As far as I can tell, this is the first time I have seen this BFG made:



If there are any groups doing mass builds of Hoth Troopers (or other squads of Rebels), I think this is a must have for the well armed Squad.

I'm also working on getting some screencaps of this weapon from the old Making of Empire Strikes Back Special Effects TV special... it has some other good views that might come in handy.

Hmmmmm, I wonder if we could do a "make-over" on a Nerf Vulcan to make it look like this. Mr. Green

Honestly, looking at the shapes, the only way I see doing it is with PVC and wood. The vulcan makes for a great base for a minigun, but it wouldn't look right for this.

maybe the base could be used, but I agree, the "gun" itself could not.

lol...
I guess I need a beard...

Interesting...
the gaiters are shown in gray in the photo of the action figure in the first post...
I will have to check my local Target and see if they have them in stock..

Again I got frustrated when looking at screen captures of Hoth...
sometimes thethe gaiters looked gray..
sometimes they looked tan...

sigh...

Evil or Very Mad

The German Base/Outpost is going to begin work on a whole squad of Hoth Troopers...
that BFG would be a nice addition...
