Thinkgeek.
Yes, I really live in Los Angeles. Srsly. And yeah, life really does imitate art here. Especially now we've got those video billboards. No spinners yet. But I suppose that's next.

i agree.. are the cheapest around the net? btw there's a some kind of mistaken about the entire lightning of the shaft because they aren't made in the same way as the movie: http://www.yourprops.com/view_item.php?movie_prop=12194

I wouldn't be quick to call it a "mistake." They're inspired by the movie and probably not meant to be the exact same thing. That's for the prop experts like Richard Coyle. However, they serve the same function -- lighting while protecting from rain -- and cost less.

I'm a fan myself, but there's a certain point you reach (like wanting a 100% accurate replica of something only seen in the hands of background extras) where it gets to be a little much. :wink:

I want one of the umbrellas from the BR 2007 Bradbury party gift bags.

It is the same umbrella with a silk screened logo, and a cool box. But yeah, I want one too.
