More Prop Store

Yet more things have been added to The Prop Store’s grand sale of Red Dwarf props since G&T last reported on it. The new items are:

Item Series/Episode Price
Kochanski P.E. Kit Krytie TV £235
The Triplicator Demons & Angels £1015
Full Size Light Up Consol Back In The Red £545
Complete Naked Kryten Suit ‘Back In The Red’ Part One, Krytie TV £1955
Pre-programmed Potato Virus Bottle ‘Pete’ Part One £155
Lister’s Stunt Electric Guitar ‘Back In The Red’ Part One £465
Kryten Basketball Costume ‘Pete’ Part One £465
Kryten Hand Marooned (deleted scene) £585
Rimmer Holoship Costume Holoship £1014
Can Of Cola Only The Good… £75

A photo of The Triplicator. I bet it doesn't work.The two best items are of course Rimmer’s Holoship uniform (I know a certain female who would be very keen to get hold of that), and the Triplicator – we’re informed that “One of the trays still contains what appears to be the ‘bad’ strawberry goop!” I myself would obviously like Kochanski’s P.E. kit, but I suspect we’ve probably run out of hilarious “jokes” in that whole area. People might actually think I’m serious when I say that I really want to get hold of that costume and toss myself off into it over and over and over again until I’m covered in my own spunk, and that would never do.

Incidentally, it’s well worth actually visiting the Prop Store website – not only does it has loads of fab pictures of the items from many different angles, but you can also pick up some fascinating trivia…

  1. what the fuck

  2. is it just me or is this article Totally Fucked?

  3. Curious. It’s as though we’re experiencing relative HTML dilation in an amazingly compressed space.

  4. True, but as HTML dilations in amazingly compressed spaces go, I think you’re really cute.

  5. G&T Admin

    I’ve checked the backend and it’s not worth fixing. I quite like it as it is.

  6. Were there any nice pictures of Red Dwarf props before it imploded?

  7. Can someone explain to me where the smeg I got this traffic cone?

  8. >Were there any nice pictures of Red Dwarf props before it imploded?

    One of my favorites. good old Triplicator.

  9. Wow that looks nothing like the triplicator I remember. You see like none of it in the actual show, i thought it was just three dishes and some knobbly bits on top. Makes sense that it has a keyboard, though, given that we see Lister/Kryten typing on it.

    Also the fucked up HTML on this page is cooler on mobile, it’s comparatively boring on PC

  10. They should sell lightbees, I can’t imagine they’d be hard to produce and I think they’d sell well

    Yeah its amazing how much detail was put into the prop





  12. Why would the triplicator need a Hold Tone?

  13. woah, that Triplicator prop looks amazing. I like how the different sections can fold up into a cube.

    are there any more hi-res pictures of Red Dwarf props? I recall seeing some of the Mirror Universe Generator from VIII a while back, but that’s about it.

  14. I think the quality varies.




  15. Rimmers School letter from Dimension jump

    Rimmers Diary from Stasis leak



    Rimmers Red Costume

  16. Ignore the weird alien thing from matrix. wrong link.

  17. The mirror universe machine is such a good prop. It’s a shame it was in such a terrible episode. The time wand is about as good as the episode it was in haha

    Thanks for salvaging the pictures. I check the Prop store semi regularly now and snaffle up the red dwarf prop picture goodness but I have a huge gap from whenever Prop Store got a website to about 2014 haha









  18. There are quite alot of props sold since the prop store opened

  19. I know they sold the OG Psi scan around 2012 I think because I went to the way back machine to try and get the pictures. Recently they’ve sold the AR machine goggles and a Mk2 bazookoid. The scanner bed from XI,XII and Prometheus is on there too at the moment I think.

  20. Rimmer’s school letter just being indecipherable gibberish and then signed “yours smeggingly, Roger Moore” made me do a lol

  21. Few of those not working for me. It’s a shame Prop store don’t just have a Imgur account or something. It’s great to look at them because it’s unlikely I’ll ever own something really cool prop wise because even a not as iconic bazookoid was £4000 I think. And just thought, if that white thing Kryten has in Polymorph is a psi scan then the one they had wasn’t OG. It was the recognisable one though.

  22. These pictures are fantastic, thanks for reposting them.

  23. yeah, it’s lovely to see all the props close-up. there’s so much detail to them that you never really get to see onscreen.

  24. I’m alarmed to discover that, not only is A-Z of Red Dwarf some kind of medical dictionary, but the title on the spine is in the wrong direction.

  25. In France (and other countries), titles run the other way down book spines, so I think the A-Z is just an indication of Red Dwarf’s multicultural melting-pot future.

  26. H Branding Iron

  27. I like the way there’s two versions of each of the Stasis Leak wedding photo poses (one with Lister happy, one with Lister miserable)…but I still don’t get the justification for why that was necessary.

  28. Ooh, we used to have that red beaker back in the day!

  29. Dax, was your comment that “the quality varies” a dig at the mirror universe generator? I think the prop gets bashed somewhat unfairly for how it was used in the episode rather than how the prop itself looks, those high res images look quite nice.

  30. I want to own the Matter Paddle now.

  31. >Dax, was your comment that “the quality varies” a dig at the mirror universe generator?

    No in general some of the images are clearer than others XD

  32. Those cards are just a (nice) set of cards which you can get on eBay for £50. Grimaud Grand Prix 75/76 I believe.

    Also are some of these photos not working for others? I’ve got a few not displaying.

  33. it’s amusing how Hollister says nobody knows how to work the Timewand, yet the prop only has 9 buttons, all of which are just numbers 1-9. Is a machine with 9 buttons really too hard for the crew of an incredibly complex mining ship to figure out?

  34. also yeah, what is up with the Stasis Leak photographs? There’s surely meant to be some reason that there’s happy/sad variants, but I have no clue why.

  35. Probably so they had several options to choose from when the episode was being filmed; just so they didn’t have to do it again for a better photo, idk

  36. >Also are some of these photos not working for others? I’ve got a few not displaying.

    If its the ones under the stress balls. i messed the codes up.

  37. >Probably so they had several options to choose from when the episode was being filmed; just so they didn’t have to do it again for a better photo, idk

    To clarify my earlier post, I know why they have happy/sad variants and I know why they took plenty of different poses.

    Two photos (happy/sad) are used in the episode, proper (the middle ones in Dax’s post). I’m just wondering why there was that edict from the production crew when they were taking photos, when it doesn’t make sense for the photo to become “sad” when Lister looks at it later in the episode

  38. G&T Admin

    Who’d have thought that someone noticing a broken-formatted post from nearly 15 years ago would result in such joy? Thanks for these, Dax.

  39. It’s funny because I was going to make a forum topic about getting reference for Red Dwarf props for general being interested and cosplay shiz for DJ if that’s your bag, since the official site has really low res/ useless images with a scanline effect over them, and the Replica Prop Forum is a bit shite when it comes to Red Dwarf.

    This is so much better than I imagined that thread might be though. So yeah, thanks, Dax.

  40. Don’t know if that last one worked but here it is again


  41. >Anymore costumes?

    Maybe a few.

  42. Nelly

    Pete Tranter’s Sister

  43. So in Dimension Jump, Danny was reading the in-flight magazine text pasted right next to a capsule for a film he was in!

  44. I’d like to nominate ‘Talkie Sew n Sew’ for ‘thing I’d like to be brought back for XIII’.

  45. Would anyone like any doilies?

  46. G&T Admin

    Fixed this page, because IT WAS ANNOYING.

  47. Ian, please unfix this page for us

  48. Talkie Sew n Sew is the best gag to appear in Red Dwarf post 1993.

  49. I like the way the slight shitness and shoddiness of those food props and the other commodities actually works in the show’s favour.

  50. Coconut massage milk of magnesia? I recognise that bottle.

    Also the graphic design on those veg cans is tremendous.

  51. I have a theory that the Red Dwarf logo on those cans was designed before they’d decided on/ thought about standardising a logo for the show itself. Both that and the more familiar one (without red D’s) pop up in episodes in series III.

    I have no way of proving this theory, mind.

  52. No idea what this prop was used for.

  53. Deleted scene props


    Prop that wasn’t used for Series 7 (Blue)

  54. Quarantine axe case

  55. Could be the Kryten head that falls off and bounces in that stupid VIII scene where his “hand” inflates.

  56. >Prop that wasn’t used for Series 7 (Blue)

    It’s also in the deleted grey bunkroom scene from Back In The Red when Rimmer reveals he’s pilfered a load of stuff from Starbug’s wreckage.

  57. Could be the Kryten head that falls off and bounces in that stupid VIII scene where his “hand” inflates.

    It’s from a V mould by the looks of it. It’s also terrifying.

    I doubt that was in an episode to be honest with that paint job. Out of GNPs office perhaps? Or maybe it was sent to Sevans as reference.

    It’s obviously pulled from an actual mould but that ain’t an onscreen quality paintjob.

    This has always been my theory too, and I plan to prove it in an article I intend to write about the history of Red Dwarf’s logo which will be published in 2042.

  59. “Can of Cola… £75”
    Christ, I remember the days of complaining they were £1.20

  60. >I intend to write about the history of Red Dwarf’s logo which will be published in 2042.

    I’m not going anywhere.

  61. The ‘famous’ logo was designed by Dewynters at some point in 1989 for the cover of Infinity, which came out less than four weeks after III wrapped and a couple of weeks before it aired, meaning the book cover would have existed in proof form while III was being made. This makes it more than possible that the III props with the ‘real’ logo were based off the book cover, which obviously also made its way into the title sequence.

    When did the slick, standardised, trademarked, tight-kerned-serif-extra-bold one first appear? The Making Of Red Dwarf book? Weird that The Quiz Book came out after that and reverted to the then-traditional ‘random elipse crashing at speed into Times New Roman Bold’ car crash, or indeed that it took until Xtended at the end of 1997 for BBC Video to adopt an already-three-and-a-half-years-old logo. I don’t think even the VII titles use a 100% accurate version. But in the pre-legacy-brand days it was on Son Of Soup, Log 1996, the 2nd Revised Programme Guide, Last Human, Backwards, the Survival Manual, Re-Mastered, and VIII on-screen (although all the VIII merch uses an alternate, textured/rendered version that we never saw again.) Not as much as you’d expect.

Not as much as you’d expect.

    The Australian series IV VHS tapes had a version of the serif logo on, which I thought was odd assuming they came out somewhere around the same time as the UK ones, and again assuming they came out around 92 (I were but a lad at the time, I can’t remember) – that’s a big assumption though as I say since Australians regularly get shafted when it comes to things getting to them in a timely fashion.

  63. I’d nominate your post for hall of fame status, Darrell, were it not for the fact that the hall is populated with innuendo and flippant remarks and would look distinctly out of place.

    >I don’t think even the VII titles use a 100% accurate version.

    No, they don’t. The D’s are all wrong. Maybe that’s why they made the logo all small.

    >The Australian series IV VHS tapes had a version of the serif logo on, which I thought was odd assuming they came out somewhere around the same time as the UK ones,

    The UK Series IV VHS were re-released with the serif logo on the cover (with a weird 3D bit), as they were the ones I had in 1994.
