    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    Here it is: Took me an hour to find. It fires blanks, but somehow I don't think it the real deal on further inspection. It doesn't look like a Bullpup... And the muzzle flash doesn't emmit light on the guy. Its fake... Also, in regards to Blomkamp. He directed the Halo: Landfall shorts, so it...

    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    Thanks Deadalus. I have only just started my design course up in Auckland, so I kinda got a long way to go before I start sending in my portfolio. Also in regards to that email I sent to Weta, they haven't replied at all. I think it's fair to say that they can't answer the question due to...

    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    @I am Fuzzy Bear- The earthquake was in Christchurch, WETA is located in Wellington so there nothing to worry 'bout there. @Deadalus Thorn- Can you put a word in for me??? I hope to join Weta Workshop in 13 years time after I get my Bachelor of Design and 10 years experience.

    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    I've emailed Weta before, asking them about their entry qualification requirements, and they replied within 2 weeks. It may be possible that Weta are not allowed to divulge this sort of information due to existing contracts with Bungie and Mountain Dew (You heard right, Weta are supplying MD...

    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    Still no reply... They must either be avoiding the question, or have to find out themselves lol.

    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    Knowing them, they wont reply for a while. And often they are bound by contracts to keep things secret... But hopefully they might tell to an Uber fan such as me!

    Polystyrene Plasma Rifle and M6c

    @Akademee- My pistol broke so I cant test any sort of coating on it. Bondo might prove too heavy, not to mention expensive. I work on a $0 budget lol. @got armour- Not at present. I just had an idea to make a mould using plaster then cast using expanding foam. I can't sell them though since...

    Buck's Combat Knife- Wood Build

    I prefer to not paint my creations. They look better as wood. If i get round to making casts (on a really low budget) I might paint them. I accidentally sat on it yesterday and cracked the blade where it slides into the hilt.... almost screamed...

    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    Yea, Weta have expert craftsmen. For the props used in Lord of the Rings series and Narnia they hand forged/crafted for the main characters and for extras used casts. As for Landfall they got blueprints and schematics from bungie and handcrafted the originals out of High density foams or...

    The WETA helmet - Where is it now?

    I believe they are still at Weta Workshop's Warehouse in Miramar, Wellington, New Zealand. I can remember there being a fire there last year though... possibly they were destroyed or severely burnt. But I'm sure they would still have the original moulds. -Did you know that Weta Handcrafts...
