    Just wondering if anyone has ever built this 5th element gun.
    you guys remember the scene...

    Mugger: Give me the cash.
    Korben Dallas: Been here long?
    Mugger: Yeah, long enough. Come on, give me the cash.
    Korben Dallas: Is that a Z-140? Alleviated titanium. Neurocharged assault model.
    Mugger: Yeah, yeah.
    Korben Dallas: Good thing for me it's not loaded.
    Mugger: [giggles] What do you mean it's not loaded?
    Korben Dallas: You have to... push that yellow button to load it.
    Mugger: [pauses, then laughs hesitantly]...


    I've done the standard searches and come up with nothing... anyone else out there with more knowlege than I about this particular gun?

    That's ok, Ah dont need IT..

    The two mags sticking out either side are AK mags I think.

    I thought the Studiocreation guys had done one - or at least had pictures of someone who had done one on their site.

    That's a very nice hat.

    I'd be interested to see what it looked like up close.

    I've always thought it'd be one of the easier ones to pull off... I'd bet its a bunch of found parts. Has almost a toy like essence to it.

    Pics? Caps?

    I bet them spikes are the same as on the Mangalore stickybomb.

    I've got M79 blooper mnius stock in my mind due to the barrel size.

    perhaps this
    [​IMG]

    plus the pistol grip of this?
    [​IMG]

    i was thinking the m79 barrel with the M47 Riot Shotgun with Pistol Grip (airsoft below)
    [​IMG]

    so i take it no one has ever replicated this particular prop?

    Awww, don't listen to the nasty man, poor little Z140.

    Actually this has piqued my interest 'cos that is one of my favouritist scenes from 5E

    Defintitely something with a large barrel bore, bigger than a shotty.

    Handgrip, you mean?
    If so - Where are you seeing that?
    The MAGS are AK mags, yeah... I'm pretty sure of that. But I can't make out much more detail than that.
    There's something bolt-action along the top, though - You can make out the bolt handle in the top few pics.

    Huh?

    This one didn't need to fire. The base weapon could have been a toaster.

    Email Jeff at www.studiocreations.com He or his brother made one for their group for Dragon con a few years back. He is the only one I know who has ever tried.

    brightening the above pics up reveals a bit more detail but nothing I can identify found-wise. Theres a big corrugated rubber gaiter running underneath the gun, like from a motorcycle front fork. You can see it squash as Corbin puts the gun in his rack.

    Ok, how about this as a base:

    [​IMG]

    The De Lisle Carbine. Large barrel, bolt action (you can see a BA lever in one of the screencaps)

    :lol and agreed... Why fret over real fire arms? May even have been a toy... PVC pipe and toy gun parts...?

    boy. there really needs to be better reference material than what's offered via screen caps. The forward grip definitely needs a close up, which we don't have. But I have to agree that the base seems to be an AK based on the shape of the very back end (last picture in post #6).

    Thanks for the positive contributions guys :rolleyes. Sheesh just cos it ain't an Obi ANH part doesn't mean some of us can't be obsessive about the details etc.

    There is a place in the UK that does do De Lisle airsofts. Expensive conv tho.

    The minigun is a Toytec barrel spinner. :)

    Another second for the AK stule pistol grip. The one on the gas gun up there is from an FAL and it flares out at the bottom to much.

    I've always loved that seen from the movie so a Z-140 is a must have for me. :D

    That De Lisle has a L2A3 folding stock. Cool. It sure is a weird lookin' gun.

    Thought I'd bring this thread from the depths instead of making another. Anyone had any more thought about the Z140? It would be such a cool weapon to replicate.

    I remember seeing a photo from a convention where some guy had done the costume with the hat and everything. Was really good. And funny!
