Alright. I'm to lazy to post pics at the moment. But Fett enthusiasts should know the pics I'm talking about. Alright. In the Visual Dictionary shoot, all of the pics of his ROTJ rifle have just half of a scope. I used to think this was merely a cropping of the picture, until I began seeing this half-scoped rifle all over the place. In the helmet section, in TD's new post, somone posted a pic of ESB helmeted fett with blaster, and it's got just half. What is up with this weird rifle?
My theory was that it was a "stunt" blaster that was used in the Luke slicing scene. Perhaps that blaster was detachable at the pvc joint meeting the webley and the scope at that joint was in two pieces. Once this scene was filmed, for publicity purposes a gun may have been needed and the stunt was quickly reassembled without the half of the scope? Just a thought, but I'm pretty curious.
