prop replica

Phaser 1

TV remotes just leveled up into a whole new universe of cool thanks to ThinkGeek and their new Star Trek: The Original Series Phaser Universal Remote Control. From the press release:

This exceptionally accurate and highly detailed working replica will be revealed at San Diego Comic Con on July 23 and can be experienced first-hand at ThinkGeek’s booth (#3849).

Created from meticulous 3D scans of the last known hero prop from the original Star Trek series, the Phaser Universal Remote Control is a fully functional gesture-based universal remote control suitable for controlling many home entertainment systems and other IR controlled devices.

Seamlessly blending functionality and perfect form, the 1:1 scale Phaser is equipped with 10 authentic phaser firing sounds, tactile force-feedback, a customizable personal lock code, and can store up to 36 remote commands.

Yep. you can finally use a phaser to turn the TV on and off and make pew pew noises with an actual phaser instead of your boring remote. (Well, I don’t know if you do that, but I know I do.)

The Star Trek: The Original Series Phaser Universal Remote Control will be available at ThinkGeek.com beginning early November 2014.

We’ve got a great rundown on the features and info on this beauty, so head after the jump to see more.

I want to say something really cool and meaningful about this Tomenosuke Blade Runner Blaster replica, but all I can manage is “OMG BLADE RUNNER BLASTER! WANT!” because Rick Deckard’s blaster has always been one of those Holy Grail prop replicas for me. The more I learn about it, the more amazing I think it is.

I’ve actually had the opportunity to look at one of these up close and personal and I can tell you that, while $900 is pricy, this replica really is a work of art. From the weight to the tiny details, it’s simply amazing.

This is also your last chance to get it. As creator Tomenosuke wrote on his blog, “This is it for the Tomenosuke Blaster PRO Retailer Edition, and there will be no further new or revised molds. In other words, this is the final form we arrived at.”

It comes in both a kit version and the full pro replica and is limited to 50 pieces worldwide.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

ghostbusters wand

When there’s something strange in your neighborhood, you only have one choice: strap on a proton pack and get to work vanquishing spirits. Luckily, Mattel’s released a replica of the Ghostbusters Neutrino Wand to help you with your hunting and capturing. They worked with Sony Entertainment to get all the details right and it has vibrations, kickback, light meter animations, and an extending tip with lights. Plus, sound effects right from the film! In other words: it’s fancy and awesome.

See the wand in action (not the ghost trapping kind) in the video after the break.

These Pokéballs are definitely not toys. They’re prop replicas that light up around the edge of the ring button and come in two different finishes. You can have one that looks clean and pretty or go for the one with a little battle wear. The 3″ steel-wrapped acrylic balls are also available in a variety of colors so you can choose the one that best fits your training style.

Season two of Man at Arms is at an end, and master swordsmith Tony Swatton is sending it out with a bang by crafting a giant freaking sword. He makes a replica of Cloud’s Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII – it’s over 6 feet long and 12 inches wide! As Swatton puts it, the weapon is “redonkulus.”

See how he crafts the impressive sword in the video after the break.

Gears of War HammerBurst Gun  Regular 2

You know what your shelf needs? A Gears of War 3 Hammerburst replica! And it’s not just any old collectible, it’s a highly detailed and gorgeous prop. This is so much more than a toy. It’s three feet long (!) and weighs 35 pounds. The gun is hand-finished, hand-painted, and limited to a run of 500. If you’re thinking about getting one, I’d buy it now.

If the realistic look isn’t for you, you can also get the gigantic Hammerburst replica in gold.

Drool over more pictures after the break.

First of all, war hammer is not a euphemism.

Now that we have that out of the way, take a gander at this stunning prop by Valyrian Steel! King Robert Baratheon’s weapon of choice was a war hammer, and it was a beast. The weapon was forged specifically for him, and the King carried it in battle and eventually killed Rhaegar Targaryen with it.

This officially licensed A Song of Ice and Fire prop has been crafted from steel, metal, leather, and lots of sweat. It’s 44″ and weighs a whopping 10lbs. Only 2,000 war hammers will be made and each one will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by George R. R. Martin. It should go without saying, but the war hammer is not a toy.

See more photos and a video demonstration of the hammer in action after the break.

Do you want to own a Star Trek: The Next Generation prop replica that is sure to be noticed? Then you need a Ressikan flute!

Captain Picard played the instrument in the episode “The Inner Light,” and this replica is a 1:1 scale copy. It’s handcrafted by writer of the show Morgan Grendel and comes in a case ready for display. It doesn’t seem to be playable, so it’s mostly just for show. You could walk around pretending to play it though, no one would judge you!

Watch a clip after the break showing the flute in the series.

If you are a collector and wealthy fan of Doctor Who, you should give this artisan replica of River Song’s sonic screwdriver a second look. The sonic was made for QMx by Doctor Who prop maker Nick Robatto. He built the entire piece by hand:

  • Is made entirely by hand by Mr. Robatto himself. Most of the parts were machined by hand — none were CNC’d; it is constructed exactly like the screen-used hero prop.
  • Consists of approximately 70 components, most of them made of aluminum, brass, resin, nylon and polymethyl methacrylate.
  • Features a crackle paint similar to that used on the 10th’s Doctor’s Sonic. However, the crackle is a bit larger and the color deeper and darker to reflect the age of River Song’s Sonic.
  • Takes two weeks to assemble.
  • Contains no found objects, with the exception of screws and electronic components. All other parts are handmade.
  • Measures about 6.89 inches (175 mm) long.

It looks gorgeous, and the sonic comes in a replica of River’s diary. The edition is limited to 15 pieces. Check out the link below to sign up for the waiting list to pre-order in Q1 2013. I wouldn’t hesitate either, since the Doctor’s version sold out quickly.
