I seem to recall that the pulse rifle wasn't included in MR's announced lineup for 2006. (Or am I thinking of the Falcon?)Originally posted by tain669@Jan 28 2006, 04:46 AM
Hi I just like to have some info about the PR that is suppose to from MR in the near future.Does any think it well be any good as as any MR stuff so far and what do you think the price will be?Â
I certainly hope MR isn't holding the M41A based on the sales performance of the motion tracker. This would be a tremendous mistake. There are a LOT of folks who would buy the pulse rifle in a heart beat, but have no interest in other Aliens props.Originally posted by temponaut@Jan 27 2006, 03:13 PM
Seems that sales of the motion tracker have been sluggish.Â It was released a long time ago and they've still got it in stock.Â Not sure why it hasn't done better, as it's an excellent replica for the money.Â Not perfectly screen-accurate, but excellent nonetheless.Â I sure like mine.Â
I agree whole-heartedly. Hitching your wagon to that travesty is asking for a disaster.Originally posted by Birdie@Jan 27 2006, 10:55 PM
The tracker release was very badly handled. MR lumped it in with aÂ bunch of AVP crap that no-one wanted. If they had released a strongly-branded Aliens series of prop items (PR, Grenade Set, Marine Helmet, for instance), I believe the MT would have been a big hit.
Instead they put their bets on an unreleased movie that everyone knew would stink, rather than one of the most popular Sci-fi movies of all time.
I've seen it advertised countless times as AVP Motion Tracker. Sad.

unless you were a fan of the film you wouldn't know what the hell it was, i'm a fan of the film and would never consider buying a MT :unsure

it's going to be static
If MR produces one, it will be extremely display ready. The motion tracker that they manufactured a while back was just as you see in this picture...Originally posted by tain669@Jan 27 2006, 01:46 PM

Way back when it was originally mentioned that MR was going to make a PR, I thought I remembered someone saying that if it is manufactured in China it will have to be static because of some regulation. This could be completely wrong but that is how I remember it.Originally posted by temponaut+Jan 27 2006, 10:03 PM--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(temponaut @ Jan 27 2006, 10:03 PM)</div><!--QuoteBegin-NoelandDo you know this for sure?@Jan 28 2006, 12:19 PM

I'm not debating it. Static is certainly the way they've gone with the Star Wars blasters (the Han ANH excepted). Just wondering whether you might have some inside intel... :love
I sure was hoping for lighted counter and moving parts. In particular, I'd hoped for a grenade launcher with working action and a reasonably authentic sound and feel...
EDIT: Don't mean that the grenade launcher should actually launch anything.
I actually remember reading the same thing: that replica firearms made in China are required to be static, and that although MR execs are themselves disappointed, there is nothing they can do. (Well, I suppose they could manufacture the pieces somewhere else. :unsure )Originally posted by Montagar@Jan 28 2006, 11:50 PM
