    My New found part

    Ive just recivedmy new (old) telescope,
    Now the good thing about this is , the tasco telescope is quite rare and was used on some of the PP sling guns,
    BUT, my one this one isnt a tasco and was used on, one mabey 2 of the earlier sling guns apart from the difrent colours it also has the metal ring around the center of the viewing pieces ,

    I think it is a real gem !
    And ive also got the other found for the sling gun on there way to me now,,

    supertrooper-initial-review-01-jpgdsc04623-jpgAnd Im also thinking (now I may be wrong on this ) The super trooper uzi looks like for the barrel sitting inside the flash tube is half of the telescope with the eye peice removed, the metalinc part that is sticking out of the end of the barrel
    I may be wrong but it seems to look the part

    I think the tip sticking out of the flash tube is the same as the jetpack stabilizer piece. It is just a thicker based version.

    Good point , the turntable that the stablilizer came from has another part very much the same just thicker so you are probly right,
    Owell I wasnt planing on doing one of them any way , its all about the Prepro for me

    Good find! I gave up on looking for the 1Y Tasco telescope. I did however, get a minty Kaiser.....so with Seeker's beautiful kit, I was able to complete my blaster.
    Just last night, I finally put the finishing touches on the paint. I'll try and get pics up soon! WooHoo! PP2 all day!

    I didnt get the tasco I got the King 10-25x30 Japan Zoom , which you see used in the PP eyes costume, , they are almost exactly the same but the King has as you can see metal ring between the eye peice,
    I cant decide weather To go PP eyes costume or PP2 ?

    I really like the sling gun.

    I initially did my Captain Rex costume because he had the eyes. I've always wanted to paint up a pre-pro eyes helmet to go with the Captain!

    Re: My New found part

    What Im thinking is I do both see the only thing extra ill need is another helmet a extra chest and collar piece and 2 difrent belts , and the 2 difrent flam throwers , and 2 difrent capes,
    Its actually quite do able seeing,

    and considering the action figure is actully based ont he eyes costume (if you didnt know look at the flame thrower PPeyes style + no dent= eyes)and the picture on the box is the PP2, this is also a reason I think ill go both

    That means that you need another full costume except for the blaster and some soft parts :

    That's the problem, everytime I see the PP#1 it seems to be like a toy, or a costume for sales, not a bounty hunter (even when it's based in the far west guys) becuase of all the colours it has, looks like a rainbow...

    Re: My New found part

    I like rainbows,,
    But seriously the helmet is dappa Ive always loved it, I remember seeing it many years ago and thought I imagened it only to find it here all these years later , ,
    On the eyes helmet , does any oine else think they turned it in to the PP3 ? or the ESB the gray right ear, looks like the gray under the earth colour and the left ear light gray looks like the colour under the red and the green , and then there are the score marks in the helmet that match the PP3very closely not to mention the weathering marks are very simlar on the left temple and the visor , and so on ?
    Any one else ever thought this?

    Re: My New found part

    The PP#1, or eyes helmet, was not modified. At least we know it was not modified before 1981. The last pic we have about the PP#1 helmet is from that time, just after ESB,so if we know the PP#3 and ESB were made for ESB production, there is no posibility of having it modified for PP#3 or ESB.

    Here is the pic:
