Movie Weapons

G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes Katanas (United Cutlery)

These two Katanas based on weapons featured in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra .

They both have some of the most stunning design I’m yet to see on a movie sword. 

With these particular pieces there is good news and bad news. They are definitely designed as collector’s show pieces; they are not full tang as this would be impossible with the Snake Eyes design. The blades, while being hand forged high damascus carbon steel with double fuller grooves, are also false edged.

However, the flip side to that is that where they set out to be display swords, they do so extremely well. Every detail is precisely replicated from the movie, and each sword comes with a wooden scabbard and display stand (as pictured above). They are also created with collectors in mind, with unique serial numbers and certificate of authenticity included.

PREDATOR 2 Cutting Disc Prop Replica (1:1 Scale)

Hollywood Collectibles Group’s officially licensed PREDATOR 2 Cutting Disc Prop Replica was produced as a limited edition of 1000 and, due to its sheer awesomeness, sold out (at HCG) immediately upon release.

Designed to perfectly replicate the disc as seen in the 1990 film PREDATOR 2, this coolest-of-the-cool weapon replica contains working electronic parts.

Hand Cast, hand-finished, and hand painted to exact movie standards, this weapon replica pulls apart just like the one did in the film.

Each PREDATOR 2 Cutting Disc (also known as a Hero Cutting Disc or Smart Weapon) is Individually hand-numbered and stands 17 inches tall, with a disc diameter of 10 inches.

Comes with a Predator hand display stand. The hand is also made from an original film mold.

To manufacture the disc Hollywood Collectibles Group joined forces with renowned special effects house Stan Winston Studios.

It may have sold out at HCG but you can still snap one up if you’re lucky.

Still on the fence? Take a look at the following review:

HELLBOY 2 ‘Big Baby’ 1:1 Scale Life-Size Prop Replica

Hellboy’s Samaritan revolver replica might be sold out but you can still snap this up the 1:1 scale life-size prop replica of ‘Big Baby’ from Hellboy II: The Golden Army. .

The Big Baby Prop Replica features six removable shells and a musical wind-up feature that plays the tune Lullaby and Goodnight. It’s hand crafted in high-grade polyurethane, pewter, polystone, fiberglass and real leather, and comes complete with a sturdy display base.

You’ll probably want this pretty badly as it looks phenomenal, but the price tag will no doubt restrict a few less-financial collectors.

I’ve seen this advertised in different stores for more than $1000, depending on where you live.

At the time of writing this there’s 1 “Big Baby” on Amazon for $619 which is the best price I can find.

Failing that you can grab “Big Baby” on Ebay for $680 – while it lasts because it’s a Limited Edition prop replica of only 500 pieces.

Sword of William Wallace from BRAVEHEART

BRAVEHEART is one of my favorite movies, together with the awesome soundtrack by the legendary James Horner.

Also extremely cool from the film is this officially licensed Braveheart prop replica line by Museum Replica’s.

Produced by Windlass Steelcrafts, the Sword of William Wallace was created with Simon Atherton – the master armorer from the original film production.

This replica broadsword is hand forged in high carbon steel, is fully tempered AND has a full tang.  It’s reproduced in perfect detail to the famous sword carried by Mel Gibson with the sole exception that it comes unsharpened..

The authentic materials extend to the custom wood grip and oil tanned leather wrap.

Includes full color wood display plaque, certificate of authenticity and even the exact custom made, wool tartan strip tied to the handle as seen in the film.

This famous and exacting replica will set you back $324.99.
