Combustible Lemon Launcher by TheLoneRedSheep Combustible Lemon Launcher by TheLoneRedSheep
Hello investors, Cave Johnson here.

As I am sure you are aware of, I had my engineers working on producing a combustible lemon. Through recent and potentially revolutionary advancements in laser technology, we have been able to convert the insides of any organic object into pure kerosene. I decided to use this discovery for the noblest of purposes: to burn life's house down.

That's right folks, introducing the consumer version of our newest fire-starting product: The Aperture Laboratories Combustible Lemon Launcher. Now, we aren't banging rocks together over here; we know how to scramble an object's molecular structure. This handheld, break-action launcher of combustible lemons is sure to light up anyone's day - literally! Load a lemon in the compartment, squeeze the trigger, and watch as the igniters set it ablaze as it hurtles toward your enemy. Inspiring stuff. Don't have any spare matches? It can light grills too (Warning: extreme risk of melting; do not attempt unless grill is made out of tungsten). The Combustible Lemon Launcher comes complete with a debatably ergonomically designed handle, a frontal grip, one of two kinds of colored LEDs- for your viewing pleasure, and a three-lemon starter pack (due to preservation issues, the launcher no longer comes with lemons), so just make those checks out to cash, send that to us, and we'll box it up and send it right to your doorstep.

Cave Johnson- we're done here.


Update: New version.

Lol, I get the reference, it's when he says  "When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your D*** lemons, what the h*** am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!" in Portal 2.

That's awesome! I like the little pore details on the lemons and the neat shading~ But... honestly, shouldn't he have invented something that uses the acid properties in lemons or the fact you can use it as a battery....?

One of the fine folks at the Facepunch TF2 Emporium has taken your concept and made an in-game replica!
Here's the original post, with the download: [link]
Be sure to thank him if you happen to have a facepunch account!

I actually follow the Emporium, myself, and I thanked him on the next page (under the username Toastador). I quoted his model and my design and combined that with a nice happy face. Granted, I'm not sure whether or not he knew I was the designer.

Keeping it in character.
Sort of like different macs look very similar.

Granted, it is too similar looking, but that can be altered.

No, they arn't. Combustible lemons are lemons that can catch on fire. EXPLOSIVE lemons are lemons that can explode.
Reply
:icondannythehybrid:

they both involve small explosions

An explosion is different from something that can be set on fire. Would you say wood is explosive? No! But it is combustible. So this is Pyro's item.
