My 2 year old Daughter is a mad Despicable Me fan. We were recently watching the third film which had a throw-back 80s villain antagonist.

Lots of references to the 80's throughout the in particular, but this one stood out to me

Looks a little like a certain M41a Pulse Rifle.....



Not the first time the iconic design has been referenced in Pop Culture however...

Yes you Archer!

Though of a Bullpup design the other similarities of this weapon are unmistakably an Aliens reference, most notably the context of the particular episode.


On another note, here is a cool firing replica of an M41a

Here are some Aliens references from a video game for what it's worth:

Contra III on Super Nintendo had all kinds of Alien inspiration in the graphics.

Actually, I think the 41A is basically an Uzi- a 9mm spray and pray weapon.

I saw that rifle in Ready Player One as well.
