FIRST ORDER STUN BATON

Thought I’d share some info regarding a cool weapon that was created for TROS.
 
This 'stun baton' was codenamed the SUGAR CUBE BATON.

This deadly looking dumbbell was constructed of cast plastic and resin, with wooden and metal components.
 
When closed it measured 10in L x 2.5in W. When deployed it was 14.25in L.
 
Who knows, perhaps we'll see it in the deleted scenes of extended version if it ever gets released.
 
In the meantime I know there are plans to create a 3D print of the baton.

Turns out a 3D print won’t be needed.

With a little extra research it turns out the stun baton is a found part.

Production has a history of sourcing cheap flashlights out of China - the knockoff M300A is a classic example.
And to think, a spray painted torch with red painted glass was put up for auction late last year for a tidy sum.

I do recall seeing this article when it was released, but didn't think much of it at the time.

Good to see found parts continue to be used in the Star Wars universe.

There are a few variants for sale across the Internet. There is also a black version which claims to be a Rebel Baton. 

 

At the end of the day it's a $25 rechargeable inspection lamp easily obtained from AliExpress.

So funny to see such a cheap painted $25 light go for $3,0000. However.. $25 doesn’t get you the COA. That’s what the $2,975 is for! Lol

I’m not sure they’re selling yet! A recent auction saw the baton passed in.

I had the chance to buy one for £300 but let it go.

These didn’t actually show up on screen did they?

The white ones, not yet! Who knows if they’ll show up in new footage.

The scene the white version was used:

 

"In this scene, the orange suit (mechanic?) is handing the lighted prop up to the other person in the cockpit (pilot?) in the background of this shot..there might be other scenes this background prop is used, but this is not a HERO Prop."
