Ready your man-melters and infallible aether oscillators! It's time to crush the Venusian heathens once and for all. Weta Workshop released a new animated promo for Dr. Grordbort's amazing steampunk rayguns and other super-advanced tools of space Empire.

We already loved Greg Broadmore's bizarre worldbuilding and fantastic toys, but after watching this video we're now convinced that the saga of Dr. Grordbort and Lord Cockswain needs to be a full-length movie, or maybe an animated TV series. The amount of wrongness that could ensue would be mind-boggling. And lovely. [Thanks Jeffrey!]
