    What prop do you wish there was more reference photos of, and more discoveries made on? Mine would be the ANH version of the dh-17 blaster, besides screencaps I have only found 1 reference photo of it:

    Judge Dredd Judge Hunter gun. Actually the prop has eluded me, I would take pics and share if I got one :)

    Galaxy Quest - Hero version TV Series Nebulizer - Best I can tell there were two heroes made and at least two stunts made - I have the only two TV Version stunts I've ever seen or heard of, but the wherabouts of those hero versions continue to elude me - Might have to hunt down Tim Allen someday.

    Jabba's Palace blaster. I know there has to be good reference photos out there somewhere, but be damned if I can find them.

    Cheers.

    In the last starfighter, the assassin. The guy who played a heavy in every 80's Tv show ever? That assassin has a cool looking shiny laser pistol that I cannot find photos of anywhere.

    If anyone could get me decent screen caps, or something like that. That would be cool.

    Second would be Ron Silver's gray timecop gun. It's only in the film for like 5 seconds and I can't tell what the base gun is. I can't seem to find that anywhere either.

    I have more. :cry

    I know the guys that made all the guns for Timecop. They have a company up here in Canada called Dlask, check out their website here: http://www.dlaskarms.com/

    The prop that I'd most like to find more information on is The Shredder's helmet from the first two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies. I've wanted that thing (or copies like it/molded from it) since I was around 3 years old. haha. I know there's some private collector out there who owns the original...I've tried to contact 'em, but got no response at all over the course of two years. :( I seriously doubt I will ever come into contact with it or anything else from the original costume, but I have always wondered exactly how they created the stuff.

    The other thing I've always wanted to own is a complete casting from the original molds of T-1000's "pretzel man" stage from T2. I KNOW I'll never have that...Not just because it's darn near impossible, but also because I'd never have enough money to afford it. :lol

    Right now, it's the AT-AT pilot glove com pad.
    Probably also used by the cloud city Ugnaughts and possibly the 'snowtrooper commander' as well...
    As always - any pics would be most welcome :)

    Snakes big ol' count-down bracelet/watch from 'Escape from LA'.
    Tried everywhere I could think of to find a replica (or get one made) but only ever hit dead ends on it.
    Also those infernal DD Canes always missed my chances with those.

    That is Jesper Isberg's blaster. He organizes small conventions in Sweden three times per year where he has some of his props on exhibition. He rotates the props from his collection, but I think have seen this one more than once. I am sure there must be people who have taken more pics of it. I know the scope is a repro and the grooves in the barrel are rounded on the bottom.
    Isberg does not allow replica-geeks to inspect his props up close, unfortunately. :(

    Hmm... I'm not sure I really have one of these yet. I guess the closest would be wanting good photos of the Holiday Special saber, since I have a Graflite flash.

    Or possibly a Mace Windu saber resin casting... 'cause I can't seem to get hold of one. :unsure

    That one is not too hard to rectify. Just need some greenbacks is all.

    After thinking on it, I would like to add Vera from firefly. I found out that it's in private hands now and has been demilled (thanks to the verse-folks for posting said info) which makes me sad :cry Been one of my favorite movie guns since seeing it in "showtime".

    Hey, I got to hold Deckards gun when I hosted a show on the Sci Fi Channel. I always wondered if it was orignal, but all of the props on the set were supposed to be original. I have some video footage of it around here from the series if you'd like to see. I would have to digitize it.

    god there are so many....

    top of the list... id have to go with obi wan ANH (had a resin casting eons ago), boba fett armor, nazgul gauntlets, accurate reeve styled supes costume , accurate dean cain styled supes costume, so... freaking many of them.

    the one big :angry that i have though (always, ALWAYS missing on these), misc cool "background" pieces. like the little holy water grenades from constantine, or the foldable batarang from begins. a while back it was one of those supes crystal displays that hold 3 or 4 crystals in the tubes. hell, today i got my new checks in, and im flat * broke until payday :lol

    just, always bad timing. always.

    on the positive side, if i DID have all that stuff, id have no place to put it, display it, or even really show it off properly. plus id be one broke bastard too heh.

    oh wait, i already am :lol

    For me there are several, i'll add pics later

    -Johnny Mnemonic 'Sogo 7 Datagloves. Talked to the propmaster who made them and learned a lot, but he didn't have any pics.

    -Judge Dredd Rico's unfolding gun. Had to eyeball my prototype, but would love better reference to make it as accurate as possible

    -Young Sherlock Holmes: Pyramid of Fear: Rametep blowpipe

    -Da Vinci Code: Cryptex
    Dying to see more of this beautiful prop, good shot in the trailer but not enough to make an accurate replica

    -Existenz: Gristlegun
    identifying 65+dinobone parts from fuzzy pics and screencaps was NOT fun.

    -Dark City: Syringe
    Movie has some good shots, but i would love to know how the inner mechanics for the spring action was done

    -Bladerunner: Voight Kampf Machine

    -Fifth Element: Korben's jacket and pants
    One of the most beautiful costumes i have ever seen, not enough reference to make them

    -Minority Report: Hero Sonic shotgun

    The lightsabers from the Knights of the Old Republic games. There were some awesome characters in there (especially the first one), but they all had a generic saber. Darth Revan and Malak sabers..... mmmmmmmm ;)

    Predator bio helmet. The Icons one is something like a 4th gen cast, and most that are available on the net are modified stunt helmets, or just plain nasty.

    Saw a beautiful first gen cast on ebay something like 5-6 years ago, and STILL wish I'd just dug a little deeper and ponied up the cash.

    Yes, very cool. It's like a reveal gun & a great non-reveal design in ONE. Could be a shampoo advertisement. OK, it's no Judge Hunter rifle, but Vera is cool.

    were you interviewing harrison ford, or ridley scott? cause i heard the hero is with Ridley. so unless you were interviewing harrision ford around the time of the move, or Ridley, it probably wasn't the hero. and i'd love to see the video.

    What my avatar's looking (out of shot) at.

    Hopefully MR will produce one some day.
    Real brass, wooden seat. Lights - spinning disk - perhaps a signed edition in a tantalus box.

    Wishful thinking, but hey. I can dream.
