Of course I'm prepped to take it apart and work on everything that needs fixing in order to get her back in working shape. Then I decided to throw batteries in:

Broke, thats great news man!

Sure, it would have been nice to see a "how to fix it" video, but it sure is nice to get a positive surprise these days... Congrats again on the 3-Position Rifle!

This is actually the 2nd time I've bought a weapon that was "broken" but worked with batteries. I bought a smuggler blaster that ended up working 2 weeks ago.

I saw that, how awesome that they both worked once you got them in hand! Congrats again man! And thanks for posting pics and a video, I had no idea what it sounded like... I basically know nothing about those items, except of course that I wanted them when I was little, but we didn't get them, lol!

That is fantastic. While trying to fix a broken toy can be fun, fixing a "broken" toy this isn't really broken is way way way better. Congrats on getting that thing. It looks fantastic. Stickers are a tad worn at least they are still there. Any idea how your gonna display this and the solo blaster? Some kind of wall hanger or something? My tig replica palace blaster is sitting on a shelf waiting for me to figure out a better way to display it. I am thinking some kind of shadow box or plaque or something.
