It’s Cool And All, But The Price…

The Pomson 6000 Sub Atomic Wave Gun is yet another wonderful addition to the line of Dr. Grordbort’s Infallible Aether Oscillators courtesy of the fine, creative minds at Weta. If features a urethane resin and metal construction, articulated triggers, levers and switches, a custom built stand, certificate of authenticity and a limited edition art print, provided you’re the possessor of one of the first nine Pomsons. There’s just one problem: it’s freaking expensive! The Wave Gun is neat, and the available colors are pretty spiffy, but it takes a Hell of a lot of neat-n-spiffy to justify spending thousands of dollars on a non-functioning firearm, especially a fictional one. However, if you happen to be a model wave gun enthusiast, have the cash, and don’t mind plunking down a $1000 non-refundable deposit, then the Pomson 6000 can be yours for the low, low price of $4000-7000. If I had that kind of scratch lying around, I’d spend it on real firearms, but that’s just me.

    You would be surprised. These are aimed at rich 30 and 40-somethings with more money than sense – the sort of customer that might also buy a movie prop or prop replica like WETA’s own District 9 series. They are essentially pieces of art, albeit ‘low art’. Art of the collectible type costs money. The other reason, I would guess, is the low volume. It will cost them a fair amount to develop and build these, and in the numbers they will sell, they will need to have high prices.
