Borg Mannequin from Star Trek: The Experience on eBay

On our recent trip to Las Vegas to get the assets of Star Trek: The Experience, we wound up with some amazing Borg Mannequins that were made by Paramount for Star Trek: The Experience.  All of the assets were brought back to the Propworx warehouse and then sorted and cataloged by Jarrod.  Some of the assets are up for sale in our upcoming Propworx Star Trek auction.  One of these Borg mannequins we put up for sale this week on eBay.  

And what is really cool about these Mannequins is the face.  Look familiar?  It appears to be Robin Williams!  Our speculation here is that Paramount used the face mold for Robin Williams from Bicentennial Man to make these Borg.

This particular mannequin needs a little attention, but is overall in good shape and would make an amazing display.  Sorry, no regeneration modules left!

You can bid on the auction on eBay here.

Note we changed the listing, so this is the new link.

The Sword of Kahless

I had made an off-hand comment about the Sword of Kahless from the Star Trek Experience being hero in a previous blog post, but it turned out to be a replica.  Fortunately, there are a lot of cool Star Trek collectors who immediately sent me screen caps and when we went to Vegas to pick up the assets, we confirmed it was indeed just a replica.  The hero is in someone's collection out there!  

I know Max Cervantes, prop maker extraordinaire, and an all around nice guy, had confirmed with me that there were 3 stunts made.  And all 3 are accounted for (one in my collection, one in my good friend Donna's collection and one with the CBS archive).  But we don't know who has the Hero.

Anyway, after a bunch of trolls on the Replica Prop Forum took cheap shots at me for mentioning that it was a hero (haters gonna hate!), I corrected the blog post and here offer some photos of Gill Hibben, who made lots of knives and Bat'Leth's for Star Trek, making the STTE Sword of Kahless.  Thanks to Brian Roskamp (Trekker670) for the photos.
