Sideshow and Factory Entertainment present the Moonraker Laser Prop Replica.
The Factory Entertainment Moonraker Laser prop replica was created after careful study of the original props in the EON Productions archives, as well as reference photographs and original production drawings.
The original props were made quickly, of lightweight materials, to suit the needs of film production. The replica is cast from a heavyweight polyresin and features metal fittings. Although visually identical to the original, the replica has more heft and strength than the original props.
Physical triggers are not present on the original props; they were deliberately omitted for practical reasons, to allow the actors to hold the props and fit their fingers into the area where a trigger would normally be while wearing thick astronaut gloves.
The replica features an ultra-bright blue LED light effect, activated by a concealed button, as a homage to the ground-breaking rotoscoped visual effects and to enhance the 70’s laser-weapon aesthetic.
Inspired by the Moonraker laser’s later appearances in 007 video games, scope detail and a movable ‘selector-lever’ have also been incorporated into the replica.
Each replica includes a certificate of authenticity booklet, a display stand and an individually numbered metal plaque. The edition size is 750 pieces.
Requires 2 x AAA (LR3) Batteries. Batteries included.
