Did you ever dream of owning your own M56 Smartgun from James Cameron’s Aliens? Well, today is your lucky day because now you have the chance to add this baby to your collection thanks to the good folks at the Hollywood Collectibles Group.

Being a huge fan of the movie (it's my favorite of the entire Alien movie franchise) and a sometime collector of movie replicas, I have to say this definitely caught my eye. The price, too. But seeing how detailed the piece is, I think it could very well be worth $1.200. Oh, and if you can’t afford to pay this in one go, you can opt for a payment plan, thank you very much.

The official prop replica is modeled after the Smartgun carried by Vasquez in the movie (Drake had one, too, but he didn't last very long). There's also an exclusive edition (only 150 available, for the same price) that includes the Smartgun blueprints and specs sheet. Here's an official description:

The M56 Smartgun is a 10mm General Purpose automatic Squad Support Weapon used by the US Colonial Marines in the blockbuster movie Aliens. With an effective range of 1500 yards, it is equipped with a motion-sensitive infrared tracking system, capable of autonomous and accurate targeting of moving objects.

We are proud to present for the first time ever an Officially Licensed Life Size Replica of this iconic Sci Fi weapon!  Measuring 48" in length and weighing in at 15lbs, this amazingly detailed replica is modeled after the Smartgun carried by all round badass Pvt. Vasquez ... Adios Xenomorph!

Sure to dominate any Aliens collection, it comes complete with a separate themed tabletop display stand. A HCG Exclusive Edition is also available, it comes with a high quality 24" x 16" print of the Smartgun blueprints and specs sheet, click here for more details.

This museum quality Life Size Replica is constructed from fiberglass, metal, resin and mixed media, then painstakingly hand painted and authentically weathered.
