A couple of caveats though. First: it’s expensive. Like $10,000+ expensive. There’s also no mention of any certificate of authenticity. You’ll just have to trust the source, The Prop Store of London. So if you’ve got plenty of cash to spare and a love for “Star Wars” — or if you just want to see a really cool, potentially real prop — click yourself past the jump.
This fine piece of non-functional equipment is a laser cannon ripped off the side of an apparently full-sized snowspeeder. If you need a refresher, snowspeeders are the aircraft used to bring down the Empire’s hulking AT-AT walkers during the Battle of Hoth (the snow planet). You know… this thing:
The cannon measures a whopping 99″ (eight and a quarter feet) in length. This puppy obviously never took to the air or fired its payload — that would be silly — but it was a component on one of the life-sized ships in the background of the rebel hangar on Hoth. I can’t afford it, though I can’t help but gawk at it.
