BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Season 1 Colonial Blaster Prop Replica

Battlestar Galactica Blaster Prop Replica

Check out this rare prop replica of the Battlestar Galactica season one standard-issue Colonial sidearm that’s gone up for auction on Ebay.

That’s the Syfy series and not the original 1970’s/80’s BSG.

From the seller:

This Season 1 GALACTICA BLASTER is a highly-detailed, expertly-crafted prop replica. It is brand new, straight from the shop, and has not been displayed or previously owned. This is not a typical solid prop. It is cast in several separate components, which allow an unmatched level of detail. The body of the blaster is a two-part clamshell which bolts over a solid resin replica revolver (exactly as it was done for the show). The use of aluminum-filled resin allows for extremely realistic weathering. The grip panels are separate and bolt on just like the originals. The woodgrain on the grips is cast into the resin for a durable and authentic appearance. The side switches are cast metal for added durability. The piece is cast in aluminum-filled urethane resin. This prop is not based on an Airsoft and has NO MOVING PARTS.  The entire unit weighs just under a pound.

Take a look at an image of the weapon as seen in the actual Syfy series:

If you think this looks similar to the Blade Runner blaster you’d be right. The standard-issue Colonial sidearm was based on the Blade Runner blaster. You can learn more about the weapon on the BSG Wiki and on the IMFDB.

The auction is currently up to $175 and only has one day to go. 

Head to Ebay if you want a shot at owning this for yourself.

Rare STAR TREK: NEXT GENERATION Type-2 Laser Pointer Prop Replica

Rare STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION Type-2 Laser Pointer Prop Replica IPI Toys
Image is of the actual prop replica for sale

In 1996 American toy company IPI Toys produced a limited edition run of officially licensed Star Trek: The Next Generation Type-2 Phaser laser pointers.

I believe this were limited to 10,000 (but I”m not 100% sure on that).

They came in a beautiful red velvet lined box together with a Certificate of Authenticity and instructions on how to use the laser pointer.

The pointer itself can be fired with or without a sound effect.

Today your chances of getting one of these is fairly remote. You have to wait until an existing owner puts one up for sale.

Fortunately that’s what this post is about because that’s what has just happened.

A seller has put one of these numbered #1018 up for auction on Ebay. 

The starting bid is $300 but I’m sure it’ll go for much more than that – these are seriously rare and highly sought after ST:TNG collector’s items.

Screen Used DEEP SPACE NINE & STAR TREK: NEXT GENERATION Phaser Rifle

Screen Used DEEP SPACE NINE & STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION Phaser Rifle

Here’s an actual, screen used prop that any Star Trek fan will salivate over.

This weapon was used on set in Star Trek: The Next Generation during the Borg episode ‘Descent Part 1’. It was also used in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The current owner, who is selling it, says:

I bought it from Next Gen’s Property Master on one of my set visits. It was the day they filmed inside the Borg “hall” for the 6th season’s cliffhangar “Decent part 1”. I saw this being used right in front of me, and when I went to lunch with the P.M. we worked out the deal and when I left that day, I left with the prop.

Features:

  • Made of hard rubber
  • Has a green tinted plastic screen for the flip up sight (sight appears to be glued in place and does not flip up).
  • Has 2 holes drilled in top (used to attach a sling which does not come with the prop)
  • Has a working “trigger” button
  • Comes with a Letter of Authenticity (LOA) detailing the history of the prop (including its appearance on DS9)

In terms of condition this one is good except for numerous paint cracks and chips. The paint is enamel and has cracked and chipped over time. Still, you could also restore it fully to look like its former on-set glory!

The seller has put it up for sale as he needs the cash, so this is one of those lucky breaks for a Star Trek collector or movie prop collector.

Price is $2,800 but the seller will entertain an offer – so if you want it, head to the link below to make one.

V TV Series (1983) Visitor Stunt Pistol

V-TV-Series-1983-Visitor-Stunt-Pistol

This is a stunt Visitor pistol from the original 1983 science fiction television mini-series V.

This original pistol was created for the production and would have been used for scenes when the gun was not to be fired.

The stunt pistol is made of dense foam, and has been crafted to represent a futuristic, alien technology.

The barrel and the grip have the look of a modern pistol, however, in the middle is a section that comes out of the hand grip and connects to the barrel, forming a square shape, giving the pistol a second handle.

Running through the barrel is a clear, plastic rod, used for support, which is partially exposed in the middle. In the hero versions for the show, this exposed piece lit up when shot.

Due to production use and age, the back of the gun barrel has become slightly bent (see photos) and the trigger guard has become partially detached, leaving the piece in overall fair condition.

The item measures approximately 12″ x 6″ (31cm x 15cm).

This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.

STAR TREK Black Handle Classic 2-in-1 Phaser (Diamond Select)

STAR TREK Tek Classic Phaser Diamond Select

In addition to the Gold Handle Type 2 Classic Phaser and the White Handle Type 2 Classic Phaser from the original series of Star Trek, Diamond Select have also produced TOS Black Handle Classic Phaser.

This is the original Star Trek 2-in-1 classic phaser design that includes a detachable Type-1 mini-hand phaser (pictured detached in the above image).

Released by Diamond Select under an official Star Trek license.

For maximum authenticity it’s a full-scale reproduction modeled after the initial Star Trek prop.

Features realistic beam lights, sound effects, and adjustable power settings.

To activate the sound, you must remove the plastic display tab and turn on the hand phaser. (This is done by clicking the far right dial forward toward the front of the pistol.) To trigger the lights, rotate the front dial forward.

Watch a (kind of odd and yet also slightly amusing) demonstration of this Classic Phaser prop replica:
