Do you think this if the gun Burt had in Tremors 3?
I don't think either of those are exactly
the same gun as the on from T3- a "Ruger Mini-14
"- but ActionBurt says he's never been able to find one of those and thinks that they are not made (at least not 'bullpup' stock versions, with the magazine behind the handle). Burt's Mini-14, taken from T3's cover
However, in my opinon, they do bear an awesome
similarity to it! (Especially the second I think, aside from the green paint; maybe you could carefully paint it with black acrylic, if you wanted to) I'd love to expand my Burt's arsenal with one, but I don't know about spending the extra money right now (whenever I make my order- I've already decided to get the secondary vest, a pair of Clint Eastwood cowboy boots for Tyler, and a G-1 flight jacket for Tyler- and one of those key rings! I'd rather have the police kind, it looks like they have a loop that could be attached to a web belt, so maybe I could actually hang them from his gun belt like in The Series. Well, and a pair of silver wraparound sunglasses I found that I really like that bear no resemblance to anything from Tremors; maybe I'll put them on a Barbie or something, or they can stand in for Tyler's sunglasses until I get some smaller black ones from War-Toys).
My thought on Burt's arsenal is this, though; you might want to get a Betsy, and you might be interested enough to look for the few other guns he wields in The Series (I'd like to have whatever that is at the beginning of NotS that Burt uses to shoot the first shrieker), but when it comes to buying guns from the earlier movies, I don't mind being a little imprecise, since I figure he had to replace them all anyway; they wouldn't be perfect copies. He might even replace one gun with another similar one instead of hunting up the same model. I'm aiming to get Burt some kind of elephant gun (among other uses, as a secondary Graboid hunting gun; if Burt and Tyler went on assignment hunting Graboids again, it would make sense for Tyler to have a backup weapon, not just Burt. That also helps keep anything like what happened in the end of A Little Paranoia Among Friends from happening again; that ought to be reason enough for Burt to make sure Tyler brings his own!), but just because he used a certain model in T1, I wouldn't mind not getting that exact
model, since it's a "replacement" anyway. *shrugs*
I'd also love to get one of these
or similar, because, as ActionBurt pointed it out to me, the gun Tyler uses in Shriek and Destroy is a sawed/off "shorty" AK 47 without the wooden shoulder support part. I think he only used four guns in the series; an M-16 (I think; in Night of the Shriekers), Burt's desert eagle (Shriek and Destroy), his silly little revolver from Project 4-12 and Flora or Fauna, and the AK 47. I'm not a gun person, but I'd really like my figures to be authentic as possible, and after the lengths I went to getting Burt not only a Barrett .50 but a SOTW one (with the newer muzzle design), it seems like the least I could do is find a "shorty" AK-47 for Tyler. Until then I have Tyler carrying (when I have them posed with their guns- sometimes I put the guns back in the box and have my figures just stand, I don't really have much of a display place for them, my bookshelf got kinda messy again post-picture taking) the normal AK-47 (unless it's not an AK-47; again, this is
a by-eye identification from a person who doesn't know guns very well)
Are those air soft guns?
The entire post is about action figures, so no. Those are all miniature plastic or metal 1:6 scale (the huge barretts are about 9" long, the handguns are barely an inch, and so on).
Is that an M-249 SAW? The big gun in the middle on the bottom row.
Sorry, I haven't a clue. It's from a GI Joe weapons set that didn't label anything. There are similar guns on Opsgear refferred to as "SAW"s, so maybe so.
Incidentally, Brian, how is your figure going? What kind of parts do you have in so far, or are waiting on, and what do you have in mind to order in the near future? My figures haven't changed much since the pictures I took, but sometime soon I'm really trying to get at least part of this:
Secondary/tan vest for Burt
Adventure Gear Flannel field shirt for Burt (preferably red; eventually I want to get a rust one, so with the tan vest I can recreate his Project 4-12 outfit. Actually, I'd like all four colors...)
Jeans for Tyler, preferably Dragon
Cowboy boots for Tyler
Red shirt for Tyler (if I can find any anywhere; they're apparently pretty rare in non-Ken brands)
Clay for molding Tyler's hair (I'm thinking that if I shape it on, and it sticks but no longer sticks once dry, I might keep it removeable- allowing Tyler to still be able to change shirts! Maybe I could even mold more than one hair piece if this worked out, one that a hat fits on and one for when he's got his hat off, with the front of the hair all poofed out)
Belt with a buckle for Burt (he has a pants belt, gun web belt, and a web belt on his vest. I currently have a green web belt standing in for the pants belt, and it's bugging me)
Belt with a buckle for Tyler (I have a "on-assignment gun belt" made up for Tyler, just a green web belt with a leather holster containing the silver pistol with the brown handle; but I don't have a pants belt, and I want one)
Keys for Burt's Belt
Cigarette Lighter for Burt's vest
Toothbrush for Burt's vest (I can't find any barbie ones; perhaps I could buy a new one somewhere for cheaper than those War Toys tooshbrushes- with some actual toothpaste, too)
Leatherman/pocket knife/pliers/swiss army knife for Burt's vest
Cowboy hat for Tyler
1" working cyalume fishing bobber sticks that would fit in my Burt's vest pockets; I got some 1 1/2" sticks that are too long
MRE meal kit set
Ideally, I'll be slowly collecting these as the year goes on. If/when I find a GI Joe/SOTW figure/etc. that will work well enough for Twitchell as I'm hoping, I want to buy one of those black suits from Opsgear; I have a high-collar dressy WW2 shirt from SOTW (the velcro isn't too noticeable when done up with a tie over it) and a OD green WW2 tie that'll make do until I'm willing to spend 4+ on a nice tie for him. I also have a pair of Joe FBI agent "boots" that look enough like dress shoes to be good enough for me, and a pair of black socks (I have Burt and Tyler in socks as well- I like socks, and these guys have some seriously ugly feet to cover up), and I'll get him another one of those watches for a wrist seismo. So really, Twitchell will only cost as much as the figure itself costs- double that if I want to do a head swap if he's on a 13" tall figure or something- plus $12 for a suit and $1 or less for the seismo. I even have a nice pair of sunglasses that would fit a Dragon Models or certain GI Joe heads. So if you see a head that looks like Twitchell, please let me know, and know exactly where you found it!
Jodi shouldn't cost too much either; a fairly common nude figure for $12, add barbie clothes (unless they don't fit...) and any new items I want to track down, and figure something out about those shoes- if Barbie shoes won't fit (highly probable) I might be able to get a pair of sneaker "combat boots" that would fit and look okay. The hiking-type spikes on the bottom are appropriate to the environment of Perfection; you might notice Rosalita waars hiking boots constantly.
And then I want to do a head-swap with Burt, put him on a 21st century toys figure with a full set of differently posed interchangeable hands. The absolute ideal here would be if I could also steal a Joe's poseable hands (the newer ones with the moving fingers) and make them compatable with the 21st Century Toys figure, because War-Toys has a pair of gloves- one mitten shaped, one mitten shaped with a seperate index finger- and then I could have a poseable pair of optional hands with REAL gloves on! I have no idea how to do this, though, but it would be very cool- think of Burt's driving/gun-wrangling gloves from The Series. The half-gloves are pretty cool, and very versatile, but I'd love it if I could do something like this, too.
