Wow, those look sweet! Great job on them, and a great thing you're doing for the Fett community!
I didn't manage to get on either list, but I was wondering if you had any "reject" castings of either the grip or stock, like something not good enough for the kit, but something you'd sell separately?
Another teaser pic:
I sanded the parts just enough to get them to fit together. I just super glued them together to test fit them. Unfortunately I broke the bracket tip in the process, Oops. I don't have the barrel yet, as I am going to be redoing that mold. The current weight of so far minus the barrel is about 1.5 lbs.
I am casting parts each day. I just ordered more RTV, so I hope to make a few more molds to be able to cast several parts a day to help seed things up a bit. I am working on all the smaller parts first and will get to the larger parts next.
Now for the question on everyone's mind...payment! I know I keep saying soon, but I cannot rationalize taking payment before I have something to ship. That said, instead of having the payment just sit in my paypal until this kits are done anyways, I'll start taking payment as soon as I have completed kits ready to go. That way it should be at your door within a week or so of payment. I'd just feel more comfortable that way.
This is looking FANTASTIC. I can't wait. Thank you seven!!!
Ditto to Darth Nickel's comment. Awesome!
A thing of beauty!! Well done!
I see where you're coming from on the payment issue too.
It's sooo pretty looking forward to this one
I t DOES look great man, I'm actually excited about this one!!! (sad but true...)
wow... $45. what a fantastic deal. this is as much a donation to the community as it is a prop run. that can't be much more than the cost of resin!
Once these blasters start getting into peoples hands, someone needs to start another thread with where to get any of the remaining greebles or whatever is needed to finish these off.
My son is so much going to love this blaster kit, heck, it might turn me on to getting one for myself in a future run.
I know that Sidewinder is someone to go to for your greeblie needs.
That is soooo cool!! If we wanted, I bet it would be possible to even make the hinge work on the casts! I can't wait!
MOW made some greeblies not to long ago. They looked pretty darn good.
I make some ESB Greeblies based on WOF's templates. But... I'm nowhere near ready to take a large number of orders yet. I need to redo the square stock greeblie based on the photo that showed up a while back. Now I just have to find them again

If anyone can put up a list of what greebles/parts are needed to finish this off, I'd appreciate it. I'm a Jango guy not a Boba, lol.
I'd possibly help contribute to the 'Budget Fett" theme started by Seven here by doing some cost effective castings for some of the remaining parts. Any clone guys here know I'm good for it. I'd prefer authentic parts to cast off since we are getting a blaster casting off the real deal here.
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait
I'm just itchin' to get my hands on one of these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
parts depends on ESB or ROTJ. I will be doing a ROTJ
Woo hoo! More RTV just showed up!
going to get some more molds ready now so I can cast a couple kits a day!
I already have the first 30 grips and barrel releases done, and several of the other parts ready, now I can get the barrels going.
Oh, and these wont ship in time for Halloween, sorry.
so when do we pay?! looks awesome!
VERY cool project... The castings look great...
A silly question i know,but whats needed to turn this into a ROTJ blaster? Is there a lot of work required?
Im going to start picking the other bits up!
dang, i forgot about this.
how long until a third run do you think?
I would be in for a 3rd run myself.Let me know.Looks great!!
Put me in a run too.
