They have some cool steam punk computers.

Last Exile was a great steam punk styled anime, I need to watch that series again now that I think about it.

WOW! That Nerf gun looks like a really cheesy toy before the "steampunk" treatment. The paint job really transforms it.

We had toys that kids can't buy today, like yard darts.

Here's a toy from the 60's that could blow out an eardrum from about 30 foot away.


Here's one in mint condition on ebay selling for $2495.

Check out this forum site. There's tons of info on how to mod different Nerf guns so they can perform much better. There's a bunch of pics too.
