The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I was heading out of my friend's comic shop Yesterday when this pop gun caught my eye. The overall length is identical, and the tip is a solid match. The lever arm would need to be cut down (or replaced with a 3D printed version, etc.) but for a couple of bucks it would certainly be worth it.

I used some of these to change out the four barrel inner bodies!

That's a great use for these. I haven't seen the four barrel versions around as much, but this would certainly make an easy enough mod for someone who had one.

Is that the one from "Imperial" ? There were threads here about those... years ago.
But, the last time I contacted that company, I was told they stopped making them long ago.

My friend bought out a store and has boxes of these unopened. They say copyright 1991 Ja-Ru Inc. on the package.

He is selling them for $5 each, so it is a neat little find (even if it isn't 100% screen accurate).

Here's what I was thinking of:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1000

Sorry, it wasn't "Imperial". It was "Funtastic".

(I think Imperial was the toy VP70's)

Sorry man, I am trying to light a fire under my friend to list these on his store's website. Once he does that I can stop playing middle man.
