    Mine is a copy of the book "A Salute to Cheese" from the movie "FREE ENTERPRISE" with Erik McCormack and William Shatner. It's from the bookstore scene when they first meet "Bill" checking out a porn mag. McCormack's character walks into the store and picks it up.

    When I saw it I thought it was so goofy, I had to own it.

    My Production made but never used "Odo" Facial Appliance.

    It looks like someone decapitated the Changling and had him mounted in a display box. :lol

    I never thought I would make time in my life to actively seek out and watch a show starring two sock puppets, but man, that show was the berries. I had totally forgotten about it until now. I wonder if I can find episodes on Torrent anywhere...

    oh, yeah...forgot to say what it was. Its an animatronic leg used in Twin Falls Idaho. Its a leg shared by the main characters who are conjoined twins. A cable controls the ankle but there is a twitching in the toes controlled via remote servo. Skinflex, acrylic nails and punched hair... Certainly gets lots of "eeewwws."

    Mine is a bust of the Norwegian from the thing or perhaps the "bladder" spider from the Outer Limits "Tempests"- Neither comes close to the leg- Where the devil is that from?

    Don't know if it's the weirdest, but definitely the LAMEST prop in my collection is the screen used rock from Star Trek: Generations.

    [IMAGE]http://www.mattmunson.com/props/star_trek/generations_rock/rock_b.jpg[/IMAGE]

    Actually, I LOVE this piece, mainly because of the story behind it, but it doesn't really fit in with the ethos of the rest of my collection. But who cares.

    Mike, that leg is creepy. Alien 4?

    No pictures, but my wierd prop is a Morris Minor hubcap - not screen used, but as seen in the "Last of the Summer Wine" episode Magic and the Morris Minor. Absolutely guaranteed not to be recognized by anyone, though people do ask why there is a hubcap hanging on the wall.

    Mine is a plaster cast of Peter Cushing's head. It's the same life mask they scanned when they made the Gentle Giant Bust after his death.

    It's a 3/4 life mask (missing behind the ears) and his eyes are closed (obviously.)

    My goal is to cast it, sculpt the eyes and back of the head (possibly hair) and make a head to go with a Tarkin Uniform.

    Either way though... that is the weirdest thing in my collection. I always look at it and expect the eyes to open and it to start talking or something.

    Last time I went up to Niagara Falls Canada the action figures were on display in a case on the wall at the Planet Hollywood there. That was about 4 or 5 years ago.

    Yeah, I have a set of those. There was the X-Wing, Vader's TIE Fighter, and one with Vader's face and the words Star Wars.

    There were some for the SW Trilogy and Episode I machines. They were for the cabinet keys (coin lock, cabinet lock, etc) for the 1992 Data East Pinball machine.

    Mine are:

    Screen used Gamepod with a piece of Umbricord from "ExistenZ", the pod is made of real soft silicone. According to people who have held it, it scores high on the "EWW... Factor"

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and her is a partially complete gristle gun, also from "Existenz", still needs a lot of work:
    [​IMG]

    and a first gen cast from the 'Pazuzu' headfigure from the original Exorcist movie (the one Merrin finds at the beginning of the movie". My wife hates it and i can't put it in the livingroom.

    I think the weirdest thing I have is some of the prop * hair from the shaving scene in American Wedding.
    Its really just wig hair. Got it from the propmaster. Also have one of the glue containers from the other American pie movie. Other weird things would include screen used Energizer bunny ears, the Nipple elecriction shirt from Saving Silverman, and what appears to be an unfinished or very rough Chig boot from Space Above and Beyond with straw or hay inside.
