From James Cameron’s Aliens, Hollywood Collectibles Group have revealed their officially licensed M41A Stunt Pulse Rifles. Details are as follows.
We are very proud to present our Officially Licensed, Aliens Stunt Pulse Rifle! One of the most Iconic movie weapons ever to blast its way onto the big screen, the Pulse Rifle is the weapon of choice for the US Colonial Marines in James Cameron's Oscar winning "Aliens".
Several “Hero” Pulse Rifles were created, mainly for the live firing sequences, but most of the time what you see on screen are lightweight “stunt” versions - the hero versions weighing in at a hefty 20lbs or so!
To create the definitive Pulse Rifle we obtained one of the few surviving Hero Pulse Rifles, meticulously measured and photographed every detail and then painstakingly recreated this exactly. The result is the most accurate replica ever produced, a "must have" for any Aliens fan!
Our Stunt version Pulse Rifle remains faithful to the ones seen in the movie, with accurate shrouds the same dimensions as the “hero” versions, but has no moving parts and weighs only 5 ½ lbs – ideal for display or Cosplay!
Whilst the subject of much debate, it is generally accepted that the original Pulse Rifle's shrouds were painted a "Brown Bess" color. However, for those who prefer the shrouds an Olive Drab (OD green) color - the color the Pulse Rifle appeared to be on the big screen, we are also offering a HCG Exclusive OD Green version.
There are four versions available: The Brown Bess, Olive Drab (OD) Green, Brown Bess Weathered and OD Green Weathered, and each comes complete with a themed tabletop display stand.
The Brown Bess versions are limited to 750 pieces of each version. You can order them at Entertainment Earth here.
The OD Green Versions are Exclusive to Hollywood Collectibles and are only available directly from their website. These are a Limited Edition of just 250 individually numbered pieces. Priced at $499.95 each, or as little as $42 a month if you use an optional payment plan.
