    Hi All!

    I, like many others, have a Tommy Ray Gun missing the beehive looking battery cover on the back -

    Do these EVER turn up? Is it a lost cause trying to complete this gun? Should i just sell it as is and buy a complete one??

    I bought this one because it came with a pretty nice shape box, but the gun could use some work :)

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Hi All!

    Not a space gun - but I didnt know where else to put it, and I thought you lovers of toy guns would like it!

    It's me latest art release titled "Shoot your eye out."

    It got a nice write up on this Art toy blog today, so if you are interested, I would love some feedback :)

    Ya the Zebra ii is on ebay, but I cant find the 80s orange version with that cardback...

    Im sure its just a patience game - But I seriously thought I would be able to get a dozen of them in the blink of an eye

    Hi All -

    Not really a ray gun, but it does have kinda spacey smooth lines - So I hope its OK to ask here -

    But this was like THE toy gun of my childhood. Kid of the 80's. Every Grocery store, 5 and 10, toy store, drug store all seemed to carry these Orange Rayline Zebra II guns. They were really cheap - I would buy a FEW each summer. My friends and I would go NUTS with them. Houses littered with yellow rubber BBs.... (The Rayline tracer gun in the 80s with similar packaging was a runner up - also cant seem to find one)

    I mean they were EVERYWHERE. So when I thought about buying a few as kind of a gag gift for my friends, I figured they would be a dime a dozen on ebay. But for the life of me, I cannot find a SINGLE ONE for sale.... Is there ANY reason for this?? I have no idea how they could be rare, as I remember it being harder to find a store that DIDNT have them, than did.

    There are some vintage ones on ebay - But I really just want the orange 80s version I grew up with...

    Anyone know the story behind it?





  6. Tyler H added a post in a topic: Might Have To Sell All - Value Question   

    Hi Guys -
    Due to circumstances, I might have to see my raygun collection

    I wanted to see what reasonable values on the following would be:

    Multi Colored Pyrotomic Disintegrator

    Really nice Buck rogers Liquid Helium with a C-6ish box

    Aqua Pilots squirt gun with Rare box (C-8.5 - 9 box)

    Dan Dare plastic Atomic Jet gun loose

    Buck Rogers 1930's childs helmet (The other material one (canvas) , not the leather)

    Just trying to see if the total value is worth selling to help with the situation-

    Thanks!
  7. Tyler H added a post in a topic: Plastic-Safe Rust Removing Lubricant ?   

    Hi All..

    Have a ray gun with a metal shaft, and a plastic sleeve that goes up and down it. However, the shaft is kind of rusty and makes the sliding of the plastic very difficult.

    I need something like WD-40 that removes rust and lubricates, but I hear WD-40 is bad for plastic.

    Any ideas?

    Hi All...

    Im restoring a Zooka POP pistol and chronicling it on my website. Thought you guys might like to follow or check it out. (Or help me figure out how to get it back together!!!)

    Here is where I am so far...

  10. Tyler H added a post in a topic: How Does Mechanism In Zooka Pop Pistol Work?   

    Hi All..

    I got a zooka pop pistol really cheap on ebay, just for the fun of restoration...

    A) It was a pain in the butt to disassemble

    B) Once disassembled, a spring falls out and I totally lose track of how the mechanism works...

    Anyone with more experience with this know how this goes together?

    Well.. I tried this weekend and the rust was in fact breaking through the litho more than I thought.. So complete resto - repaint time!

    I'm actually holding off on posting pics for the time being...

    Don't worry though, they will come!

    I was going to try a Mr Clean magic eraser.... Its a great tool!

    I got the gun for 20$ shipped, so I can experiment a little.. I bought it as a restoration project
  15. Tyler H added a post in a topic: How Do You Remove Surface Rust Off Of Lithographed Tin?   

    Hi All..

    I bought a cool ray gun on ebay and it looks REALLY rusty.. But, it looks like at least some of the rust is just covering the litho, not rusting through it..

    So my question is.. How can I remove rust without damaging the lithography??

    Thanks!
