Sadly most of the objects we see in The Avengers will be destroyed by now, but if you could have your pick of any item or object used in The Avengers which would it be (cars excluded). Adding an image or screenshot is appreciated.

It's almost a certainty that the vast majority of the props used on the series have long since been lost or destroyed, it's very, very sad and that's what inspired me to recreate many of them as accurately as my ability allows. There have been many of Steed's bowlers seen over the decades but during all the years when I was a serious collector I only ever came across, well, two original props, The Destruction of Emma Peel clapperboard from Epic & Steed's red Priority pass from The Positive Negative Man. One of the Winged Avenger heads apparently still exits (although I don't think it's ever actually been seen), and What little remains of George Oblique Stroke XR40 (which is virtually nothing). Of course Emma's blue catsuit was on the Antiques Roadshow (although the authenticity of that is as I understand it, dubious), then recently her dress from Honey for the Prince and her suede boots have turned up, although these are of course costumes rather than actual props.

I always wanted a Cybernaut, and of course (although a replica), now I have one Wink

I could think of a couple trinkets

1) The charm bracelet from How to Succeed at Murder. I could see that might actually still exist. Or even Henrietta

2) I only wish one of the inflated props from Mission Highly Improbably still existed

3) The amenesia gun from Forget Me Knot

4) any of the panel artwork from The Winged Avenger

That oversized prop phone was amazing, especially for the year. I always liked the giant ink pen - Oh No Rolling Eyes

It's your recreations that made the question pop up in my head. (They're wonderful by the way.) Do you have pictures of the red security pass from The Positive Negative Man?

Thank you Allard, I appreciate that.
I used to own the original red priority pass prop years ago, I sold it along with everything else in the early 2000's. It's for that reason that I've been reluctant to recreate it. However before I sold it I did take a 600dpi scan of it which I still have somewhere. Odd item, it was actually just a piece of resin painted red with 'letraset' lettering. Very rough looking and basic up close. I'll get around to making it using my scan eventually.
