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.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VI – RETURN OF THE JEDI Biker Scout Blaster Prop Replica

Star Wars Return of the Jedi Biker Scout Blaster Prop Replica

Check out this brilliant looking life-size prop replica of the Biker Scout’s blaster as featured in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

This is a 1:1 scale high quality filled resin replica of the original Biker Scout blaster made for the film by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). 

Many weapons in Star Wars were made from existing guns that ILM modified into sci-fi blasters. This one was an exception where ILM created the weapon as a custom single piece with a British made “Singlepoint Scope” mounted on the right side using half of a Webley scope ring. 

The artisans at Modelers or Mice have gone out of their way to replicate the original weapon just as ILM envisioned it, although in this case the entire gun is sculpted (no external attachments). That makes this weapon replica a screen accurate weapon to ILM’s vision rathre than a replica of the original on set prop which, in my view, is perfect.

STAR WARS Biker Scout Blaster

This is definitely the kind of replica Star Wars fans should jump on, not only because it’s very accurate to the screen used weapon but also because the Biker Scout’s blaster is not typically an easy replica weapon to find.

$97 is the price being asked as a Buy it Now direct from the artisans own Ebay store:

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Phaser Replica (QMx)?

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Starfleet Phaser Replica (1)

Here’s a limited edition special Star Trek Into Darkness gift set that includes a Quantum Mechanix replica phaser.

If you’re wondering why I put a ? on the end of this title it’s because I’m not 100% certain that this is a Star Trek Into Darkness phaser replica. It might be although it looks exactly like the QMx replica phaser based on the stunt weapon used in J.J. Abrams’ 2009 film Star TrekIf so, that’s not a bad thing either since the same weapon is going for $100 on Ebay.

Or it might simply be the same design or extremely similar as used in the new film. Either way here’s a few more images:

It comes packaged with a pre-order of the Star Trek Into Darkness 3D Blu-ray – amazing to see this up for sale already given the film was only just released in theaters.

Rare MEN IN BLACK II Noisy Cricket Prop Replica (Unobtanium)

MEN-IN-BLACK-II-Noisy-Cricket-Prop-Replica-Unobtanium

If you’re looking for a rare and elusive replica movie weapon this one is it.

It’s the Unobtainium manufactured limited edition Noisy Cricket from Men in Black II.

Unobtainium was a company started by industry insider professionals whose main aim was to bring only the highest quality movie prop replicas to the public. They obtained official licenses to release replicas from Men in Black II, Star Trek, Spiderman and more, yet despite their undeniable high quality work they ended up closing their doors and shutting down their operation.

Before they did go under they began work on producing a limited edition run of the Noisy Cricket gun, Agent J’s personal sidearm from MIB II. It was released in 2002.

The Noisy Cricket replia was to be a limited edition run of 2,500 pieces. Information is scant on how many pieces they actually produced. Some say only 250, others say in the area of 800. Consensus seems to be the truth is more in the 1,200-1,500 area. Either way, the result is the Unobtainium Noisy Cricket is now one of those high quality movie prop replicas that is considered rare and highly sought after by collectors and MIB fans alike.

Features of the Noisy Cricket:

  • life-size (modeled to the correct size of the weapon that appears in MIB II)
  • body is aluminium
  • grip is rubber
  • includes a working trigger that illuminates the cylinder and has a spring loaded hammer.
  • included a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) from Amblin Entertainment and Columbia Pictures
  • shipped with a clear lucite display stand and black mirror-finish display base 
  • numbered plaque
  • came in an original Unobtainium box decal
  • requires two CR1220 coin cell batteries
  • less than 1,500 believed to be in existence

This is Unobtainium’s original sales blurb:

Working closely with the studio, our engineers were given access to the actual props used in the production of MIB II. Having a direct, hands-on study of that which was used on film has insured that each and every replica offered by Unobtainium Ltd. is a beautiful recreation of its screen-used counterpart.

Manufactured of high grade, computer-machined aluminium, each piece ships with a custom presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity.

The otherworldly green glow of the Cricket’s power core is activated with a simple pull of the trigger. Limited to a production of only 2,500 pieces world-wide.
