Minecraft foam sword

This 1:1 scale replica from the outstanding Mass Effect 3 has been masterfully crafted and painted to give an accurate representation of its in-game counterpart. Sure it might not fire anything per se, but if looks could kill, you’d be king of the slaughter house for sure.

Gears of War ‘Team Metal’ Lancer replica

Modelled from the actual 3D data used by Epic in Gears of War 3, this hand-painted lancer gun replica measures in at a whopping 3ft in length and features trigger activated machine gun sounds.

Sure this feathery red fellow may seem rather angry, but that won’t stop us from squeezing his portly 16in plushy figure. Suitable for stress relieving hugs or lobbing at enemies, this non-lethal avian weapon should nicely supplement your Angry Birds addiction long after you’ve run your battery dry from over-playing once again.
