The Hacksmith teamed up with maker JT of Built IRL to create a real world version of Spider-Man’s web shooters. The rig uses compressed air to fire custom-made grappling hooks from its wearer’s wrists. Swinging from them isn’t nearly as graceful Peter Parker made it look.
THE BEST Replicas
Weapon replica maker Blackfish shows us how he used a wide variety of plastic medical syringes and a whole lot of glue to create a working replica of an M4A1 rifle. After pumping it up with air, it fires Airsoft BBs with quite some power. If you want to build your own, he’s provided templates for the design here.
Prop builder Odin Makes shows off one of his coolest and complex projects yet, a replica of the famed gravity gun from Half-Life 2. He based his design on a 3D digital model, then printed templates to create plastic and foam parts. More than 15 years after the game’s release, it’s still one of our favorite weapons ever.
Maker Jairus of All built an impressive replica of the Broadsider, a weapon from Fallout 76 that’s basically naval cannon you can carry around. The PVC weapon can actually fire, which he tested out in this video. If you’ve got the time to spare, check out the build video series here. Also, how many times did he say “stoichiometric?”
LaserGadgets likes to build all sorts of cool prop weaponry using lasers. For this custom-commissioned build, he created a Militech handgun that looks like it came straight out of the CD Projekt Red RPG Cyberpunk 2077. The hefty replica has LED illumination, and a bright blue laser that’s powerful enough to burst balloons.
On a recent episode of his series Savage Builds, Adam Savage decided to see if he could replicate the functionality of the awesome 6-in-1 weapon known as the Zorg Industries ZF-1 from The Fifth Element. Here, he shows off the finished build. You’ll need to tune in to see it in action though.

Prop maker David Guyton made a replica of Iron Man’s Nano Gauntlet from Avengers: Endgame. Rather than cheap materials, he built it out of steel, brass, and glass. But he will upload a template on his website so you can make it out of different materials if you want.
Save the universe with Hasbro Legends Series‘ wearable replica of the power gauntlet that Tony Stark built in Avengers: Endgame. The 19.5″ long gauntlet has articulated fingers that can be locked into a fist for display, and six infinity stones with pulsating lighting effects.
Originally released all the way back in 1876 by Andrew Dougherty, these classic playing were the first known cards to feature a dragon back. They also have a unique “triplicate” feature – a tiny card icon in the corners of each card, verifying its suit and value. Choose from red or blue backs.

The Hacksmith takes on Tony Stark’s lifesaving device with his latest build. This impressive arc reactor replica uses ionized plasma to achieve its electrified effect. It looks spectacular, but it’s terribly loud, and there’s no way we’d strap this thing to our chest.
