Unfortunately this was the only tag on the wallet:

One sided “Made in Taiwan/100% nylon”

I just saw this one on Amazon U.S.

Same as mine minus the picture holder bit.

I made the frame myself. I used modeling clay to make the detailed sections and moulded them. Then I used polyurethane resin to pour individual pieces so I can make more. Its a standard picture frame and I made the raised edging and stained it to match.
Looks good. It's very tough to find an accurate picture frame that doesn't cost $130+.

Wow Odean, that looks awesome.

I’d love to add the Goonies ticket, Kiss ticket, and Library cards to my wallet if you share them. They’re very cool (y)

I was having a look around for some of the bits and pieces that went into the wallet and I discovered that the Library Card, Pepsi voucher, School ID and a few other items seem to have been around for a while. Anyone know who made them or is that just something that's "out there"?

Hey guys. I've long admired the work shown in this thread. I had a graphic idea I was curious if anyone here wanted to tackle, and searching the thread doesn't turn up any prior work. It's not really a paper prop per se, so I hope it's still on topic.

As some of you may know, there's a prop that appears in 2015 Marty's den on the coffee table.

It's a toy electronics game that was first created for the movie Robocop. It's the Nukem board game from the in-movie commercial:


It also showed up on Star Trek: The Next Generation in the episode The Dauphin:

This was a rental item from Modern Props. Apparently they sold it a few years ago, because here's an auction listing:


Description:
1598. RoboCop working “Nuke ‘Em” game (also seen in Back to the Future II). (Universal, 1989) Futuristic electronic game board and integral display modeled on the Battle Ship board game measuring a total of 24 x 24 x 15.25 in. Each side of the board consists of 2 x 2 in. squares imprinted with map coordinates, with the squares set upon an under-lit surface of illuminating red panels. The game board measures 18.5 x 7 in. A double-sided plexiglass over acetate world map display partition measuring 18.5 x 10 in. bisects the game board. Red pin lights illuminate in areas of the display map when any of the four buttons on each corner of the game board are depressed.

So, I was wondering if any of you here would find this interesting enough to create facsimiles of the screen graphic and the button labels. Maybe between BTTF, Star Trek, and Robocop we can inspire someone to recreate this prop!

I'm sure that world map must have been a commonly available image from the time. I did some searching and found lots of similar, but not quite exact, examples. Maybe someone here will have better luck. Thanks!

If no one is interested in making graphics, that's fine, but perhaps someone can help me identify the correct map graphic?

I am trying to recreate the opening of Back to the Future. I can’t find a full layout of Doc’s clocks. If there are any photos of where everything goes, please tell me.

This is the only image I‘ve seen, but it only shows half of the layout

Thanks
