ORIGINAL FLAME THROWER FROM ALIEN - TCF, 1979) This is an original prop (non-firing) flamethrower seen prominently in the groundbreaking Ridley Scott classic, Alien. Once the alien begins to wreak havoc aboard the Nostromo, the crew quickly learns that it is using the air shafts to get around the ship so the plan was to use the flamethrowers to drive the alien into an airlock and blow it out into space. Dallas (Tom Skerrit) and Parker (Yaphet Kotto) are both holding a flamethrower at the time of their demise and Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) carries a flamethrower through the latter part of the film. Measuring 31 ½ in. long and weighing a substantial 17 pounds, the weapon is constructed of steel, aluminum, industrial plastic, brass, wood and resin. It is painted a dull white, very effectively distressed to appear it was heavily used in an industrial environment. Exposed metal is evident on the fuel tank valves, solid aluminum grips and flame emitter. The flamethrower comes with a signed letter of authenticity by noted Alien collector and authority, John Gorman, who writes that he obtained this flame-thrower prop used in the 1978 production of Alien directly from 20th Century Fox in 1993 from their London-based asset storage when the studio supplied his “Alien War” attraction museum with a number of screen-used prop and costume artifacts. The carrying belt attached with spring-hooks is replica for display. A fantastic, instantly-recognizable weapon from the film that started the tremendously successful Alien franchise. The weapon exhibits re-gluing of rear grip; otherwise, in Excellent condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
