Life Size HALO 4 BR85HB Battle Rifle Prop Replica

Check out this amazing professionally constructed prop replica of the BR85 Heavy Barrel Battle Rifle as featured in the Halo 4 video game.

In the game the BR85HB (also referred to as the Service Rifle or the BR85HB SR) is a gas-operated, magazine-fed, semi-automatic rifle optimized for three-round burst firing.

This incredible replica is a hand made model of the battle/service rifle.

It is also a rare, one-of-a-kind exact full size replica that apparently took a detailed six months to create.

It features:

  • Game accurate paint scheme
  • Accurate markings and designations
  • Working charging handle with moving bolt
  • Removable magazine with ammo
  • Moving trigger and safety
  • Light-reactive ammo counter
  • Scope display screens

HALO 4 BR85HB Battle Rifle

Although a bit scant on production material detail, from the images this replica looks the goods big time! Definitely one for a serious Halo 4 replica weapon collector and a rare opportunity that is hard to look past.

The seller is asking $1,750 for it so when I say “serious collector” I mean it! 

You can snap it up for yourself or check out additional images of the rifle at the link below:

Master Replicas Star Wars ROTJ Force FX Green Luke Skywalker LightsaberL

If you’re looking for a replica of Luke Skywalker’s green Force FX lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi then you’ve really got two choices: the model produced by Hasbro which I posted here or the rarer Master Replicas version.

In terms of a comparison each version has their fan, mostly for very slight reasons. Perhaps most notably Hasbro’s version is the cheaper of the two and hence arguably provides the best replica for your money, while Master Replicas’ version will cost you more but is a little higher in production quality. 

Master Replicas also produced theirs first (and ceased production while Hasbro continue to produce theirs). If you can find one of the first release models by Master Replicas (referred to as version 1) you’ll find them to be quite pricey as they are now pretty much a rare collector’s item that is hard to find but highly sought after. 

As I write this post there is one of the original Master Replicas version 1’s available brand new on Ebay.

Here are the features of the one that’s available:

  • First release of a Master Replicas ROTJ Green Luke Skywalker ROTJ Lightsaber
  • Rare collectors item  
  • Stury glowing bright green polycarbonate blade (permanently attached to the hilt)
  • Authentic sound effects in-built (realistic power-up, power-down, idel, clash effects driven by motion sensors)
  • Durable metal hilt feels like a real lightsaber
  • Comes with display stand
  • No more are being made

Obviously these are rare so it’s great that, if you want one, you have your chance right now (while it lasts) to snap up the one that is available. The seller (who is based in the UK) is asking for approx US $1,012 but will consider offers.

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:

Wolfs-Head-Productions-The-Wolf-Man-Cane-Prop-replica

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: 

Unique Canes THE WOLF MAN Silver Wolf’s Head Cane Prop Replica (via Ebay)

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 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:

Okay, now this is one sweet Katana sword prop replica.

It’s a Master Cutlery manufactured limited edition high-carbon steel replica of Michonne’s katana from AMC’s The Walking Dead.

This is a limited edition replica of only 2,000 pieces.

Measures 42-inches long with a 27-inch long blade. Also features a genuine leather handle wraap.
