My friend Nathaniel Holman once asked me: "What would Lord of the Rings be like with machine guns." Well hopefull I was able to answer that question. And hey, who doesn't like taking guys and giving them guns? *evil laughter*
About this creation
Frodo Baggins. He has an Uzi, so he can keep the black riders at a distance, and a blue lightsaber. Why? Well, not only does it glow blue when orcs are near; it glows blue...well...all the time. :)
And also, he has traded in his Mithril for sci-fi armor. It matches his black Uzi. :)
Sam. Being his overcautious self, if he were to have a machine gun, he would go for a 6 shot rotating barrel with an LED lazer sight. Just a little over the top.
And of course, a grenade, for the inner maniac inside us all. Everyone wishes they could chuck explosives around - especially hyper-sensitive Sam.
Merry. He has gone with a more suttle approach. He just chose a standard-cock and shoot .50 caliber rifle and revolver. He just wants practicality and precision. And some cool boom-sounds.
Pippin. Considering he is so mischevious, he dedied to go with a flame thrower. Calvin and Hobbes are always vying for one. And Pippin is the Calvin of LOTR. So I had to give him a big-boy-toy. Mwahaha!
Pippin also has a TNT flare on his back. After I strapped it on, I tried to image what Pippin would do with just one of those. I wished I hadn't.
Another shot of the flame-thrower. SO COOL!
Gimli Earthmover. I figured a dwarf would skip all the fancy guns and just go for the biggest amount of boom. So I guess a cool hair-cut, a pack of dynamite and a sub-atomic rocket launcher would do the trick; don't you?
Legolas, with his AK-47 and blaster pistol. He just likes amazing guns, and prefers the presicion of a gun over the brawn of a flame-thrower or bazooka.
A better shot of the AK and the lazer sight. Imagine how deadly Legolas would be with one of these babies. LOTR would be OVER!
Aragorn has two launchers. One shoots kerosene, and one shoots fire. His big thing is taking out Orcs in big numbers. Boo Yah!
His Kerosene and Fire canisters. The chord then leads to the launchers which shoot a burning funnel of madness!
Boromir, or otherwise known as: BOOMamir. He prefers to carry a heavy bazooka and two atomic warheads. Big time boom-age.
Gandalf, with a grenade and a cattle-prong. What is a cattle-prong good for? Zapping unsuspecting orc buts so they can all run into a little circle. Then chuck the grenade, and voila! Dead Meat!
well if LOTR did have machine guns, the books wouldn't go past the prologue, so considering your imagination from my idea for the story that somehow continued though everyone was blown to tiny pieces, you did good. 5/5
HA HAHA!!!! I've been waiting for this. Love Gimli's hair! Very funny! I originally asked Nathan what he thought Greek mythology would be like with nuclear weapons. That was hilarious on Friday at lunch! You should do the last alliance of men and elves like we talked about!
