    This is a slightly different post to most, in the form of a short resume and the story of how a fan-made replica can lead to a Licensed product......

    Jason Wilbourn is responsible for some stunning Licensed replica weapons from 2000AD comic, he started by unleashing his inner mutie.........

    Thanks to Jason for mentioning yours truly.

    There will be a F/S thread in the Junkyard and although we recognise that our comic props may be a little more niche than stuff from Master Replicas or Sideshow we'd be delighted to offer the RPF 10% of sales towards hosting and software fees.

    Cheers,

    Charlie

    that.... is freaking AWESOME........

    i still have my JA toy figure standing guard over my hellraiser cube on the shelf.

    i loved that comic as a kid, and that blaster looks like it could have stepped off the page.

    damned fine work, and a terrific story as well :)

    Thanks, Sounds like a good excuse to leave early from work tomorrow :) On a side note is Jason going to be working on the Rogue Trooper Gun as well sometime in the future?, if so have you any pre production details yet ?

    Thanks

    BTW, the original scratch-built Westinghouse blaster that Jason made to sell on eBay was this one:

    He is planning on working with Charlie on a Rogue Trooper Gunnar which will probably be a combination of HIP plastic, resin and metal.

    Cheers,

    Yes - there are some drawings, it's based on the comic rather than the game version. :)

    Received the Westinghouse prop today as promised and have to say, real big, nice and weighty with a cracking paint job, love it. Its great to see someone finally producing props from 2000ad especially Stontium Dog and Judge Dredd, but looking forward to see how the Rogue Trooper turns out as well. Only problem is finding space in an expanding collection of gun props which my wife isn't exactly happy about :)

    Thanks again

    I know this is a very old thread but just wanted to say that Alpha is my fav character. As a child with numerous health issues, I really connected with old kreelman and considered myself a stront dog which, even though may sound a little silly, really kept me going with all the issues I had.

    Now as an adult who, in medical terms is a real walking contradiction (should've been dead n buried years ago!), I am slowly creating an alpha costume for cos-play. I've only ever seen one done and can't believe he's not more popular.

    Here's a pic of my full size SD badge.
