Samaritan packaged round
Standard Good Samaritan round as issued by the BPRD in its closed packaging.
Created from a careful study of the movie and of the great references from the last Propstore auction. Made from the same materials a Hero round would have used in all its glory and authentic flaws!
Each round is turned by hand from brass and aluminium and the markings on the bottom are hammered by hand with a laser etched steel stamp for the greatest authenticity possible.
They are approximately 100g each and feel great in the hand. The body diameter is 22mm, the base is just under 25mm and they are around 6cm long. They are made to fit the cylinder from Tip Top workshop’s run of Samaritans although I can’t predict the paint thickness or anything like that but I don’t see any reasons to open the packaging in this case ;-)
The packaging itself is printed on a special pearl grey paper to be as close as possible to the off-white paper used for the movie, it is then glued onto a packaging cardboard sheet for added strength. Each sheet surface and borders are then burnished by hand to get a slight shine to it and nice and clean shiny edges. The plastic cover is vacuformed from a clear sheet of PETG plastic, voluntarily replicating the “quick and dirty” look of the movie packagings with all random folds in the plastic cover. They are then glued carefully on the cardboard sheet with a mix of acetone and 3M green glue. The glue is as uniform as humanly possible but it’s not as perfect as an industrial packaging, this is the same way it’s been made in the movie, however, they should not come apart as the glue really fused the plastic into the paper :-)
Keep away from too much moisture if possible as it is cardboard and will probably bend with time just like the originals. No idea if the PETG will yellow as much though!
