Looper’s Time Machine Is Up For Sale
Rian Johnson’s Looper is one of the best, most ambitious science fiction films in recent memory. It’s also got the jankiest, most cobbled-together-looking time machine since Marty McFly and Doc Brown rigged the DeLorean to be pushed up to 88 miles per hour by that train in Back to the Future 3.
You never really get a great look at the apparatus in the film, but the appearance makes sense considering time travel has been outlawed, and you can imagine that a black market time machine wouldn’t be the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen. However, if you have an excess of cash burning a hole in your pocket, not to mention a relatively large place to put it, you can now own the time machine from Looper. Wouldn’t you like to sit in this and pretend to be Bruce Willis for a while?
Hollywood Parts has the contraption from Looper up for sale for the bargain-basement price of just 28,000 American dollars. Considering that it costs $4,200 just to rent the time machine for a week, 28 large seems like a reasonable price. That also includes shipping. Where else are you going to find a deal like that? And you only have to pay sales tax if you live in California.
Looper is the kind of movie we’ll likely be talking about and dissecting for years, so it makes sense that fans might want to own a key piece of the memorabilia from the film. If the time machine happens to be a bit out of your price range, the website also has dozens of other items up for sale.
Did you like the snappy suits that either version of Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Willis) wore? You can own one. What about those cool grenades, Joe’s wife’s (Qing Xu) dresses, or old Joe’s shoes? All of that and more can be yours for a couple grand.
