    I was just wondering if there were any "The Life Aquatic" props out there?

    Something like the Zissou ring or mabye the posters that he signs at the beginning of the film? I've seen the red hat on Ebay that has the traffic light on it, but it doesnt seem to be like the one used in the movie.

    Post some pics if ya got anything. Thanks in Advance.

    Resurrecting an old thread...

    I just printed and framed the three Zissou movie posters that can be found from the Criterion DVD release. The quality was ok at best, so I was wondering if anybody has seen better quality versions around?

    Belafonte replica is one my 'holy grails' :) Apart from building it myself (highly unlikely), acquiring that might be quite impossible.

    I am almost done with BELAFONTE model -- I picked up a Revell Calypso boat which looks 90% close to what was used in the film -- in fact, when Steve Zissou holds up small model of Belafonte in the movie, I believe it is the actual Revell Calypso and hasn't even been modified structurally except for paint job. Almost done except for some detail work and custom decals -- I'll post pics of it soon -- not too hard to build, but they are hard to come by -- check ebay from time to time -- they go for $30 to $60 depending on condition of kit.

    I am also painting up some ADVENTURE PEOPLE figures from the 1970's -- in LIFE AQUATIC you can see several "Team Zissou" action figures next to TV set on boat as the crew watches some old Zissou videos. I'll post pics of those soon.

    The only other props I can think of worth mentioning (that haven't already been mentioned) would be the ring, which darth is doing, and perhaps the stationary Steve gives to Ned "Kinglsey" Plimpton when he joins the team.

    If anyone does a run of the Steve Zissou posters, I would be in for those!

    AJ -- where did you get the posters? Did you print them from the DVD somehow??? Very cool.

    That's cool, can't wait for the pictures! I was also thinking about modifying a Calypso kit. You just used pictures from the movie as reference?

    I just grabbed the images from the DVD using print screen and pasted it to Photoshop. The resolution is only good for A4 printing, but it's better than nothing. Maybe with some further editing, they could be improved.


    For a talented builder, this would be very nice I think:

    Cross-section poster from the Belafonte would also be nice.

    Was any official Zissou merchandise ever released?
