    Interest: I Found a Technisub Pulce 40!!! Master Molders take a look

    OK Title says it guys. I've tracked down the speargun that was used to make Fett's side arm. I'm still waiting on photos, but it seems as if it's in fine shape. We all know that this thing is going to cost a pretty penny. I've seen a few gun parts and kits here on the forum, but everything I come across isn't made anymore. Is there anyone out there that is currently selling a Pulce 40 resin kit? I am interested in doing this for TDH. I know that I would like to have a resin kit for it, so I figure, if I found the real thing, I could just learn how to cast it myself. I know a little bit about molding and casting, but not enough for this project. If I were to get the gun, and someone could guide me through how to cast it, I would give them a free kit or 2 and then be able to make kits for people here that need them. So one question is, is the kit available? And if not, is anyone interested? Thanks for looking

    I believe Mojo-Fett is getting ready to do a run of these in resin. You may want to contact him to see where he's at on that

    Best,

    I'll have to contact him then. If he'll be offering these full time then I wont worry about it. I'd just get a kit from him.

    F it, double post I just got a lot of pics of the gun. It looks NICE. I noticed maybe one or two little marks in the plastic. It even has the spear, the holster, and the rope to the spear. I didn't think I would find one in such great shape so quickly! Mojo PMed me, I'm not sure if I understood right or not, but I think he said he was the only person that made them. I have to figure out a good offer for this guy. I am worried because he is in another country, and our conversion rate on cash right now is not good. First of all, I have no idea what this thing should be worth. I don't want to insult him with an offer, nor do I want to rip myself off I still need to decide if I want a real pulce or a resin cast one. I'm VERY tempted at making my own resin kits, I have been wanting to get into casting since I was like 11 and this would be a great chance for me to have a project on. I'm always busy with hobbies or making things, this would be a good fit for me. But it dosen't seem like that many people are that interested and I wouldn't want to make a bunch of resin kits that no one needed Thanks for the input guys. Oh, while we are on the subject, I do employ a machinist currently. So.. how many pple are making the aluminum barrels for the gun?

    I typed a novel, and quick reply decided to delete it and just take me to advanced mode.

    So, to be short.... get the gun. It sounds like you want it. A real prop is always better than a casting, because you match the set suit.

    Secondly, if you're worried about stealing Mojos thunder, maybe just make enough kits to cover your investment and let him reign on. Nothing can stop you from offering it, but to avoid stepping on any toes it might just be easier. If there comes a time when he doesn't offer them or you need some support, there shouldn't be an issue with you stepping in. It seems like you're concerned with the double offering, but you need to understand there are several makers of plenty of things, even direct castings of screen used props.

    Hope that helps your decision, good luck with whatever you decide

    Hhhhhmmm, not sure where he is from bro. Gav told me about a guy in france that tried to sell one here on the boards. This dosen't seem like the same guy because there has been no talk about props, fett, or star wars. It's all been about spear gun collecting. I'm currently trying to figure out what I am going to offer the guy. Hopefully things work out well, I want a real Pulce!
