Some of you have already seen it already. I could not find anything on the forum.

Rubies has come out with a ANH Princess Leia blaster toy that is really close to the real prop, both in size and details.
There is a discussion on The RPF about it with comparison pictures against real and cast Margolin pistols.

Unfortunately, it is not always that easy to find, and it is sold on eBay for ridiculous prices sometimes.

Anyway.. keep your eyes out for it! Like previous Amidala and Rebel Fleet Trooper blasters, it may be that it will be available for only a limited time.

Ooh! I had a friend 3D print one for me, totally interesting from a maker perspective (as a librarian who promotes maker spaces) but since I'm usually the lone rebel with the 501sters I do get 'blaster envy'
Thx!

Amazon. I ordered another one (received last week). I wanted to be able to keep one intact (ANH) and mod one for my ROTJ Leia.

Just to confirm, this blaster will be approved as long as it is painted black etc correct?

The blaster would have to be neatly painted in black, but it is accurate otherwise.

To step up from 'plain black' paint to a more realistic finish, look around for Alclad II, Magnesium ALC-111; hobby stores, ebay, amazon, etc.

You can use it over normal, enamel spray can primer such as Rustoleum with no problems. Alclad does have a specific gunmetal paint, but imo it is too 'magenta'. The magnesium gives a very convincing weapon effect. Their Steel and other colors are also close matches to actual gun metals. At ~$9/oz, it is expensive and does require an airbrush. Being a lacquer, it can't be brushed on like an enamel or acrylic would be.

I'll post some pix at some point in the Leia section as I work on the one that arrives later today. Smile

If anyone is interested: here is a cheap one from eBay. I've just bought it and I will paint it black!
