Ready For Anything by Police-Box-Traveler Ready For Anything by Police-Box-Traveler
Let's face it, if you know what EVERY prop is in this picture, you're a nerd...I mean, I'm a bigger nerd because I OWN them all but you're a nerd for recognizing them XD

I figure with all these items, I'm pretty much ready for ANYTHING!


EDIT: OK guys, I decided to add what props are here.


The main biggie is the map they are all sitting on. THAT is the portal map from the Terry Gilliam directed film, Time Bandits.

Now in the dead center of the map is a curious brass device called an Omni from the short lived TV series Voyagers.

Behind the Omni is the exact replica used by the internet reviewer Linkara from Atop the Fourth Wall of his Magic Gun.

Below the gun is a strange key with a circular handle forming the letters O and Z from the 1985 film Return To OZ. This key opened the Kings store room where the clockwork man Tic-Tok was stashed away. It was sent to Dorthy while she was in Kansas on a shooting star by the Scarecrow.

In front of the Omni is a curious pendant of two intertwining snakes from the Neverending Story called the Auryn.

Then lastly of course, to the right are three objects from the classic Tom Baker run of Doctor Who of his Sonic Screwdriver, Tardis Key and Yo-yo...the yo-yo of course was used to detect gravitational anomalies.

Awesome.

When my 4th Doctor TARDIS key arrives from Mooncrest I think I'll have to do a "survival kit" of my own.

I particularly like the look of that Omni device.

Well it's definitely early steampunk. Taken apart it's all clock gears and copper wire. XD It's actually a full on time machine. What they MIGHT call a vortex manipulator in Doctor Who but I think this is a more friendly mode of time travel and is also more limited but I also think it's more elegant looking. I'm still modding the replica so I haven't done any new pictured yet. Need to mod some internals and I'd like to work some parts of the casing with a file. Once that's done I'm going to make a heavy black leather case for it to sit on my belt.

I'm Jealous, you've got three of the greatest Movie props in History (well in my opinion anyways) The Key of Oz, Auryn and the map to all the holes in time.
Reply
:iconpolice-box-traveler:
Police-Box-Traveler Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
lol, well, the map was the most expensive but the key to OZ is available on Shapeways in Steel, Silver and polished gold plated though the finish on the gold is kinda ugly looking XD I want to get the silver one someday but I went for steel first because of how old it looked. The Auryn is available for $34 on eBay and the Map on Etsy though that's a bit more, roughly $120 shipped but I know the maker is the same guy and it IS worth it. printed on heavy canvass and it's huge.

Not too many people recognize Linkaras gun. XD It took me a few tries to figure out the exact model XD As for Time Travel, aside from the Tardis, the map is of all the holes in the universe and the device in the center is a time machine as well XD

a compass time travel that would be epic though i think the doc wouldn't like it a space hopper to his sports car and a map of the holes of the universe even better wish i had all that stuff
Reply
:iconpolice-box-traveler:
Police-Box-Traveler Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012
Well, not a compass really but a clockwork wormhole generator. I'd have to guess this as a 500 model. It would only be good on Earth though which is fine. As fort he map, yeah that one is really fun since it even bridges fantasy worlds as well as real ones. :D

I can tell you where to get one. Etsy. The guy that made mine sells them there for the same price i paid which is roughly $120 shipped. They're made of heavy canvass in a full color print. He doesn't normally age them to look like in the movie but will do it if asked though which is how i got mine. He may also ask if you want it to be accurate to the film in that the clocks on one side of the map were cut off the filming prop but were there on the end credtits map. Not the cheapest prop but just so darned nice.

Linkara's Magic Gun, something that looks like the Alethiometer from His Dark Materials, the key to Oz, the Auryn, a Mark I Sonic Screwdriver, a Tardis Key…

The map I cannot recognize, but I'm gonna say "Stardust?", and that leaves only the yoyo. How did I do?

:iconpolice-box-traveler:
Police-Box-Traveler Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
Not bad actually. The device you think may be an Alethiometer is actually a time machine called an Omni from the TV series Voyagers from 1982. Short lived but still awesome! The map on the other hand is actually the map from the movie Time Bandits. ^_^

I love that key. ^_^ The snake necklace is called the Auryn and is from a movie called the Never Ending Story. I highly recommend it. ^_^

I wouldn't say that I love the film, just too...80's for me, although I do LOVE TikTok and their version of the TinMan...
I guess really if they had that necklace in Kinda or Snakedance it would imply they had a budget...which they somewhat didn't...

:iconpolice-box-traveler:
Police-Box-Traveler Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
It wasn't TOO 80's. I mean, all the practical effects, Jim Henson's son worked on some spectacular puppets, the Steampunk design work on Tic-Tok and the Tin Man, and amazing stop motion work on the Gnomes...amazing film. Now the Never Ending Story was sheer 80's XD

Yeah the budget for those stories was pretty non-existent wasn't it? XD

But the Wheelers....they're all neon tubing and metallic fabric, not to mention, terrible lol
I don't know, it all felt incredibly out of character for some reason, like they were trying to be clever. It lacked the charm and innocence of the original film. What don't get is, is it supposed to be a direct follow-on from the original Oz film, or is it a stand alone story
that follows different characters?

Pretty much yeah, having said that, I ADORE Kinda.
Watched the Power of Kroll lastnight. Big mistake. Fortunately the commentary from Baker and Leeson was immensly entertaining
The Androids of Tara on the other hand is amazingly satisfying

:iconpolice-box-traveler:
Police-Box-Traveler Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2012
Yeah but they weren't all that bad. They had to leave the organic origin behind and made them into odd mechanical monsters. I loved the creaky noises they made when they moved and laughed.

It's not a direct sequel to the original. Never mistake that. It was a continuation of the story but more true to the books and to the books tone. The two following books to the Wizard of OZ were pretty dark toned...well so was the first book anyway. And it didn't follow different characters. The Tin Man and the Lion and Scarecrow were there which is true to the books, so Dorthy made some new friends that helped her. At the end the Emerald City was restored and so were her other friends. It's dark, it's got wonderful effects that CG just can't replace and some amazing visuals.

I haven't picked up Kinda yet. I need to get the Kings Demons though. I remember really liking that one a lot. I have been trying to get caught up with my Tom Baker era stuff though. Just got the Android invasion since it was just released here.

I'm not sure why, but the whole thing does make my hairs stand on edge slightly, it all feels terribly dark in an 80s sort of way, too much going on I thought, loaded with perhaps too much visual spectacle, not really terribly stylish I'd say
I do like the physical character props though, they had a nice tactile mechanical feel to them

I hadn't seen Kinda before last year and I was massively impressed when I did see it, an extraordinary "mad" performance from one of the actors. I got the Kamelian set a while ago now, I must confess that the King's Demons is unspeakably dull lol
I was given the Key to Time set over Christmas which was nice, been watching them over the past few nights, really love the Pirate Planet and the Androids of Tara, two very satisfying stories, it makes me SO angry that Douglas Adams is gone, as you can be sure that he would have written an episode or two for nuwho. I feel horribly cheated

Really? I got a real Steam Punk quality out of it. Not too overly designed just to go "LOOK WHAT WE DID" which was a staple of a lot of projects the Henson's had worked on in the 80's. I had seen it when I was relatively young but I put it up there with the Never Ending Story, Dark Crystal, Labrynth, and Legend.

I don't know, I haven't seen the Kings Demons in a while but remember, I'm also the guy that loves Black Orchid and a lot of people seem to not like that one. I don't know why, they even ripped the story off to make the Unicorn and the Wasp. XD


I really need to complete my Key to Time set. I have the first three in Special Editions but haven't bought the rest yet. I di just pick up the Android Invasion though.


I do as well. I think we were all cheated with his passing XP
