Attention:
Painting a super-soaker gold and gluing on a few gears does not make it steampunk.

3) My favourite Steampunk Comic.

4) A Cyberpunk Link for anyone interested in Steampunks uglier cousin. ;)

If there was one with "Acme" engraved on the side, it would have made my day.

Is it just me that found the way the whole thing was written a little unbearable to read? I just get the image of some irritating 13 year old trying to sound in the know and mystical or something.

Pretty cool "weapons" considering they`re pretty much all just modded Super Soakers. And since when could guns just fire lasers and particles etc just if you imagine hard enough?

Steampunk styles and retrofuturism are always fun.

That made me miss one of my favorite steampunk shows called "The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne". It lasted all of one season, but it was way cool and way fun, plus the writers knew how to tell a story.

I love steampunk anything.

I once set up a DnD campaign with a Steampunk/Ancient Egyptian empire as a major player. Great fun.

Actually Steampunk and future DO fit, its just called Cyberpunk not Steampunk, and typically involves some sort of dystopian future.

Steampunk = Castle in the Sky, The Prestige, League of Extraordinary Gents

Cyberpunk = Matrix, 12 Monkeys, Blade Runner

I`m not a stickler for these things, but if the term is available, might as well use it! Great post though. Love me some weapons!

I always love the marriage of antique styling and futuristic technology.

These all make me think of Firefly... which then makes me sad.

steampunk and futute don`t fit... steampunk is BEFORE our time when they really used steam powered engines to do everything ( like driving cars and so on) .. yes they use steam today too like to power generators in nuclear plants and in many other places.. but the "steam age" was before our time..

Kind of disappointing, so many of these look like toys painted over ang glued with useless stuff on them, they look cool, yes, but could be so much more! Nerf guns and squirt guns remodelled just don`t hit it for me

Do this weapons do anything besides being cheesy? A wrist gun would be awesome if it certainly shoot something.
