    So, i've tried a few times before and hav gotten no where. I'm gonna keep on tryin till I get somewhere with this. I need pics of and of Van Helsing's weapons or accessories. I know they were/are on display at Fortress dracula at Universal Studios Cali (not sure if it's still there) and was hoping maybe someone can take a bunch of high res detail pics of the props on display? Please PM me if you dont' want to get bombarded wtih other requests. I'm most interested in the guns, crossbow, and tojos. Any of Van helsing's for that matter. The other characters dont' interest me that much.

    that's all I have sorry.
    I'm not a VH fan, but I thought someone might want a pic or two on here, so I tried to snap some in the low-light.

    I actually have the mace Kate was carrying in the "wet dog" scene.

    Well... Maybe not the ACTUAL mace...

    I bought a screen used stunt mace certified to have been used in Shanghai Knights.

    But it is IDENTICAL in design to the one she has in that scene.

    LoL. I'm really glad that someone on the board that has access to kick * prop making machines likes this movie. I'd love a mask like that. Great for cold winters in Canada :D If someone would be willing to do a couple of plan drawings for the main parts of the cross bow and maybe some other things that have been pictured like the hand gun, tojo handle/blades, etc., we may be on the right track.
    This is the highest res image I could find of him wearing the mask (just in case you're interested Clay ;) )

    Thanks for all the pics guys. Keep 'em coming if you have more.

    I remeber hearing that a while back. I went searching for them online and found the company that made all the weapons in that scene (minus Van helsings custom stuff). They're located in Prague and have shops all over the city and at the castle. May have to pay them a visit. They have the little war hammer of the hand holding the spike and it only costs about $130 USD

    I don't know if I could make it as functional as seen on screen, but I might be able to give a shot at making a nice looking replica of the crossbow. It seems there is interest...
