View Full Version : Sawed of blaster rifles...

This is soooo very odd. But when I first got my Luke in Stormtrooper disguise his blaster had the end missing. It happened with another one of my figures too...can't quite remember which though.

Also the blasters were missing the same back end in the Death Star Escape 3-pack.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Yes, the "short-end" blaster isn't a problem with the machining, it's a design change for figures who had wrists too bent to hold a Stormy blaster correctly. It's an ugly redesign, I think the Death Star Trooper has one, I am 99% sure the AT-ST driver has one, they've got longer sights than the regulat Stormy blaster and an angled butt, so they look really nasty. I hated 'em and replaced them all.
