    We're getting a bit loose with our definition of "prop" here. According to Wiki:
    Those famous ruby slippers are wardrobe items, not props. And the Light Cycles from Tron were computer-animated; they never existed in physical form.

    That's a pretty awesome effort.

    Flynn's old lightcycle from Tron: Legacy was a prop. It wasn't CGI.

    No problem. What sort of junk bits did you use? Was that part of a multimeter?

    A lot of it was just random odds and ends. I gutted a lot of old non functioning electronics. That was indeed a multi meter with an auto dimmer switch put on top of it. The main skeleton of the shrink ray itself is a metal tool organizer and two bathroom baskets. The table itself is an old dollar store wind chime display rack that was thrown out with a freezer rack holding it up. It's all held together with zip ties so it's very sturdy.

    Fossils, that reminds me of the cast made of the Id monster's footprint. That would be cool.

    From the same film, Morbius's music box.

    The radio from Gilligan's Island was always a favorite.

    A commlock from Space: 1999 is pretty awesome tech, too.

    The Spindrift miniature the giants used to lug around.

    Varian's sonic screwdriver from Fantastic Journey.

    I think FabgearUSA has the Spindrift model for sale but they can be kind of pricey.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    Gray's Sports Almanac from Back to the Future, Part II (although I'd probably get more mileage out of an issue of Ooh-La-La).

    Daredevil's billyclub from the 2003 movie. (When I go out with my umbrella, I wave it around and pretend I'm Daredevil when I think that no one is looking.)
