A Ming Guard's cannon blaster from Mike Hodges' sci-fi adventure Flash Gordon. Large cannon blasters formed part of the armoury aboard the War Rocket Ajax. Prince Barin (Timothy Dalton) notably wielded a cannon blaster when he deactivated the lightning field in Sector Alpha 9, allowing Flash (Sam J. Jones) to crash the Ajax ship into the throne room.
The weapon is made of fibreglass and is painted black with gold foil detailing, with two red decals adhered along the top edge. It features a long barrel, two protruding side grips, a static trigger and a curved stock. The cannon blaster exhibits signs of wear to the gold foil and paint finish from production use. Dimensions: 108 cm x 20 cm x 27 cm (42½" x 7¾" x 10½")
Estimate: £2,000 - 3,000 M
