ALIENS M-56 Smart Gun Prop Replica (Limited Edition, Life-Size)

Check out this awesome M56 Smart Gun life-size prop replica as featured in director James Cameron’s 1986 sci-fi blockbuster, Aliens.

This replica is the only officially licensed full-scale replica of the M56 Smart gun that was wielded by colonial marines Vasquez and Drake to cut down waves of Xenomorphs! It was also featured in the video game Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Only 600 were produced worldwide in a limited edition run, all quickly selling out.

Considered by all to be “museum quality”, this M56 Smart Gun replica measures 48″ long, is constructed out of fiberglass, metal, and resin, and comes fully hand painted with a weathered appearance – and a display stand:
 
 
 
 

To say the M56 is highly sort after is an understatement.   Yet as we speak we’ve found one available for sale via an Australian collector. Not via auction though – it’s available with a hefty Buy it Now price of $4,995, but since this is a very rare and highly sort after collectible movie weapon, this level of pricing is kind of to be expected.  

Check it out at the link below where you can see many more photos of the M56 Smart Gun that’s up for sale:

THE WALKING DEAD Fully Functional Live-Blade Replica of Michonne’s Katana

THE WALKING DEAD Fully Functional Live-Blade Replica of Michonnes Katana

Master Cutlery’s high carbon steel prop replica of Michonne’s katana from The Walking Dead is pretty sweet but it’s not a touch on this replica.

This version is a hand-forged, fully functioning replica of her iconic sword.

The blade is Damascus steel forged to 1060 steel (folded forged 13 times / 8000 layers). It is also hand sharpened using over 12 steps (different grade grind stones) to the point where it is fully capable of cutting through thick bamboo.

The color is also produced with a special oxidation process which is solid and won’t peel off even with use.

The guard is made of copper.

The handle is wood covered in a real shark skin wrap. The shark skin is then wrapped silk wrap.

The scabbard is wood and leather.

Note: The stand in the images doesn’t come with the sword (as if Michonne carries around a stand!).

At a price of only $192.75 (price may change but that’s the price as I write this), this is an absolute bargain for such a high quality collectible.

This is seriously one of if not the best replica of Michonne’s The Walking Dead sword as seen on TV.

There’s only one place to get one for yourself and that’s at the link below:

BATMAN BEGINS Bat Bomb Prop Replica

The Dark Knight Mini Mine Bat Bomb Prop Replica

Here’s a life-size replica of the mini-mine (aka the “Bat Bomb”) as featured in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.

This is a replica of the coolest bat bomb to be featured on screen. There was a version in Batman and Robin but they were not nearly as compact and nicely designed as the Batman Begins version (which got ranked 12th in Complex’s Top 50 Coolest Batman Gadgets).

Replica details:

  • Mini-mine (safe)
  • Cast in pewter alloy, air-spray matte black (Ø380mm)
  • Red transparent dome (2mm), 13 individual magnets (2*5mm)
  • Black glossy acrylic stand (145*97*4.8mm), metal printed plaque (135*87*0.8mm)

Here’s an image of the weapon in the film Batman Begins:

The only drawback with this item is that the magnets need to be glued on and you have to do it yourself. Nothing a cheap tube of superglue and 15 minutes of your time won’t resolve.

Price to buy one of these replicas is $75. Find it at the link below:
