STAR WARS fans! This is easily the best prop replica collectible I’ve posted since we launched the site.
On Australian Ebay (but available for purchase worldwide) is a Super Rare PROTOTYPE 1:1 scale STAR WARS EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE DL 44 Han Solo Blaster Prop Replica by Master Replicas.
It is one of the first Star Wars props Master Replicas released and now a mega-rare collectible.
Apparently these Han Solo Blaster Prototypes were ONLY released to members of the Master Replicas board of directors. I’ve marked this as a “one-of-a-kind” because while only 3 of these are known to exist the current owner states it may even be the only complete one because some Prototypes did not come with display cases or paperwork. This one is complete and Guaranteed an original!
This very first Master Replicas Blaster is the holy grail of Han Solo Blaster’s as being a prototype it is basically in a class of its own.
Recreated from original Lucasfilm archival materials, including a detailed examination of the original filming prop, this replica is identical in every respect to the Blaster Han Solo uses onscreen in STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE.
Hand assembled from machined die cast metal components, it features a working bolt action trigger/hammer and a precisely detailed German WWII scope.
Included is the foam presentation box and black sleeve cover!
All the paper work is included in the sale, including envelope, care instructions and Certificate of Authenticity. Also includes the Prototype plaque, the plaque stand, the custom designed Master Replicas blaster display stand and acrylic dust cover.
The seller claims it has been displayed in a glass cabinet free from dust in a pitch black, air-conditioned room and, most of all, that it is in mint condition, just like new.
It has never been handled by hands other than with cotton gloves when it first went on display and when it was packed up.
The bids started at only 99c, but as I write this they are up to $760. This is a high demand, rare collectible, so if you want it, this might be your only chance to get in and bid. The link you need is below (where you can also see a lot more images):
