prop replica

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.

Get excited! NECA showed off a sneak peek of their Half-Life Gravity Gun prop replica prototype, and they shared the news that they will be releasing the 1:1 scale replica in spring 2013. The only details to share so far is that it will be on display at the NY Toy Fair in February, and that it will be limited but more available than the Portal replicas. We’ll keep you updated!

In case you hadn’t heard, the University of Chicago Admissions Office received a bizarre package at the end of last week; it was addressed to Indiana Jones and contained a replica of Abner Ravenwood’s journal. They had no idea who sent it or why, and theories ranged from a student application to a personal gift that got mixed up in interdepartmental mail to the beginning of a sneaky marketing campaign for the next Indiana Jones film.

Alas, it was none of the above. It was simply a case of incorrectly routed mail.

eBay seller Paul Charfauros makes prop replicas of the journal from the movie and ships them all over the world from his home in Guam. He recently sent out a journal to Italy, but it never arrived. He was informed via a letter from the USPS that the package had been re-directed. It somehow fell out of its outer envelope in Hawaii and when the USPS saw the address for the University of Chicago, they fixed the zip code and sent it on its merry way. Given that the stamps on the inner package were fake, I’m surprised it got all the way through the system.

Charfauros donated the journal to university, and I can only hope it ends up in a display case with the accompanying story of how they received it.

QMx Insider has a gorgeous treat for you on Black Friday: a limited edition Mini Farnsworth Replica!

The prop is an exact re-creation of the communication device used on Warehouse 13; it’s just on a smaller scale. The 1:2 design is 2.5″ wide and includes every single detail. I would say it’s small enough to keep in your purse for emergency calls from the warehouse, but  a collectible this nice deserves to be on display instead of carried around.

It will be available only on Black Friday, and it’s limited to a run of 100 pieces. Jump online early that day to get yours.

See more photos of the replica after the break.
