Being one of my favorite films of all time, anything related to District 9 is going to catch my eye and this LEGO ARC gun, modeled after the one so elegantly handled in the film, is no exception. The amount of detail and precision this ARC replica carries just made LEGOs even cooler -- something none of us thought was possible.
Created by a fellow known as Legohaulic on Flickr, I really couldn’t even tell it was made of LEGO bricks at first glance, and judging by the comments on his Flickr post it’s safe to say a lot of folks got the same surprise when they stumbled upon on it. The detail is incredible and honestly, aside from the gaps caused by how LEGOs fit together, this ARC gun looks exactly like the one we remember from the movie.
This Prawn weapon replica isn’t the only thing Legohaulic has been up to. He’s got tons of other creations on his Flickr page including that classic “I am Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan” scene many of you will remember from a little movie called Back to the Future. He has even created the Portal 2 duo out of plastic bricks, and done a remarkable job!
In all reality the ARC gun is great but, it really just makes us want a District 10. There was lots of sequel talk when District 9 came out but Neill Blomkamp still has us waiting. Maybe he will see this and get motivated -- yea yea, high hopes, but you never know!
What do you think? Is this the best ARC gun replica you’ve seen? Will we ever get to see a District 10? Hit the comments and share your thoughts!
