when I was really little, I fell in love with that TV show "Otherworld" back in the 80's. Sure there was a lot of schlockyness, and in retrospect it was prolly a disaster of a show. But gosh did I like it. Anyhow.. the Sterling family lifted two items off the Zone Trooper guy -- a pistol that was "upside down" - being activated by thumb stud on the top, with the mass of the weapon underneath the hand (I never could figure out how they aimed the thing, but since none of the heroes ever died, maybe that answers the question right there) The other item was an "access crystal" -- a tan-colored crystal thing about 6" long, and I think it was supposed to have some kind of electronics inside it. I don't suppose anyone has better pictures of these, or better yet info on the source? I imagine the crystal was scratch-made, but I recall seeing a picture once upon a time saying the pistol was made of some 80's camp lantern and a regular ol' air pistol grip that hand been turned upside down. Please please help?
