Lorenzo di Bonaventura: G.I. Joe v Transformers film “a possibility”

image

Hasbro’s Transformers and G.I. Joe franchises have a long history of bumping into each other. The G1 cartoon often hinted that the two shows shared a universe, and 1987 saw the publication of the first “G.I Joe and the Transformers” crossover series from Marvel. Since then we’ve seen several meetups in the comics and a handful of crossover toys from Hasbro. Could fans hope to seen see Optimus and…

Hoping to get some time this weekend to start my next project - turning this old power drill into a 1950s sci-fi raygun! After all the great feedback I got on the Zydrate gun I made for @666zydratevials I’ve decided to try making myself a sweet raygun.

The first step will be to crack the drill open and gut the inner workings (this thing is bloody heavy as-is) and we’ll go from there. I’m thinking a glossy black paint job with gold chrome accents. Thoughts?

Finished up the Zydrate gun yesterday. Really, really, REALLY happy with how this turned out. It’s not identical to the one in the film, but close enough for me (and the gal it ended up going to).

The artificial sinew wrap on the handle was a very last-minute change, but I think it ended up looking 100x better than the leather strap I had been planning to use would’ve. The Zydrate in the little glass vial is Aqua-Velva aftershave, and the injector tip is made from a modified soldering iron tip.
