Nerf Vortex Proton Blaster

Normally I never post a weapon that isn’t a replica from a movie, TV series, video game or comic. But today I’m breaking my own rule because after staring in amazement at the images of this modified Nerf vortex proton blaster I just had to post it.

If you didn’t know, Nerf is a toy brand owned by Hasbro that produces mostly foam based toy weaponry. Those toys are made of plastic and they fire foam bullets. You can find them on Amazon .

In the following image you can see a comparison of the original toy versus what it now looks like thanks to some incredible professional custom modification work:

Custom-Nerf-Vortex-Proton-Blaster

Seriously, that’s just outright amazing. If you didn’t see the toy in the first place you’d have absolutely no idea that this isn’t a full metal weapon.

The seller refers to this as the ‘Blade Runner’ special custom heavy metal version. It features a brushed metal weathered look derived from 4 coats of paint and a matte finish to protect the paint. 

Like the original toy this gun can still fire Nerf foam discs, 3 of which are included.

The workmanship is clearly studio grade judging by the images and as claimed in the product listing. Interestingly, the seller states the pictures don’t do the blaster justice and that most buyers are more impressed by the real-life prop than by these images. If that’s true then this is certainly an impressive weapon to add to your sci-fi weapon collection. It’s a toy made for firing too, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be used for cosplay or even LARP.

At only $39.99 it’s a mere $20 more than the standard retail price of the toy which blows my mind.

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:

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Starfleet Phaser Replica (1)

Here’s a limited edition special Star Trek Into Darkness gift set that includes a Quantum Mechanix replica phaser.

If you’re wondering why I put a ? on the end of this title it’s because I’m not 100% certain that this is a Star Trek Into Darkness phaser replica. It might be although it looks exactly like the QMx replica phaser based on the stunt weapon used in J.J. Abrams’ 2009 film Star TrekIf so, that’s not a bad thing either since the same weapon is going for $100 on Ebay.

Or it might simply be the same design or extremely similar as used in the new film. Either way here’s a few more images:
