NOTE: Both items are EXACT replicas of the guns used in Neill Blomkamp's District 9, designed by Dr Grordbort's designer Greg Broadmore and modelled on the actual props created by the artists and craftspeople at Weta Workshop.
This gun comes battle worn, alien gunk oozing out of its couplings and all the scratches and markings you'd expect from tough action in District 9 and by handling by Nigerian gun runners.
They are made mainly from glass fibre, with some details made from other materials, like plastic tubing etc where necessary. It comes with a wall mounting bracket for display. Both limited edition prop replicas are the first in a range of District 9 items from Weta.
PLEASE NOTE: Unless your genetic makeup is part prawn, you cannot power up or fire this gun.
