TR ROTJ DH-17Blaster.jpg DH-17 Blaster

  • 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.

  • Folding stock.
