Hero Movie Prop Morita MK I rifle from Paul Verhoeven’s sci-fi satire Starship Troopers. Recruited into the Earth Federation’s Mobile Infantry, high schooler Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) goes through the trials of service within the Federation military as war with the alien Arachnids takes him from Earth to the far corners of the galaxy. Ace Levy’s (Jake Busey) wielded his standard-issue Morita MK I in the war against these Arachnids.
This futuristic hero rifle is constructed from a custom-made fiberglass shell housing. Hero Morita rifles were used on set for their realism, especially in close-ups by principal actors. The two fiberglass clam-shells are painted green and secured together with metal screws.. This Morita MK I exhibits some visible production wear from handling, with some chipped paint throughout, the rifle remains in good overall condition and measures 42″ x 13″ x 3″ (106.75 cm x 33 cm x 7.75 cm).
This item comes with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity.
