Hey guys, thought I'd share my progress on here with my battle buddy 48" figure conversion. What makes mine a wee bit different? Going to add a few 3d printed mods and add ons! I've went ahead and removed the blaster and added a grip to reuse it as I know many folks just trash it. I used the grip file from the5thhorseman as a base and modified it to be hollow and slotted to work with the toy blaster. I probably cut off more of the handle then needed but it works and is still a firm hold. Gives it a better hold now and improves the look. I just used my grayish white ABS material, acetone smoothed it and super glued it on when it was still slightly soft.
