Screen Used DEEP SPACE NINE & STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION Phaser Rifle

Here’s an actual, screen used prop that any Star Trek fan will salivate over.

This weapon was used on set in Star Trek: The Next Generation during the Borg episode ‘Descent Part 1′. It was also used in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The current owner, who is selling it, says:

I bought it from Next Gen’s Property Master on one of my set visits. It was the day they filmed inside the Borg “hall” for the 6th season’s cliffhangar “Decent part 1″. I saw this being used right in front of me, and when I went to lunch with the P.M. we worked out the deal and when I left that day, I left with the prop.

Features:

  • Made of hard rubber
  • Has a green tinted plastic screen for the flip up sight (sight appears to be glued in place and does not flip up).
  • Has 2 holes drilled in top (used to attach a sling which does not come with the prop)
  • Has a working “trigger” button
  • Comes with a Letter of Authenticity (LOA) detailing the history of the prop (including its appearance on DS9)

In terms of condition this one is good except for numerous paint cracks and chips. The paint is enamel and has cracked and chipped over time. Still, you could also restore it fully to look like its former on-set glory!

The seller has put it up for sale as he needs the cash, so this is one of those lucky breaks for a Star Trek collector or movie prop collector.

Price is $2,800 but the seller will entertain an offer – so if you want it, head to the link below to make one.

Warehouse 13 Tesla Prop Steampunk Raygun

On one hand I hate Warehouse 13 as I think its popularity was probably the reason Eureka got cancelled. On the other hand I love it for all the nods it hands out to the late but great Nikola Tesla.

One of those nods is the aptly named Tesla gun – an electrically based steampunk style raygun used by Warehouse 13 agents (because bullets are so yesterday). That and it has the bonus side effect of erasing your short-term memory.

If you want a Tesla gun you can always opt for the kit version. But if you want it already fully assembled and, for that matter, if you want the best replica of this gun there is, then there’s no question that the limited edition Tesla Artisan Hero Prop is your huckleberry.

It’s a limited edition of only 500 pieces worldwide and it’s pure awesome.

Features:

  • Hand-built from more than 70 parts 
  • Screen-accurate to the original TV prop (most parts digitally modeled from the original prop by Kenney’s Custom Props whose credits include weapon props for shows like Battlestar Galactica and Fringe)
  • Precise modeling based on laser scans and computer-aided design
  • Custom handmade acrylic cylinders for the vacuum tubes
  • A baked-on black chrome finish that creates a mirror effect on the end caps of the vacuum tubes
  • Custom-coiled springs and hand-coiled copper tubing
  • Custom-cast Bakelite knob
  • Comes with a hand-rubbed zebrawood base and graceful brass pedestal
  • Carefully wrapped in canvas and packed in a handmade wooden crate

If you want it you’ll have to hurry. These are not easy to find and will set your bank account back a little when you do find one, but right now if you want one you’re in luck via the link below (while it lasts):

WATERWORLD Smoker Rifle Prop Replica

In 1995 director Kevin Reynolds gave the world the sci-fi blockbuster Waterworld. 

Well, it was meant to be a blockbuster but sadly for Reynolds and star Kevin Costner it only pulled in $264 million worldwide from a massive $175 million budget (which really was massive for its day). Despite earning (gross) more than its budget it was still a giant financial failure. One of the biggest in its day.

That said, some people still loved the film and so I’m sure there’ll be a die-hard Waterworld fan or movie prop collector out there who will jump at the chance to own one of the actual set used weapons.

Right now on Ebay a seller is giving you the chance to do just that by selling an original screen used Smoker Rifle, a weapon used by ‘Smokers’ who in the film are the bad-ass sea pirates.

The image above is the actual prop for sale.

I don’t know a great deal about the Smoker Rifle. I can’t find any images of it on the net. I don’t have it in me to watch the film again to try and find a scene that I can screenshot. I also can’t find a record of this weapon on the IMFDB’s Waterworld page. So for all intents and purposes I know nothing about this.

But here’s a summary of what the seller has to say:

  • The gun is made out of hard rubber with heavy wire inside.
  • Measures 33 inches in length x 6 inches from base to top x 2 inches thick. 
  • Is in very good “Screen Used” condition.
  • Originally obtained from the famous Ellis FX Company. Still has it’s sticker on it from auction that Ellis FX company had.
  • Comes complete with Lettter of Authenticity from the famous Ellis FX Company.

The seller wants $499.99 for this prop but is willing to entertain offers. I say make one. While I haven’t verified authenticity myself, the seller is Reel Art and they are reputable vendors.

One of the coolest magical weapons featured in film has to be the Elder Wand from the Harry Potter series of films.

Although also known as the Deathstick, the Wand of Destiny, the Eldruhn Wand, the Ellhorn Wand, and also as one of the Deathly Hallows, the Elder Wand is probably most well known as Dumbledore’s Wand.

What is surprising is finding an authentic replica of Dumbledore’s Elder Wand isn’t as easy as you’d first expect, mainly because most of the replica’s that are out there don’t look quite like the wand as featured in the film, despite claiming that they are exact replicas. And, of course, some of them are just toys.

If you’re looking for a decent replica that isn’t a toy, then first of all you want to make sure it matches the look of the wand seen in the film. The image below will help with that.

HARRY POTTER Elder Wand Replica

The best one’s to my view are the replicas that come straight from Olivander’s in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando. There they call it ‘Professor Dumbledore Collectible Hero Wand’ but true Harry Potter fans know what it’s really called.

Check out the Universal Studios Elder Wand replica:

Professor Dumbledore Elder Wand Prop Replica

 

Universal’s version is sculpted in resin and measures 15.75 inches long. Wand box as pictured is also included.

The best price I can find on these is $41.97 via Ebay (brand new with free postage in the US). That’s around $8 cheaper than the next best price and even $150 cheaper than what I’ve seen these going for from some vendors. 

If you want one at that price follow the link below: 

HARRY POTTER Dumbledore’s Elder Wand Prop Replica (Universal Studios) via Ebay

The next best replica comes from The Noble Collection: 

Dumbledores Elder Wand by Noble Collection

Made of resin, Noble Collection’s version is 15 inches long (almost 3/4 inch shorter than Universals replica) but comes complete with a replica of the wand box as featured in the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

You can actually get these for only $35 from Amazon at the link below: 

Dumbledore’s Elder Wand Replica (Noble Collection) via Amazon

Neither of these replicas are toys – they are legitimate replica’s designed to be showcased in a serious Harry Potter wand collection.

Limited Edition HCG Exclusive ALIENS M41a Colonial Space Marines Pulse Rifle Prop Replica

This is the Hollywood Collectibles Group (HCG) produced exclusive olive drab (OD) Aliens Hero Pulse rifle.

Only 250 of these were produced and all completely sold out.

I love the look of this rifle having been a fan of James Cameron’s Aliens for, like, ever.

Features:

  • Aluminum Shrouds the same dimensions as the original “Hero” Pulse Rifle.
  • Metal retractable shoulder stock
  • Metal barrel vent
  • Removable magazine
  • Light up LED counter display – sets at “95” when the magazine is inserted

  • Themed wall display plaque
  • Accurate Olive Drab Green colored shrouds

Watch a video (not of the actual prop for sale but of the actual production edition):

As stated in the video, HCG’s replica is considered to have a few flaws that are more annoyances than anything else, but as a display piece it is still a really great replica pulse rifle.

The price is perhaps a bit hefty at $1,200 but these aren’t easy to find so it’s doubtful you’ll find another HCG limited piece at a cheaper price.  

Note that this OD version has exactly the same features as the “Brown Bess” version. The only difference is the color and that it is limited to 250 pieces.
