Crazy 4 Cult 3D Art Show is sci-fi fan-tastic

IN WHAT is becoming a regular feature here on ScyfiLove, we return again to art lovers’ corner to gaze in wonder at this piece of brilliance from Tim Doyle, called The Secret Weapon.

It has been created for the Crazy 4 Cult 3-D art show, where 100 artists pay tribute to classic or cult films – you can check it out in the flesh if you’re near Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles.

Why doesn’t my local art gallery show stuff like this? And how many can you name? (I’ve had a go in inviso-text below – highlight it after you’ve had a go and see if we can name them all.)

The glaive from Krull, Dirty Harry’s Magnum, a Ghostbusters proton pack, the mechanical owl from Clash of the Titans (name?), Robocop’s gun, the Man With the Golden Gun’s gun, James Bond’s Walther PPK, Han Solo’s blaster, a lightsaber, Lion-O’s sword from Thundercats, Inigo Montoya’s sword from The Princess Bride, Deckard’s gun from Blade Runner, a Star Trek phaser, the one ring, Jason’s mask, the Holy Grail from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, a Predator mask, Tron’s disc, Johnny Five’s head, a thermal detonator and lightsaber training droid, Odd Job’s hat, Ash’s chainsaw, Old Painless from Predator, a Pulse Rifle from Aliens, Batman’s grapple gun.

A few I have no clue on – the red pack at the bottom of the picture, a couple of swords and knives, the boxing glove, the gas canister and the old looking gun on the right. Any help?

And thanks go to the excellent Live For Films blog for the heads up.
