If you want one of these be careful. I’ve noticed there’s a lot of what fans are calling “bait and switch” going on from less than reputable sellers. What they do is advertise the Force FX lightsaber, charge you a cheaper price than you’d otherwise pay, and then ship you a standard FX lightsaber or an Ultimate FX lightsaber. The upshot is you think you’re paying less for a Force FX but what you’re actually doing is paying more for a much, much inferior product.

Of course, sometimes sellers put the right price on the product to convince you it is the right product, only to still ship you the wrong product. In some cases they do this deliberately, and perhaps in others the sellers don’t really understand what the difference is between a Force FX, Ultimate FX, or FX model.

The following links lead to actual Force FX lightsabers. If you purchase in any other way from any other dealer I highly recommend taking every precaution you can to ensure you get what you’re after.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VI – RETURN OF THE JEDI Biker Scout Blaster Prop Replica

Star Wars Return of the Jedi Biker Scout Blaster Prop Replica

Check out this brilliant looking life-size prop replica of the Biker Scout’s blaster as featured in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

This is a 1:1 scale high quality filled resin replica of the original Biker Scout blaster made for the film by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). 

Many weapons in Star Wars were made from existing guns that ILM modified into sci-fi blasters. This one was an exception where ILM created the weapon as a custom single piece with a British made “Singlepoint Scope” mounted on the right side using half of a Webley scope ring. 

The artisans at Modelers or Mice have gone out of their way to replicate the original weapon just as ILM envisioned it, although in this case the entire gun is sculpted (no external attachments). That makes this weapon replica a screen accurate weapon to ILM’s vision rathre than a replica of the original on set prop which, in my view, is perfect.

STAR WARS Biker Scout Blaster

This is definitely the kind of replica Star Wars fans should jump on, not only because it’s very accurate to the screen used weapon but also because the Biker Scout’s blaster is not typically an easy replica weapon to find.

$97 is the price being asked as a Buy it Now direct from the artisans own Ebay store:
