If you’re a giant Destiny fan, and you wouldn’t be here if you weren’t, Guardian, then we have something fun for you. YouTuber ZaziNombies has built a replica of the Exotic hand cannon, Sunshot, completely out of LEGOs!
The gun is composed of roughly 550 bricks, including light bricks to provide the LED effect. It’s a replica of the weapon you receive in Destiny 2 by completing the Sacrilege campaign mission, and then speaking with NPC Asher Mir on IO.
ZaziNombies has over 1.2 million followers, largely due to his (unhealthy?) obsession with building LEGO versions of items from video games. Some examples include the rocket launcher from Team Fortress 2, Overwatch health packs, and many constructions from Minecraft. Check out his channel HERE.
He’s not alone. Check out this video from the Brickpodcast.com team chatting with Alex Niedra about some of his LEGO creations from Halo and Destiny. This conversation is from Brickworld Chicago 2015.
The LEGO version is obviously not available for sale, though LEGO competitor Mega Blocks has many Destiny offerings. We were fortunate enough to grab the San Diego Comic Con exclusive Ghost, complete with Lord Saladin mini-figure.
Do you own any of the Mega Blocks sets? Have you made your own Destiny items out of LEGOs or anything else? Share with us!
It’s the weekend, and Xur is back! I don’t know how you say “Happy Hour” in Agent of the Nine-ese, but we approve! Here’s what Xur has for sale this weekend, one of the few before the Destiny 2 beta drops in under 2 weeks.
Legacy engram [Helmet] – 29 Strange Coins
Eternal Warrior [Exotic Titan helmet] – 13 Strange Coins
Young Ahamkara’s Spine [Exotic Hunter gauntlets] – 13 Strange Coins
Ophidian Aspect [Exotic Warlock gauntlets] – 13 Strange Coins
Hawkmoon [Exotic hand cannon] – 23 Strange Coins
Three of Coins – 7 Strange Coins
Monte Carlo and Superspy [weapon bundle] – 30 Strange Coins, 25 Silver Dust
Zhalo Supercell and No Toy [weapon bundle] – 30 Strange Coins, 25 Silver Dust
Xur is finished his normal 9-5 job and has now shown up to work weekends selling Exotics. This time around, he’s chumming in the Reef. If you want to find him, do what religious folks recommend, Turn Right and Go Straight. (He’s down the stairs.)
Xur’s items for the week:
The Glasshouse (Titan Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
Young Ahamkara’s Spine (Hunter Gauntlets) -13 Strange Coins
Okay, I know it’s Summer Solstice and that joke didn’t even make sense, but when you get to chasing the Agent of the Nine every week, you get a little loopy. So, here we are with some summertime iced tea and chasing Exotics. Let’s see what Xur has for us this week!
This weekend, Xur is hanging out in the Tower, with his buddy, the Speaker (presumably for one of the last times ever). Here’s what he has available to Guardians.
Heart of the Praxic Fire (Warlock chest) – 13 Strange Coins
Monte Carlo (Auto rifle) – 23 Strange Coins
Legacy Engram (Body armour) – 29 Strange Coins
He also has these weapon bundles:
Monte Carlo and Royal Flush – 30 Strange Coins, 25 Silver Dust
Red Death and Steel Witch – 30 Strange Coins, 25 Silver Dust
Monte Carlo originated as a Playstation exclusive, and its featured power is that it grants quicker melee cool down. From what we’ve been reading, auto rifles may not be the #1 choice of all Guardians. Also, apparently, no one but me runs around punching everything. (After a long travel week, you can bet I’ll be doing that tonight!)
Thanks to the folks across the pond at The Sun for this week’s information.
Everybody’s workin’ for the weekend! (Quick, somebody photoshop me a bandana on the Agent of the Nine.) It’s Friday, and that means it’s TGIX: Thankful Guardians Interview Xur.
That’s not a thing. Scrub your eyeballs.
On with the show…Xur is back and here’s his location and what he’s hocking out of the back of his panel van this week. (That’s also not a thing). This week, the Agent of the Nine is in the Tower nightclub. So, belly up to the bar, pop some glimmer in the juke box, and enjoy Happy Hour (from the Tower).
Here are the Exotic Armors available this weekend (13 Strange Coins each):
Crest of Alpha Lupi chest piece for Titans
Mask of the Third Man helmet for Hunters
Skull of Dire Ahamkara helmet for Warlocks.
The Exotic Weapon is Hard Light, a fast-firing auto rifle whose bullets ricochet off of hard surfaces. (23 Strange Coins)
The Weapon Bundles are Monte Carlo auto rifle with the Superspy ornament, and the Red Death pulse rifle with the Steel Witch ornament.
Not a lot of love for this week’s inventory. Maybe Xur will have some better items for next week’s “School’s out for Summer” edition.
TGIX! Thank God it’s Xur? Doesn’t really have that sing-a-long ring to it, huh? Well, it’s Friday, and that means the Agent of the Nine is back with a new catalog of “what’s it gonna take for me to get you into this Exotic today?”
Specifically, Xur (who I believe matches the original concept art for Squidward on Spongebob Squarepants) is in the Tower. This time, he’s hanging with the Speaker, instead of downing a pint of … uh … you got me in a box, here. I have no idea what that dude would order.
Here’s the breakdown on the items available from Xur this weekend:
