AVP: Alien vs. Predator

Lot # 40 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Animatronic Shoulder Cannon

Stock #106725

An animatronic Predator shoulder cannon from Paul W.S. Anderson's sci-fi action film AVP: Alien vs. Predator. The Yautja, more commonly known as Predators, wore their shoulder weapons as they performed their rites of passage, battling xenomorphs in an ancient, submerged pyramid. Alexa Woods (Sanaa Lathan) was saved by the Predator Scar (Ian Whyte) after his cannon was returned to him, and he used it to kill numerous xenomorphs during her desperate escape.

The shoulder cannon (also known as a Plasmacaster) is one of the Predator's signature weapons. It fires plasma bolts (typically pale blue in colour) which explode on contact with a target. While the plasma in the film was achieved through the use of visual effects, the motion of the cannon was practical, achieved using animatronics.

This item is largely made of fibreglass and resin, painted faux silver and grey to give the impression of tarnished metal. The cannon features Yautja lettering throughout, faux vents and buttons on the front shoulder panel, a crosshatch design on the front chest support, faux cables on the back-left side and faux wires and circuit designs on the lever arm of the cannon. It shows some signs of age and production use. Dimensions: 64 cm x 35 cm x 47 cm (25 1/4" x 13 3/4" x 18 1/2")
