    Had a lovely afternoon in the company of Bob Burns on Saturday. He and his wife are the nicest people you could ever hope to meet, and their stories are fantastic. She's just as creative as any of us too - as we chatted, she was busy matting her photographs amidst Terminator Tank parts. Heh.

    You can't even begin to imagine the amount of amazing things in this wonderful collection:

    Naked Lunch.

    Fantastic photos. Thanks for sharing.

    Is it possible to get a larger photo of the Blade Runner pistol?

    Thanks.

    You're in LA too? And here I thought I was just unintentionally snubbing Venkman and Darcjedi :(

    My schedule was pretty tight unfortunately - but I can always come back, you know? I did get to have dinner with John DeLancie though, which was pretty cool.

    LA is BIIG, too.

    I hope this now means MR will be offering a studio scale Aliens dropship.

    I was just visiting friends in the area - but I do have a 3 foot dropship of my own :D

    So I took a lot of pics of the landing gear for my own project.

    I would love to see Bob's collection someday. I've met him at conventions, he's a great guy.

    Thanks for sharing. Very interesting pics. Muftak was my favorite of the bunch. What were your impressions of his Blade Runner blaster?

    Dunno if it's real or not - looks like a stunt, and is either dense resin or petrified rubber - hard and heavy.

    im still working on weathering that damned glove :lol

    appreciate the dedication though :)

    man, bob has some cool stuff. any other pieces of that x-wing laying around? i cant really imagine a diorama setup for it but its still something i never gave thought to someone actually owning.

    the typewriter is my fav piece out of the pics though.

    Old thread for sure!

    Bob and Kathy are the absolute best, and the collection is jaw dropping for sure.

    For anyone wanting a peek at our friend Bob's collection, we've been posting up pics from our visits with him and Kathy to our Facebook page.

    Our visits to Bob's Basement | Facebook

    We've got some more pics from Bob's to come, so feel free to click "like" on our page if you want to keep on top of these and other cool prop pics we post.

    Hope that helps!

    best,
    Tom
