Custom STAR WARS Electronic E-5 Battle Droid Blaster Prop Replica

Here’s a pretty sweet looking custom Star Wars E-5 Battle Droid Blaster prop replica that’s perfect for cosplay or display.

It features working red lights and blaster sounds when the trigger is pulled.

You can see the weapon in question in the image above (Note: The display stand in the image above is not included.) 

It’s a custom painted version of the original 1999 released Hasbro electronic E-5 droid blaster as shown below:

What’s pretty special is that the seller is offering the custom version painted version on Ebay at a buy it now of only $32.95. That’s an absolute bargain given it not only looks like a metal weapon but that if you want to buy the original Hasbro toy it will cost you more than that. Just check out the original on Amazon to see for yourself.

Or, this one:

So as you can see the price being asked on Ebay is a steal.

If you want one of these be careful. I’ve noticed there’s a lot of what fans are calling “bait and switch” going on from less than reputable sellers. What they do is advertise the Force FX lightsaber, charge you a cheaper price than you’d otherwise pay, and then ship you a standard FX lightsaber or an Ultimate FX lightsaber. The upshot is you think you’re paying less for a Force FX but what you’re actually doing is paying more for a much, much inferior product.

Of course, sometimes sellers put the right price on the product to convince you it is the right product, only to still ship you the wrong product. In some cases they do this deliberately, and perhaps in others the sellers don’t really understand what the difference is between a Force FX, Ultimate FX, or FX model.

The following links lead to actual Force FX lightsabers. If you purchase in any other way from any other dealer I highly recommend taking every precaution you can to ensure you get what you’re after.

This is Hasbro’s latest STAR WARS Force FX Lightsaber Prop Replica based on Anakin Skywalker’s (Hayden Christensen) blue lightsaber from the Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

It features durable die-cast metal parts and is built sturdy enough to give it an authentic feel.

The blade is blue, just like in the movie, achieved via a polycarbonate blade that is permanently attached to the hilt.

Also features realistic power-up and power-down glowing light effects.

Anakin’s Force FX Lightsaber also includes a digitally recorded and motion-sensor-controlled authentic sound effects such as power-up, power-down, idle, movement sounds, and clash sounds. That’s pretty cool, although batteries aren’t included, which isn’t cool. But it’s a small price to pay!

Hasbro advertise each lightsaber as being a fully functioning replica featuring all the lights, sounds, and heft of the actual weapon. I don’t know about “fully functioning”, since it’s not, well, an actual sword laser. That and if you want something to have a real lightsaber fight with I don’t recommend this. It will work for some light bashing, but that’s about it. Nonetheless, we’ll look past that because those don’t really exist. Just sayin.

In any case, this is an awesome lightsaber replica recommended for any avid Star Wars fan.

As a footnote, the hilt on this one is black. I notice in all the promo images for this there’s a box in which the hilt is silver. I believe that relates to the removable blade version. So yes, the box in the images promoting this product is misleading because this one has a permanently attached blade and the hilt is black.
