Han Solo

*insert predictable WHO SHOT FIRST joke here*

Pretty sick!  Looks like whoever did this 3d printed (or cast) then melted Han Solo to the grip.

I’d love to link to whoever did this, but naturally since this is the internet people just steal stuff and don’t source it.  The only possible explanation I have, is that people some how thinks it gives them more “clout” if they don’t put the source. DERPddit is especially bad for that… plus when you’re in moms basement you LIVE off pizza rolls and clout.  Ask me how I know.

*insert Star Trek joke to really trigger some people*

Thoughts?

Jerry with the converted c96 Mauser:

StarWarsReally neat slo-mo footage in this.  The Mauser is one of a kind.

If you’re a Star Wars nerd and are looking for more blaster related content, make sure to check out when Adam Savage from Mythbusters built one.

PHLster delivers with another Star Wars nerd kydex gem:

Han-Solo-Blaster-Kydex-Glock-HolsterSuch great work.  Unfortunately for those of you who want one, it’s a one of one.  However, it’s currently being auctioned off on ebay, with 25% of the final sale price being donated to the MARSOC Foundation.  Just remember it only fits the G19/G23 compact model Glocks.

Those of you might remember PHLster from the Star Wars Yoda Kydex Holster I posted a while back.

Now that I see this… the possibilities for troll kydex holsters are endless. I’m thinking next up a Glock blunderbuss holster!

Since I’m not a Star Wars nerd I thought this was going to be boring, but it’s actually quite interesting:

Incredible attention to detail.  As they mention in the video, there is a whole thread on a fan forum called Replica Prop Forum (RPF) which is dedicated to researching the detail of the Han Solo blaster and sourcing all the components.

StarWarsThere is a huge article over at Tested detailing the story of how fans recreated the original blaster down to the last detail.

I would have preferred them to build this on a real Mauser C96, but this is still quite cool.  Quite the workshop they have there! MYTH: BUSTED! uh wait.. there wasn’t a myth.

I’m no Star Wars nerd, but this is pure class:

To state the obvious: “Han soldered first!”

Read the story of it’s creation over at MAKE.

Neat idea, I can identify a few of them. I’m not much of a sci-fi geek though.
