Hundreds of Vintage Ray Gun Pictures

It's a well-known secret that everyone here at the Isotope loves the atomic world of the retro-future. Each and every member of the staff has a deep appreciation for the floating space cars of yesteryear's tomorrow, Wally Wood's astro vixens, futuristic skyscrapers of stainless steel, and the dashing space heroes in the classic Buck Rogers mold. And thanks to Andy Diggle and Pascal Ferry we get to enjoy it all over again in the pulp-infused Adam Strange series from DC Comics.

But more than anything, we here at the Isotope love the ray guns.

So here on The Isotope Communique we're going to show our appreciation for Justin Pinchot's amazing website dedicated to the beautiful toy ray guns of yesteryear. This comprehensive website is loaded with information on the history of space toys and ray guns, the companies that manufactured them, the cultural significance of space toys in America and beyond, and hundreds of photos of rare vintage ray guns from the 1930's to today. Simply beyond glorious.

And while you're looking at ray guns, check out Jared Guenther's stunning Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow prop replica gun. A beauty not to be missed!
