or even metals. Man, you could easily made a gun right in your home. Of course, the process is not as simple. Personally, I thought of crafting one myself, using cardboard, of course, but looking through the 15 minutes plus video, it sure looks like it takes some sort of talent to put together one. Patience is prerequisite too, if I may add. Continue reading Guy Made A Pretty Damn Powerful Glock 19 Out Of Cardboard

How To Make A Functional Commando’s M202 FLASH-like Rocket Launcher

With a little ingenuity, pretty much anything can be turned into a weapon. Even cardboards – as proven by the incredibly talented YouTuber, The Q. The Q here is not quite the Q from Bond movies, but I am pretty sure if this dude is given the resources Q had in the movies, he will probably be as brilliant as the fictional Q, if not more brilliant. I am serious. Just take a look his portfolio. Tell me you aren’t a wee bit impressed. Many of The Q’s projects are crazy awesome, but this one here is the best in proving that cardboard can be dangerous too.
