  1. Great post, thanks to OP for the photos. I'm gearing up to do this as well and have been studying this closely. Some info for the Angelus brand leather paint & finishers... There are (4) sheens available from them which are: - Matte = Lower Sheen Semi-Gloss - Satin = New Shoe Glossy - Normal (also labeled as #600) = Glossy - High Gloss = Highest Gloss Original poster in their photo used "#600/Normal" which has a glossy finish, that's why it came out on the shinier side of things for them
  2. I hate to resurrect an old thread, but this one seems to be as good of place than another to ask: * Have people attempted to remove the molded ridge on the Rubies TK to make it into ANH style either by cutting it off or grinding it down? And if so, would cutting the ridge off make the pieces too small afterwards? Just wondering if making a Rubies into a ROTJ is the only option
  3. Thanks T-Jay , I did see that Disney Parks one when I was looking into it and yeah, lol, that's a big $$$ on it for sure. I thought it looked just like the 96 one but with different paint scheme unique to the parks. I saw they also had a Star Tours grey & black version of it around the early 2000's. I feel now, after looking into this much much more, that I mispoke calling the 'Rebels' one in my photos above a Hasbro since it's really a Rubie's. I went with a Rubie's and got one for $12 today. I have my Dremel ready and I'm gona go to town on it next month when things settle down in my schedule.
  4. Thanks for your call on the blaster & holster, wook1138 !
  5. Sup every1! I've been into Vader builds for a while, now I'm getting into Stormtroopers! LOL. I'm looking to build an affordable fan-made E-11 and want to know from you all, which toy base gun would YOU go for if given the choice of the 1996 Disney blaster OR the Hasbro Rebels. The '96 looks like a better shape, but the Rebels has the counter w ammo block and even the folding support arm. Rebels' fins can be sanded down I suppose. I don't have an era preference, so ESB/ROTJ boxless is ok with me. I just want to build on the best one of these for the better of the two's total outcome. I've seen some good mod threads on here for these as well and look forward to using their tips. Also, does a "counter w ammo box" gun have a much harder time fitting in an accurate TK holster than one without all of that?
