THE WALKING DEAD Fully Functional Live-Blade Replica of Michonnes Katana

Master Cutlery’s high carbon steel prop replica of Michonne’s katana from The Walking Dead is pretty sweet but it’s not a touch on this replica.

This version is a hand-forged, fully functioning replica of her iconic sword.

The blade is Damascus steel forged to 1060 steel (folded forged 13 times / 8000 layers). It is also hand sharpened using over 12 steps (different grade grind stones) to the point where it is fully capable of cutting through thick bamboo.

The color is also produced with a special oxidation process which is solid and won’t peel off even with use.

The guard is made of copper.

The handle is wood covered in a real shark skin wrap. The shark skin is then wrapped silk wrap.

The scabbard is wood and leather.

Note: The stand in the images doesn’t come with the sword (as if Michonne carries around a stand!).

At a price of only $192.75 (price may change but that’s the price as I write this), this is an absolute bargain for such a high quality collectible.

This is seriously one of if not the best replica of Michonne’s The Walking Dead sword as seen on TV.

The Dark Knight Mini Mine Bat Bomb Prop Replica

Here’s a life-size replica of the mini-mine (aka the “Bat Bomb”) as featured in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.

This is a replica of the coolest bat bomb to be featured on screen. There was a version in Batman and Robin but they were not nearly as compact and nicely designed as the Batman Begins version (which got ranked 12th in Complex’s Top 50 Coolest Batman Gadgets).

Replica details:

  • Mini-mine (safe)
  • Cast in pewter alloy, air-spray matte black (Ø380mm)
  • Red transparent dome (2mm), 13 individual magnets (2*5mm)
  • Black glossy acrylic stand (145*97*4.8mm), metal printed plaque (135*87*0.8mm)

Here’s an image of the weapon in the film Batman Begins:

The only drawback with this item is that the magnets need to be glued on and you have to do it yourself. Nothing a cheap tube of superglue and 15 minutes of your time won’t resolve.

Price to buy one of these replicas is $75. Find it at the link below:

Battlestar Galactica Blaster Prop Replica

Check out this rare prop replica of the Battlestar Galactica season one standard-issue Colonial sidearm that’s gone up for auction on Ebay.

That’s the Syfy series and not the original 1970′s/80′s BSG.

From the seller:

This Season 1 GALACTICA BLASTER is a highly-detailed, expertly-crafted prop replica. It is brand new, straight from the shop, and has not been displayed or previously owned. This is not a typical solid prop. It is cast in several separate components, which allow an unmatched level of detail. The body of the blaster is a two-part clamshell which bolts over a solid resin replica revolver (exactly as it was done for the show). The use of aluminum-filled resin allows for extremely realistic weathering. The grip panels are separate and bolt on just like the originals. The woodgrain on the grips is cast into the resin for a durable and authentic appearance. The side switches are cast metal for added durability. The piece is cast in aluminum-filled urethane resin. This prop is not based on an Airsoft and has NO MOVING PARTS.  The entire unit weighs just under a pound.

Take a look at an image of the weapon as seen in the actual Syfy series:

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Season 1 Blaster

If you think this looks similar to the Blade Runner blaster you’d be right. The standard-issue Colonial sidearm was based on the Blade Runner blaster. You can learn more about the weapon on the BSG Wiki and on the IMFDB.

The auction is currently up to $175 and only has one day to go. 

Head to Ebay if you want a shot at owning this for yourself.
