Optional Accessories

Items below are optional costume accessories. These items are not required for approval, but if present appear as described below.


TR ROTJ DH-17Blaster.jpg DH-17 Blaster
For 501st approval:

Manufactured by BlasTech Industries, the DH-17 is a standard-issue Imperial sidearm for shipboard combat. The energy and power of the weapon are tuned to penetrate necessary targets, yet it will not puncture a starship's hull.


  • Scratch built or high-end prop replica.



TK anh stunt e11.jpeg E-11 Blaster
For 501st approval:

Manufactured by BlasTech Industries, the E-11 is standard-issue for many Imperial troops. Light, compact yet powerful, the E-11 blaster is always in high demand throughout the galaxy.

  • Based on a real or replica Sterling sub-machine gun, scratch-built, or a modified commercial toy Stormtrooper blaster.
For level two certification (if applicable):
  • Folding stock.
    • Stock does not need to function.
  • A real or replica ammo counter - based off of a Hengstler counter - should be present.
  • D-ring mounted on the rear.
  • Correct style scope.
  • Two power cylinders on the magazine.
  • Scratch-built, resin cast, Hyperfirm rubber cast blasters should have a total of 6 t-racks on blaster (leaving the lowest row on the Hengstler side un-covered).
  • Popular commercially available toy Stormtrooper blasters have a total of 7 T-racks (if you cover all the rows of holes) or 6 T-racks (if you cover the "open row" of holes on the Hengstler side.
  • Below this, you must grind off the lower T-rack and drill a new row of holes).


Generic-dl44.jpg DL-44 Blaster Pistol
For 501st approval:

Manufactured by BlasTech Industries, the DL-44 Blaster has the ability to charge a heavier blast, nearly twice as powerful as similar pistols. Because the sidearm is highly modifiable and is one of the few blasters shown to have the ability to penetrate imperial armor, the Empire has placed heavy restrictions on this model and in many cases ownership is outlawed outside of imperial forces.

  • Scratch built or high-end prop replica.



Crl-genericholster.jpg Holster
For 501st approval:
  • Holster is the appropriate color and style for the specific blaster.
    • Holster is not present if no blaster is carried.
