Thanks for making these available !

No problem! Been in the works for some time!! I'm so glad to be getting caught up on the ROTJ blasters!! Painting these will be much more fun!!

I'm in for one of these also, depending on pics like 99centTaco
Thanks guys, I'm very happy to get this moving, and to have alot of trust instilled from buyers, both old and new! I'll be getting some pics up tonight of a finished PVC flash tube, as well as the whole rifle. While I was a bit distracted this weekend, I gad gotten the stock refinshed, as well as the main body of the gun. I'll be casting all the small stuff tonight, and will begin the big stuff Tuesday-friday. If my next rubber order arrives timely, I'll be able to have a pulled ESB right around the time the ROTJ's wrap up. Yay! Not sure if you guys have seen this pics from the suggestion thread?
Paypal payment sent.
shoot at that price I'm interested pending the final pics.
Hotshot, Please withdraw me from the list and give my spot to another deserving Fett. I ended up buying a Hyperfirm about six weeks ago. Your blasters are looking great though!:thumbsup Thanks, Jason
The gun is looking great! I can't wait to see the final product.
PM sent...will paypal once you respond!
PM'd ya back! Here's some more updated pics of the rifle, with the pVC Flash tube put on. i still have two details to put on the scope mounts, and a little bit more cleanup on the stock, and she's ready for silicone!
Barrel on rifle
I think it looks amazing!!! Paypal sent for 72.50 (my 50% down payment)!!! thanks so much for doing this run. I can't wait to get mine!!!
Where would the sling attach? It's looking good so far.
looks nice so far...will there be more of a wood finish on the stock?
ABsolutly. That's getting etched today, and the paint job will reflect a nice wood grain finish.
As for a sling, I can't seem to track down attachment pieces, or the right kind of brown leather. Any ideas?
Any way to get this painted-up but in kit form?
Wouldnt want the import men taking it or thinking it was a real weapon if the inspect it...
Yeah, I PM'd Taco a few days ago about an ESB belt and the sling for this...Taco, Taco, Taco!!!
I can't wait for this all to come together!!!
Then I guess I'll let him handle it!!
I'll cast some resin blocks into the rear of the stock and the butt of the grip then, that way, you can just screw it in.
I'm gonna play it kinda safe, and close up the Preorder list. I've started to drag and burn out a bit, so I'm gonna tap the brakes a bit.
As I finish up the last bits of detail on the rifle, and start to get it cast, I'll do a few more updates, and get a rubber one made up. I've also had some help in making the internal armature even more rigid, and have elimintaed the heavy wobble we saw on the ROTJ. But we won't loose the 'squishy' factor, which will keep the rifle dropable during use.
A huge thanks for those who've paid their pre-order! I was able to get the supllies ordered quickly and efficently! Those who haven't paid, no rush, but be sure to sty on it!!
I'll pay as soon as my payment check comes in. Hopefully monday or thuesday
LIke I said, no hurry!
Full payment sent via PP. Looks incredible.
wow this looks great
THanks! Now if I can just get it finished!!! I've had nasty migranes over the last three days. My body is literally sore!! Ugh . . .
Don't die on us man, we want our blasters! :lol
JK, take your time...I'm in no rush!
man if you need to rest yourself then do it. nothing is worth hurting yourself over. I'm in no hurry for my blaster. if you need to take a little break then by all means do it. and by little I mean like a couple hours :lol just kidding. take youre time hotshot.
Just checking in to see if there has been any added progress? Hope you're getting the rest you need, thanks.:thumbsup
Yea, I took Sunday and Mondy off(did light house work, small paper prop projects, napped alot), and am pretty worried about my head. Five solid days of migranes/headaches. Went to the doc on Monday, he had no clue. Some blood works being done, and they recomend a CAT scan, but those will both tell me things I already know . . .
My blood's full of Wendy's and my head is very thick.
My masuess buddy thinks I've got a pinching nerve in my neck, and once she worked on my shoudlers and neck, the problem went away . . .weird.
Either way, I'm fine, and will stay on it. Frickin' drama . . . .:rolleyes
Anyway, the stock's all done, and has a nice wood grain texture, and I'm just touching up the stock greeblies on from and back of those mounts, and then we're done! As we get closer to the weekend, I'll update befoe we all take the weekend off.
Have you ever tried a chiropractor? I went through the same thing, terrible headaches that would bring me to my knees, my Doc thought I had a brain tumor, did an MRI, no deal, gave me some pain medicine, I thought "screw that" and got an adjustment on my neck, I haven't had problems since. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
I have a cure for all you aches and pains......2 words..... HOT TUB:thumbsup
Ours is broken . . . with fall fast approaching.:cry
Nothin' huge to report, just finishing up all the fine detialing now, small filling here and there. I'll post pics once the final coat of paint's on here for molding.
Mostly getting the ROTJ caught up completely.
Oh, I do have all the MMP tubes cut, painted and done. They look pretty smashing!!
Oh, and I should also note, I'll be using a really cool reddish powder on the middle stock greeblie to make it look like red adonized metal.
Also, one spot IS OPEN.
If you're on the interest list, get your cash in so I can order the rest of the supplies (boxes, packing material, etc. all the project supplies are here)
If i don't hear from those above by the end pof the weekend(I'll PM you), I'll open your spot up for someone else!
Sorry, but for clarification do you mean get the pre-order cash in or the balance after the pre-order (full payment)?
Preorder balance . .definatly NOT the total balance.
Some have paid in full, but that was their choice (big thanks to them!)
Full payment sent. I hhave had some money problems lately, hence the slow payment.
Got your payment, thanks!!
I've PM'd the those who've not gotten there money in, or whom I've not heard from.
Be sure to let me know!!
One spot is currently open for anyone who may want to jump in!
A note on the rifle, a new ROTJ mold hase been made for future runs/orders, and those improvments have also made it over to the ESB rifle. I'm excited to update, and you guys won't be diappointed!
PICTURES! WE WANT PICTURES!
Ps: The date I paid on, was the 9th of a smileyface month according to your post xD
Edit: I WANT IT NOW! Im sitting here drooling on my keyboard and screen because of these rifles.
I think Hotshot will post once he gets back on his feet from the storms up in his area.
Thanks for the update Esh
Power's back on!! Back in buisness baby!! Whoo-hoo!
Giant update coming!!
awesome! Hotshot you better not kill yourself while doing these projects! you need a big vacation after all the EE-3's
I'm so exhausted, I've even cancelled my Halloween plans . . .however, I've been buying up old models so I can relax and take another crack at some old 'freinds.' Lookin' froward to some heavy time off before I dive into teh E-11's
So... how's it coming along then? :D
She's in silicone boys. I'll be uploading photos slowly over the next few days. I anticipate this going much smoother than the ROTJ blaster, of which I'm ready to chuck out the window:angry
Just let me know when they will be done and I'll send you the other half of the payment...
No worries!! I'm really looking forward to getting the pics up!
Any juicy stuff to share? :D
With my home internet antenna stil down, I'm unable to load pics, BUT, i can tell you I'll have the first pulled rifle by Friday of next week. I am super psyched, not just cause this is my last project for a while, but because everything is actually going according to plan on this run!!! Lost of pics soon . . .I hope **knocks on wood**
Any updates? Its been nearly 10 days since the last one
Agreed...anxious to see how these babies are turning out.
Let me get the ROTJ's done, as I'm almost finished, and I'll update from there. So far, I'm realllllyy excited.
I hope to have a first pull by next Friday. I CAN tell you, the Molexes came out amazing!
Thanks for the update! Here's to hoping for a Halloween blaster debut. :D
Hoping for Halloween here, too.
We dont have Halloween in Norway, so I cant say I am hoping for it by then, but then again, I've been drooling over the pictures for a good while now, and I just generaly want the thing.
Ditto...ready and waiting!!! Can't wait!!!
Updates? I'm dying from longing here xD
What's the latest and the greatest?
Trouble shooting the casting process. On 'take three' for the mOlex and v8 rod :angry
Everything else looks okay. Gotta the the ROTJ done first.
Soon . . . soon ***rubs hands together**
Right on bro...thanks for the update!
Come on then :D Nearly my entire Boba is complete by now, just waiting for the blaster and saving money for a jet pack.
I'm finished with ROTJ backorders, and have only two to do. THose will be gone next week. I'll be taking a few days rest to recoup from the run, and then full on attacking the ESB for a quick finish. All supplies, from casting to shipping are standing by, so to say that I'm fairly excited is an understatment.
For those who will have the second payment to make . . .start thinking about it and getting it ready . . .yep, I'm that close!! Whoo!!
Let me know when you're gonna do another run!!! :skull
I have one more spot left if you want in. Info's in the first post.
I don't see my name on the list. You did tell me you got the payment. Sorry to be paranoid. Just don't want to be accidentally left out when these awesome things get sent out. So, just checking. Can't wait to see some progress pics!
Let me know if you received payment. Thanks!
That's weird . .you should both be up there . . . hmmph:facepalm
There we go . .fixed!
Thanks Hot! Just make sure you got the payment. I sent it a few days ago.
Thanks! Wait, did I pay full or half? Geez, I don't even remember. I'll check.
Oh, and do you think we'll see some pics by Thanksgiving? I would definitely give thanks!
Big update . . .
All of the 15 MMP tubes are cut and drilled out, needing only the letting scribed in, as well as painted.
I've begun pulling scopes, and am up to 6. All reticle decals are printed and cut too. It's a nice lookin' orange one that fits the ESB look great.
Molexes and V-8 rods are also getting pulled, and I'm up to 6 on those as well.
I plan on having all these parts finished and painted by Monday night. If I feel well enough, (urethane's gettin' to me) I'll start knocking out rifles.
Either way, these will be out the door for all 15 of you by Thanksgiving.
A few notes on the product finish-
-remember, these will be painted, so the wood grain will be done for you!
-I'll be casting the stock greeblies with white, so that black paint will chip away over time, and the middel greeblie will actually be cast in red with metal powder in it, so the the black will also chip over time, revealing the red "metal" underneath.
-The MMP tube will be removable, as it goes tight over the barrel stub, and you'll be able to add or subtract your our at your leisure.
- they're will be two more surprises in a week . . .stay tuned!
Hope that gets you guys nice and updated!!
Thanks for the update, looking forward to pics. Thanks.
love seeing updates for this. cant wait to see pics.
I can't wait...what's the last day to pay the 2nd half of the money?
2nd half of payment sent via PP !
Can´t wait to hold it in hands...
Pay whenever! **shrugs**
What a sweet update to whet our appetite. Can't wait for the "secrets." I was curious what you figured out to do about attaching the straps. I also have one of taco's straps and will also need a way to attach. Let me know what you figured out on that. Thanks.
Oh, and by Thanksgiving!?!!!! I'm speechless.
Yea, definatly moving along at a nice clip.
got the last of the Molex and V-8 peices done, they look pretty steller.
Gonna work on the big mold a bit more, make the outer shell a bit more 'user freindly'
Will also get the lettering etched into the barrels.
Oh . . .and these will have attachment hardware for Taco's slings (surprise!)
Hey if you end up squeezing a few more into this run, please put me down for one!
Okay!!! All of the little stuff is done! I'll have pics on TUESDAY of everything all lined up like Santa's work shop. Everything has turned out realllllly well!!!
It's alot of fun working with different paint colors/styles for this rifle.
I'm going to attempt a full pull/paint this weekend of a rifle, to troubleshoot the mold/process once more, and then go from there. If it works like I think it might, we're going to be one happy group of people.
I've done test pulls on the greeblies, with the white/red coloring, and it's frickin' sweet!
Start getting those final payments together and in, that way, I can be prepared for shipping in the next 10-15 days.
Yep, you read that right!
10-15 days, and all 15 of you will have your ESB's. (countdown starting Tuesday)
Send some karma to those interpid ROTJ buyers who got me whipped into shape!
Talk soon, gang! Get those final payments in, and I'll see you Tuesday for Pics!!!
HotShot, another great update! Can't wait for those pics!!!
