About this deal

The decision was then made to cast this piece in metal and finish with a proper patina, befitting of a relic of its age and origin. In the Stop 'N Snack deleted scene, Troy grabs the map, rolls it, and lights up the end like a cigarette. From here I was able to digitally tweak all the elements until they were as close to screen-accurate as I could make them, and put them back into Inkscape.

If you're anything like me you made pirate maps as a kid and probably just held the edges over a flame. I'm very happy with the result, I think it is the most plausible and screen-accurate version of the map I have seen anywhere!And you probably discovered that this is hard to control as half your map burned away before you could stop it! I have replicated the main prop shown in the close-up shots, which differs in several way from the back-up prop maps.

Riva reportedly spent an entire day in a hotel room pouring coffee on the map and smudging it to make it look old and frail. A surviving map that was given away as a 'wrap gift' at the film's completion serves as the base for this replica. A good tip is to put down some kitchen foil under the map -this speeds up the process and gives even even more control with the reflected heat.

Having been highly recommended to Magnoli Props as a premier replicator of this very map I decided to give it a go. We only need about an inch to an inch and a half of overlap, so measure them up and cut off the excess paper. I came up with plausible Spanish sentences for the indecipherable text, and tweaked the riddles so they reflect what the characters actually say in the movie. Michael Riva personally aged the map, using mink oil to darken the paper and a Bunsen burner to burn the edges. The back of the prop has the musical notes, just one of the many clues which lead the Goonies to One-Eyed Willy's treasure.

The old, weathered, leathery map was a piece of movie magic that was handmade by Riva during the film's early production.

INPRNT values your privacy and strives to be transparent about how we collect and use your information. the last thing to do to complete your map is thread your piece of string through the hole you cut on the right side of the map. When we first see it in the Walsh's attic it is very stained with red ink splatter and spilled wax, and it bears lots of indecipherable text.As you do this, keep in mind that the two "C" shaped curved lines on the front of the map will need to stay glue and crease free for the most part.
