District 9 fans have been waiting a while for something like this to be made, and wait no more: District 9 models are here (not the hot wife)! It’s been a while, but after going through home-made alien hands, miniature Exo-Suits, and an ARC gun, we’ve finally got ourselves a detailed statue of a prawn head.
Yes, you can consider him an expert.
Being a crazy District 9 myself, I can honestly say he does the movie’s alien design justice except for one tiny detail: the eyes. After watching the movie 15+ times I can honestly say that it’s a noticeable mistake to have the eyes that small. Maybe the poor prawn hasn’t eaten catfood for a week and has gotten drowsy. It’s great, but accurate as it may be, it’s still not official. If you want official work, the only way you’re going to get it is from WETA, the designers of the District 9 aliens.
Which you will be able to, and sometime soon. That’s right, WETA is releasing limited edition collectibles of your favorite District 9 characters.
