    For all those accurate ones with money to spare . . . .I have confirmation from the Master Replicas designer that they will be making the EE-3 blaster in 2006.

    These look great by the way for customs on a budget!

    If the E-11 runs around $400, you can imagine what the EE-3 will run.

    not much to look at, but iam happy with her, shes not done sanding, got some touch up bondo to do, and to thicken the "chamber" and put the over piece on it, then paint her up, but heres how she looks so far. Instead of playdoh I jused used pvc pipe, a cut circle of sintra (so i wouldnt have to fill the whole saber up) and about a golfball size of Bondo, then crammed the tip of my gun in and held it till it hardened. Ill take close ups and explain what I used for what when I have time.

    Your stock is way better than mine. I plan on making something like that eventually though. Whenever I get some Sintra.

    Eh I just eyeballed it,drew it, and cut it outta sintra, base glued it with some hot glue (gun 2 bucks, glue sticks 1 buck, Wal Mart, High Temp) then bondo the sides and edges, then sanded the kajesus outta it to make it smooth, the stock, and "gun" are all sintra made like this. 8 layers so far I think. weighs.. about 3 pounds, feels good and sturdy though.

    HERE WE ARE! i got screwed outta time and ideas so.. the stock is remaining black and not any wood colors... some parts look really bad.. but overall.. iam happy with my rifle.. calculated costs, not counting time or sintra (dont wanna do the fractions) 22 dollars.. i think. roughly around there. Sintra, Bondo, Hot glue, Play Doh, 1/2 inch PVC pipe, oil funnel, scope and patience.. all of wich but 1 item can be bought at wal mart... lol. open 24 hours! and boy.. am I there A LOT. Pic time. Pardon the flash washing.

    Now that has to be the most clever thing I've seen in a long time. Using a light saber backwards as the barrel. BRAVO!!! ( Had to look 2x at the picture to make sure)

    Neat feature, I used the saber belt clip to carry my blaster.

    hi, I see the pics of your EE-3.........here I send you the mines..............
    I use the same material......cheap toys, wood, and instead of the lightsaber I use a pvc pipe...................just buy a pistol, and a western rifle for the butt, and you have the something to start.................for only 5...........and the paint, the most expensive material in this project..............

    I like yours, too. I'll probably do that eventually, but this right here that I made was just a quicky, if you know what I mean. My only complaint with yours is that I think it is a tad too long. Not a problem though, because it's still better than mine. And thanks to the helmet I'm scratchbuilding, I'm STILL on the market for a better rifle stock... but I haven't been looking very hard, or else I'm sure I would've gotten something by now, heheh.

    looks terrific, a nice low cost method that still gets you a great looking blaster. i will probably follow exactly what you did for mine.

    I have so many lightsabers left over from the last movie midnight release.
    I bought a cheapo lightsaber and so did everyone in my group, and everyone didn't want their's after, and everyone gave me their lightsaber

    so i have like 8 lightsabers, and a few are the DV style, so i could attempt this


    looks very nice, good job

    hmm.. If you want to get a better stock, just get a scrap piece of wood, lay teh template over it and start rasping, eventually get your "mouse" out and start sanding it intensivly...

    then fill it, and no-one can see its made of wood.

    heres what I did....
    still have to paint it though..

    Not a bad idea. I'll definitely do something like that some day.
