gazmosis[501st] Posted July 22, 2011 Report Share Posted July 22, 2011 (edited) The tech on our hobby and the knowledge that we all have here on FISD has allowed us to build some of the greatest sets of armor anyone can hope for. A lot of troopers are shooting for as much accuracy as we can. This holds true for our weapons as well. EVERY E-11 build that chooses to use the Hengstler and power cylindars connects them with the coiled wires that are attached to the top, front of the hengstler. --------- The top pic from this breakdown shows the counter from a front view(although it is on its side). There is a triangle of circles at the top. Metal connection tabs at the bottom two of these circles are what are commonly used to connect the wires to in ALL the builds I have seen. Now my question: I have read entries several times that state that the wires on the film used blasters WERE NOT connected at the for-mentioned tabs but underneath. Basically saying,"your blaster is WRONG". I have also read that the wires were not black but red and green???????? There is a pic floating around that is a front view of a supposed screen used blaster focusing on the wires. It is a black and white, grainy image that, to me, clearly shows the wires attached at the bottom two of these above mentioned points although the pic was submitted to show them connected underneath. I have viewed dozens of screen grabs of the blasters and the only one that really shows the wires at all is the shot of the TKs behind Leia as Vader is grilling her. This shot MIGHT show this or not. Is this one grab the shot that sets this in stone??? This shot also shows the gaffer's tape and scratched armor that were synonymous with the rushed shooting schedule of ANH. Maybe the wires fell off and someone just stuck them on with electric tape to get through the shot? Other rushed shooting traits were: no tube stripes, frown with no screen, flapping calves, missing sniper plate, etc... It is also painfully obvious that MANY blasters in the film had neither counters OR power cylindars. So why can only a blaster WITH them make it to centurion? O.K. I am wandering. I am just saying that there are wonderful inconsistancies of film making that ANH was not immune to. What will be the final decision on these wires and why??????
