Andy,

Thks for the complement!

I COULDN"T have done it with out all YOUR hard work.
(OR all the REST of the members who's photo's were used for that matter)

If you have some shots of the correct (or tell me were I can find them on this site) holsters I will swap them out.

Here is a revised version with your latest data and corrected MiM photos witch I know are MiM as I bought this from MiM in 02 (?) and just sold it to a collector in Switzerland recently.

(Also corrected some dyslexic typo's of my own) PKD instead of PDK. Dh'o!

Enjoy!

Best regards,
ocd

As far as I have figured out Monsters in Motion had not made their own version of the guns. They sold other people's versions including the original resin "Offworld" gun versions, and now the Tomenosuke. They also sold Rick's PKD's and a few others. It is also possible they had also recast some of the early resin kits to meet demand. They were the first to pre-sell and show off the prototype "Offworld" factory made model. The prototype actually showed up at the same Worldcon as the Hero gun in 2006.

Andy,

The one that I am showing on pg 15 was one of the first versions MiM sold in (02? bad memory) it was/is an all resin kit with all internal
working parts & lighting components. I did NOT light it.
At the time I did not have a clue on how to do it. Nor was I able to get the trigers to function. The resin would not hold up to the stress so I built it as static.

The internal cylinder swings out and rotates, along with the cocking side bolt being able to slide. Most of the 3 mm hex head screws are real.

As many other enthusiast did I'm sure, when Mr Tate photographed the "REAL" one I re painted it to match as close as possible.
Along with adding the side wiring, lower ammo light, green LED, etc. It is slightly smaller than an Offworld, plus the handle is on more of an angle with a closer fit to the body of the blaster.

At this point I think it looks ALOT like one of the early Coyle blasters they possibly used as a model to work from. Just guessing on my part.

As to just were MiM acquired it to sell,..?? So it IS a MiM version.

When I bought it at the time I did not know much about the BLDR history etc. Having joined your BLDR site that has changed for the better.


On a side note, this MiM Blaster was imported to Switzerland and was/is registered as a firearm due to Swiss customs restrictions.
Go figure.

Keep up the outstanding job you are doing w/ propsumit .com.

Thank you!

Best regards,
ocd
