Among the multitude of iconic images from the horror classic Phantasm, including the leering Tall Man, his hooded mini-henchmen, and that gorgeous black Hemi 'Cuda, the one that stands out boldest in almost every fan's memories is that amazing killer silver sphere. In fact, it was a nightmare about a deadly flying silver ball that gave director Don Coscarelli the idea for the original 1979 film... and the rest is history.
If you've ever wanted a piece of that history – or at least a really damn good recreation of it – now's your chance to own a silver sphere of your very own, courtesy of artist “Phanattic.” Bear in mind, this is no cheap plastic replica made from a Christmas tree ornament: this sucker's made of stainless steel by an accomplished metalworker.
The classic sphere, priced at $125, measures four inches in diameter and weighs two pounds (it's not hollow). It's fitted with the curved blades and drill-bit as seen in the first movie; the artist also indicates that the weapon edges are all very sharp, so this one's not for the kids to play with. It comes with a small mounting cup, but he's also offering a separate display case for $60, which has a mausoleum marble-look base and bears the Phantasm title.
