    This flick looks chalk-full of cool new toys. The Holy Shotgun. The thing that holds the dragon's breath. All sorts of cool things.

    So, anybobody got pictures or leads or ideas? Anyone?

    Haven't heard a thing about this movie until saw the promos.

    Based on a comic book, right?

    Just saw the commercial again, you mean the shotgun in the shape of the cross?

    If you mean dragons breath in that, I recall reading about actual shotgun shells called Dragonsbreath that fires a wad of phosphorous that ignites and shoots a twenty foot flame. Pretty unstable stuff from what I've heard though.

    In the flick (and the comic) John Constantine is a guy invovled in the occult. So when I say dragon's breath, I mean actual dragon's breath. Cool, huh? [​IMG]

    Well, I know that the Hand Prop Room here in LA did the Holy Shotgun for the film, as well as several other prominent props, I'm sure (no, I don't have a list of what, exactly).

    I have a good friend who's worked at HPR for a couple of years now, and I remember him telling me about the shotgun and how impressed he was by its construction (he wasn't directly involved in its creation) - I guess it's put together from various different components... I seem to recall one of the components being an antique microscope, or something along those lines (this was some time ago, so my memory is kinda' fuzzy).

    And before the question is asked - no, there's no way of getting any photographic reference. Prop Shops are generally not in the business of sharing stuff like that - sorry.

    theres an add in the new Toyfare showing a licensed one coming out with a cool display stand.

    "This is will retail for $350 and ship in a full colour box with a certificate of authenticity."

    Yeah, I heard it's made up of a lot of different parts and that a fan-made replica would PROBABLY be impossible.


    Cool trivia: I guess the thing's so heavy-what with the gold plating and whatnot-that Keanu had trouble lifting the thing with one hand.

    Yeah, bump !!!

    I just saw the movie and I really liked it, despite its smaller flaws (pacing, use of characters etc, just my euro-2cts, anyway).

    But the props are really cool.

    We have the :

    - Holy shotgun
    - The old priests Pendant
    - Balthasars coin ( I am sure it is one of Judas´ traitor money [​IMG] )
    - Spear of destiny
    - Pendant from the exorcism
    - Constantines watch
    - Constantines antuique (?) lighter (just in case you left the movie early, after the credits have ended, it is featured in a close-up in a veeery neat and a bit moving scene, a beautiful lighter, really)
    - Papa Midnights scorpion pendant
    - the dragons breath
    - the unholy bible

    But it looks like the prop galore will start when the dvd is out, and I hope that we get many special features on that one.

    But if anyone knows a bit more about some of the stuff, feel free to post [​IMG]

    now pay attention to the description, it says it is cast off a stunt shotgun, and becasue of that, the amount of detail is greatly decreased, because i know there was way more detail on the gun in the movie then there is on the replica

    so seeing the movie tonight, i thought it was great,
    so how bout the match box, with some noise maker of some sort in it for the beetle?
    the holy water containers reminded me of xmas tree ornaments,
    the psychic cards to get in the club would be cool,

    his watch is an expensive one, its an oris
    heres one that if its not the one its close $852

    Yeah !!! During a movie I said to myself "Don´t forget to put it on the list !" and bang! forgot about it ! But it was quite late when I compiled the list.

    Sohooo, anybody going to make them ? Big problem is, IIRC, those brass knuckles are forbidden in Germany, but I´ll worry about that when someone has made them [​IMG]

    And yes, the Holy Water containers are important.
    But of course, the Holy Cross for the water (forgot the name of it) is important, too.

    the brass knuckles would be easy to make if not for the inscriptions around the knuckles.

    The shotgun is very cool. That replica is sad. Why make a piece like that attached to the base? It costs way too much for a cast piece like that. Too bad. [​IMG]

    Everything from the movie's so ornate. I haven't seen one prop from the flick that doens't have some kind of engraving or etching on it. Even John's lighter is all fancy-like.

    "molded directly from a casting taken from the original mold produced for the stunt prop in the film Constantine"

    so its a cast of a cast from a mold for the stunt version, i think ill pass, look at it it doesnt even have the cross sight on the barrel, and the engravings probably not all that great since its from a stunt version, and for 350 i dont think ill get it, just try and work out something myself,
    anyone have any idea of the flashlight model on the top??
    and the front peice on the barrel, with the holes, i dont know but it just looks familiar, get some hex stock, and a street sweeper, anyone make an airsoft streetsweeper??

    nope shows the kramer kid melting gold crosses to make the slugs, the part of the shotgun that held the shells was silver, and on the replica there just plated with the part, so is that where your getting the idea??
    theres a few good shots of them on the table when the kid os making them up, all gold from what i saw,
    maybe there were some silver ones too though??

    exactly to the left of the magnifying lens is the shotguns shell clip or what youd want to call it and you can see the shells in it being gold, to the left of the guy is the cross/barrel section and more left is the handle, right under the metter or scale or whatever that is, looks like a shotgun handle with the buttstock sawed off, and right over that is the flashlight,so anyone got ideas on making the full take apart shotgun??

    not saying thier wernt silver shells either though, they could have had some,looks like ill be seeing the movie again with someone soon so ill keep a closer look out,

    but looks like all the shotgun parts are supposed to be somewhat disguised too, like the shell holder looks like its supposed to be disguised as a clock, as you can see the gears and stuff on the base its on, and theres 12 shells on it, just my guessing at it,
    does anyone know if this thing actually fired or not??
    im just thinking maybe it wasnt built on a real gun, cuase the streetsweeper pictured earlier wouldnt be able to be made into this from what i can see,i could be wrong, this is just all my guessing at things,

    anyone have definate info on it, length or whatever?? the replica says "10-inches high x 10-inches deep x 23-inches long" cant tell if thats item lenth including base, id say it did, wish there were more pics there of it so we could figure it out better

    Someone here on the board that's in the know told me about the street sweeper bit MONTHS ago. They didn't say it was a converted sweeper in so many words, they just said that it was BASED on one.

    oh yeah definatly based on a street sweeper, but id say not built around one, i was just more thinking they used the concept and built what they wanted custom,
    unless theres more street sweeper designs than ive seen,
    im still just guessing, not anything definate in what ive said, just my guesses on things, so if anyone does have definate proof, let it be known,

    another gun one. this one though makes me retract what i was thinking before, you can see the handle a little more clearly that it looks like a pistol style grip so maybe the back end is all streetsweeper, still hard to tell about the grip though as it is a bit fuzzy,

    Yea, I agree. I thought it was pretty great and a little thought provoking too. Which is always good in a film.

    I am with you on the brass knuckles and the lighter. I would also like one of the Hell Bibles. These three things are about the easiest props to make from the film I would guess. All we need to do is find the base they used.
