    very cool collections guys!

    just wondering...if you could have the ultimate replica prop from breaking bad (thus far), what would you ideally make/have?

    I would have to go with that pink teddy bear
    Now that I own the grill, I have to say the teddy bear as well. I found the women that made the bear for the show and unfortunately it costs $500 per bear. I am sure somebody could do a close enough reproduction though.

    I made the 'meth' according to an internet recipe for sugar glass. Basically just 3 1/4 cups of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar, 1 cup of clear glucose syrup (known as Karos corn syrup in USA?), blue food colouring and a flavour if wanted.

    You will definitely need a sugar/jam/candy thermometer to get the mixture to 300 degrees F but do this SLOWLY. I'm talking at least 45 minutes to an hour. Too quick and it will burn. Too high a heat and it will go yellow. Use a low heat setting.

    The moment it hits 300F remove and pour into a large tray lined in foil (or spray with cooking spray to avoid foil and look screen accurate if you get a big enough tray)

    Blue food colouring takes a while to get right amount of. Leave to cool. Voilà!

    Then smash and sell

    Just wanted to post a pic of the shelf now holding my Tuco grill/block. Thanks to Great1, we were able to get these from the same place that made the show ones. Perhaps the coolest item I own to date.

    Would anyone be interested in a Los Pollos Hermanos clock as seen in Gus' office?



    Here is a reference photo,




    Unfortunately it won't be 100% screen accurate as I have a feeling they placed a sticker on a real clock. The hands are different and I tried to match the numbers the best that I could.

    That is quite the awesome collection you have going. The grill really set it over the top, and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a Los Pollos Hermanos air freshener.

    Another great looking shelf. I really love the stacks of money, I am thinking about getting a roll of cash and adding some "blood" to look like the roll Jesse gave Walt from the ATM.

    I've never watched this show. Is it any good?
    IMO opinion it's the best show that has ever been on TV. But it is definitely an acquired taste. If you watch, though, it is IMPERATIVE that you watch the episodes in order, and avoid any and all spoilers - like this thread! LOL

    I'll second Hecubus114's opinion on Breaking Bad; it's one of the most compelling, intense show's that I've ever seen, and you absolutely must watch all episodes in order.

    So obsessed with this show - no doubt my favorite of all time.

    I had the honor of "meeting" the one and only WW few days ago outside the David Letterman show and got him to sign my Heisenberg hat - he even said "I like your style." Beyond happy and a great addition to my slowly growing BB collection. (sorry for the bad pics - took them in a hurry).

    Congrats on meeting Bryan, he is a really nice guy.

    I once saw a picture of a pair of underwear that Bryan had signed for someone else, I think I would prefer the hat.

    Thanks, yeah he was nice to everyone that showed up and tried to sign as many items as he had time for.

    Agreed, I prefer the hat over underwear lol. Might get a foam mannequin head to display it on and add the Heisenberg glasses.

    Of course, everyone here knows that the blue crystal meth is also a crossover prop, as the production design/art design/prop department for The Walking Dead TV series features blue crystal meth in Season 2, as an apparent recreational drug used by Merle. So, if anyone decides to make some for their collection, split them up into two sections.

    First off I would like to say that Breaking Bad is the best show I have ever seen and I love what you guys are doing here. I am planning on making a completely screen accurate Walter White super lab outfit to put on a mannequin in my room. So far I have sourced these items (Sorry if they are a bit big):

    DuPont Tychem QC122S Size XL


    3M 6900 Series Respirator


    3M Multi Gas/Vapor Cartridge/Filter 60926


    Microflex® UltraSense® EC (Extended Cuff) Gloves


    Then a white tee to put under the hazmat suit to create this look:

    (Cont'd)

    Now for the face of the mannequin I will put a goatee, glasses and a bloody piece of gauss with tape holding it on. Now the real reason I am posting on this here is I want a second opinion as to whether I found the exact glasses he used. I scoured the internet for about two hours and came up with these:

    Wolverine W041 Brown


    Reference



    They look like the ones but I am only 95% sure. I would love some input, or maybe someone has already found what make the glasses are.
    As for the goatee, I am still looking for a decent one that matches his hair color.

    I don't believe those are Walt's glasses but they do look very close. I was told by somebody from the show that Walt's glasses are discontinued and they only have 3 pairs to use themselves.

    I noticed with Walt's glasses they have a tiny hook on the inner arms. You can see it well on the season 4 poster, link.

    Thanks for the information on the glasses, I don't want to pay full price for a pair of glasses unless they are the exact ones.

    If anyone wants to know I picked the respirator, filter cartridge and tychem suit from envirosafetyproduct.com for about $140 and the gloves and the SafetyGrip neon green box cutter from labelmaster.com for about $18. Now to build a mannequin from PVC...
