I finished the shape and design of the Los Pollos Hermanos cup,
I used a McDonald's large cup as the base. Now I just need longer paper or to find a place that can print it for me.

Remember to use a black top if you are being season 4 accurate.

I have done some searching for a black lid but I haven't found one yet.
I have to say curse you Vince Gilligan for making the props either expensive or hard to find. Joking aside though, the props on this show really do look great. I don't think a transparent lid would have looked right.
If worst came to worst and I couldn't find a lid, I would be alright with displaying it without one like in the evidence photo.

Looking great, hope you put some of these up for sale once complete! Keep us updated. I have a few new items on the way, will post pics once I get them all.
Jul 29, 2012, 5:53 AM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
Absolutely. I am wondering if I should offer a finished version as well as a cut out version that people can just glue onto their own cup. The finished version would be a couple of dollars more plus extra shipping for needing to use a box.
Be sure to post photos of your collection!
Jul 29, 2012, 6:05 AM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
Can't you spray paint the lids black? Will look just as good.
Jul 29, 2012, 12:37 PM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
First off - looks great! Cant wait to get one!
The lids are thick black plastic - I know I've eaten at a place (places) multiple times that use these... I'll have to start keeping my eyes open (might have been a place called Baja Fresh).
EDIT: Baja Fresh cups do have black lids but not the kind you need. But I know I have seen the right kind somewhere...

Id be down for either but I can see why you'd want to offer both since the cup itself would need larger packing.
Ill post some pics of my collection in a few days once new items arrive

Cool collection! I really love the press books, the season 3 and 5 ones have such great cover artwork.

Did anyone already identify the exact hat? Is it the Bollos collection one?
Aug 4, 2012, 11:04 AM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
Damn, that is an great collection! Signed hat of course tops everything. Where do you get these press books? They're awesome!
Aug 5, 2012, 11:14 AM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
Figured as much. That's awesome you got them! Thanks for sharing. I'll keep my eye out on ebay. The photos are really cool. The Season 3 pic with the skull is amazing!! I would love to have that has a poster.

The season 2 press book is quite large, probably similar sized to the season 1 press book and it uses the same photo from the dvd/bluray.
I just did a test print for the Los Pollos Hermanos cup and I am convinced they used the black lids to hide any imperfections that are around the rim. They are going to be a huge pain but I am going to try my best to get them right.

TAG Heuer Monaco CAW2111, retails for $4500

That is such a cool watch but I will have to be happy with my calculator watch although I suppose there is replicas.

I did a few tweaks to the Los Pollos Hermanos cup shape and I am very close, I was having issues with there being a gap under the lip of the cup which has been fixed.
The masking tape visible in that photo was used to splice 2 pieces of paper together because a regular sheet of paper was slightly too short.
I just need to add 2mm to the bottom of the cup and I should be ready to have these printed with the gradient background.

If you guys don't have Hecubus' cigarette pack you are missing out. Just got in on his new run and they are perfect. The design, construction and quality are perfect.

Aug 15, 2012, 6:55 PM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
Don't forget @Hecubus114's matchboxes. Got mine today, less than a week to travel around the world, couldn't recommend them more, they look great!
@great1 Coming along nicely, I'll be adding that cup to my next order with you!
@LukeM nice find, amazon wish list updated..
Aug 20, 2012, 7:02 PM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
Hey great1, how's the progress with the cup coming along? Thought I'd check in for a update
Aug 21, 2012, 1:08 PM - Re: Breaking Bad Props
I'm working on replicating a bottle of Zafiro Aņejo. Pretty much done. What do you guys think? The next step would be making the gift box. That'll have to wait awhile. Credit goes to Hecubus114 for finding these bottles. Thanks!
