Pre-Ordering opens for ManMelter Raygun - Xoanon @ 21:18 PST
Weta Limited will open the ManMelter Raygun for pre-ordering exclusively to their VIP clients this Friday 13 July. The Raygun, officially titled the ManMelter 3600ZX Sub-Atomic Disintegrator Pistol, is the third Raygun to be released for pre-ordering from the ‘Weta Originals’ limited edition series.

The lightest of the initial three Rayguns from the series, what the ManMelter lacks in weight, it makes up for in its gadgets and technical wizardry. The compressor valve on its rear makes a charming 'thunk' sound when used.

The Manmelter case contains various doo-hickeys and tools, among these are Phlogiston canisters. Unfortunately the Phlogiston has not survived the rigours of time and all that is left is its telltale blue residue, left over from missions past.

The ManMelter is a limited edition piece, with only 500 made worldwide. Each ManMelter comes with a velvet lined pressed tin case, which also doubles as a display stand for the Raygun. The ManMelter is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and an assortment of implements and crafting tools.

The ManMelter can be pre-ordered by VIP members from Friday 13 July, and general public seven days later, on Friday 20 July, by visiting
