    Hi guys,

    I've teamed up with a professional prop maker and we have decided it would be great to scratch build some props and offer them to you the RPF.

    What props have you always wanted but have never been offered as a replica?

    If we can get enough interest in a particular prop and it's a viable prop to ship, we can make it and offer it up.

    I had an idea for the 3 bots from Batteries Not Included as they seem pretty hard to get and there was a thread recently with quite a bit of interest.

    The prop maker I will be working with has worked on some big films like Hellboy I & II, Batman begins, Underworld, V for Vendetta, Star Wars, XXX, Gullivers travels, Sunshine and many more.

    POST YOUR IDEAS.........:love

    Maybe it would be a good idea to post pics of what you would like us to make.

    Nobby, is that the pulse rifle in your signature?

    These two prop replicas would be 200-300 US$ worth to me. But only if it's screen accurate as you can see on the picture. The originals were sold for 36,900.00 US$ this month.

    And of course: the holy grail of all Back To The Future fans - Marty's future jacket! If you manage to create this jacket really screen accurate, I'm sure, the fans would fight to get one.

    Two items that I and others want to buy:

    An original model Sliders timer with working electronics:

    Sliders BBoard / Sliders timer replicas for sale!

    SLIDERS TIMER REPLICA - YouTube

    The original prop maker popped up here on RPF and provided some info on the electronics programming, and Thermalized Plastics even sells a pretty good shell (which I have); but no one seems to want to make and sell a working, finished replica as seen in the above links.

    There is demand for something that works and looks like it should.

    You would also probably have a great deal of interest in the Krull glaive:

    [​IMG]

    The maker of that replica no longer provides the item, but there's a very detailed walk-through of the build in this thread below:

    I've always wanted one of these with an actual telescoping barrel.
    [​IMG]
    It seems like a pretty easy build (Hell, I could probably make one) but I've always wanted just see one of these things made.

    I second the BTTF post. I was just talking to my brother the other day about that jacket--how we both wished a replica was around.

    You guys do great work!
    This has been on my mind since getting your idol earlier today but I would love to see you guys tackle the cherubs on the Ark of the Covenant from Raiders (with thumbs and all)!

    I would echo the first responce. Farscape could use a lot of love, its such a great series. I think the bots from Batteries Not Included would be pretty awesome though.

    I'm more of a model kit replica guy so how about some vehicles from the original tron, an Aliens APC or drop ship? Even a HALO dropship would be cool. Most of my wants are all video game related items so I doubt they'd get much call for.

    Wow some great ideas guys. Keep em coming. I love that BTTF jacket but clothes are not an option I'm afraid.
    I'll pass on these pics and ideas and see what the prop guy fancies having a go at.
    I'll let the thread run into the new year as we are working on some projects at the mo. :)

    Since there is no chance to get a screen used cast i would also vote for the arc cherubs finished like in the movie and 100% accurate:love

    As a Star Trek movie (original crew) fan, I've been looking for quality versions of the TWOK tricorder, and/or the TSFS tricorder. Through the years, I've managed to get myself a Coyle Trek III phaser, and a decent Trek III com, but the tricorders remain a huge want!

    I'm the only fan I know of that would also LOVE Shatner's revised communicator for Trek V...Which was basically an illuminated and modified version of the comm seen in Trek III. As much as I'd love to get my paws on that, I doubt this is a prop that many are looking to add to their collection :)

    I'll throw my hat in for the glaive from Krull as well. I made my own half assed version a few years ago but I would love a good one. I think Im the only one who would like to see a lighted version of the gun from "I come in peace."

    I'm easy when it comes to Terminator stuff. I would love this to be able to use it for a desk. Put a sheet of plexiglass over it and I'm good to go.

    What do you think the overall dimensions of that would be?

    Weapon replicas is the way to go for collecting ,for the reason that all of our scifi movies are generated by these replicas to make the characters in what they are in the films.....couldnt live without all our weapon props....lol...

    I'm not sure mate. I believe the one in his home office was smaller than the lab version. I'd go roughly with 24" for the one in his office with the lab version being slightly larger at approx 30" long.

    These are the photos and grabs I've managed to find of it.........

    Terminator Chip pictures by polsnulspace - Photobucket

    Looking at the photo(s) where he is holding the broken piece in the lab, you can see both his middle fingers easily fitting in the gap between 2 of the blocks. It doesn't look that big when sitting on his desk. Its kinda hard to tell though.:unsure

    Do you have measurement/size etc? I'm sure this could be an easy one to make.
    What is it called?

    I did see the little bots from "batteries not inclluded" on Ebay about 10 years ago, and nobody bid. Think the starting was only 50.00 or something, and in 7 days, not one bid for the whole three auctions, I was amazed, I wanted those so badly, but didn't have any money, and thought the seller would have a high reserve set on them.

    What prop I always wanted was a clean version of the "Black Hole" blaster, never could find one, and alot of people seem to be looking also. It's an idea :)

    Sorry mate....I gotta let you down on all counts there. I've no idea of the measurements/size etc and as for what it is called...well I've just been calling it the big Termi chip thing.:confused :lol

    The only info I have is the photos is the link above!

    I'd like to see this replicated as well. Don't know it's official name, but I call it the Dyson Prototype CPU. As far as the size, perhaps the size of these PCBs that fly out of it when Dyson smashes the one in the lab can be helpful; they're exactly 83 x 83 mm.

    Going on the above photo, if the PCBs are 88mm, then you are talking roughly 100mm/4" per cube and with a gap of approx 50mm/2" which equates to approx 700mm/28"......nearly what I estimated earlier. This is quite a big piece!

    I believe that is one of RAC Props's designs, and it was used in the movie "
    Android", along with another design, also one of RAC Props I believe.
