So cool!

i would agree that the other revolver and wrench are preferable versus the original-looking versions, but either way this set is amazing. Very cool stuff man!

I managed to collect the weapons from Clue FX after scavenging my parents house as they are moving out.

Here is the main weapon display. That's the last of my hunt, for now.

I've updated my weapon collection.

I've got a wrench that looks close to the classic American depiction, and managed to avoid getting one with a wooden handle. :) It's large, and has a nice patina to it. Great condition.

I also got a real lead pipe. I managed to find a rare entry on Ebay of someone selling an industrial pipe from the 1900's. I got it, and discovered it was gigantic, like something you'd find in a factory. I spent the better part of an evening out in the cold, cutting it down to the size needed, and reshaping it.

Here they are with the other main six. I suppose if I found it to be too long, I could shorten one of the ends, but it's probably fine.

This is how the pipe originally looked like. Awkward to carry is putting it lightly.

Also, made this set of cards, using my weapons

Those look like genuine Clue cards! Amazing!
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I commend you on your proper revolver. It's staggering to me that it took so long to get the right kind of gun to represent the revolver label they used from day one. But I've never been a fan of the pepperbox revolver either.

Does a pepperbox even revolve? Or is the chamber stationary as it projects six bullets at a time? As far as I know, it's just a another pistol.

EDIT

Yes, it does appear to rotate in videos I've seen.
