STAR WARS Imperial E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster

The STAR WARS Imperial E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster 1/6 scale movie weapon replica is pure joy to look at.

Manufactured by Sideshow Collectibles, the Imperial army’s E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster is a powerful blaster. It features a portable power generator with conduit hose that can be positioned up and down or from side to side to create a custom display.

Measures: 8.5″ H (215.9mm) x 10″ W (254mm) x 10″ L (254mm)

It’s the perfect complement to the STAR WARS Snowtrooper Sixth Scale Figure, the newest entry in the Militaries of Star Wars Sixth Scale collection. 

Backstory:

With the introduction of the E-Web heavy repeating blaster, formally titled the Emplacement Weapon, Heavy Blaster, troopers were able to fire at an optimum range of two-hundred meters and a maximum range of five-hundred meters. Although it was the most powerful repeating blaster in the Imperial arsenal, it was restricted by certain limitations. E-Web blasters required a relatively lengthy set-up time, including assembly, calibrating the generator, and configuring of the targeting software. They also operated most efficiently with a two-man team, the first to man the gun itself, the second responsible for monitoring and adjusting the power generator, which, like all generators of its time was prone to overheating. Regardless, the E-Web, equipped with a built in comlink and computerized fire control, served as an highly effective and powerful tool for the Imperial army, making significant appearances in an attempt to murder Obi-Wan Kenobi, at the Battle of Praesitlyn, and perhaps most successfully during the Galactic Civil War at the Battle of Hoth.

As of yet Sideshow haven’t declared whether this will be a limited edition item or not (I’ve included it in the Limited Edition section of the site just in case). However, it may yet be, so don’t miss out just in case.

It’ll set you back only $149.99.
