PostSubject: TIG Official Life Size Princess Leia Blaster! - Limited Edition of 50 - Updated June 4th   Thu May 25, 2017 2:35 pm

Update 6/4/17

We now have a sample and the order for 50 blasters is official!!!!

We are keeping the prices the same:

$89.99 shipped in the US
$109.99 shipped worldwide

These are nice and heavy (about 2lbs / .91 kilo) and will be hand numbered and come with a COO

$20 deposit is all that's needed or you can pay in full if you prefer. Should be shipping by mid July!!

If you're interested, reply below!!




We have a prototype!!








We are very proud to announce, on this 40th anniversary of the release of Star Wars, that we will have our first Life Size Blaster for 2017!!

We want to thank everyone who reached out with suggestions on which character's weapon should be made. There were great suggestions like the Jawa Blaster with it's big round front or the cool styling of the Biker Scout blaster. However there was only one choice
.
We will be commissioning a limited edition of 50 Princess Leia blasters for release in late July. They will be life size, hand numbered, and come with COA.

We hope to have our prototype in hand over the next couple of weeks and then will begin the ordering process!! If you've ordered the Imperial, Palace, or Smuggler Blaster and want matching numbers we will do our best to accommodate!!

MTFBWY!!!!

Given her passing and this being an iconic figure and weapon in the line i imagine these will have no problem selling out. Cant wait to see the actual images of the prototype in someone's hand.

Here's the thread from the smuggler and palace blasters. They were just over $100 shipped last time, but the price point on these hasnt been discussed yet to my knowledge. If it goes like last time, John will open up a order thread and it is first come first served on them. There is only 50 so they don't last long, but I think last time it took a couple of days to sell out. They will be offered up on the forum first then if any leftovers they will go to Facebook. I'm not sure on a timeline as we haven't gotten the actual prototype in hand yet on this one.

Here's the thread from the smuggler and palace blasters. They were just over $100 shipped last time, but the price point on these hasnt been discussed yet to my knowledge.  If it goes like last time, John will open up a order thread and it is first come first served on them. There is only 50 so they don't last long, but I think last time it took a couple of days to sell out.  They will be offered up on the forum first then if any leftovers they will go to Facebook. I'm not sure on a timeline as we haven't gotten the actual prototype in hand yet on this one.  

Bryan is pretty much spot on. Our goal is to stay at the same pricing. Really the only difference might be in weight and if that affects shipping.

All in all, I'd say $89.99 shipped in the US / $109.99 Worldwide is most likely the top end. Fingers crossed we come in cheaper!!

I am lucky enough to have a palace blaster in my collection and I can tell you those are awesome. They are heavy and solid and all around a great item. I plan to eventually shadow box it or something with the coa and make it a wall hanger piece. I skipped out on the other two but being that Return of the Jedi is my favorite of the trilogy I couldn't pass on that one when it came around being offered to me. I know I would probably be the only one, but fingers crossed we get a wicket spear eventually. lol!

Nice, looks like the handle is about 4-4.5 inches long in case anyone is wondering how it will fit in hand. That measurement is a guess based on the tape in the pic though.
