    Doc Brown's DeLorean time machine, hands down. It's my dream to one day buy a DeLorean and make it up to look exactly like the one in the movie.

    Proton Pack - Ghost Busters (I'm eventually going to build one, if I can find good specifications for one online [not an ACTUAL proton pack, but a prop])

    Constable Odo's bucket from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

    The Stargate from Stargate & Stargate SG-1.

    Doc Ock's arms from Spider-Man 2.

    Luke Skywalker's green lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.

    Admiral Al Calavicci's handling from Quantum Leap.

    Those are the first to come to mind...

    Yeah, but it wouldn't be the real thing.

    A Klingon Bat'leth.

    That thing with the red lights which move back and forth but has no discernible function of any kind. :lol: It's at 1:45 here:

    For "hand" props, TOS Phaser 2.

    If full-sized vehicles count, the 1966 Batmobile.

    If shooting models count, the Harper Goff Nautilus.

    I have often wondered what the hell that thing is even supposed to be besides a cool light? It's appeared in a lot of shows with few modifications.

    In fact I'm pretty sure it's been in Star Trek too.

    Speaking of non-functional moving lights, this gizmo has spent plenty of time in front of a camera.

    I'v always thought it would be cool to own that thing -- assuming it hasn't been lost or destroyed by now.

    Thank you... And it looked pretty unmodified too. I just looked up pictures.

    It's hard to pick a favorite. There are so many that I love - most of which have already been mentioned. But if I had to pick one, it would be the DB-5. (Funny enough, GF is one of my least favorite Bond films.)

    Though as far as "best," it's pretty hard to argue against the ruby slippers.

    Just thought of one: the fossilized Creature hand from THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON.

    Or maybe the wolf-headed cane from the original 1941 version of THE WOLF MAN?
