District 9 had some cool guns. Now you can buy some of them

Posted by LiveFor on February 5, 2010

Like me you probably watched District 9 and really enjoyed it. Great story, good effects, excellent acting, but of course some of the best things on screen where the great big alien guns. Who’s with me?

Now the good folks over at WETA have put together exact replicas of two of the weapons from Neill Blompkamp’s film.

GAS PROJECTOR:

Availability: Pre-order Now!
Edition Size: 200
Dimensions: 23.6″ x 39.4″ x 3.9″ (H x W x D)
60 cm x 100 cm x 10 cm
Weight: 11.9lbs (5.4 Kg)

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 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.


ARC GENERATOR:

Availability: Pre-order Now!
Edition Size: 200
Dimensions: 15.7″ x 39.4″ x 3.9″ (H x W x D)
40 cm x 100 cm x 10 cm
Weight: 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.

Both are going for about £300 or $500.
