Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope Stormtrooper Blaster

Jan 23, 2019

The legendary Han Solo always preferred a quick-shooting blaster at his side over the elegance of a lightsaber, and although we love both Star Wars weapons, Solo makes a solid case for shooting bolts of intense plasma energy. Up for grabs is a rare E-11 Stormtrooper blaster used in the film that started it all: Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.

This E-11 blaster was constructed specifically for the first Star Wars film by famed cinema weaponry manufacturer Bapty, who also crafted the weapons for The Empire Strikes Back. The blaster was made from a sterling body tube, a central wooden dowel, and customized aluminum parts. The Prop Store restored various parts of the movie blaster, including the M38 scope, T-track strips on the barrel, magazine cylinders, and a steel scope rail. The E-11 blaster wears its production scuffs and scratches proudly. Now is your chance to own a part of Star Wars history.
