Sean Michael Ragan takes us on a tour of his obsession with the toy ray-guns of Edison Giacattoli, which apparently inspired some of the prop guns in Firefly.
The ray guns of Edison Giacattoli (Thanks, Sean Michael!)
On the back of the box were pictures of the other guns in the TH3 line. They all looked pretty cool, but the "Super Thur LR," shown above, was by far the most drool-inducing. Alas, as every collector knows, there's always One That Got Away, and, in the five or so years I've been collecting EG ray guns, I've never even seen any evidence that a Super Thur LR was ever manufactured or sold. I've had a number of automatic searches running for years now without so much as a glimmer. If anyone out there has one, I'm prepared to pay handsomely for it. Please contact me.
