Robotech/V toy Rifle

This toy was originally marketed in 1985
by Arco toys which was the company that made the licensed V toy weapons marketed in the US many of which are quite rare and relatively unknown as this piece is. This basically is a toy dart gun rifle made to resemble a visitor laser rifle from the V tv series. This gun was also marketed in V packaging but the ones in V packaging are quite rare.

This weapon was purchased in quantity by Laird Studios which handled most of the special effects work for the live action Masters of the Universe movie. Laird Studios modified and dressed up several of these as a possible weapon for use in the movie. The weapons were generally painted black and the clear tube at the top was often colored in a darkish color as well. The shoulder stocks since they were plastic and quite fake were often not used to give the gun greater realism.

Ultimately this weapon was decided to be unsuitable for use in the Masters of the Universe movie but its connection to Laird studios has promted the idea that these weapons were background V weapons. Such was clearly evident in 1998 when several of these were sold on ebay as V prop weapons.
