NOTE: When I created this blog on Sunday afternoon, there were 30 left for sale. When I tested the link this morning they are now sold out. However, there are currently two different guns for sale at Weta. The second one (Gas Projector) I am going to profile tomorrow. But the link is http://www.wetanz.com/gas-projector-full-scale-replica/ if you want to try and get one today (Monday). Make sure you set the currency to $USD.

Edition Size:  200

15.7″ x 39.4″ x 3.9″ (H x W x D)
40 cm x 100 cm x 10 cm

10.8lbs (4.9 Kg)Wikus van der Merwe finds out the hard way that a measure of Alien DNA makes powering up and firing one of these babies a real doddle.   

Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.

An EXACT replica 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.

It’s made mainly from glass fibre, with some details made from other materials. It comes with a wall mounting bracket for display.

PLEASE NOTE: Unless your genetic makeup is part prawn, you cannot power up or fire this gun.

This limited edition prop replica is one of the first in a range of District 9 items from Weta.
