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

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.

Nerf Vortex Proton Blaster

Normally I never post a weapon that isn’t a replica from a movie, TV series, video game or comic. But today I’m breaking my own rule because after staring in amazement at the images of this modified Nerf vortex proton blaster I just had to post it.

If you didn’t know, Nerf is a toy brand owned by Hasbro that produces mostly foam based toy weaponry. Those toys are made of plastic and they fire foam bullets. You can find them on Amazon .

In the following image you can see a comparison of the original toy versus what it now looks like thanks to some incredible professional custom modification work:

Custom-Nerf-Vortex-Proton-Blaster

Seriously, that’s just outright amazing. If you didn’t see the toy in the first place you’d have absolutely no idea that this isn’t a full metal weapon.

The seller refers to this as the ‘Blade Runner’ special custom heavy metal version. It features a brushed metal weathered look derived from 4 coats of paint and a matte finish to protect the paint. 

Like the original toy this gun can still fire Nerf foam discs, 3 of which are included.

The workmanship is clearly studio grade judging by the images and as claimed in the product listing. Interestingly, the seller states the pictures don’t do the blaster justice and that most buyers are more impressed by the real-life prop than by these images. If that’s true then this is certainly an impressive weapon to add to your sci-fi weapon collection. It’s a toy made for firing too, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be used for cosplay or even LARP.

At only $39.99 it’s a mere $20 more than the standard retail price of the toy which blows my mind.

Star Wars Return of the Jedi Biker Scout Blaster Prop Replica

Check out this brilliant looking life-size prop replica of the Biker Scout’s blaster as featured in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

This is a 1:1 scale high quality filled resin replica of the original Biker Scout blaster made for the film by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). 

Many weapons in Star Wars were made from existing guns that ILM modified into sci-fi blasters. This one was an exception where ILM created the weapon as a custom single piece with a British made “Singlepoint Scope” mounted on the right side using half of a Webley scope ring. 

The artisans at Modelers or Mice have gone out of their way to replicate the original weapon just as ILM envisioned it, although in this case the entire gun is sculpted (no external attachments). That makes this weapon replica a screen accurate weapon to ILM’s vision rathre than a replica of the original on set prop which, in my view, is perfect.

STAR WARS Biker Scout Blaster

This is definitely the kind of replica Star Wars fans should jump on, not only because it’s very accurate to the screen used weapon but also because the Biker Scout’s blaster is not typically an easy replica weapon to find.

$97 is the price being asked as a Buy it Now direct from the artisans own Ebay store:

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:

It comes packaged with a pre-order of the Star Trek Into Darkness 3D Blu-ray – amazing to see this up for sale already given the film was only just released in theaters.
