Earn 0.74 Weta Dollars! What's this?

Welcome to the world of Dr. Grordbort! From the mind of Weta Workshop Senior Concept Designer and Magic Leap Game Designer Greg Broadmore comes a retro sci-fi universe of interplanetary misadventures, dextrous atomic manipulations, and rayguns…lots of rayguns.

Dimensions: 6.88" x 10.43" x 0.31" (W x H x D) 17.5 cm x 26.5 cm x 0.8 cm

Weight: 0.88 lbs (0.4 kg)

Dr Grordbort's 32 page catalogue reveals a world where chivalry is not dead, advertising is beautiful, and rayguns look too pretty to be lethal.

Written and illustrated by Weta Workshop conceptual designer Greg Broadmore, the directory showcases dozens of arcane inventions, contraptions and weaponry.

The stars of the show are, of course, Dr. Grordbort's Infallible Aether Oscillators, but you will also find the shiniest new bifurnilizers, metal man servants and automated travel loungers.

Also included for your entertainment and scientific education is a compartmentalised picture story (some call them comics) of the world famous naturalist, Lord Cockswain.

Fantastic nonsense! Or as Dr Grordbort himself might say, 'absolute balderdash.' And what fun!

Dr Grordbort's Contrapulatronic Dingus Directory

The fictional universe that (barely) contains Dr Grordbort's Infallible Aether Oscillators is the brainchild of Weta Workshop Concept Designer Greg Broadmore. It all started as a series of drawings and acrylic paintings that Greg made. Richard Taylor and Greg conceived the idea to bring these fantastical weapons to the unsuspecting public and the first three Rayguns saw the light of day in 2007. Since then, Greg and Weta Workshop have released a cosmic cornucopia of books, artwork and rayguns both miniature and full-sized, to keep your interplanetary enemies at bay.
