District 9 was one of the most successful movies of 2009, nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp and produced by Peter Jackson, the film explored race relations through the language of science fiction
The first gun presented to Wikus van der Merwe (by the MNU scientists) at the underground shooting range at MNU headquarters, the Assault rifle makes short work of the porcine kadaver strung up for target practice.
All the awesomeness of the District 9 alien weaponry captured in a 1/4 scale miniature.
An exquisitely detailed replica of the gun 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.
Down to the oozing gunk at every coupling, this gun is detailed and battle worn as a piece of alien hardware would be after being traded by Nigerian gun runners since 1982.
Cast in solid white metal, the Assault rifle weighs in at 2.6lbs (1.2kg) and comes on a display stand.
This limited edition piece perfectly captures the groundbreaking weapons design of District 9 and is the first in our range of District 9 Miniature Guns.
