My first prop posting in this forum. Just a few small Alien(s) items I picked up in the last few years. The only other Alien(s) props I own are a latex Aliens facehugger and an unfinished real Remington/SPAS/Thompson pulse rifle with HGC metal shrouds.

My poor dipping birds had lost their feathers at some point over the last few decades so I added their plumage myself Smile

Incidentally, does anyone know the correct product name for the Tupperware Alien Nostromo cups? I'd like to add one.







Real Pulsemeter with original canvas strap.

Hey Kurtyboy welcome to propsummit! I've seen you over at RPF?? Is that SDstudios locator the stunt or the Hero (working electronics)? It's a very cool piece. Where did you source the pulsemeter? Happy holidays

Merry Christmas! I've been a member at Propsummit for a few years but normally only post in the Bladerunner section. Maybe made 2 or 3 posts in the Alien section but this is my first showing off any props.

It is indeed an SD hero 'working' locator. The Pulsemeter came from ebay (where else!? Wink).

I have 2 of those Tupperware mugs. On the bottom, one has the number 1312-49, and the other has 1312-51.
Both appear identical, so I'm not sure what the numbers represent.

If you run a web search for Tupperware coffee cup or Tupperware coffee mug, you'll probably come up with several hits. Getting white ones took me a while, though.

White ones are hard to find... I noticed! LOL

Even searching for Tupperware 1312 returns many NON white ones...

Fred has white one I believe...it's true though, hard to find, but a spray-can with white paint can do wonder if everything else fails Wink

My Pulse Rifle was finally completed a few months ago after over three years in the making. The Thompson, Frenchi and Remington parts are all real, plus metal shrouds painted in vintage Humbrol and darkened with black effects wax as used on the originals, and custom machined add-on parts using correct thickness metal which all other replicas get wrong. Even the grip and ammo mag are the original Thompson parts. Sling by Noble. Definitely one of the most accurate ever built.

I can only take credit for funding and 1% of the work. The rest was done by Sidewinder.

So, all the items in the following picture are original:


I couldn't find my 4 in 1 flashlight so I photoshopped it into the next picture which also features my non-original Alien(s) items!
