PROPS: Agent J's Noisy Cricket From Men In Black
This is Agent J’s (played by Will Smith) light-up Noisy Cricket from Barry Sonnenfeld’s film Men in Black. "Not trusting his partner with a heavy firearm, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) issued Agent K the Noisy Cricket, a palm-sized weapon that launched a very large orb of energy. The Noisy Cricket was Agent J’s signature introductory weapon, and made an appearance in the sequel due to its popularity. Made of aluminum, this light-up version features 10 cylindrical vents on the receiver, which houses the casing for the battery-powered lights. Under the hammer is a small on/off switch which activates the green light. The Noisy Cricket also features a humorously small grip and barrel."
"Accompanying this lot is a letter of authenticity from the creator of the prop, Ricardo Angel Gamez. The prop firearm shows minor wear due to production use and age, with the hammer sympathetically reattached. The lot remains in very fine condition."
"Dimensions: 12 cm x 8 cm x 4 cm (4 ¾” x 3” x 1 ½”)"
