I'm interested in an ESB blaster rifle
Please put me down for a ESB blaster rifle.
Woah !! I am interested in the Empire Version.
Interested for sure, in a ROTJ version. depending on price of course
sp please add me to the list
You mentioned a 'plug-in' barrel. Would this allow us to break-down the rifle into two sections for storage and travel?
That's affirmative. Last time we talked about it, the idea was to also allow you the option of switching blaster types, the best of both worlds if you will.
Ideas may have changed since I last talked to Mardon and Si but I'm pretty sure I'm right. If not, HH will correct me.
Yeah, Tim's pretty much got it there. The idea is to have a plug in barrell, like the rocket on the MLC J/pack for those that have seen them. This is for ease of transport/storage, but does theoretically mean you could get both seperate barrells and have a variable blaster. Obviously gun body and stock greeblies would be different.
Put me down also pending price for and ROTJ. Also HH you have mail.
Any update on this?
I hope to have a significant update very soon. we're waiting on a couple of final greeblies and doo dads to mould, then Mardon will scratchbuild any we are short on and there should then follow an FG pull.
Apologies for the delay here. All beyond our control unfortunately.
Stick with it. It'll be worth it.
Looking good, put me down for a ESB blaster please. Price pending.
I havent followed this thread to closely but was am interested and was wondering if the stock of the gun will be wood or fiberglass?
The stock will be FG.
My wooden stock is possibly for sale for the right price, though, once it's finished being moulded.
Still chasing up the missing bits. Nearly there.....
Heads up! Some of the ESB Greeblies are heading Mardon's way.
Just out of curiousity, not that I'm being picky, or impatient... or annoying (right?) but what would be a safe ballpark estimate of these being ready to ship? I just wanted to know if I should throw something together for Halloween and expect this afterwards.
No pressure at all......Well, not intentionally anyway.
Difficult question to answer. If I got the bits I'm waiting for tomorrow, I'd say we could get things going and have plenty of time before halloween to get them made and shipped.
As it's beyond my control when I receive the bits, I simply can't guarantee they'll be ready. As soon as I have any news, or receive the bits, I'll be sure to post. I am chasing the supplier of said parts daily, and it's getting a bit tedious. I paid for them nearly a month ago and still no sign. No response from e-mail for a few days now either! I'm not concerned as yet, just frustrated.
So sorry I can't be more definite. Not at all annoying of you to ask, and no pressure taken.
I'd be interested, depending on cost of course.
Sincere apologies for the delay. I am waiting on replacement grips, as the one on my stock is a little damaged and I want it to be perfect.
I had a supplier lined up, paid for them a month and a half ago. After a barrage of excuses regarding delays, I am now being ignored, so I am trying to source them elsewhere. I have a couple of leads and am waiting a respoonse from another supplier. Once I have this, it'll be all systems go. All we're waiting for is the grips. Very frustrating!
I'll keep you posted!
It's been a couple weeks and I thought I'd check in to see where these are at as far as production. Hope you are all doing well.
P.S. What side of the pond are these coming from?
After a resounding silence from all the various grip suppliers I have tried, I have decided to ask Mardon to try and fix up the grip I already have and see if it is possible to get a good mould from that.
I'm expecting a progress report very soon. Hopefully tomorrow.
Watch this space!
::Edit - They will be shipping from the philippines. Final details to be confirmed once we are ready to go::
I would be interested in one ESB style depending on price.
Ok, had a chat with Mardon. He's spoken to his workers and we've decided that rather than continue indefinitely waiting for a response from grip companies, we'll work with what we've got. Mardon's worker can fix the grip up and once he has, we'll get cracking on moulding one of these puppies.
Mardon is pretty busy at the moment, what with real world job plus armour runs, etc., so we'll have to join the queue for his and his workers valuable time, but it is moving forwards.
::Edited for spelling::
Sorry about the grip letdown. I tried hitting a few Online Stores for the accurate ones but they didn't see fit to reply...oh well.
Being that the real grips were made in 1916, your chances of finding a surplus of them may be pretty slim. If you do, you only need the right sides anyway. They cast pretty easily from what I have seen, in both resin and bronze.
Thats understandable but we were looking for replacement REPLICA grips. Close enough to the original but without the wear & tear.
