THE WOLF MAN Larry Talbot Silver Wolfs Head Cane

Factory Entertainment’s THE WOLF MAN Larry Talbot’s Wolf’s Head Cane

Larry Talbot’s silver wolf’s head cane featured in both the 1941 werewolf horror film The Wolf Man and the 2010 remake The Wolfman (although in the latter the main character is named Lawrence and not Larry).

In the 1941 film the cane was a prominent feature of the film and was the very weapon used to kill the werewolves in the film. In the 2010 remake the cane is featured more as a homage to the original.

The original wolf’s head prop was created by special effects technician Ellis Berman. He made the wolf’s head out of cast rubber and painted it silver. Bob Burns, known for owning one of the largest collections of movie props in the world, started his collection with the original wolf’s head prop. You can read the full story of how Bob Burns came to take possession of the prop at Hollywood Lost and Found.

There are only a handful of prop replica’s of the original silver wolf’s head cane that are available to collectors and that have been based off of the original prop now owned by Bob Burns. Few, however, feature an actual silver wolf’s head. Most are designed to convey a silver appearance but use chrome plating to achieve the desired result.

Factory Entertainment are about to release a new prop replica that will also be adorned with a chrome-plated replica of the original wolf’s head (pictured at the start of this article). It’s a limited edition item of 400 pieces released under the Universal Monsters banner. The cane itself is made of solid wood and measures 38-inches long. It was made under the guidance Bob Burns himself. This version is due to arrive in December 2013. If you want to order one of those it’ll cost you $398.99. You can pre-order now via the link below:

Factory Entertainment Ltd Ed THE WOLF MAN Larry Talbot’s Cane Prop Replica (via Entertainment Earth)

In the 1990’s Wolfs Head Productions (Delbert Winans and Henry Alvarez) released three different limited edition versions that are now extremely rare. Here’s the original advert (via Universal Monster Army):

Wolfs Head Productions The Wolf Man Cane Prop replica

Wolf’s Head Productions THE WOLF MAN Larry Talbot’s Cane Prop Replica

The Wolf’s Head Productions versions were museum-quality level and came available in three different formats: bronze, silver-plated and sterling silver. So it is with great interest that one of these is available via a seller on Ebay right now for auction at a starting bid of $500. An image of the replica and a link to check it out are below:

Wolf’s Head Productions THE WOLF MAN Larry Talbot’s Cane Prop Replica (Ebay auction)

Interestingly, I notice the above replica is advertised as having a resin wolf’s head that is chrome-plated. The seller may be correct about that but I’m not entirely certain. I would have thought this was a bronze cast that has been plated. I could be wrong of course, so if you want to know for sure, I recommend a quick check with the seller before placing a bid.

If, however, you really want a silver plated replica of the cane then you can take a look at the Unique Canes silver plated replica. Their replica is advertised as “Quadruple Silver Plated using .999 Pure Silver” and is plated over heavy polished brass. It comes assembled on a Black Lacquer Solid Hardwood Shaft with both a chrome tip for display and steel reinforced rubber tip for actual use. Measures approximately 36″ length with a full size handle of 6.5″ x 1.5″ x 3.5″. 

Take a look at the Unique Canes version:

Note that the Unique Canes version is not an exact replica based off the original Ellis Berman sculpt. It is hand-crafted and so variations are apparent. It is, however, high quality and also practical, so that’s pretty damn cool. It’s also cheaper than the Factory Entertainment or Wolf’s Head Productions versions coming in with a Buy It Now of $349, so there’s that too. If you want one of these, the link you need for that is below:

Incidentally, the above cane from Unique Cane’s is a new version and not the same as their original releases a few years ago, which you can see showcased in this video:

There are also other cheap knock-off’s but let’s not talk about those.

Want to see the cane in the film? Grab the DVD at the link in the first line of this article or check out the original trailer. You an see the cane held at the 1:05 mark. Yes, it’s blurry, but its still very nostalgic.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Starfleet Phaser Replica (1)

Here’s a limited edition special Star Trek Into Darkness gift set that includes a Quantum Mechanix replica phaser.

If you’re wondering why I put a ? on the end of this title it’s because I’m not 100% certain that this is a Star Trek Into Darkness phaser replica. It might be although it looks exactly like the QMx replica phaser based on the stunt weapon used in J.J. Abrams’ 2009 film Star TrekIf so, that’s not a bad thing either since the same weapon is going for $100 on Ebay.

Or it might simply be the same design or extremely similar as used in the new film. Either way here’s a few more images:

MEN-IN-BLACK-II-Noisy-Cricket-Prop-Replica-Unobtanium

If you’re looking for a rare and elusive replica movie weapon this one is it.

It’s the Unobtainium manufactured limited edition Noisy Cricket from Men in Black II.

Unobtainium was a company started by industry insider professionals whose main aim was to bring only the highest quality movie prop replicas to the public. They obtained official licenses to release replicas from Men in Black II, Star Trek, Spiderman and more, yet despite their undeniable high quality work they ended up closing their doors and shutting down their operation.

Before they did go under they began work on producing a limited edition run of the Noisy Cricket gun, Agent J’s personal sidearm from MIB II. It was released in 2002.

The Noisy Cricket replia was to be a limited edition run of 2,500 pieces. Information is scant on how many pieces they actually produced. Some say only 250, others say in the area of 800. Consensus seems to be the truth is more in the 1,200-1,500 area. Either way, the result is the Unobtainium Noisy Cricket is now one of those high quality movie prop replicas that is considered rare and highly sought after by collectors and MIB fans alike.

Features of the Noisy Cricket:

  • life-size (modeled to the correct size of the weapon that appears in MIB II)
  • body is aluminium
  • grip is rubber
  • includes a working trigger that illuminates the cylinder and has a spring loaded hammer.
  • included a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) from Amblin Entertainment and Columbia Pictures
  • shipped with a clear lucite display stand and black mirror-finish display base 
  • numbered plaque
  • came in an original Unobtainium box decal
  • requires two CR1220 coin cell batteries
  • less than 1,500 believed to be in existence

MEN-IN-BLACK-II-Noisy-Cricket-Prop-Replica-Unobtanium

This is Unobtainium’s original sales blurb:

Working closely with the studio, our engineers were given access to the actual props used in the production of MIB II. Having a direct, hands-on study of that which was used on film has insured that each and every replica offered by Unobtainium Ltd. is a beautiful recreation of its screen-used counterpart.

Manufactured of high grade, computer-machined aluminium, each piece ships with a custom presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity.

The otherworldly green glow of the Cricket’s power core is activated with a simple pull of the trigger. Limited to a production of only 2,500 pieces world-wide.

This gun was the signature weapon of the ‘$1 million dollar per shot’ assassin, Francisco Scaramanga, who was played by Sir Christopher Lee. The Golden Gun was made up of seemingly innocuous separate elements including a cigarette lighter and pen that when combined created a deadly single shot handgun.

It’s one of the most iconic weapons featured in the Bond movies having been included in numerous James Bond video game releases.

Factory Entertainment went all out when they produced this after meticulous study and research of the original props in the EON archives as well as interviews with original cast and crew..

Features:

  • Life-size, 1:1 scale prop replica
  • officially licensed by Danjaq LLC and EON Productions
  • all metal machined construction
  • plated in 18 ct gold
  • can be assembled and disassembled into its component parts, exactly as per the original prop
  • comes with a high quality display base with numbered plaque, acrylic stand and acrylic cover.
  • includes a detailed prop story booklet
  • comes with certificate of authenticity
  • includes a set of ‘blueprint’ style instructions
  • limited edition of 1,000
  • supplied boxed in 007 presentation packaging suitable for archival or display

Component parts:

  • Fountain Pen – Forming the ‘barrel’ of the replica, the pen screws directly into the body of the lighter. Includes removable thread cap.
  • Lighter – With a hidden ‘slide out’ section the lighter forms the main body of the replica. The lighter ‘lid’ opens to reveal a breech chamber.
  • Cigarette Case – Open the end to create the handle and trigger housing of the replica
  • Cufflink – With sprung blades, the cufflink screws into the trigger housing to create the trigger which can be pulled.
  • Bullet – A replica bullet inscribed with the 007 legend that can be fitted into the ‘breech’ of the cigarette lighter or displayed separately.
