Not interested in shelling out hundreds and hundreds of dollars for a top-notch Blade Runner blaster replica? How about 1,296 yen (US$11.90)? Apparently, that’s how much the Takagi Type M2019 WaterBlaster will retail for in Japan when it arrives this June. [click to continue…]

I think NECA was on to something when they decided to start making massive foam prop replicas. Just think of the novelty cosplay appeal of tiny Thor and Batman. [click to continue…]

First 4 Figures has created a life-size Majora’s Mask replica that would certainly be a showpiece for a fan of The Legend Of Zelda. But it’s only the beginning. [click to continue…]

You’re looking at a 1:1 replica of the massive M56 Smart Gun carried by Vasquez and Drake in Aliens. It’s officially licensed, detailed and 48″ long. It also comes with a themed tabletop display stand.

Sure it’s a “little” expensive, but can you really put a price on being a badass and saving the world from xenomorphs? [click to continue…]

zorg

Four years ago we posted a video of Adam Savage in the midst of building a replica of the Zorg ZF-1 blaster from The Fifth Element. It was actually the fifth replica project he worked on over the course of the past 17 years.

Needless to say, this prop is one of Adam’s obsessions—but now he can put it to rest. The prop has been completed and all of the details are there. Like ALL of them. Take a closer look in the video below. [click to continue…]

Even if you have no idea what Gantz is, you have to admit that this scale replica of the Gantz:o X-Gun is spectacular. Priced at 39,960 yen (or $383), it will be released this coming March in Japan. But wait until you see what it can do… [click to continue…]

vigo stargate

When Belgium’s Musée royal de Mariemont decided to create an exhibition called “From Stargate to Comics: Egyptian Gods In Geek Culture”, the very first thing they were going to need was a life-size Stargate portal. Duh.

Since it’s not the sort of thing that’s just lying around, they approached 3D-printing studio Vigo Universal to craft a 20-foot tall replica. When all was said and done, the project took over 1,000 working hours to complete, and involved 3D printing 2,000 separate parts with 10,000 cuttings. Check out the video below to see how it was made. [click to continue…]

NECA is about to release life-size foam facehugger that features a bendable tail. It’s perfect for anyone that really wanted to turn their home into a xenomorph breeding ground (because who wouldn’t), but lacks the funds and/or space to purchase the full egg and facehugger set.

No pricing information has been announced, but the replica is expected to go on sale sometime this summer.

Take a closer look below.

at-st

A Star Wars superfan built his very own AT-ST – those mini-walkers seen on the forests of Endor in Return of the Jedi – in his backyard. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a build like this, but it’s by far the best.

The walker was spotted by a “Mr. Kernish” who noticed it in the distance when he was doing some work nearby. He took photos then followed up with video showing off the thing. The person who built it prefers not to be named, but it’s a surprisingly robust build, complete with moving turrets, sound effects and a remarkably detailed interior.

So, let’s put all of this into perspective. Apparently, some anonymous genius decided to build a stunning, life-size AT-ST in his backyard, and never planned to tell the Internet about it. He did it solely for his own amusement. Hard to believe in this day and age.

Check out the original photos and the follow-up videos below.
