Limited Edition HCG Exclusive OD ALIENS M41a Colonial Space Marines Pulse Rifle Prop Replica

Limited Edition HCG Exclusive ALIENS M41a Colonial Space Marines Pulse Rifle Prop Replica

This is the Hollywood Collectibles Group (HCG) produced exclusive olive drab (OD) Aliens Hero Pulse rifle.

Only 250 of these were produced and all completely sold out.

I love the look of this rifle having been a fan of James Cameron’s Aliens for, like, ever.

Features:

  • Aluminum Shrouds the same dimensions as the original “Hero” Pulse Rifle.
  • Metal retractable shoulder stock
  • Metal barrel vent
  • Removable magazine
  • Light up LED counter display – sets at “95” when the magazine is inserted
  • Moving “Grenade Launcher” pump handle
  • Themed wall display plaque
  • Accurate Olive Drab Green colored shrouds

Watch a video (not of the actual prop for sale but of the actual production edition):

As stated in the video, HCG’s replica is considered to have a few flaws that are more annoyances than anything else, but as a display piece it is still a really great replica pulse rifle.

The price is perhaps a bit hefty at $1,200 but these aren’t easy to find so it’s doubtful you’ll find another HCG limited piece at a cheaper price.  

Note that this OD version has exactly the same features as the “Brown Bess” version. The only difference is the color and that it is limited to 250 pieces.

Life Size HALO 4 BR85 Heavy Barrel Battle Rifle Prop Replica

Life Size HALO 4 BR85HB Battle Rifle Prop Replica

Check out this amazing professionally constructed prop replica of the BR85 Heavy Barrel Battle Rifle as featured in the Halo 4 video game.

In the game the BR85HB (also referred to as the Service Rifle or the BR85HB SR) is a gas-operated, magazine-fed, semi-automatic rifle optimized for three-round burst firing.

This incredible replica is a hand made model of the battle/service rifle.

It is also a rare, one-of-a-kind exact full size replica that apparently took a detailed six months to create.

It features:

  • Game accurate paint scheme
  • Accurate markings and designations
  • Working charging handle with moving bolt
  • Removable magazine with ammo
  • Moving trigger and safety
  • Light-reactive ammo counter
  • Scope display screens

HALO 4 BR85HB Battle Rifle

Although a bit scant on production material detail, from the images this replica looks the goods big time! Definitely one for a serious Halo 4 replica weapon collector and a rare opportunity that is hard to look past.

The seller is asking $1,750 for it so when I say “serious collector” I mean it! 

You can snap it up for yourself or check out additional images of the rifle at the link below:

Limited Edition Master Replicas Version 2 STAR WARS Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Prop Replica

Limited Edition Master Replicas Version 2 STAR WARS Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Prop Replica

So I’ve just posted a link to score a rare version 1 Master Replicas Luke Skywalker TOJ Force FX Lightsaber as well as some links to score the later model Hasbro produced version.

But while the Force FX models are arguably collectors pieces rather than toys you may be the type of collector who only wants a serious replica (okay, serious as in seriously like the original screen used prop). If that’s the case then you might take interest in knowing a limited edition Master Replicas version 2 replica of Luke’s lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi is currently up for sale.

The image above is of the one in question and as you can see it is limited number 126 of 1,500. Very cool!

The seller says it’s in basically as-new condition:

It has only been handled with gloves once to put it in its display case. It has been on display in a glass curio cabinet away from sunlight and in a temperature controlled and smoke free home.

This replica lightsaber won’t last long, that’s for sure. As I type this post already 4 offers have been received by the seller – yes, he is accepting offers or you can snap it up for $1,000 as a Buy it Now price. I expect he’ll get a lot more and/or someone will just buy it outright to avoid missing out.

STAR WARS: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber Replica (Hasbro)

STAR WARS Episode VI Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber Replica

This is Hasbro’s awesome fully functional Force FX replica of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber as featured in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

Features:

  • Die-cast metal parts that feel like the real thing
  • Durable and sturdy green polycarbonate blade (permanently attached to the hilt)
  • Measures 44 1/2″ from the tip of the blade to the end of the hilt
  • In-built audio that sounds like the real thing (power-up, power-down, idle, movement and clash lightsaber sound effects – each sound is activated by motion sensors)
  • In-built sound is motion-sensor controlled
  • Display stand
  • Takes 3xAAA batteries (but these are not included)

If you want one of these be careful. I’ve noticed there’s a lot of what fans are calling “bait and switch” going on from less than reputable sellers. What they do is advertise the Force FX lightsaber, charge you a cheaper price than you’d otherwise pay, and then ship you a standard FX lightsaber or an Ultimate FX lightsaber. The upshot is you think you’re paying less for a Force FX but what you’re actually doing is paying more for a much, much inferior product.

Of course, sometimes sellers put the right price on the product to convince you it is the right product, only to still ship you the wrong product. In some cases they do this deliberately, and perhaps in others the sellers don’t really understand what the difference is between a Force FX, Ultimate FX, or FX model.

The following links lead to actual Force FX lightsabers. If you purchase in any other way from any other dealer I highly recommend taking every precaution you can to ensure you get what you’re after.
