    I'm not minding the delay, my whole costume had to go on hold earlier this year due to some personal issues. It's back on as soon as the holidays are over though
    That blaster is looking amazing!!
    I'm getting so tempted to get 2 now

    Here is a video of it in action with the light and sounds:

    This is the prototype blaster still of course being it's just the white resin and no greeblies

    There is a new snag unfortunately though The board he used for this is no longer available and he only had a couple of them left. He's going to try another one so he wants to be sure it will work o.k. before committing to taking orders. I think it'll be fine but I guess we had better be sure first. I'll let you know as soon as he can do another test with the new board.

    that does look pretty cool...do you know if the barrel end is gonna be missing the little piece that sticks out the tip due to the flash?

    That think is freakin' sweet!

    Ever notice how Zam's blaster sounds like the TIE fighter blaster?

    Re: interest in an aluminum blaster

    Thanks..... actually those kudos should go to Jim of Hyperdyne He's doing his best to fit all those electronics in such a small space. I think he said it's the smallest space for the amount of electronics he has done. He did the noisy cricket too which is smaller but not as impressive... due to the size.. I suppose.. it's still cool though.

    All the greeblies will be on the gun including the tip. I pressed a piece of acrylic rod into the hole in the front of the gun and the tip is machined in metal and threaded so I'll drill and tap a hole in that acrylic for the tip so the direct center of the LED won't show... might end up being a good thing so it won't blind you

    Oh... yeah.. I didn't realize the sound of Zam's gun was similiar to the tie until Jim mentioned it to me a couple years ago actually when he originally sparked the idea of making them with electronics.... kinda cool actually! ... a vintage sound in the new weapon

    That's awesome.

    I think that I am more excited about this costume than any other one I have done.

    Re: interest in an aluminum blaster

    Hey Gang,
    I just wanted to drop in and let you all know that I'm still doing everything in my power to push this project along. I talked with Hyperdyne the other day to see if he can get the soundboards and get this project rolling. He mentioned that the new soundboards might be more expensive and could drive the prices up a little. He hasn't let me know exactly what that might be yet. I'll be sure to post as soon as I hear something.

    Maybe I'll lay out all the blaster barrels and take some photos or something just so you know that I have them, they're safe, and practically nagging at me every day cause they're right inside my office door

    I just want you all to know that this project stresses the heck out of me. I hate that it's taking so long and I want nothing more than to get them to you all.

    I can't thank everyone enough for your patience.
    talk to you soon,

    No worries, it'll get done when it gets done. It's not like it's a super easy project or anything

    Re: interest in an aluminum blaster

    Here they are all laid out and nagging at me




    I do have 3 extras. I have had 3 people express interest in them. Donny you are one so yes if you are still interested I can put you on the list. I'll check with the other two people and see if they are still interested. If they aren't I'll post here if there will be any more open spots.

    Re: interest in an aluminum blaster

    Thanks for the photo. They look great. Soon it will hold a spot on my blaster wall.

    I wish I had it next weekend for the local prop party.

    I forget all the time to check this forum. I signed on over at the RPF.

    I'm one of those who still has the neoprene in the shipping box tucked under my bed. Life got me and I haven't had much time to work on it
    It *will* get done some time though!

    man...im not telling jamie about this! she is getting a big surprise when they come in...can you send that out asap to me and ship the electronics seperate? I can attach that barrel to her old resin handle for the time being...she has a photo shoot with mirax and bb in a few weeks and that would be cool to have in the photo.
