InspireProps – Doom Eternal Super Shotgun Cosplay Prop

Saturday, March 7th, 2020

The classic Super Shotgun, first introduced to the Doom franchise in Doom 2, is beloved for its in-game power, delivering massive damage via a wall of buckshot launched from its twin sawed-off barrels. In DOOM: Eternal, the updated Super Shotgun is treated with reverence as a powerful demon-slaying relic, even bestowed the name “Lucifer’s Bane” in the game’s lore. It features intricate engravings and script along its surface, and an underbarrel pig iron “Meat Hook” used to latch onto faraway enemies to drag the Doom Slayer closer to them for a swift and violent death.

Russian-based InspireProps has taken Eternal’s depiction of the Super Shotgun, and has produced a highly-detailed cosplay prop of it, for sale on their Etsy shop. The “Lucifer’s Bane” prop is made of polyurethane plastic, and is painted with acrylic car paints and varnishes. They also offer a raw cast variant, for those who’d rather finish and paint the model themselves. The prop comes complete with two spent shotshell props, also engraved with runes and script, as any good demon-slaying tools should.

DOOM: Eternal’s release is just around the corner, and it’s awesome to see it inspire such amazing prop work!

Anovos – STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster Kit

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

Anovos, noted manufacturer of licensed prop replicas and costumes from properties such as Star Wars and Marvel, currently has a build kit of Boba Fett’s EE-3 Blaster from Return of the Jedi up for pre-order. The kit, a 1:1 replica based on scans, measurements, and photographs taken of the original screen use production assets, ships in 7 parts, and does require clean up and physical assembly. It also comes in a solid safety orange color, so you’ll also have to paint this one for it to be 100% display or cosplay ready. It’s so accurate, in fact, that you can see some of the detail from the original 37mm Webley & Scott No.1 Mark 1 Flare Gun the EE-3 screen model was built around.

Factory Entertainment – James Bond – The Golden Gun Limited Edition Prop Replica

Friday, August 30th, 2019

Factory Entertainment is releasing a seriously high-quality prop replica of assassin Francisco Scaramanga’s titular Golden Gun from the James Bond film ‘The Man With the Golden Gun’. A 1:1 scale replica, this prop is officially licensed by Danjaq LLC and EON Productions, and was created after extensive study of the props in EON Productions’ archives and interviews with the cast and crew. But the coolest thing about this particular prop is, it actually disassembles and reassembles just like the one in the film:

– Fountain Pen Barrel
– Lighter
– Cigarette Case
– Cufflink
– Replica bullet

According to the description on the product page, these components are made of machined metal, and will be 18ct gold plated, so this is sure to be a pretty expensive prop.

Pre-orders go up on September 1st, with delivery noted to be sometime in Fall of 2020.

Tomenosuke 2049 Movie Prop Edition

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

400

Deckard’s unnamed LAPD-issued blaster is one of the most iconic firearms in sci-fi cinema, an amalgam of a Steyr Mannlicher .222 Model SL and a Charter Arms Bulldog revolver, further fitted with LEDs and additional parts. Japanese prop manufacturer Tomenosuke is releasing the 2049 Movie Prop Edition of what they call the ‘PRO Blaster’, a movie-accurate replica of Deckard’s Blaster.

A number of features have been improved when compared to earlier releases of the PRO Blaster, including more-accurate overall geometry, as well as the grip color being more in line with the screen variant. The 2049 Movie Prop PRO Blaser also comes complete with dummy cartridges.

Hollywood Collectables Group – M56 Smartgun

Sunday, January 29th, 2017

Smart_Gun_400_01

I find replicas and props of movie firearms that end up costing more than quite a few guns to be interesting. Perhaps it’s the often times painstaking detail and quality put into something that ultimately can only put on display. Such is the case with the Hollywood Collectables Group exclusive M56 Smartgun. The M56 was first introduced in the movie ‘Aliens’, a 10mm automatic squad support weapon with an effective range of 1500 yards, and a motion-sensitive infrared tracking system. This particular model is 48″ in length, weights 15 lbs., and comes with a 24″ x 16″ print of the Smartgun blueprints and spec sheet. Only 150 of these are slated to be released, so if you don’t mind spending $1200 on a high-quality Smartgun replica, then this is your chance.
