You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!

What kid didn't want their own Red Beamer laser rifle?  Chunk-a-Nuke props brings us this conjectural "Fallout" prop inspired by the classic Red Ryder BB gun.

I really enjoy this prop. It has the feel of a late 1940s tin toy and the appearance of wear and use. Propnomicon can really dig them up. Here’s a site about the Lehmann company, a maker of tin toys from the 1890s to the 1960. Most important for prop makers, many of the original pasteboard boxes appear with the toys.

A blog about tin toy catalogues which gives the advertising spin on toys for propmakers

Finally for those of you who remember commercials of this ilk, but done in parody form from the makers of Ren and Stimpy, Log (from Blammo): and Log 2

Yes, the Red Beamer will definitely shoot your eye out . . . kid.
