GarE Maxton's amazing Intimidator puzzle would make Scaramanga proud (video)
We have Make to thank for bringing this wonderful hunk of metal to our attention, a 40lb puzzle created by GarE Maxton and shown to the world at large about a month ago. It's called the Intimidator Puzzle Pistol and it starts out as 125 pieces hand-machined that fit together in only one way (shown disassembled after the break). Once assembled you need a special magnetic key to take it apart again and, probably, few hours. Inside is something of a special prize... something a lot cooler than anybody ever found in the bottom of a Cracker Jack box: a pistol. Well, the pieces of a pieces, anyway, a .45 caliber handgun with your choice of iron or laser sights (both included). The resulting weapon bears more than a passing resemblance to Scaramanga's piece in The Man with the Golden Gun. Unlike that model this one does not break down into a lighter and cufflinks, but we prefer puzzles to jewelry anyway. You can see it all demonstrated after the break, but sadly there is only a single such puzzle in existence at the moment: GarE's one indisputable masterpiece.
