Sex Machine's (Tom Savini) codpiece revolver from Robert Rodriguez's horror thriller From Dusk Till Dawn. When the employees of the Titty Twister bar transformed into vampires and attacked the patrons, biker Sex Machine defended himself with a secret revolver mounted to his codpiece.
This custom-machined revolver prop is mounted to a translucent acrylic stand and features a metal barrel with a pair of metal revolver cylinders attached to the base of the barrel with phallic symbolism. A plastic-coated metal cable extends from the back of the gun, leading to an A-shaped lever. Squeezing and releasing this lever will cause the barrel to move from "holstered" to "ready-to-fire" positions. Several other examples of this memorable prop were made at the time of production as gifts for other members of the filmmaking team, but special effects coordinator Tom Bellissimo confirms this is a film-used piece and has minor construction differences to the other pieces made as gifts. It exhibits signs of use and wear including some scuffing on the acrylic section, but remains in excellent overall condition. Dimensions: 6" x 6" x 1.5" (15.25 cm x 15.25 cm x 4 cm)
Ownership may be restricted in some countries; see replica firearm notice in Buyer's Guide.
