Go Find Some Explosive Barrels With the Gravity Gun from Half-Life 2

Time to take your Gordon Freeman costume to the next level. Ditch the crowbar and step up to the Gravity Gun, fresh out of Black Mesa East.

Or straight from the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA), which was responsible for the creation of this painstaking replica of the Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator, better known as the Gravity Gun. You can tell from the official-sounding name that NECA is serious about making these sorts of things. In case you’re in doubt, NECA is assuring everyone that their replica is spot-on, based on data from Half-Life 2 that was actually supplied by Valve. You will need three C batteries to power it, though. That power will grant you orange LED lights and four sound effects from the game. Activating the gravity part would require a Xen crystal, presumably. Good luck finding one. Maybe you can check Radio Shack.

The Half-Life 2 Gravity Gun replica is selling now from ToyWiz for about $150. It’s limited to one per person, and you can’t use any special discount codes or coupons on this one. Right now, it’s only available for pre-order, with shipments scheduled for April. But, that’s not too long to wait for the premier Half-Life 2 weapon, and what will surely be one of the highlights of Half-Life 3.

I’m sorry, that was a terrible joke. I’m disappointed in myself. We can only hope that someday, Valve boss Gabe Newell really does learn how to count to three. Someday.
