All of it implied, of course – this is a prop replica. For some of this technology, you may have to wait for 140 years.
The TST Chemrail prop replica is an EXACT replica of the gun Max (Matt Damon) wields in Elysium, the new movie from Director Neill Blomkamp.
This completely authentic replica was created from molds of the original prop created by Weta Workshop for the film.
The prop was designed by Weta Workshop concept artist Aaron Beck.
The gun is made from fibreglass, which gives it great heft, with some minor details made from other materials. The gun has no moveable parts and it comes with a wall mounting bracket for display.
It doesn’t get any more authentic than this.
