The Other District 9 Custom Figure on eBay

DISTRICT 9 CUSTOM ROBOT FIGURE

THERE ARE ALOT OF SECRETS IN DISTRICT-9 AND THIS HAPPENS TO BE ONE OF THEM!

district9prawn2Alright d-9 fans you are bidding on a custom made prawn mech figure. This guy was built from scratch and various parts from some figures. The figure itself is very articulated and has ball jointed shoulders , waist , legs and head. This was one of the most fun customs to work on for me due to how much work and craftsmanship I had to put in him. I gave him the real life like metal texture into the painting process to ahieve the replica movie look. He has fully poseable claws just like the movie scene from when he catches the missle in mid air. You can turn his head back and forth and twist his waist all the way around. His head sections were made from some sheet metal. I even gave him his little robotic whisker tentacles. His spike attenas are very sharp so beware and remember this is a custom made figure meant for posing and display only. You can get some really crazy poses out of him too because of all his articulation. There is only one other of these ever created so dont miss out on this precious find!

San Diego Comic Con Movie Preview Photo – District 9

District 9

Director Neill Blomkamp teams with producer Peter Jackson for this tale of extraterrestrial refugees stuck in contemporary South Africa. It’s been 30 years since the aliens made first contact, but there was never any attack from the skies, nor any profound technological revelation capable of advancing our society. Instead, the aliens were treated as refugees. They were the last of their kind, and in order to accommodate them, the government of South Africa set up a makeshift home in District 9 as politicians and world leaders debated how to handle the situation. As the humans begin to grow wary of the unwelcome intruders, a private company called Multi-National United (MNU) is assigned the task of controlling the aliens. But MNU is less interested in the aliens’ welfare than attempting to understand how their weaponry works. Should they manage to make that breakthrough, they will receive tremendous profits to fund their research. Unfortunately, the highly advanced weaponry requires alien DNA in order to be activated. When MNU field operative Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley) contracts an unusual virus that causes his DNA to mutate, the tensions between the aliens and the humans intensifies. Wikus is the key to unlocking the alien’s technology, and he quickly becomes the most wanted man on the planet. Ostracized and isolated, Wikus retreats to District 9 in a desperate bid to shake his dogged pursuers. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
