    Well . . .you're on the bottom of the list, so it's gonna be a bit of time. BUT, if you've got a con or important troop date coming up, I have no problem (and no one else will either) bumoping your gun up for a fast shipment. Just let me know.

    Three more go out today, so check your list/email for the update. More shipping this week and next.

    Hey I just wired up the Hotshot ROTJ Fett blaster. I really wanted to install a Red LED in it so after some time thinking it over, I got a first draft done. It did require some minor drilling into the blaster but I think it turned out Ok. I am planning to paint and superglue down the wires to make them less noticeable. Let me know what you think. This was just a test wireing. Thanks to Tubachris who came over to help me with the wireing of the LED as I have never wired anyhting before and this was my first time. Also thanks to Hotshot for doing these blasters!!

    P.S. the blaster used was an original cast and was a defected one so just use these pics to show a possible way to wire up an LED. His current blasters are of a much better quality.

    Cheers!

    The Thursday ship date is in stone. Had to wait to get the car(girl and I are splitting the Jeep while mine is in the shop)
    The next batch be cast up this weekend, and after that, we're done and caught up!

    Anyone that needs a blaster can order at anytime, day or night

    A new mold has being made, so that ALL past problems are solved. Casting will be a bit more refined, thus better detail. The armature may also be improved on future rifles, with ZERO wobble being the biggest improvement. These imporvements have carried over to the ESB.


    Thanks again for hanging in there with me, TDH. THis could have been much worse than it was, but EVERY SINGLE PERSON was gracious and supportive. Feedback was honest and constructive.

    What a great community we've got here.

    I was so pleased, and releived, and was able to really keep pumping on these. When the math is all done, it appears that almost 40 of these have been cast up at some point or another, and almost 15 didn't make the cut. I won't get into how much material was lost . . .oh well, I learned though!!

    Look for more updates soon, and you next seven, start hunting for your tracking tommorow.
    THANKS!!!

    Two have made it into Germany. ONe's about to go to the UK. Honestly, they should get in fine. They're very plainly marked 'Foam Rubber replica/toy/model kit'.

    So far, so good!

    Hi guys,
    I got a breif moment at work to update everyone on porgress.

    We were hit very badly during the Ike leftovers here in Ohio, and many of us here in town still do not have power, myself included. Our post office was also out, so it may have affected current shipments.

    I also work at an appliance store that happens to sell generators. Needless to say, we've been a bit busy. Today has showed the first signs of slowdown, and we've been able to catch our breaths, but with 60+ orders to fill, we're gonna be busy.

    I've got a gas generator going in the studio, but work is slow. I'll move as fast as possible. I'm at the point where I'm emotionally drained on this project. I'm hoping for some additional energy tonight, especially if my power comes back on.

    thanks . . .

    We have faith in you bro. Emotional motivation is one of the hardest to recoup. You have our support and patience...That said, BACK TO WORK YOU SLACKER!!!! YOU"RE PAID TO SLOP RUBBER FOR OUR ENTERTAINMENT AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE CREDIT FOR YOU WORK! NOT SIT AROUND AND "HORSE TRADE" GENERATORS!!!!! I digress...Have a good one and keep smiling!!!
