Argus Cube



Item Details

Community Rating: Item Rating: 3 votes, 4.67 average.


Super 8 tells the story of a group of young teenagers who are filming their own Super 8 movie in a small town in 1979 when a train derails, releasing a dangerous presence into their town. While recovering from the crash that just happened in front of their eyes, Joe (Joel Courtney) recovers a weird cube artifact from the ground, where several other hundreds are spreaded everywhere.

While the movie progresses, we learn the cubes are actually small pieces of an alien's spacecraft: the cubes are assembled or disassembled via elctromagnetism, which the monster can control. When the craft crashed on Earth in 1958 as part of Operation Belttrap , the U.S. Air Force managed to collect his ship as well, and in an incident, they managed to disassemble the ship. They continued to study the alien and the cubes for 21 years until 1979, when they transported the alien and cubes via train. The train crashed and the cubes were spilled. Joe Lamb took one, and the Air Force came and collected the rest of the cubes into red trucks. The cube Joe took would vibrate on occasion and change its shape. It finally shot through the wall of Joe's house toward the town's water tower. The Air Force tried to lure the alien with the cubes, but it over-powered them and used his ability to attract all the cubes to the top of the water tower and reconstituted his ship, which he used to finally escape planet Earth.

This is one of those cubes, the key prop of this film, and a nice souvenir of... an alien ship! Made of some sort of resin, it feels just nice on hand, it has some weight and the kind of shape, brightness and the actual material makes it quite special actually! There's some dirt present and some corners are broken (probably due to usage on set). You can actually see some cubes with broken corners in the movie too. It sits on a light up base along with the movie poster and a couple screen caps.

Obtained directly from a crew member.
