    It's in Coober Pedy where Pitch Black was filmed (and Mad Max!) sitting in front of a shop there, it was purchased by the shop owners when filming wrapped.
    That photo is a few years old though, but it's still in great shape. Lots of people visit it as it's recommended by all kinds of hotels and shops etc, but everyone has their photo taken with it, whether they know what it's from or not :lol

    Yeah, it's been there awhile, but it seems to be holding up in the desert.

    That's a nice-lookin' little ship... kind of reminds me of the dropships from Starship Troopers.

    Very cool. I love that whole opening sequence.

    Was that bus possibly the Atomic Cafe in Bartertown?

    Just watched Pitch Black again last night. Good looking ship, and I'd LOVE to have that beauty sitting in my yard!

    Not to get off toping (or into a movie discussion) but I loved Pitch Black - so much better than Riddick. I hope the new film is as good as the hype is leading it to be.
