Adam Savage’s ZF-1 Prop Is Complete

The Fifth Element is one of my favorite movies of all time, because it’s a love letter to the kind of SciFi stories you’d see in an issue of Metal Hurlant / Heavy Metal magazine, and because it has a great cast, including Gary Oldman’s Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg, and his wonderful multi-purpose armament, the ZF-1 Pod Weapons System.

A weapon so iconic, in fact, that noted prop artist/mythbuster/all around cool guy Adam Savage took a crack at making his own replica, a project years in the making, and I have to say the finished product looks pretty darn great. The original ZF-1 was built around a blank-firing AKS-74U; long story short Adam’s isn’t, but it’s still really cool.
