District 9 Exosuit From WETA Revealed
WETA: Jay Cochran - 2010.08.03
WETA has released images for their District 9 Exosuit which you can check out below in our GALLERY. Look for this statue to be released in Q1 of 2011 for $599.

Prize item in Nigerian crimelord and gun runner Obesandjo's stash of alien weaponry, the alien exosuit provides Wikus van der Merwe with a much needed advantage in the epic final battle against Koobus and his Reaction Force troops.

Designed for the District 9 movie by Weta Designer Greg Broadmore, this awesome piece of equipment is fully featured for serious battle in alien worlds. It sports an array of weapons and communications systems, most of which are beyond what human scientists can fathom, let alone replicate.

Look closely and you will see not only the Arc Generator, but also the Assault Rifle mounted to the exterior of this massive exoskeletal power suit.

It's a tank with arms and legs - mess with it at your peril.

Modeled with fanatical attention to detail by Weta Senior Modelmaker David Tremont and art directed by Greg Broadmore, this piece has been created by the very same artists and craftsmen who worked on the movie.

Being such an iconic feature in the film, the Exosuit will feature on the cover of The Art of District 9, scheduled for release later this year.

Produced in a strictly limited edition of only 600 world wide.
