Ok, This instructble is going to be quick and easy. I'm guessing that a good bit of you all have seen the preview
for the new movie Cowboys & Aliens if not here is a link to the trailer. Ok, now those who just watched the trailer and are getting over the initial shock of the actual idea of a Cowboy vs. Aliens movie welcome back. Now remember that awesome little wrist/gauntlet weapon our main character had?! Good cause this instructible is going to show you how to get your hands...wrist around one.

Step 1: I'm thirsty lets take a break.

Yep,  just started this instructable and we are all ready taking a break.... hey, when you working a 8 class schedual and working on instructables you need a little time for yourself so go down to your local 7-11 and get yourself a Slurpee. Now that your at 7-11 and oh look they have a promo slurpee cup from the movie Cowboy and Aliens. Yeah, thats right, that's the one you have to buy its around 7 bucks + what ever your tax rate is ( .6% down here in SC )anyways, make sure its the cup with that looks like the gauntlet.

Steps to take:

pay for it

Tell the clerk have a Good One


Drink Slurpee (But not too fast or brain freeze or go ahead if your into that kinda of stuff)

i am selling them too, with the cup already removed.
what country can u get the cups from?
I am in the US.
Ebay would be your best bet now that the promo is over.
I have a video on this at<br>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFR9rRyNJzg
its a shame that there arent anymore 7-11s in south carolina anymore.
I snagged mine on ebay for about 15$ shipped as there are only a couple of 7-11's around here and you honestly couldn't pay me to go to those neighborhoods.<br>
That's true but there are a few knock off versions of it where the sings look exactly the same but you know there is something shady going on.
Wow that thing was a pain to get off, now I have to go pick up a clasp and hinge as my giant hand didn't want to fit through haha.
Cool thanks! Put that in the instructable, because &quot;carefully remove cup&quot; are not complete instructions. Sweet. Cant wait to play with this thing.
How the HECK did you get the piece off the cup??? I bought this thing weeks ago thinking I could make a plaything out of the gauntlet too, but the damn thing doesnt come out of the cup. I sat there with a butterknife and tried to slip it into the space between the cup and the gauntlet. The cup cracked in like 10 places, yet I still cant get the danged thing off.
The cup is connected with a peg-hole system. The fold has to be far enough down to get all the pegs. Sliced off the bottom of the cup you could use a small saw or a dremel and you even have to cut close to the gauntlet. You are just making the cup easier to collapse by removing the base. <br><br>Then make your fold/crease at the end of the blue word slurpee, (opposite the lights so not to risk catching the wires) push in the top and squeeze a few times to get it started. Then take a long screwdriver and gently work it all thru the cup at that spot. Set it down on your work space and just gently push down/inward on the screwdriver to collapse/fold the plastic cup in on itself the entire length. Then grab the black piece with the vice grips or a pair of pliers and it will easily come out.
Sweet I'm ready to take a break and I just woke up...
