Someone once sent me a super secret photo of a blaster that supposedly was carried by a few of the Endor Commandos....
where I had not previously seen that blaster....
it ended up looking a LOT like Lando's blaster from ROTJ.

I had a resin replica of Lando's blaster in my things to do pile and started working on it.

It was an Arsenal Props blaster...and it did have a lot of small holes from bubbles in the casting process...to be honest...I could not get them all out but for the $$, it was a decent blaster.

Anyway...
this is the Lando blaster and was wondering if any of you saw screen shots of Commando's with something similar.











I also started making a holster for it that is similar to what little I can see of Lando's

Love the work you did on this!

a few years back, I put together a variation of this blaster using a P99 and some other items. I always liked to think of it as a more "updated" model to this one.

this particular version is one that was seen being used by only Lando that I know of...
I was looking into options for someone at my base who was interested in this "General Lando" costume...so I was seeing what was "out there".

The prop blaster I found appears to be a pretty good copy of Lando's blaster. The photo of the one that I saw that MIGHT have been carried by the other Endor Commandos was slightly different when it came to greeblies.

I could see pilots using this as a shoulder holstered weapon as well. Nice job!

Oh yea, this would be a perfect "last insurance" for a pilot...
