    What's your favourite prop(s) from either movies or TV? You can name more then one.

    For me these are some of my favourites.

    The full size mockup of the Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars movies
    The Blade Runner spinner
    The time machine from the remake of the movie of the same name, was made with brass and glass panels and it looked impressive.
    Doc Brown's Delorean of course because time travel should be done in style.
    The time machine from Timeless. As a design it was kind of cool to look at.

    I loved the original Time Machine as well. So iconic. And that's the design that the one in Time After Time was based on, I believe. It's got a Steampunk/Vernish feel to it.

    I love movie guns. They are sometimes overdesigned but they always more then often look cool.

    Cool thread. So many, but I would say The Map, from Time Bandits. I always wanted to see that up close. I got one with the DVD, but not quite the same.

    If I could have a collection of props, it would include:
    The Booth from Bill & Ted

    River’s Diary

    Heywood Floyd’s laptop from 2010.

    The Transforming Sky Scraper robot from Big.

    The one Ring from TLotR

    Red Martian dollars from Total Recall

    Green crystal from Superman

    The sword from Highlander

    If we're going to talk about time machine's then I nominate the TARDIS and its console room.
    Then there's the Martian war machines from George Pal's War of the Worlds.

    I've always wished I could have the full-size Proteus submarine from Fantastic Voyage. Don't know where I'd put it, though.

    Back yard if you have one. Would be a fantastic thing for kids to climb on or adults even.
