Ultimate blaster built from classic sci-fi guns: Can you ID all 26?

French director Jean-Luc Godard said, "All you need for a movie is a girl and a gun." But when it comes to sci-fi, we can't just have any gun. We need ray guns, blasters and disrupters, not to mention a phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range.

And so graphic designer Ian Leino has taken 26 of the best of them and used them to build the ultimate sci-fi gun.

Leino has created an awesome design based on 26 different weapons from 26 different movies and TV shows, which he's printed onto stickers and a nifty t-shirt. And if you're a weapons expert with a keen eye, you could win one as a prize. (Yes, it's not the bestest prize ever, but the t-shirt is pretty darned nifty.)

Here's how it works: Just email Leino with the list of shows where the blasters appear.

The first 10 people who get all 26 correct will win a free sticker! After the first 10 winners, I'll pick one more winner every day for TWO WEEKS, for a total of 24 sticker winners. Also, everyone who enters will be eligible to win a free shirt which I'll give away on March 31st.

He's even provided a hint: one of the guns comes from anime, and another from a cartoon. Of course, if you're off the mark, he'll just sell you one for $19.

Remember, hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side—and no match for a cool t-shirt.
