    Has anyone tried to make these or have the originals?
    1) Laser Gun
    2) Vultan's Club
    3) Vultan's Remote Control (for the hovering platform)
    4) Golden Sword
    5) Ming's ring (to make women dance all sexy like.)

    I've got an original Laser rifle...

    It's one of the gold plated ones carried by Ming's guards. (excuse the crappy pics and the case... I ordered one with a black background and hooks to hold the gun, but got this instead... still waiting on a replacement)

    Anyone have any good pics of the big gun that Prince Baron takes off the tripod mount and uses? I always thought that was a cool gun.

    Flash - a-ah - he's a miracle
    Flash - a-ah - king of the impossible

    Great song. I miss Queen.

    Just a heads up the last time I was looking at the Propstore of London they had a screen used club that was the same as Vultan's club but painted gold.

    Hey there,

    If anyone gets the Profiles in History Hollywood Auction catalog, #24 has a good pic of Barin's laser cannon/rifle - I can scan & post pics when I get home. This same issue also has a hawkman sword, the executioner's drum, and Aura's epaulettes.

    Just realized, PIH has a website, here'e a link to a .pdf of the relevant pages in the catalog -

    http://204.200.196.80/pdf/A24_51-100.pdf

    Pages 63-65 for the Flash Gordon stuff.

    If anyone wants bigger scans, let me know.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    When I was a kid my dad did a plumbing job at the studio where they were filming Flash Gordon (Pinewood, I think). He came home with one of those huge cannons that the Hawkmen use, and a big fat book of original storyboards.

    Imagine my surprise when my mum threw both in the rubbish the moment I left home. Along with all my die-cast Gerry Anderson Toys, toy Daleks, action figures, the lot.

    Gotta love family :angry

    a klytus mask, or even the rings he wore would be pretty cool. the entire costume would be remarkably easy compared to something like mings wardrobe :)

    its on my top 10 "wanna own" replicas, sometime in my life, list :)

    The latex tree stump creature still exists somewhere. Either someone here posted a pic or it was in one of the auction catalogs, but I remember seeing it.

    There's a great Photo of it in an old Starlog, I think Martin Bower created it along with the Miniature Spaceships for the Film.

    If I find the Issue I'll let you know.

    The best Queen song was the Flash Gordon "theme" song. It was a great movie.

    Now you're talking crazy. Maybe the best Queen movie song was "Flash Gordon" but there are so many other really very well done Queen tunes.

    Back on track, Klytus mask all the way. He looks more like Doctor Doom than the FF movie version did.

    Hey Gang-

    Well there is some of it. I actually had to pull Klytus out of his box, I didnt have any pictures of him yet. He will get his own post once I take some studio pictures of him...he deserves his own post dont you think.

    The picture of me and the cool display case is me and part of my collection that is on loan to the Seattle Sci Fi museum. Better hurry its coming home in August to my basement.

    Anybody need reference or pictures feel free to hit me up.

    Oh- I forgot to mention...all that stuff in the last Profiels auction was mine. So sold some did not. I am kinda glad I am getting my Hawkman sword back. I have tons of rare pictures and art. I am working on my FlashGordon1980.com website currently.

    Nice Job Bob.

    Looks great all together. Had no idea how your collection has grown since our visit. the sci fi museum should name a wing after you.

    How about the PIH auction. 40,000. for you know what. WOW..

    Let's chat soon. Got a full size Huey from Silent running being built up at the moment. You know R2's illegitimate father. Love to get some tips on building and lighting it.

    Take care.

    That 40K PIH auction. I know crazy man. That was my helmet and pants and boots...I sold them to buy the Ajax. Not for no 40K. Go figure. I still have my Pack and am in process in getting replacement props for the rest.

    I have the Queen Flash Gordon soundtrack. That's the end of my collection.

    I also have a CD from a rock-a-billy band called War Rocket Ajax. Best band name EVER.

    I just got Klytus. I know there is another one out in the world, that seems like it is the hero one. It is hard to say what function mine had in the film. It has a movable jaw, but they put some kind of bondo a half inch thick on the inside of it to make it a solid piece. Maybe the "throw on the spikes" stunt version or the "oozing eyes" version. Who knows.

    I am currently in the planning stages of casting myself a "back up" copy in case this one gets damaged.

    That is some of the coolest stuff I have ever seen....

    Rocketbob - you need those two undershirts Flash wore - the one with the bolt and the other with the Hawkman symbol.

    If you guys ever get a chance to check out the Queen video for PLAY THE GAME Freddie Mercury wears the Flash shirt in the video

    Thanks gang. I am very proud of my collection. It is getting a bit large. I actually need to make it smaller. I look like a metalic gold arms dealer over here.

    I have been able to get some really wicked items over the last year that has really made my collection cool. The Tim Dalton, Barin vest is amazing, and currently my favorite item. Well maybe the Ajax.....well maybe the PigGuard.

    If anybody has any Flash leads, as always PLEASE let me know.
    Feel free to email me is you want high res pictures or any info on my stuff.

    A bit OT, but does anyone think a remake of Flash Gordon with new CGI would be a good thing? Or should the classic film be left alone?

    I wonder how well a "new" Flash film would fare at the box office? I know I'd pay to go see it :)

    I guess it's Hollywood legend that Lucas did "Star Wars" because Disney wouldn't give him "Flash Gordon"...

    That War Rocket Ajax is the coolest prop I've seen in a while. I LOVE that design. Thanks for sharing.
