Nice, but the one one the poster look looks narrower.. But that could just be the way the poster was printed / scaled

Bump any other props\pics\Info From THEY LIVE

sad about Roddy Piper R.I.P
The paper props would obviously be very easy to make.

There are They Live alien masks out there.

Never could figure out the watch they used for the communicator/teleport control.

I really really wish I could find the bubblegum-scene/alley-fight flannel. I can't even find a modern flannel that's close enough.

i think i heard john say one time that the watches he used for communication devices were standard fake gold rolex's worn in the 80's because they were cheap to get a hold of, hope this helps. great movie man

Unless someone pops up with a production pair of glasses, id say they were knock offs of the Ray Bans used in the film. Back in the 80's, and considering where They Live was filmed, knock off's were all over LA's Chinatown as well as every swap meet you could find, gas station, super market, liqueur store... Considering they had at least two boxes of them on camera knock off's would be cost effective as well as not needing any product placement clearance. In other words why spend $30 on something you can get for $3 en mass.
