Another awesome Weta Workshop product – the official District 9: Assault Rifle Miniature weapon replica from Neill Blomkamp’s DISTRICT 9 movie.
Dimensions are perfectly 1/4 scale: 4.3″ x 10.2″ x 1.4″ (H x W x D) (note: dimensions and weight are for gun on stand).
The Assault Rifle in DISTRICT 9 was the first gun presented to Wikus van der Merwe (by the MNU scientists) at the underground shooting range at MNU headquarters. It makes short work of the porcine kadaver strung up for target practice.
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 ground breaking weapons design of DISTRICT 9 and is the first in Weta’s range of Miniature Guns from the film.
