Anybody remember this gem of a movie? Total drive-in level movie trying to cash in on the success of Star Wars, but it left an impression on me. This is a resin recast (doh!) of the Billiken alien that sat on David Allen's desk. I also have a piece of the spaceship interior. High-tech, backlit graphics on paper. Hehe. Someday, I plan on rebuilding this console for a proper display.

I was just thinking about this movie the other day. Was wondering if anyone had/made the Blaster itself?
Haven't seen it in so long, I remember a scene where he blasts a billboard with Star Wars on it. Or am I imagining that part.

One of my first sci-fi movie memories... I think I was 10 and thought it was DA BOMB. I distinctly remember wanting that blaster more than anything in the whole wide world. :D

Of course Star Wars came out the next year, and, well... :p

Definitely one of the first props I ever tried to build. The arm cannon as a child was one of the coolest things ever. Huge fan of the movie, thanks for letting me remember.. ;)

Ha. Very cool.

Laserblast is one of my all time favourtie b-movies, and by far my all time favourite MST experiment. So going to have to watch this again on the weekend.

Cheers.

OMG. That's the name of that movie? I saw that at my grandparents one saturday afternoon way back when. I remember running around with a cardboard tube on my arm for days afterwards. Man, thanks for sharing...cool stuff.

And for those of you wondering who David Allen is, go here.

He "contributed stop-motion animation sequences to more feature films than anyone else in the history of the cinema."
