Atop the Fourth Wall, Linkara's Magic Gun
replica movie prop weapon
"There was once a little girl who lived in a town with her mother and father. She loved her parents, but they worshiped a great and powerful god, a god they loved more than their daughter."
As we progress into the 21st century, we find that we take more and more entertainment from internet based programming. This has of course brought rise to a new wave of "internet celebrities" of sorts. Among them we have Lewis Lovhaug AKA Linkara from the show Atop the 4th Wall. For people not familiar with Linkara, he is on the web site "That Guy With The Glasses" made famous by the Nostalgia Critic, Spoony, Angry Joe, Todd in the Shadows and many MANY other reviewers. In the show Linkara reviews comic books, which sounds like it should be boring but is remarkably insightful and very entertaining with ongoing story lines of Linkara fighting the forces of evil as Earths defender against such enemies as Doctor Insano, Spoony’s other (sort of) evil personality. In order to fight evil, he employs many weapons and equipment including magical based weapons along side technological ones. One item is his signature weapon, the Magic Gun.
"When the girl turned 13, her parents explained why she had been born - to be tormented until she was drained of her essence, so that a powerful weapon could be forged from it. A weapon that would be used to purge the nonbelievers from the earth."
Not much history is known about the gun at first but during a series of reviews for Halloween it was revealed that a cruel couple who worship an evil god of chaos bore a daughter who loved her parents very much. Unfortunately they only conceived her so they could sacrifice her to their god to create a powerful weapon. The idea was that the gun would be used to fight evil and the sacrifice of the girl's soul would provide it's power but due to the actual evil nature of the procedure nearly all the members of the cult were killed and the gun lost. Years later upon finding it Linkara formed a friendship with the soul of then girl who used the power of the gun to instead fight evil with it. Eventually the soul of the sacrificed girl and Linkara formed a bond of friendship.
"When the Parents of the Year attempted to take the finished weapon, now powered by the soul of their tormented daughter, it burned them. They were plunged into nightmares too horrible to describe before finally descending into madness and death."
The gun itself is a Denix replica of a 17th-18th century German Flintlock and is made of a decent quality tin metal and actual hard wood. Denix replicas, as well known, are decent quality and have been used in many movies including the end scene of Predator 2 where the Lost Clan Elder Predator gives a flintlock to Danny Glover's character.
