Sidearm:Deckard’s pistol from Blade Runner has it all: the bulky outline, the tiny red LEDs and that distinctive noise. The only downside seems to be that it’s a revolver with only six shots. Better make ‘em count.
Main weapon: The M41A pulse rifle is carried by the USCM corps (United States Colonial Marines) from James Cameron’s Aliens. It’s a brutish looking thing that fires 10mm caseless ammo, and if the light armour piercing rounds aren’t doing it for you then there’s always the pump action grenade launcher. Just watch out for the acid splash from those Xenomorphs.
Around town: The Tumbler from Batman Begins is a tad conspicuous, so instead I’ll opt for Kaneda’s bike from Akira. Probably one of the most fetishized objects in all of anime. Weirdly almost nothing is known about the bike except that it has "ceramic, double-rotor two-wheel drive, computer-controlled anti-lock brakes,” and churns out “12,000 rpms". Honourable mention to the new Light Cyles from Tron: Legacy, which are beautiful.
Wardrobe: One of the many fun aspects of Halo: Reach (on the Xbox 360), was customizing your Spartan armour and buying upgrades. I was always a big fan of the more streamlined ODST (orbital drop shock troopers) armour. Beautifully designed, the ODST armour looks like an outfit we could see real life soldiers wearing in a decade or two. The heads up display in the faceplate is a neat feature and has the benefit of infra green night vision.
Up in the air: Do you remember that moment in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace where you were filled with hope and wonder. Sure you do, it was before Anakin or Jar-jar turned up. In fact, it was the moment the Republic Cruiser blazed across the screen, making ready to dock with the Trade Federation. And it comes in my favourite colour too. What’s not to like?
What would you take? Is the Millennium Falcon more your speed? Are the Elven cloaks from LOTR your ideal attire? Your imagination (and the depths of your Geek knowledge) are the limit.
