The Nigerian crime lord of the District 9 ghetto, Obesandjo, has amassed a significant cache of prawn hardware through terror and pushing tinned cat food.
The Gas Projector is a powerful weapon. If only it could be fired by humans…
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 minor 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.

Results from Dan:
OK, well the poll didn’t seem to work out so well, so we can all ignore those results. Should not have gone that direction, and never will again. We’re calling it. We got a couple more people locally to put in their votes, and using the tally we had before the poll, the tie is broken. Therefore, the following are the winners in the 3 categories of Zombies:
Celebrity – By a landslide, Zombie Jones by Hemble. (Sideshow Freaks Forum) We had hoped to see many more entries in this category, but regardless, it would likely have been difficult to top this one.
Nazi – Mollins won by 1 vote. (Sideshow Freaks Forum) This categories’ rules stated that the closer to the zombies featured in Call of Duty World at Wars Zombies levels, the more likely it could win. While none of the entries closely matched the game, Mollins’ captures the essence of the game in the pose and paint.
Original – The Groom by Delfire (One Sixth Warriors Forum). A tough category with so many great entries, many of you put in a lot of effort into your creations, and it was enjoyable to see them.
Congratulations guys! You’ll get a PM with details about claiming your prize.
Thanks to all who participated and supported this contest. We look forward to doing this again (with some revisions) next Halloween.
1st Annual Toy Anxiety Halloween Custom 1:6 Figure Contest
I have posted our first entry in our custom 1:6 figure zombie contest (more pictures of her on our contest forum). Many of you have said you are already at work on your zombies.
Here are the contest details for those of you wanting to enter.
We want to see your best Zombies!
There are three categories:
1. Original Concept: Zombies in this category are of a completely original design. You want to make a Dentist zombie, a Cowboy zombie, anything you can think of as long as it’s not based on any specific license.
2. Nazi Zombies: For all you Military enthusiasts and/or fans of Call of Duty World at War, we want to see your best Nazi Zombie. The closer to the look of the game, the more likely you’ll have a chance at winning.
3. Celebrity Zombie: Enter in this category if your Zombie is designed after a particular Celebrity or a character from a movie or TV show. What if Indiana Jones stumbled upon some zombie natives and got bitten? That’s the type of stuff we want to see here. No recreations of existing Zombie characters!
To enter, post your images on our Sideshow Forum site. Be sure to mention which category your image is being entered in. Anyone wishing to participate in this contest may have 1 entry per category. Entries will be accepted through midnight, Saturday October 24th, 2009. The winners will be announced on Friday, October 30th, 2009. Winners will be chosen based on the concept behind the entry, and how much effort went into making it. Just know that popping a Sideshow’s The Dead zombie head on any particular body isn’t going to win you any prizes. We want to see some thought and creativity here. Use your BRAAAAINNNSS!
The prize, for the winner in each category, will receive a $50 Toy Anxiety eGift Certificate!
If you have any questions about the contest please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and good luck boils and ghouls!

Up for auction is a custom
DISTRICT 9 ACTION FIGURE
[PRAWN MECHA ROBOT ARMOR/ WITH EXCHANGABLE VIKUS HEAD]
He is approximately 9 inches tall with over 30 points of articuation.
So after watching District 9 we both were inspired to bring some of these awesome characters to life- starting with the Mecha Prawn (suit). This one of a kind piece, and is a true action figure, featuring tons of posablity and is recommended for normal play or display (children take heed, the spikes on his back are real metal and extremly sharp).
We tried our best to keep things accurate, only taking a few creative liberties as we saw fit; the bullet stips for example may not make so much sense since the aliens weapons did not use normal muntions- fret not they are removable I just thought they looked cool. Another area is Vikus’ head- in the movie it sat more in the suits upper chest area- however due to some technical difficulties we had to make his head sit higher- again though- if you don’t dig it don’t put it on him.
Cool figure features:
* Exchangable Mecha Prawn head and Vikus head. Easy to exchange but each fit on securely and retain posability. (works on a sturdy ball and socket system).
* Real metal components- gears in his chest to simulate the moving chest pannels seen in the movie- spikes- back portion
* Mecha Prawn’s head can be jutted out further by sliding a button under his neck.
*strobe back attachment lights up and runs on small watch batteries (included)
* Ultra realistic paint app looks like real metal.
*pop out blades on both his arms.
