Check Out This Incredibly Detailed Han Solo DL-44 Complete Blaster Replica

Now this is a good blaster to have at your side!  Perfect for display, conventions, collecting, or just because it’s cool!

The long awaited Han Solo DL-44 Blaster is the result of a year and a half’s worth of fanatical research. Todd Coyle procured all of the original elements that are currently available including Veron model kit cylinders and pushrods, Hensoldt-Wetzlar scopes, and MG-81 flash suppressor and adapter. 

Todd even spec’d them all in minute detail. He searched out the best manufacturers for each of the parts required to duplicate this prop, down to the screws. 

This is the closest replica to the real prop.

Features include:

-Custom made Hensoldt-Wetzlar scope made of all original materials, and working optical lenses! More than 27 individual parts!
-Grille made of 3 Veron model kit cylinders
-Denix C-96 Mauser replica customized especially for this prop
-Steel bull barrel complete with threads for the rifle barrel extension (as seen when the original gun appeared in “Naked Runner”)
-Custom made steel MG81 flash hider and mounting collar
-Steel scope mounting bracket and hardware
-Barrel greeblies made of PVC and ABS plastic
-Functioning hammer, trigger and bolt!

Two finishes are offered: Factory New is as the DL-44 would have appeared in the laser gun store display case. Battle Worn is as close to the finish as used on screen. Almost every scratch and chip that is visible in the reference photos have been duplicated.

Order HERE for $450.

Star Wars Darth Vader Stovetop Kettle

The Fowndry is featuring a stainless steel Star Wars Stovetop Kettle designed to resemble the silhouette of Darth Vader‘s iconic shiny black helmet. It also features a handle made out of his lightsaber hilt.

In space, no-one can hear you steam… which is a shame because the superbly menacing Darth Vader Kettle has a whistle that could awaken The Force. This officially licensed, high quality stainless-steel stovetop kettle will have 1.7L of water boiling with barely suppressed rage faster than you can say “the brew is strong with this one…”

You can order the kettle HERE for $70.

Hasbro Announces HASLAB. First Crowdfunding Project Is Star Wars Jabba’s Sail Barge Replica

Announced at this year’s Toy Fair, HASLAB is Hasbro’s new platform that hopes to put dream products into the hands of fans. To that end, we’re excited to announce that the first HASLAB item is the biggest Star Wars vehicle Hasbro and Kenner have ever produced – fan favorite Jabba’s Sail Barge! Measuring approximately 4 feet long, this large scale, highly detailed item features premium deco and vintage packaging. An incredible addition to any collection, Jabba’s Sail Barge comes complete with  exquisitely-detailed and fan accessible interior/exterior decks, one Jabba the Hutt 3.75-inch scale figure, two soft-cloth fabric sails, and other realistic features that mimic one of the most notorious vehicles in the Star Wars universe.

HASLAB takes inspiration from other platforms by inviting participants to support the product by backing the project up front by placing a pre-order. You’re our only hope to make Jabba’s Sail Barge a reality! For Jabba’s Sail Barge to go into production, Hasbro must meet a certain minimum threshold of 5,000 pre-orders. It’s up to the fans to support the campaign and help successfully reach that goal by 11:59pm ET on April 3rd, 2018. Those who pre-order the item will also receive “Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna): Behind The Workbench,”  a premium, 64-page booklet that goes behind the scenes of the design and development of the actual Sail Barge film set piece and Hasbro toy and includes set photos, product blueprints, interviews, and more.

Starting today, fans can place a pre-order for Jabba’s Sail Barge for $499 at HASBRO.COM/HASLAB. If the goal is met, the product will go into production. For more information on HASLAB and to follow the project’s progress throughout the 45 day pre-order window, visit HASBRO.COM/HASLAB and follow @HasbroPulse on social media. You can download assets using this link, and we appreciate you spreading the word.

Game of Thrones Creators David Benioff And D.B. Weiss To Write And Direct A New Series of Star Wars Films

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going from Winterfell to a galaxy far, far away.

‘It was announced today that Benioff and Weiss, creators of the smash-hit, Emmy Award-winning television series Game of Thrones, will write and produce a new series of Star Wars films.

These new films will be separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the recently-announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”

“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss said in a joint statement. “We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete.”

No release dates have been set for the new films, and there have (thankfully) been no sightings of White Walkers around Lucasfilm.

Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm have brought online the first full Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer!

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

Solo: A Star Wars Story features Hail, Caesar‘s Alden Ehrenreich as Han, with Atlanta‘s Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and The Force Awakens‘ Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson is playing Han’s mentor, a man by the name of Beckett, while Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, Westworld‘s Thandie Newton, Avengers‘ Paul Bettany, and Fleabag‘s Phoebe Waller-Bridge also star.

In the wake of the departure of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm hired director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code) to take their place. It is unknown how credit will be divided for the finished film, as at least 3/4s of it was already shot when Howard took over.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is coming to theaters on May 25, 2018.
