A copy of the review I wrote of the Righteous Bison – Indivisible Particle Smasher 😉
Being armed with a Righteous Bison – Indivisible Particle Smasher (hereafter referred to as a RBIPS ;-)) is a strange feeling, unlike a standard ballistics weapon which is essentially a dead lump in your hand, the RBIPS feels different from the moment you pick it up, almost as if it is part of you. Flick the safety/power switch (located on either side for your convenience) and you’ll feel it come to life in your hand with a subtle click and almost imperceptible hum which quickly fades into silence. My first adventure with the RBIPS was in our back garden, I did not want to zap someone by accident, just knowing it was there at my side was comfort and I soon found myself not just walking but strutting around the garden, taking idle pot shots at passing trees and bushes.
Putting aside the silliness of playing in the garden, this really is the first ray gun I’ve been up close to real or otherwise and I did not know quite what to expect. Removing it from the box the first thing you notice is the packaging has been well designed (or perhaps as an ex-designer packaging is something I notice more that others). Flip the lid and beneath you can see the RBIPS underneath a clear plastic cutout of the weapon, which means if you are that way inclined you don’t even have to open the box if you don’t want to. Not taking it out of the box would be a shame though, it feels nice in the hand, something that makes you realize that not only was it designed to look the part it was designed to feel the part too – attention to detail is something that I can appreciate.
This ray gun really would appeal to so many people, and for the size 10.4” x 15.7” x 3.1” (H x W x D) weighing in at 2.6lbs this is seriously good value for money, have a look at WETA’s site for details on how to buy your very own Righteous Bison – Indivisible Particle Smasher.
Next time I’ll review Dr. Grordbort’s : Victorious Mongoose – Miniature Version, well if I ever find it again 🙂
