Forbidden Planet 1956 Blaster Ray Gun - Original
ebay - dr-gogol
This is an original screen-used Blaster Ray Gun from the 1956 sci-fi MGM classic FORBIDDEN PLANET. This is in unrestored original condition, just as it came from the studio. This is a beautifully made prop constructed of a white formed-plastic body with a clear Plexiglas tip and a brass turned decoration. The back cap is of metal (probably Aluminum). It comes with a form-ftted leather holster. This prop comes directly from the largest collection on the film. The current owner obtained this from MGM Studios in Culver City in the early 1970s and it's been in his private collection ever since. The prop is in great condition for it age. For those who collect only items that look new, the owner has offered to have the gun restored for the buyer at an additional cost of $750.00 (personally I think it should be left as is). Truly a great piece. This is a No Reserve auction. This prop will make an amazing and exquisite centerpiece to any collection on this classic film (or alternately The Queen of Outer Space or The Maltese Bippy - they were later used in these films). This is a VERY rare opportunity to own a wonderful piece of film history. The only other such gun to come up at auction ever went for over $40,000.00.
