I was an extra in the film. The remote was really cool. Its cool to see how much goes into just making such a small prop that you wouldn't think takes so much work, effort and even money to produce. It's probably not at the top of my list to have a replica of, but having a throw away from the film would be nice, just for stories. Its not every day you get to be on the set and see a cool prop like that.
Last I heard most Prop-Shops destroy that stuff not throw it away. Although I KNOW some do, because I've gone through the trash in my day and found some pretty cool stuff that turned out to be something.
