A hero flamethrower from Ridley Scott's sci-fi prequel Prometheus. The crew of the Prometheus landed on the distant moon LV-223 to search for evidence of an alien culture. To the surprise of the Weyland-hired scientists, mercenaries on board the ship brought a number of flamethrowers to the seemingly dead planet. These weapons were used by Vickers (Charlize Theron) on the infected Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green), and by Janek (Idris Elba) on the mutated Fifield (Sean Harris).
This once-functioning flamethrower was custom-built for the film and features two gas tanks within an open metal frame. It has a black plastic trigger handle mounted at the back, with orange-coloured triggers. A carry handle juts out from the middle of the device, allowing the user to support the weapon during use. The larger of the two tanks has been decorated with a "Weyland Enterprises" logo sticker on each side of the canister.
Decommissioned after use on the production, the piece has some wear from use and age, including some scratching and scuffing to the paint, most notably on the black frame and on the end of the larger tank. There are also small areas of rust on parts of the flamethrower. Dimensions: 91 cm x 21 cm x 38 cm (35 3/4" x 8 1/4" x 15")
Estimate: £8,000 - 12,000 †Δ
