PROP PHOTO QUESTION

Post by rsaffle »

I found this image on the forum. I've never seen these and it looks like they took production images of each prop. Does anyone have a higher resolution version of these? Is it part of a series of images floating around? I dig thru the Internet almost daily and the are new to me.

What is the prop in the top right image? :?:

Here is the largest I have on that full contact sheet, see link as upload size is too big for this forum

It's too big to be the ear plug, or is it?

not the same bat shape for the ear plug prop.
This contact sheet was made for the 1st/premier episode and that unknown bat was not used. Since it is shown grouped with the batarang perhaps another throwing item?

Thank you both for the help! Yeah that's not the Bat Ear Plugs. I actually don't recognize the middle gun or the prop to its left either but the pictures do
help me figure out the button at the bottom of the Bat Gauge.

The same gun Leslie Gore is holding is also seen in the opening of "Pop Goes The Joker"

Interestingly "Pop goes..." was shot around the time of the Batgirl Pilot and the Parks Gallery set is actually the same set that was re-dressed as the library for the Batgirl presentation.

Anyone has any better pics of Cesar's/leslie's gun? It looks like a modified machine gun, but I would love some close-ups of the barrel.

I've looked to ID the maker, cant seem to pinpoint it. Notice there were at least 4 made, maybe for some other movie or tv show? (wasnt Lost in Space)

Impressive set complete w/"THRUSH" (the primary foe of the UNCLE organization) symbol sticker on stock. Die-cut insert window reveals "Exclusive Clip Loading Magazine" And gun features storage space for standard roll caps. ©1966 MGM.The largest U.N.C.L.E. gun produced.

btw, It was on auction for 2-5 thousand so good luck finding one.

THRUSH GUN it is! Great find. I was looking for generic military toy rifles, not one TV related!

Like A.Pennyworth I've been looking at all sorts of generic toy machine guns for years trying to identify it and Randy solves the mystery in less than a day... Batman would be proud of your detective skills. :D
Now, below the barrel it looks like an acrylic tube with small acrylic discs, but it's hard to identify the shape of what's on top of the barrel

I just Googled 60s toy guns and rifles and concentrated on the unusual shapes in front of the handle...and got lucky but I still like the Batman comment. Lol

Yeah the design of the gun is all over the place. Someone stuck everything they could on them. It will be a challange to recreate. The top looks like alternating clear disc shapes going from vertical to horizontal and touching each other. I will try and draw it up today.

My take on what is the TRUSH gun and what is the add on parts. It looks like the Jokers gun has a cut out and add on piece to the side above the handle that the others don't have. And yes my work paid me to do this today. ;)
