The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I think they are national, but it is the Knoxville, TN gun shows that I saw something similar at.

Thanks! They were asking for more details. I've gone back to them with that.

The response:

"We aren't quite sure who it is that carries the cases. We have quite a few vendors and staff isn't 100% on who this could be. We will be in Knoxville at the Expo on April 28-29. The best idea may be to wait until that show & stop by and see if the vendor is there."

HAHA! Such an excellent expression (that I've not heard before)!
I like how it sounds, somewhat like a mixed metaphor.

It made me spouse express much joy once heard for it was the ever loving truth. Though I told the little one you are in America and are not allowed to join her majesty's baseball team and pitch a royal fit.

OK these folks sold cases and are gun show only. There was another guy that sold cases only and he never saw the type of case in the movie. I think it was a custom home brew, unless, the case was a typical storage case for an mg42. I did buy a 4 foot case off of that guy. I will start a separate thread on my redo on that case and I will dub the case a case of whoop @$$ and use it store props.

My acquisition will not fit through a 3 foot door, hehehe. It will fit in the shed though. I should have enough room to store all my convention stuff in there though...

And it fits in the bed of my truck. I think this could work to my advantage traveling to other conventions...

Obviously not a match, but similar in style.

I noticed this container on a delivery truck that was dropping something else off to me at work. The driver told me he believed it held a car transmission.

I tell ya, I think BugStomper had it right when he targeted product/equipment specific shipping material that was not really intended for re-use. I'm thinking we just need to ID the commonly used item in movie making that had that factory packaging. Something large like a camera, stage light, or dolly or something.
