I won this in as part of an eBay auction from a TDH member:
It was made out of a toy handgun and some PVC pipe and whatnot. Only the scope was real. It was a good start but it was a little front-heavy, so I decided to put a little more work into it (I spent about $12 in all) to get it ready for Halloween. It now looks like this:
I'm not saying it's going to win any awards or anything. And I'm sure as heck not saying that it's screen accurate -- the greeblies and blaster blocks are made out of Lego after all. But I just posted it to show that you can achieve half decent results (if I say so myself) without having to spend a ton of money.
I'm still completely miffed at myself for selling the incredible blaster I made from a Spidey kit, but I'm hoping to hear back from someone about an MLC blaster. In the meantime this makes a half decent placeholder.
Anyway, just thought I'd share.
