This is the RPG - Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher.
I set out to model a Panzerfaust from WW2, and quickly realized that without a grip for the minifig to hold, it would have looked very goofy. So, I opted to couple an oversized warhead of the modern RPG7, coupled with the simple sight of the Panzerfaust. I like it. :)
I designed it in a CAD program, and had an ABS plastic injection mold made. The mold can produce these in ABS plastic - just like Lego does.
HEY WILL! I didn't know you had a MOCPAGES site! Oh, and I finished your Brickarms movie. I just got a MXL 990 Mic and still need to do the voices. I'f you'd like to see some of my creations, you can click on the link above. And this is a awesome RPG I own about 10 of them and use them all the time! Luke
one thing though, to add the historical accuracy, place the handgrip on the top, panzerfaust are held under the arm pit
Reply to Stewart:
It says Panzerfaust!
And if you look at a panzerfaust pic, it has the sights like you see on the top of the lego version here, second, the RPG7 has a cone shaped exhaust, which the pazerfaust does not have. please learn you weapons. :) (Not to be mean or anything)
Second, Will, its totaly a panzerfaust, the panzerfaust has an oversized warhead too.
Reply to Will,
good question, you can turn the minifigs hand upsidedown so it can hold the faust upsidedown
