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.

What’s pretty special is that the seller is offering the custom version painted version on Ebay at a buy it now of only $32.95. That’s an absolute bargain given it not only looks like a metal weapon but that if you want to buy the original Hasbro toy it will cost you more than that. Just check out the original on Amazon to see for yourself.

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
  • Moving “Grenade Launcher” pump handle
  • 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.

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.
