Prop Store Staff Picks: Brian Cordoba’s Favourite Props

Our LA Copywriter Brian takes a moment to tell us about his favourite props and costumes from the Prop Store website…

The T-1000’s (Robert Patrick) Bullet-Hit Shirt

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Robert Patrick’s portrayal of the T-1000 is by far my favorite movie villain. Focused, cold and unstoppable, the character used to terrify me as a kid so naturally his uniform is one of my favorite pieces. I especially like the custom made display frame with the silver backing. Just a stunning piece from an all time action classic!

Temple Thuggee Sword With Scabbard

Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom

It’s no secret that I’m a big Indy fan, and his second (chronologically first) whip-cracking adventure was my favorite as a kid. There was something about the dark setting and the mysticism of the cultists that fascinated me, and this stunning Thuggee sword perfectly encapsulates the high-adventure feel of the film. Being a fan of both swords and Batman, this piece is definitely one of my favorites. Ra’s Al Ghul is a longtime villain in Batman lore, and Ken Watanabe is a remarkable actor. Knowing that this simple, elegant sword was used by Watanabe during Bruce Wayne’s departure from the League of Shadows is reason enough to want this great piece!

While many would disagree, I was thrilled with Ridley Scott’s return to the ‘Alien’ universe. True, the film had plenty of unsolved mysteries, but for me I was so happy to see Alien step away from the popcorn action that it turned into with the Alien Vs. Predator franchise. Re-exploring the Engineers vessel had me on the edge of my seat, and these masterfully crafted ampules are a brilliantly designed precursor to the instantly recognizable eggs from the classic films. A full set? Yes, please!

Steaming Oven Pie

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd! Certainly one of the best pies in London, this SFX steaming oven pie is too cool for words. The subject matter of the classic Stephen Sondheim musical is enough to give anyone a shudder down their spine, but this piece embodies (literally) the gruesome acts of Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett.
