"Hornet Gun, check!" Factory Entertainment is proud to present its Gas Gun and Kato Dart Prop Replicas from the 1966 TV series The Green Hornet. These officially licensed, 1:1 scale reproductions were created after exhaustive and careful study of surviving original props from the show, as well as archive materials, to ensure maximum accuracy. Limited to only 250 numbered pieces worldwide, each replica comes with a museum-quality display base with acrylic cover and includes a detailed prop story booklet, blueprint-style instructions, certificate of authenticity, and numbered Signature Edition plaque. The product is presented in a presentation-style box bearing the distinctive hornet moiré pattern.

This very special Signature Edition includes the ultimate endorsement, the hand-signed autograph of The Green Hornet himself, Van Williams, the actor who portrayed Britt Reid and his alter ego The Green Hornet in every one of the original episodes.

The Green Hornet Gas Gun is modeled on a hero prop used for close-up scenes. Its working features include a moving trigger mechanism and adjustable gas gauge. Push the release catch and a hidden door in the handle opens, containing a solid-metal gas cartridge that can be removed. The replica is hand crafted from aluminum, brass, zinc, and resin components. It has a heavyweight, high-quality feel and is finished in a two-tone green paint scheme that matches the prop seen in most episodes, as well as in the opening credits.

The Kato Dart Replica is similarly hand crafted and features a metal barb, molded body, and translucent wings. It's decorated with a yellow body design to match a dart prop thrown by Kato in the episode "Freeway To Death."

The Original Props:

As in his earlier radio and movie serial incarnations, the Green Hornet carried a futuristic and non-lethal sidearm, the Gas Gun, which as its name suggests, emitted a jet of gas that could be used subdue or incapacitate an opponent or even the occasional law-enforcement officer who attempted to thwart the Hornet's plans. A master of martial arts at close range, Kato would sometimes employ throwing darts against more long-distance targets.

Several different versions of the Gas Gun prop were used during the production of the original TV series. These ranged from very basic non-functional pieces for stunt or distance shots (often lacking detail and simply carved from wood or rubber) to more complex and detailed hero pieces for close-up or action shots. In the days before computer-aided special effects, there was even a version that could actually fire jets of colored powder for a pretty convincing onscreen gas effect. The original Gas Gun props were constructed from a number of found or recycled items, as well as custom-made elements that were combined to create a prop whose design foreshadowed a sleekly styled look that would be seen in real-world gun designs decades later.

Kato's throwing-dart props were created from the body of a wooden English pub-style dart. Wings and eyes were added to create a more distinct insect motif. The dart props were intended to emulate the shuriken throwing weapons used in some martial-arts disciplines. Ages 18 and up.
