Exiled by fate to an alien and hostile planet where he is placed in a ghetto and forced to survive on black market pet food, Christopher Johnson is on a relentless quest to escape.

With the help of his son and a few close confidants, he has managed to scrape together enough alien fuel to attempt a get-away. Beneath his ramshackle shelter hides a secret waiting to be unearthed. It's now or never.

From Neill Blomkamp's District 9, Weta brings you a sculpture of the two hero "prawns" as they are condescendingly referred to by the humans of Johannesburg.

They stand amid the rubble that is both their immediate source of nourishment and also offers a faint glimmer of hope to a people marooned.

Sculpted in 1/6 scale by Weta Workshop sculptor David Meng, who designed and sculpted the prawns for the film, movie collectibles don't get much more authentic than this.

We'd like to thank our friends at Image Engine for their awesome work bringing the prawns to digital life in the District 9 movie. 

Produced in a strictly limited edition of 600 world wide, the prawns are sure to become a very collectible item and we recommend pre-ordering to avoid disappointment.

As soon as I saw this, I had to pre-order it! I'm so glad that I did because 2 months after I pre-ordered, they were sold out. The item arrived two days ahead of schedule and no problems existed with either the transfer of money or the item's delivery. This product looks amazing on my bookshelf and catches the attention of everyone who enters my room. Thank you WETA! You have once again made a spectacular product! Hide.

Just opened the box today. It was more than I expected. The base is perfect. It was a little lighter in color, but it really shows off the detail. Great job WETA! Hide.
