I would definitely go with the light saber on this one EJ. Although Ive always enjoyed Clint and his one liners, but besides neing a sci-fi geek, the sound of the light saber when being swung is even more iconic. When you hear that sound, you know what it is.
I read this question and the first weapon that came to mind was Luke Skywalker's light saber. So, if that's what comes to my mind -and I am NOT a fan of Star Wars by any measure- then yeah, it must be the epitome of "iconic"
My first thought was a sword, though not one of any particular identity. However, now that you mention the light Saber, I'm more inclined to agree with that one. Though I do have Star Wars on the brain. We just hosted a Star Wars Vs. Star Trek night at one of the local bars last night and am amidst the administration team organizing a Star Wars festival next month.
If you're thinking swords, it could be Connor Macleod's katana from Highlander, or the Aragorn's sword of Elendil from LOTR. Maybe William Wallace's broadsword in Braveheart or the golden blade of Peter Pan from Hook. Plenty of options.
It took me some time to think about this, but if it's not Bruce Campbell's Boomstick, it's gotta be that extremely long-barrelled revolver the Joker uses in one of the earlier Batman films. Not the most iconic, but definitely one of my personal favourites.
How about the "Terminator?" He was a weapon of destruction with that big old machine gun, on a mission. The character WAS the weapon. Very scary as it just couldn't be stopped, followed by great sequels, defining a movie era. Even the famous quote, "I'll be back," made an impression.
Yep, lightsaber is the first one that came to mind. But other cool ones are Oddjob's hat in Goldfinger, or even Anton Chigurh's air pistol in No Country for Old Men. Also, not necessarily a weapon but Ghostbusters backpacks.
Also, that big gun in Robocop they used to blow up cars and ED-209.
