Battlestar Galactica Blaster Prop Replica

Check out this rare prop replica of the Battlestar Galactica season one standard-issue Colonial sidearm that’s gone up for auction on Ebay.

That’s the Syfy series and not the original 1970’s/80’s BSG.

From the seller:

This Season 1 GALACTICA BLASTER is a highly-detailed, expertly-crafted prop replica. It is brand new, straight from the shop, and has not been displayed or previously owned. This is not a typical solid prop. It is cast in several separate components, which allow an unmatched level of detail. The body of the blaster is a two-part clamshell which bolts over a solid resin replica revolver (exactly as it was done for the show). The use of aluminum-filled resin allows for extremely realistic weathering. The grip panels are separate and bolt on just like the originals. The woodgrain on the grips is cast into the resin for a durable and authentic appearance. The side switches are cast metal for added durability. The piece is cast in aluminum-filled urethane resin. This prop is not based on an Airsoft and has NO MOVING PARTS.  The entire unit weighs just under a pound.

Take a look at an image of the weapon as seen in the actual Syfy series:

If you think this looks similar to the Blade Runner blaster you’d be right. The standard-issue Colonial sidearm was based on the Blade Runner blaster. You can learn more about the weapon on the BSG Wiki and on the IMFDB.

The auction is currently up to $175 and only has one day to go. 

Head to Ebay if you want a shot at owning this for yourself.

Here’s a great opportunity.

You may already know that for $89.88 you can purchase (from Amazon) a BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Colonial Warrior Blaster Prop Replica Kit. It’s a kit that enables you to build a resin cast prop replica of the Colonial Blaster as seen in the original Battlestar Galactica TV series.

A fan has assembled the kit, finished it with several thin layers of paint in which each layer was wetsanded with a high grit sand paper, and now put it up for auction on Ebay. Although made from a kit, given this is personally painted and finished I’m going to say its a one-of-a-kind.

The starting bid is at $99.99, but if you want a cool looking Colonial Blaster without all the work of doing it yourself, this is your chance.
