Romeo + Juliet: Hero Pistols

Posted in Design, Physical Object, Weapons with tags , on February 13, 2011 by Staff Writer

Years ago, I saw these two photos online. I have no idea where or when they were taken, or by whom. They appear to show a display of many of the hero guns from Romeo + Juliet. They contain no EXIF data, only their date of creation: 2003. It is a reasonable guess that the photos were taken no later than that. Note the chipped magazine baseplates on Tybalt’s guns.

This is an HD screen capture of Arnold’s nose tracker bug. Note what is probably a green LED at the top.

This frame shows Quaid’s wrist hologram projector, just as he first finds it and turns it on. Note the two different screws on top, and the execution of the hinge.

Total Recall (1990): Quaid’s Briefcase Contents

This frame from Total recall show’s Arnold’s trip-to-Mars supplies: a fake ID from Pyramid Mines, bundles of red Mars money, and a mysterious red pamphlet labeled Hoffman. My best guess is that the Hoffman thingy contains tickets for the trip. Note, already in the briefcase is a swath of yellow fabric and what appears to be a rubber mask – likely the components of Arnold’s disguise as the fat woman.
