The piece was part of a larger building miniature used for the effect. The piece is made of plaster and includes two attached cables. As the explosion of Los Angeles was filmed without the use of pyrotechnics, a mixture of wires and air cannons were used to produce the nuclear effect. The wires present on this piece were used as part of the "explosion" of Los Angeles.
The item shows some wear from production but remains in overall very good condition.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
